If you're in the area of one of our stores make sure to drop by, we're receiving new product on an almost daily basis throughout the month of November.
Roy Slaper has finished up a new set of 5-Pocket pants made of an indigo dyed 12oz cotton canvas.
Roy wanted a slim-straight cut super dark pant that wore in with extreme fading properties. He chose this Cone (White Oak) indigo dyed canvas due to how it ages over time, it almost ages like an indigo dyed denim which was produced with massive loom-chatter, yet at the same time this fabric looks quite even when new. One of the most labor intensive garment Roy has produced yet, these indigo dyed canvas pants are a final level of flavorful. From the seashell fly stitch to the psychotically assembled pocket bags these are best viewed completely inside out.
From the outside they're built like a diesel truck and from the inside they're more like a peacock.
Roy suggests soaking these in room temperature water for 10 to 20 minutes and allowing them to air dry before wearing just to get the starch out (for comfort). Not doing this will not hurt the jean necessarily and will yield more contrast in the wear due to the way the fabric will react to wear while still starched.
Considering the time it takes to produce these and the fact that every jean is produced by one man from start to finish restocks or new models do not come often, but when they do, they're worth the wait.
These will be available at all Self Edge stores on Saturday November 5th at Noon (Local Time). They'll also be available in our online store at 10:00 (PDT) the same day. Check the online store for a full spec list, measurements, and photos of Roy wearing the jeans:
Introducing Yellow Rat - Vintage Style American Casual Wear - Made in the USA
We'd like to introduce you to a new brand in our line-up by the name of Yellow Rat. Started in 2007 by world renowned Japanese surfer Kio Inagaki with the intention to reproduce lost styles of American casual wear.
The Yellow Rat line is produced in the USA from fabrics and hardware from both Japan and the USA. This line has made it's rounds in the vintage clothing and rockabilly scene for years and we're happy to finally give it some play in cities which it's never been sold before. The details and fits are very good and the prices are reasonable for garments which reproduce details we've never seen on basics such as fleece hoodies and zip-up track jackets.
We consider Yellow Rat to be a Japanese company as the people behind it are Japanese born, yet the line is operated out of Mar Vista California, on the coast directly west of central Los Angeles.
We're launching Yellow Rat with two crewneck sweaters, a zip hoodie, a striped zippered jacket, and two gingham button-down shirts. Check out the items in our online store for details on each garment.
All these items from Yellow Rat are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for measurements, hi-res photographs, and full spec lists on all the garments.
