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

Recommended Posts

I need to get my SG3105 hemmed, and I will be in NYC on 9/18 and will be in the city again on 9/23. I don't know the turn around for a hem, but could I expect them to be done in just 4 days?

 

Completely understand if its not enough time, just looking to avoid the shipping cost if possible.

Thanks!

 

Try and get the jean to us early (around noon) on 9/18 and we'll do our best to make sure they're done by 9/23.

For those of you who got the Roy shirt - how is the fit? If anyone can compare to Iron Heart shirts it'd be greatly appreciated. The medium measurements look about right for me (am a large in IH), but I see people saying that they're glad they didn't size down...

 

For the sake of my bank account, hopefully that one last medium disappears before I figure it out.

 

They run true to size, i'd say the sizing is closer to American/European sizing than Japanese sizing.

Hi Kiya,

 

I have the SG 2109's in a size 36.  The fit is good for me.  The 2109's did not shrink very much when I soaked them. 

 

Question #1 - I noticed the measurements on the 3109's is a bit smaller in the rise and leg opening compared to the 2109s.  Do you feel this is a noticable difference when worn?  I ask because I worry the rise may run a little short after soaking them.

 

Question #2 - Have you noticed a difference in shrinkage  amounts between the 2109 & 3109.

 

Lastly I congratulate you guys on the Portland store.  Portland is a great city and now it has a great denim shop.

 

Thanks

Answer #1 - Its not noticeable when worn, the difference in the measurement is extremely small and the overall fit is very close.

 

Answer #2 - Nope, they both shrink about the same which is .75" to 1" in the waist and 2" in the length

Roy's next release is a different shirt, should be out in about 6 weeks.  His studio/machines are all set up for shirts right now and its a lot of work for him to tune them and set the up for jeans so he's going to take advantage of the current set-up and do another shirt.

man, it's frantic here....

 

so to please my friend K, here are my 2 cents pics.....

 

first the SEDB. worn one day, no rinse or wash, since i think it's been done already..... and you will notice the variety of threads colors. 

 

9467421414_d15a46f3ca_c.jpg
 
 
 

 

second the SG The Gold one.... 2 years old, with a leg repair i did because the exhaust pipe of my bike burnt the right leg.  repair denim comes from MF vaqueros parts.

So long, Sufu friends. And have a nice party in Oregon K :)
 
 
EDIT 
 
i forgot to mention that the SEDB is a masterpiece. go and get it. 
 
second the SG will stretch a lot imo.... mine gained more than one inch on waist band...i don't know if it has been reported but it is my experience.

How much shrinkage is to be expected on the SE05BSP? I've heard flat heads shrink like crazy. Also are they in stock in SESF?

Hey Kiya,

 

I'm interested in the Iron Heart IH 8301s SBG. If I was a 34 in the IH 301s-07BK, would I also be a 34 in the IH 8301s SBG? I ask because the waist measurements between the two are very different on the Self Edge website. If not, what size would you recommend?

 

Also, are you guys planning on getting any other overdyed jeans anytime soon?

 

Thanks!

They shrink one full size, shrinkage info is at the bottom of the product page and SESF's current stock is shown on the website.  A restock is coming on saturday or so.

If you're a 34 in the 301s-07bk you'd be a 33 in the 8301s.

Hi Kiya,

 

How does the fit of the Stevenson La Jolla 727 compare to the Iron Heart 7301's & 301's.  I understand the denim is different between the two.  I have both the 301's and the 7301's in a 36 and wonder how the Stevenson 727 in a size 34 would compare.

 

Thanks

I'd say the fit would be similar but the Stevenson wouldn't be as slim overall as the 301s fit from Iron Heart.  You'll love the details of this jean, they're quite amazing.

I will be at the SF store this weekend. Do you guys have the Stevenson Loop Wheeled T's there to try on? 

I wear a 40 in FH that is kind of a boxier fit, wanted a similar fit with these but don't know if the length will be to long on my short torso.

 

Debating between Medium and Small

Yes, we have the tees there but not in every size, if you try on the size we do have you can probably figure out your size and order online.

What's the best way to get some more shrinkage out of my SEXDB19? (If there is any)

Originally did a 45 minute hot soak in the tub with agitation, maybe a gentle warm wash in the washing machine (no detergent of course).

Haven't done any measurements yet.

To get max shrinkage you'll have to tumble dry them, but that'll soften the denim a significant amount. I would just do another 45 minute hot water soak then air dry.

if i am a 32 in the rjb 105bsp (34 waist), 32 in roy rs03 (33 waist), 32 in ih 634s (32 waist), would a 33 in SExDB19 work for me or do I want a 32? rise looks low like the rjb, so 33 looks like the better option

Yup, the 33 should be perfect for you after a hot water soak.

Kiya,

What differences do you perceive between Globe Specs' The Monty and Ray Ban's Clubmasters in terms of fit ?

Also is there a restock scheduled on these in case the last one online goes ?

Thanks

The Monty is a slightly smaller frame overall and the feel of the materials is far nicer than whats found on even vintage Clubmasters.

If you want it i would buy it asap because there are no restocks on these, they're seasonal.

After the "interesting" conversation between my wife and I over the cost of a certain MF-produced bandana ("Yeah, but its limited edition..."), it was quite welcome for her to send me casually and merrily on my way back to Self-Edge PDX.  
 
The hits of the night included beer by Bridgeport, a peek at the darning and chainstitching machines, a visit from Roy Slaper (who is quite tall in person, and who I heard ask, more than once, "Well, what's your favorite Murakami novel?")
 
Tyler (who I referred to as Zach several times over the evening, as I had been awake for the better part of about 30 hours by that point, exacerbated by free beer) and I nerded out over a few products, Kiya and I watched Roy think about fixing an armoire, I watched Kiya juggle a few hundred thought processes and relationships effortlessly and seamlessly, and in the end, I made off with the beautiful SE 1937 Zippo (purchased at a price more in line with my wife's thinking...).  A fun time was had by all.
