If you got a call it probably means we either didn't realize they had to be shipped or we couldn't read your address. If we had the address right we wouldn't have called you, they would have been shipped same day. Email us asap with what type of jean it was and your full name and we'll sort you out asap.

New Jeans & Shirts from Iron Heart & Strike Gold!

We have three very special jeans for you this week...

From Iron Heart we've got theX634sX Flannel Lined Jeans and the DC4001 model and from Strike Gold the SG1103EX heavyweight jean. Also in is Iron Heart's 2010 version of their Heavyweight Winter Flannel and a restock of the Melton Wool Overshirt.

The X634sX jean is a flannel lined water resistant jean. We've taken Iron Heart's flagship product, the 634s straight leg selvedge jean, and given it the cold weather treatment.
We took their 21oz indigo selvedge denim and lined the entire jean with a heavy weight triple brushed black/gray flannel, but we didn't stop there. The jean is then completely coated in paraffin for repelling water. The jean has to be rinsed twice at the factory after the coating process so the entire thing is extremely comfortable and there is no break-in period whatsoever.
The warmest and driest pair of jeans you'll ever own.

We initially made these with cyclists and motorcyclists in mind, but once news of these leaked we had an overwhelming response from customers wanting to use them during snow sports. Whether you're just outside in colder weather or actually tearing through roads on your motorcycle during the winter months, these will be the most versatile pair of jeans you'll ever own.

The new DC4001 jean is a straight leg jean (a slightly slimmed down top block 634s) that is a collaboration Iron Heart has done with one of our very close friends that owns a great store in Berlin by the name of DC4. Both IH and DC4 have done a great job on this jean and we're honored to be carrying it at all Self Edge stores.

Strike Gold comes through with a new 24oz unsanforized jean with a straight leg fit with a great cut for all body types with a medium rise and a classic fit. This jean is made of a heavy weight denim with a gold spark selvedge id that comes completely loomstate so it's sure to age really well with a high-contrast fade. The jean has a burly feel to it at first due to the rigid denim that comes in it's loomstate form, after a warm water soak the denim opens up a bit and begins to soften with wear.

All three of these jeans and the Iron Heart shirts are available now and are made in limited numbers not to be restocked. Check our online store for specification lists, hi-res photos, and measurements.

Kiya,

What boots is your model wearing in the above pics?

Also, quick question about hemming the 634S. Since they shrink so little in length after washing, I plan to hem right away, before any washing, after the creases set. Where on my ankle / heel should I measure to when determining the best inseam length? I plan to wear these, usually uncuffed, with either sneakers or boots. I wouldn't mind leaving just enough for the option to occasionally cuff.

He's wearing Fiorentini & Baker boots.

For the hemming, measure other jeans you have and have the IH jeans hemmed to the same length.

Hey, Kiya! I don't know if this is the right place/way to contact you, but... Anyway, back in early October '10, I bought a pair of these from the Self Edge store in San Francisco: http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=338 What really allured me was the fit as shown on the page. Also, I thought it was about time I started in on this whole raw denim thing. Unfortunately, the fit just doesn't work for me, as you can see here: (Post soak; 45 min. in hot water in the bathtub) They're a 29W. I'm 5'8~9", ~125 lbs., and I usually wear a 29 in other brands of jeans. It may not look like it in the pics, but the waist and crotch are already very snug, while the legs are just too wide. So, I was just wondering: What do you suggest I do with them? Ever since the soak, they've just been in the closet since I don't like the way they fit. Maybe it's because I'm too skinny or something, or maybe I should've gone with a 28W? Anyway, I've been putting off how I wanted to deal with them, but I saw this topic here and finally decided to do something. (I added you on AIM, too. I'm "RahakoSama," or "Eugene Kohara," depending on the settings. If this wasn't the place/way to contact you, I apologize. I just want to get some advice is all. I've already asked in the big denim thread at the top of the forum, and the decision was almost unanimous - I should sell them. But, in a last attempt, I just want to get your opinion.)

You may have to deal with a bit of pain stretching out the top block, but the legs overall will be slimmer. As is, I don't feel like the fit is terrible either.

Hmmm... Well, to be honest, I don't think the fit is too bad either, but I'm still young (only 20)! I've noticed that a lot of people on SF tend for more conservative fits, but I really want to rock that really slim look. Well, anyway, it has been two months or so since I last wore them. Maybe my memory about the waist is fuzzy, but I definitely remember the crotch riding up. It was uncomfortable. Were I to do the wash, would everything shrink considerably/drastically? Is it possible to stretch the crotch back out? EDIT: Is there some way to just shrink the legs? Or, would that ruin the overall shape of the jeans or something?

Those look to be an entire two sizes too big for you. I'd sell them and get them smaller, i'm not sure how the waist is snug on you when it looks like it's really loose. You can shrink them again by hot soaking them in water for 30 minutes then putting them inside out in the dryer till they're completely dry, this will not change the color at all, it'll only shrink them down.

can anyone recommend a good place to cop an IH wool melton shirt on the cheaps?
