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

Recommended Posts

Kiya, good lookin t-shirts. what is meant by "indigo black" (overdyed?)? and how much shrinkage can we expect? thanks

The tees are rinsed so shrinkage is minimal. Depending on the amount of enzymes added to an indigo vat you can get indigo to look more sky blue or so dark that it looks near black (called Indigo Black in textile terms). So no, it's not over dyed, the fibers themselves are dyed in a vat adjusted so create an extremely dark indigo color.

Huh! Heirloom shirts are rad. Any insight into the different fading dynamics of the different dyes/fabrics, Kiya?

Hey Kiya would one need to worry about indigo bleeding from the heirloom shirts? Rather find out early than get out of my car and see blue tint on the leather haha

They shouldn't bleed that much, they've been rinsed twice.

those tees are the fucking sex.

see if he can do polos next?

Maybe, it's not really his aesthetic but we never know.

dkatz - look on page 47 of the 45rpm thread - a good indication of indigo dyed t-shirt fading over time.

Kiya, does Roy have any plans do to work shirts in the future?

I'm so impressed with the rs04's that he has me as a customer for life. These jeans are such a marked improvement on the rs2's--and they were an impressive pair to begin with-- I previously owned that it's essentially night and day when comparing the two. Major props to Roy, Kiya and cone for coming together and making such an extraordinary article of clothing. (It'll be hard to wear anything else.)

Roy will eventually do jackets and shirts but on his own timing and terms. We're hoping to see a shirt and a jacket by the end of the year. The jacket he made me is amazing, its new meets old in a very cool way.

kiya, i saw those heirloom tees in your site earlier this week and wanted to ask if the S is really 39'. coz it'll be mad huge for me (even if it shrinks after soak/wash), the thermal in S is actually perfect but then i live in south-east asia which is crazy warm and (you know the whine) no chance to wear it at all.

good that u're carrying the brand, saw it in Tokyo last year and the material is beautiful. but the size they had was an L/XL which would become a giant tunic so... please help, thanks :)

Glad you got to see the tees in person, they're pretty amazing. The reason the sizing is like that is because the thermal tee is supposed to be worn tight and the pocket tees are supposed to be worn loose, so really the sizing is standard across the two.

Summer Madness from Toyo's Star of Hollywood and Sun Surf

The wildest shipment of the year just arrived and it's definitely pushing the envelope of patterned shirts. We've received over ten different shirts from Star of Hollywood and Sun Surf. Both of these collections are produced by Toyo, the same company behind Mister Freedom, Sugar Cane, and Buzz Rickson.

These shirts are not only made with the utmost attention to detail (think pressed coconut fiber buttons) but in Japan this release is one of the most collectible due to it's super limited production run. Toyo spends most of the year perfecting the fabrics for these shirts, making sure that every shade and stitch is exactly as it should be and even weaving in hemp in with the cotton at times to make sure the hand-feel is exactly how they need it to be.

Along with these shirts we've also received some amazing bandanas which are made of some of the fabrics which the shirts are also made from, these are available in-store at SESF and SELA. If you'd like to order one of these email us and we'll sort you out, they're available for $95 each.

All these shirts are available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store, check the online store for more photos, prices, measurements, and more. These will sell out quite fast, if the online store has sold out of your size there is a chance we may still have the shirt at SELA or SENY, email us or call the stores and we'll sort you out.

Info on the jacket won't be out till September.

The 8301s will have blacked out stitching, other than the red "W" on the back right pocket there's no other contrast stitching.

      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**.
