Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

Recommended Posts

my size 28 f310s are kind of big on me now after a few months of wear, so I'm hoping that the size 28 in these should offer a more snug fit on my tiny asian frame. Especially after a hot soak.

i'm not sure what the self edge staff recommends, but i would recommend (assuming they aren't tight or too snug) to give them a warm soak when you get them. that way the fading will start off right and there will be less shrinkage later.

Well you'll end up soaking them eventually right? and they'll shrink. and fades might be in weird places after they shrink?

But maybe you can pull it off, sidney is doing it right? I'm pretty sure he knows what he's doing so yeah.

edit: I guess he deleted his post?

For sure. I want them to be a slimmer fit for me, so I was torn between the 33 and 34. May have a change of heart and switch sizes before shipping. But like you said, there's still shrinkage to take into account.

i would say it's safer to go for the larger size. they'll probably fit great after a soak, and then stretch out comfortably. if they stretch out too much, though, a hot soak down the road should tighten 'em up quite nicely. you've probably got an athletic build and you'll most likely appreciate the extra room in the waist, if the 34 is slightly loose.

--

on another note, looking at the measurements of the SE05BSP, it looks like the thigh is the only area of the jeans that is forgiving. i'm assuming this will change a bit after washes and soaks, as even a raw 28 has a thigh measurement (10.9") around what i'm used to.

When's those slim Iron Hearts expected to be released? How might they compare to the previous Selfedge collabs?

was really excited to see the Buzz Rickson logo on the online shop. Kiya do you have an estimate on when you'll have Buzz Rickson products up on the site? Thanks.

A few things..

-I'm seeing people aren't understanding the sizing on the SE05BSP.. they run two sizes smaller than the rest of the regular Flat Head line-up, which means go UP two sizes

-Slim Iron Hearts are coming in December

-Buzz Rickson is being launched with a US Navy Chambray shirt this week with more products coming in every two weeks and a William Gibson release party (with the man himself) during the first week of November for the Buzz Rickson x William Gibson sneakers (brown or black, both in hi's and low's), and the Buzz Rickson x William Gibson x Headporter bag collection.

The Flat Head SE05BSP Slim Tapered Jean

We're happy to introduce Flat Head's newest cut, the SE05BSP. This jean is a slim tapered cut with a button fly. This is not to be confused with the SEXFH05, which was a modified 3001 cut. This is a completely new fit, not based on any previous models.

Indigo half-arcuates, button fly, 14.5oz Japanese Selvedge Denim, tapered leg, extra thick leather tag, and a slim fit round out this new jean from Flat Head.

With the SE05BSP the jean is perfect for those looking for a slim modern cut with a small leg opening.

These run about two sizes smaller than the rest of the Flat Head line-up, size up one or two sizes from your usual size depending on how slim you'd want them to be.

Check the online store for more information on the SE05BSP and more photos:

Kiya, I noticed that in the description for SE05BSP and SEXFH05 it says the denim is rope dyed.

Is it only your collaboration Flatheads that are rope dyed? Is it the whole Flathead line?

And, them being rope dyed, does that imply that they hold their indigo a lot longer than the non rope dyed Flatheads?

I guess it would all depend on how many dips they get.

Sounds about right, yes.. for a super slim fit yes.

If you want some more room go for the 30.

mmm i like my jeans like my women, tight :)

29s it is. i still feel like the thighs in my sexsc02s aren't that tight, and it looks like the se05bsp measurements are a bit looser on the thighs anyway

Distribution has been made for Japan, U.S. release has been changed to 'pending' as far as I know.

It's the waist measurement that is significantly smaller. Regardless of the thigh measurement, the waist is killer compared to the usual FH fit.

it would feel odd ordering a 36 in these. i'm a 34 in SEXSC02 and 33 in SEXFH05. The waist would be fine in a 36 I guess but the thigh is fuller than I'd like. hmmm....what to do.

Size up one from your normal true waist (like FH3001) if you're hesitant. The same rules apply just make note the waist will feel a bit tighter than usual.

Sizing up two are for those who are less adventurous.

I would have gotten a size 29 (if I could of).

I got a 32 in the SE05BSP and i'm finding it hard to go back to my regular jeans, i love the fit on these...

      Worn probably 10-12 times, barely any fades. For those who've been around these forums for a long time, they remember how awesome these jeans were when they first came out.
      Retail was $375 USD. Looking for $185 USD OBO.
      Best way to contact me is [email protected]
      Waist: 31.5"
      Inseam: 31.5"
      Thigh: 11"
      Hem: 7.5"





      One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. 

      The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

      Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz. Hailing from Australia, the website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
      Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

      Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

      This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

      IRON HEART 633s size 32 - imgur link photos taken by a window with natural light. 
       
      I've been wearing these for close to 2.5 months now. The waist has gotten a bit too big on me and I find that they fade too slowly. They're still more comfortable at 21oz. than most raw denim I've ever worn, though. 
       
      Whiskers are starting to break through, wallet fade is fairly clearly defined on the back left pocket, and while the comb wrinkles are fairly defined, there's almost no evo on the combs, knees, or thighs. These have so much life left in them that your wear will surely overshadow mine in the long run. 
       
      At 36" these are ready to be hemmed to your desires. I have not washed them since purchasing them. 
       
      Measurements (the [iron Heart](http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0) way):  
      Waist: 17.5" across  
      Front Rise: 10.5"  
      Rear Rise: 15.5"  
      Thigh: 12.5"
      Knee (13" down from crotch seam): 8.75"  
      Leg Opening/Hem: 7.6"  
      Inseam: 36"  
       
      Asking **$200 OBO**.
