Loopwheeled Fabric!

I've seen a spike of interest in loopwheeled fabrics recently so i decided to dig up a few photographs i took of a machine for those that haven't seen what a loopwheeler machine looks like.

There are some serious misconceptions about this fabric.
Just because a fabric has tube construction does not make it loopwheeleed. Also, i'd say that about 50% of the fabric which i've felt and has been marked as loopwheeled was NOT actually loopwheeled, it's just tube body constructed fabric. It's insane to me that companies get away with advertising that their fabric is one thing when it's not, but i'm convinced that these companies themselves were fooled by their factories or textile suppliers into thinking that the fabric was really loopwheeled.

Kobayashi-san (president of Flat Head) is the only person in the world that owns loopwheeling machines which are capable doing a certain weight and feel of micro-ribbed fabric, the Japanese brand Loopwheeler actually buys their micro-ribbed fabric from Kobayashi. Flat Head are still the only clothing company i've ever come across which owns up to 65% of the machines which weave all their fabrics where as all other clothing lines don't actually own any machines, they lease or outsource production to factories.

Wow, does it mean FH is the only true manufacturer of loopwheeled Tshirts/sweats in the world? Kiya, I know you tried, but please ask Kobayashi-san again to make their shirts bigger (i.e. 46 or larger) for some of us "bigger" North American folks. Their shirts/fabrics are wicked, but their sizing not so much!

Not really, others have the machines but there's only about 175 to 200 of them in the entire world.
Kobayashi just happens to own the only mini-rib one.

FH shirts go up to 46 (and some to 48) starting in three weeks.

Of course, we order the largest size in everything we order from them.

How much do the loop wheeled t-shirts stretch or shrink? I just ordered one of the FH flatlock tees in size medium and I have a 40in chest. Whoever was on the phone said a medium would fit, but now that I'm looking on SE website, the chest measures 37in

The Medium should fit, the t-shirt should be skintight, it's a micro-ribbed undershirt and it stretches.
They don't really shrink much.

Iron Heart Overdyed 12oz Denim Shirts & Restocks We had Iron Heart do a special run of their 12oz selvedge denim shirt in an overdyed version which starts black but fades over time to an indigo color. A great shirt to wear over time and see the aging patterns taking place in the high friction areas. With the overdye process Iron Heart does you can see the character within the indigo denim peaking through even when the shirt is new. Along with this new shirt we've gotten a large restock of all Iron Heart jeans, jackets, belts, and also the selvedge chambray workshirts. All these are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. The overdyded 12oz denim shirt is a limited item made in small numbers only for Self Edge. https://www.selfedge.com/shop/index....index&cPath=71

No need for you to wash them, they've already been rinsed after the overdye process.

Kiya,

I think i read the dry bone collab release had been pushed back a bit? How long is the inseam on those? I am looking to get a new pair of jeans, wondering if I should wait for the dry bones.
