Can you state what's the model's usual size or what size is the model wearing? As such, may be one can judge better on the fit. 

Just a suggestion as I think this would help online buyers.

Josh Harris is 6' tall and 165 lbs. and he's wearing a size 31 thats unwashed. He's normally a true 32 in all jeans we sell.

Hey Kiya, what exactly is the difference between the denim used for the RS03, RS04 and the SF01? The descriptions for all three seem the same. I love my 04s and am trying to decide on whether to spring for the SFs as well.

The denim is the same for all three of those models, the difference is all the details and fits are tweaked. The details of the SF01 changed a lot from the RS04 as you can tell from the descriptions and photos.

The Roy Indigo Slub-Striple "Portland" Shirt

Roy's been hiding away in his studio for the past four months working on honing his shirt making skills. His first shirt release, which sold out in minutes, was a simple chambray shirt with some fun detailing. With this next shirt he's taken his production techniques and stepped them up a few notches all while using a fabric thats rarely seen outside of Japan. Roy has expressed that he's never spent this much time on each garment as he did with this run of shirts due to some of the complicated detailing.

The fabric on the "Portland" shirt is an American cotton lightly slub-striped selvedge textile from Japan's Rampuya mill thats been sanforized. The shirt features deadstock depression-era milky glass buttons, chainstitch run-off, selvedge accented gusseted sideseams, chainstitch embroidered hidden "Roy", 3-needle felling, and extra buttons in a hidden cyanide pill-pocket at the bottom tip of the placket, because as Roy says, "They'll never take you alive".

This shirt will go on sale at noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores on Saturday, August 3rd, and will be available online at 10am (PDT) the same day.

Roy's New 11oz Denim "Big Bro" Jean

We've got a new jean from Roy Slaper coming and it's a doozy. This model has a newly developed lightweight fabric, clocking in at 11oz per square yard in its raw state. The fabric has a very vintage feel and shade to it, being very close to the Deeptone denim Cone offered in the early 40's.
The fit comes in somewhere between his last two releases (The Buck-Tite and the SF-01), with it being easy to size down a bit for a slimmer fit or go up a size and get a straight fit without making the jean look too baggy.

Also, this new model has some details which are new to Roy's jeans such as tin-plated brass buttons, two-prong copper plated brass rivets, a mini steel buckle-back, and a few other details that you'll discover yourself.

These jeans will go on sale at Noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores on Saturday, October 19th and at 10am (PDT) in our online store on the same day.

Check the product page for full measurements, a full spec list, more info, and high-res photographs.

Hi, These looks nice! But no pictures of the back pockets?? Is there some surprise waiting in the back...

as you say yourself: "...few other details that you'll discover yourself"

If yes, then I hope it will be something more subtle than Momotaro/Evisu style painted stripes!

Hi guys,

I just bought a pair of Roy RN04 today. Nice fit and great fabric. I really like the streaky look on the fabric but have been reading that the streakiness will go away after the initial soak.

I wanted to get your feedback if this is the case with your jeans (i.e. does the streakiness appear after your initial soak)? I would prefer mine to retain the streakiness but I'm also concerned about not doing the initial soak and its potential impact down the road.

Any user experience shared is much appreciated.

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.

Roy's new jeans are Kinda Special.

Roy Slaper is back to making jeans and we think he's created his best fitting jean yet. It's between a slim and straight cut with some taper to the leg using a new 13.75oz loomstate Cone White Oak denim that was developed exclusively for Roy. The denim has a nice heft to it and the fit is just perfect. The fabric's fibers really come alive after the initial soak with a little bit of hairiness which goes away after a week or two of wear. With a denim this rigid we're sure to see some wild worn in pairs later this year with a higher contrast wear pattern than his last lighter weight jean release.

Roy is modeling the Kinda Special (KS1001) jean in the photos after being soaked, hemmed, and worn for four weeks. Keep in mind that he sized up one from his true size for a roomier fit. If worn true to size the jean will fit a little slimmer than shown in the photos, yet due to the cut of the upper block it's a jean that can easily be sized up or down for a slimmer or roomier fit without looking sloppy or too snug.

These jeans will go on sale at Noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores on Saturday, May 10th and at 10am (PDT) in our online store on the same day.

Roy "All-Duck" Duck Jeans

Never a dull moment with Roy Slaper. The man lives for finding excitement in the most minute details of a garment. With this new release he set out to made a 5-pocket jean out of an unsanforized duck canvas fabric. This is a similar material to what he's used in the past, this time the fabric is unsanforized and therefore will shrink like an unsanforized denim jean. You may wonder as to why would you want your duck canvas pant to be unsanforized? Because it will not only fit better but it will also age better over time because the fabric hasn't gone through the sanforization process which flattens and (in our opinion) destroys a lot of the character contained within the fabric.

This new version of his duck pant is made entirely of unsanforized cotton duck fabric, even the pocket bags and back pocket linings are made of duck. These are cut in the Kinda Special fit which we think are his best fitting jean yet. It's between a slim and straight cut with some taper to the leg using a unsanforized cotton duck fabric woven by Cone's White Oak mill. The fabric has a good weight to it and feels a bit heavier than the measured weight.

These will be available for sale at all Self Edge stores on Saturday September 6th at noon (local time) and at 9:30am (PDT) the same day via the online store.
