Here at Self Edge we don't want to carry every brand, i want to carry what is near impossible to get, brands that are the best of the best and nothing less. Brands that have history and are here to stay for years to come.

thats so GANGSTA. I have to cop some iron hearts just on principle.

still offered...

prices:

top button $26 (x1)

button fly: $22 (x4)

rivets: $12 (x6) do not change hidden rivets

=$186

this is only offered on 45rpm denim and currently (this might change) the jeans must be sent back to Japan to have the hardwear changed.

holy shit! that's a lot of work, time, and money for some fucking silver rivets!!

Ironhearts are some of the toughest jeans in existence, although I think that the stitching on the comparatively light 19 ounce Samurai models is stronger. (Try repairing a blown crotch stitch on a pair of 21 ouncers - it's like sewing rawhide.) The silver rivets (I don't have them, but a friend does) are certainly interesting, giving the jean a more refined look, the way a pair of jeans with light yellow stitching (especially aroung the pockets) does when compared against a similar pair with darker, orange or orange-yellow stitching. I think that it is cool that BIG and Self Edge carry different brands (although I am sort of biased towards the brands that BIG carry, like SDA, John Bull and Fullcount, which, imo, make more flattering cuts than some of the more repro-true brands). I'm interested in seeing the Self Edge X Ironheart jeans when I go for my annual pilgrimage to San Francisco.

And Nudies are really popular in the Mission District? Two years ago, the only place that sold them was Rolo, and the guy working there was saying that they couldn't even sell the raws because people didn't like how they felt. Oh, how times change...

Hey all, new to the boards but I met another Superfuture member at the Self Edge party who said I really oughtta sign up.

The party was great and I took a few pics. There were a lot of big-name faces in the crowd! I fell in love with this Iron Heart jacket and thankfully I didn't spend rent buying it ("forgot" the credit card at home). Might have to pick it up next week tho ;-)

I also conducted a Self Edge interview (which I'm sure you've already seen) a week or so back.

word. thanks for reading.

the IH looks just like a motorcycle jacket except in denim.

i was torn between the 38 (too tight) and the 40 (too loose). wish there was a 39...

either way, i couldnt take it off. now i dream about it.

do you dream in denim too?

      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**.

      Released in 2008, these jeans are rare as hens teeth.

      Front rise 10"
