Strike Gold Jeans from Japan - Page 6
Styleforum Top Picks
I'd go with a size 32 in those too, we just got a restock today and there's one left here:
Strike Gold came out with jeans just a few years ago for the first time; when we saw the fabric and construction in person we were floored by how such a new company can produce product this good. Last year they did a small run of loopwheeled hoodies and crewneck sweaters, quality so good that we see no reason to carry any other brand's hoodies or basic crewneck sweaters. The fabric is exactly what you want from a hoodie or sweater, it's nearly windproof due to it's outer weave, it's extremely heavy and it's wild soft on the inside. This year they wanted to conquer the loopwheeled t-shirt, and that they did.
We've now got Strike Gold's loopwheeed tees available in both black or white, or a red printed version. The weave they achieved on these is quite special. When you see a well worn in loopwheeled tee you start to see the horizontal weave pattern within the fabric, the longer you wear it and the more you wash it the more you can see this pattern. This is an artifact of the weaving process due to it's speed and gravity tension. Strike Gold's pattern is almost apparent even when the tees are new. The tees have double-stitched sleeves and hem-line, a triple-stitched collar, and is stitched together with 100% cotton thread. Is that too much information about a single t-shirt? Not for us.
All three tees along with a full restock of all four jean models and their amazing belts are available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store.
I know the denim is totally different between the SG1109 and the SG2109, but post-soak does one tend to end up w/ a little more room in the thigh? The notes show different shrinkage rates, and I know it's not an exact thing, but I've always been a fan of these and now I'm looking harder and trying to weigh fit difference (if any) between the two.
Thanks for your time.
Strike Gold is back with more for their winter collection.
We've found the ultimate loopwheeled crewneck sweater. A sweater that is a true loopwheeled fabric, flatlock seam stitched throughout, kitten soft exterior and interior, a beautiful fit, and great detailing that's only noticed by those who've studied the art of the loopwheeled sweater. We know this all sounds like a bit much, but once you see these in person you'll know, there's something very special about them that sets them apart from the rest.
Along with these crewnecks we've received the ultimate zip hoodie. A single panel all around with an opening at the front for a 100% cotton taped zipper and 100% cotton hood pulls. This is taking the idea of a perfect loopwheeled hoodie to an extreme. Combining the fabric that Strike Gold produces with the details like a slim fit and two front patch pockets makes this the hoodie to die with.
All six of these pieces are now available up to x-large.
With these sweaters and zip hoodies we've received a full restock of all four of their jean models along with their popular cod-oil soaked waterproof leather belts. So thick it'll satisfy even the heartiest of hungers if stuck on a deserted island.
All these items are available now at all three Self Edge stores, check the online store for full specs on the sweaters and shirts along with measurements, hi-res photos, and more.

Strike Gold Heavy Loopwheeled Sweatshirt - Black
2109s. I've had them since July, 2012, but didn't wear them that much. Fit is not my favorite (loose in the top half), but the denim is fairly amazing. They have a lot of stretch, so much different then my Momotaros. These suckers bleed like crazy. Only an initial soak so far. They're getting close to being ready for a wash. I'll post more pics after.
Been thinking about getting the 2109 or 1109 (love the former, but the latter seems more practical given the spring and summer coming soon)--typically I wear a 30 in RRL's slim-fit and low-straight washed-denim, anyone familiar with how this compares to the SG cuts?
I would go for the 1105 in size 31.
