3sixteen+ Indigo-Dyed Linen Shirt & 34BSP Heavyweight Brown Weft Jeans

We've got two new limited edition items from 3sixteen+ this week including a shirt and a pair of jeans.

First we have a short sleeve shirt made of a Japanese pure indigo-dyed linen. The fabric feels cool to the touch and is sure to age well over time as the indigo fades. The fabric was woven in Okayama (Japan) and the shirt was cut and sewn in the USA and comes with natural corozo nut buttons which have already taken on a bit of the color from the indigo fabric.

Recently 3sixteen celebrated their 10th anniversary by creating the Decade Collection, a set of items made to commemorate ten years of being in business, and released at their pop-up shop in NYC. We're happy to announce that we are now carrying one of those items at Self Edge, the 34BSP jean. This is the 30BSP cut, which has turned into one of our most popular fits, in a newly developed 17oz selvedge fabric with a brown pigment dyed weft. This gives the fabric a very unique indigo shade, we're excited to see people wear these in over time, we've had a denim similar to this from Strike Gold and those have looked great over the years.

Both the new indigo-dyed shirt and the 34BSP jean are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. Jeans modeled by SESF's Eugene Terrible, shirt modeled by Josh Harris. Check the online store for full measurements, specs, and high-res photographs.

Clearly a mistake somewhere, but does anyone know if Revolve will be getting more stock?!

Definitely a mistake. We're putting together a shipment for them this week. Sit tight!

Any word on how the sl-130 fits/stretches compared to the sl-100? I'm a 33 in the SL-100 and trying to size a pair in the 130 denim.
post #1581 of 1701

any interest in size 33 st-220x?  I've got a pair (maybe 20 - 25 wears) that are still a little too tight in the thighs for me.

Was thinking about putting them up in the marketplace

post #1582 of 1701
I received the 130 X, they look fantastic. My question, why all these great jeans (3sixteen and all the japanese brands) are not avalaible in shorter lenghts? like 32 and 34, is there a particular reason for this??not everyone in the world like to cuff. Its just a drag all this thing about custom chainstich, different threads, different finish, I dont see any charm on it.


Like I said not everyone like to cuff, and it would be great to buy this sort of jeans with your lenght and ready to go.

I think there are a few reasons.  First off, offering multiple inseam lengths is more complicated than offering just one.  You then have to keep stock of "multiple items", despite them being pretty much the same jeans.

 

Stylistically, right now a lot of people are rocking the cuff, or stacking.  Also, you can always hem, them to be shorter, whereas you can't lengthen jeans.  I'm about 6'3", and as a result, can't wear anything shorter than a 34" inseam (and this is without being able to cuff or stack), so naturally a longer inseam can reach a wider audience.  Furthermore, people like Jay from Blue Owl, or Kiya from SE offer stellar chain-stitching services, and will undoubtedly match the thread color perfectly, or even choose your own to make your jeans unique  Sure you sacrifice the whole, buy em and go aspect, but its just simpler to offer a long inseam, I'd say.  Then again, I'm not a jeans manufacturer, just a consumer.

Well, I see your point like a very optimistic response, millions of manufacturers in the world keep stock in several lenghts like they do in several sizes as well, and jackets and pants etc. I don´t see as a reason "not to keep stock of multiple items".

Sure the chain stiching is close to the original and I am happy for those who enjoy choosing their own color, but that´s not my case and I am sure many people think the same way. I would like to buy a pair of jeans of this quality with a perfect finish and no alterations. Is there a reason for not offering 32 and 34 lenghts?

Offering multiple lengths require different patterns to be cut as well as create more waste fabric after cutting which would drive up costs. Also selvedge denim is in shorter supply than wide loom non selvedge jeans because of how the fabric is made. The result of having multiple lengths is the need of more fabric, higher costs, and the higher potential for left over inventory because the length is too short. With longer lengths, you can alter them shorter so it can be accessible to anybody who needs any length up to the maximum length and allows people to hem them to their desired length. With that said if you really want a length 32 jean, I believe rrl has them

The answer to the first part of your question is: there are lots of reasons to buy 3sixteen denim, but if you're looking for a reason NOT to buy them, then perhaps not having a 32 length is one of them. There are other brands that offer that length, as you say, though honestly the list grows much shorter when you add the "of this quality" (esp if you consider the made in the US part).

The answer to the second is simply: it costs more, all around. The brand has to either pass that cost on to you, the consumer, or make less on each pair. When you're small, the answer is pretty clear.

I guess all this reasons can be fair in the romantic point of view of small companies (3 sixteen plus the Japanese) doing a quality product against the non selvadge major brands, and of course is always going to be better for the manufacturer make a 36 lenght product and let the customer do the rest. But I think that a real top notch product and brand should offer the different lenghts, even if the product is a bit more expensive, I think we all can agree in how cool would be to have jeans in your lenght if you dont like to cuff, and specially if we talk about japanese brands with jeans at almost 400 dollars. That would be another point to discuss, 3sixteen is great quality, and maybe there is not such a big difference with the japanese brands to pay almost double price, the japanes product may be a bit overpriced.

who wears their jeans the same length as normal trousers?  if you look at virtually every picture of people on the SWD side here wearing jeans they are either stacking or have a slight cuff.  

you don't want your jeans to ride half-way up your calf when you sit down...not a good look.  stick with a longer length for a slight stack.  

 

you're sweating the small stuff right now man.  when you order a quality pair of selvedge denim online most retailers offer a free hemming service...not a big deal.

At 5'10", I have to get almost all raw denim hemmed even if I plan to wear them with a single cuff. Typically I double cuff denim until I have put in numerous wears, then get them hemmed. It is good that stores like Self Edge will hem jeans for free right after purchase. It's not a deal breaker, just another step in the process that many would like to avoid. RRL produces raw denim in 30, 32 and 34 inch inseams. I don't understand why other raw denim manufacturers couldn't do the same in at least their most basic, popular models.

On another note, after buying 3sixteen BSPs two months ago, I now need to size down 2-3 sizes from my prior size. I guess losing weight is worth $300.

Congrats!! That is a great accomplishment!

 

I completely agree on the sizing thing. I would gladly pay 3Sixteen an extra $25 to have them in a shorter length. I understand operations and inventory control pretty well so it would not be that hard to model out demand and plan accordingly. They could even take pre-orders into an upcoming production run if they were truly worried about the carrying costs of the inventory.
