Kiya,

 

Do any of your suppliers make a low rise, straight cut jean?

 

Yup, you're looking for the Strike Gold 1105, 2105, or 3105.

maybe kiya or someone can helpe me

ive been wearing a pair of 3sixteen sl100's size 34 for almost a year and i love the fit for the most part.

im starting to look for a new pair of jeans and id just like them to be a little bigger in the thigh/knee than the SL's.

i was thinking about beatle busters but im not sure since they said they fit higher.

can anyone reccomend any pairs/give advice?

ive been looking at measurements for a lot of jeans but i cant find any yet that match what im lookin for

I'd guess you'd be very happy with a pair of IH 634s.  It shares a lot of the things I find favorable about the SL-100x cut wise, but with a slightly higher rise, and a slightly wider, but still straight leg.  It is an incredibly good looking cut on everybody that tries it on, and you can easily take the same size as you take in the SL100x.

so i just made a hilariously stupid fuck up.

 

I ordered a pair of FH BSPs in 31 a while ago. Had them soaked and then got them hemmed at self edge LA. Fit was great, but after trying them on again I felt like the inseam was too short (my fault, not a botched hemming), so I decided to try to sell them on here and just order a new pair to replace them.

 

Well for some reason I thought the BSPs I had were a 32, so I ordered a new pair in 32 to replace them. They felt big pre-soak, but I didn't think much of it since I figured they'd be the same as my other pair once I soaked them. They literally just finished soaking when I took out my older (and hemmed too short) pair of BSPs and noticed that those are actually a 31, not 32.

 

Is there anyyyything self edge can do for me, or am I just totally fucked now and left to re-order another pair yet again, and make sure I get them in 31 this time? The 32's I have are unhemmed, just freshly soaked, and never worn at all. I doubt I can really do much other than sell them here, but figured I'd at least see!

We can't take the jeans which you've soaked back, but we can offer you another pair 40% off retail, which is our cost.  I'm sure you can probably sell the soaked pair fairly quickly and actually come out ahead after the 40% off another pair.

awesome, that's better than anything I was expecting. Can you let me know how I can get the new pair for 40% off? They're sold out in the online store in 31, but I can go down to SENY today to buy them

Jamers,

You are very lucky to have dealt with Self Edge, any other shop would have told you politely to fv*|< off. You really need to engage your brain in future.

This is exactly the kind of thing to think about when considering where to buy your clothes. Yeah, you can get some stuff cheaper from Japan, but it ain't going down like that was just handled if there's a problem.

Nope, those are designed by Tetsuya Okada and custom made for his line, the only way to own one is to buy a pair of the frames.  The cases are very cool but the frames themselves are a work of art.

Yup, it's the 15.5oz 30BSP fabric in our SL and ST cut, with a few special details, such as two-tone stitching, crossed back belt loops and a commemorative leather patch.

I just re-fell in love with my modified type 3 since I managed to stretch out the sleeve opening to avoid it cutting off my circulation.  I can't imagine a better denim jacket than this one.

Cool, thanks K. I'm moving to LA just before New Years so I'll bring them in for a hem and my SExI14 for repairs.

Kiya -- if a new zipper is needed for a repair on vintage jeans do you guys carry vintage zippers? If not, do you have any objection to using a provided vintage zipper? Also, zippers fall under the 40$ umbrella no?

Zippers are the only thing which we'll only repair if the jeans were bought from us, if the jeans weren't bought from us i suggest finding a well trained tailor to replace the zipper tape and pull.

      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**.
