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

Recommended Posts

The 633 (tapered 634s) is being released with the 301s and jacket on January 25th.

 

 

The cuts are fairly similar, i'd say the main difference is how abrasive the denim on the SEXI14 is because of the engineered loom chatter within the denim.  

I think you should look at the 21BSP from 3sixteen+, SE05BSP from Flat Head, or 301s from Iron Heart as your next jean.

 

Hey Kiya,

 

What is the latest on the Iron Heart 633's?

 

Thanks

Roy "Big Bro" Natural Indigo-Dyed Denim Shirt

 

For the start of the new year we have Roy's third shirt release using the most exotic fabric thus far. This shirt is made of a natural indigo-dyed denim produced by Japan's famed Collect Mills which specializes in older dying techniques and using natural plant-based indigo dyes. The fabric's weight clocks in at 8oz per square yard, meaning it can also be used as an overshirt. 

 

This new shirt has a more rugged feel and look to it compared to Roy's past shirts, much of that is attributed to the triple-stitched body, heavier fabric, and the simple solid aluminum cat's eye buttons.

 

One of the details we personally love is the busted selvedge seam up the back of the shirt, over time you'll have jean-like train tracks running up your back. Also, Roy has this wild machine that's able to do a stitch that melts our minds, it's meant to be an invisible hemming machine but to us it looks like a crazy fabric perforator. He's used this machine to hem the front placket of the shirt which also hides the button backs from your body when the shirt is worn.  The gussetted side seams have two layers of fabric accenting the gusset, the denim for durability then the selvedge ID of the deadstock Cone selvedge chambray peaking out behind it for the natural selvedge accent.

 

This is a versatile shirt with an impressive shade of blue due to the natural indigo dye that's going to age well with regular wear and washings. We can't wait to see what these shirts look like after six or twelve months of wear. 

 

This Roy shirt will go on sale at all Self Edge stores at noon (local time) on Saturday, February 1st. The shirt will also go on sale at 10am (PST) the same day in our online store.  This shirt will not be remade or restocked, this is an edition of 80 shirts.

 

Shirt is being modeled by Roy Slaper in an unwashed Medium size.  Check the online store for a full spec list on the shirt, measurements, hi-res photos, and more.

I've never actually owned a straight ahead denim shirt that wasn't a western shirt, but that is going to change with this new Roy shirt.

I was leaning towards a western like the FH Sawstooth but this might've just changed my mind.

Says unwashed, how much shrinkage can you expect with a wash?

 

Also, do the arms settle down. Up by the pit they seem to be quite loose, or is it just me.

Copy paste text, don't quote me...oh wait:
 
"Disclaimer: These shirts are made of sanforized denim, when washed the fabric will shrink ~1" in the length and ~1" in the chest. Please keep this in mind when choosing your size."

I'm wondering if I want to wear it as an over-shirt should I size up?

 

I usually wear a Large in Roy.

If you want to wear it as an overshirt and you were a Large in his past shirts i would get an XL and hot soak it.

Any chance of us getting a pic of the back of the shirt?  I'd love to see how the busted selvedge seam looks...

Would like to see that too, I was reading the description and curios to see what this machine can do.

the machine they're referring to is different from the busted seam. don't have a good picture of the busted seam on the shirtbut it's looks like the out seam of jeans but just up the back of the shirt:

Thanks for the pics. I was a little confused by Kiya's description of "fabric perforator," but that's exactly what it looks like. Makes a lot of sense now.
