Self Edge x Flat Head x RingRing = SEXFHXRR10 - Page 3

post #31 of 38
I reckon the price points sounds about right for a 3-way collab. limited to 140 pairs with brand new specs and denim being sold at a Western retailer. Whether it's worth the price or not - that very subjective; obviously this pair is catering for the nerdiest of denim hobbyists and isn't meant for everybody!

What's with so many comments on the price? Same thing over in the ROY thread, people pissed the price went up from the earlier made pairs. I don't get it. Two years in the making and less than 150 pairs made, I'd say they are a very reasonable price. Nice things cost $/Â¥

Do the subtle differences x collabo really justify the extra cost?

I can answer the first part of your question. When a product gets moved from a regular production line to what's really a sample sewing line, prices regularly double, or more than double. It's just one of those things that's a result of loss of efficiency.

Thanks everyone for all your comments. Very much appreciated.

Special runs of the denim itself also greatly increase the cost of a particular pair of jeans. Not my taste, but I understand the price tag.

Totally right!

RR, just a quick questions about the denim (asked on SuFu thread but it was too much clogged)...
I was wondering about Kiya's explanation for why the LHT fabric has a softer hand than regular RHT fabrics?

I thought the difference is mostly in the processing and spinning of the yarn, and how this affects the subsequent weaving of the fabric. If they wanted to they could make a LHT fabric with similar properties to RHT (but that would defeat the point).

Or, as a fellow member put it, "that RHT 'closes' or locks in the twist of the yarn more, so there's more tension, and it's slightly stronger. LHT, the internal tensions are different, because the yarns are locked less tightly. AFAIK there would only be a difference in feel if the yarn is spun in the same direction for both LHT and RHT".

Mikechh, you are correct, processing and spinning the yarn will effect fabric softness, as will other factors.

Left Hand twill however, will feel a little softer than RHT if the same, Z twist yarn is used. The quote you have added is basically correct. When you touch LHT you're rubbing against the twist of the yarn, so it feels more open and softer.

These are really nice. I'm still not sure how much I like the way slim fits look on me, so I'll likely pass on them, but great work and congrats to everyone involved in the creative process of these!
