Sugar Cane Long Staple Cotton Winter Flannels and Buzz Rickson Jacket Restocks

We've just received two new flannel shirts from Sugar Cane using a new long staple cotton variety which results in a flannel with a very cool and soft feel to it. The weave is loose and the pattern has an organic look to it. These new flannels are available now in yellow or red.

Along with these new flannels we've received a small restock of Buzz Rickson Pea Coats and William Gibson x Buzz Rickson black MA-1 jackets. These two items are produced in limited numbers only once a year and are still two of the warmest jackets we carry.

We've also received a full restock of all Sugar Cane jeans and Buzz Rickson watch caps in black, navy, and olive.

Shop Sugar Cane!

Shop Buzz Rickson!

just got my WG MA-1 (the last 38 you had before the restock) - this thing is super freaking sweet, thank you guys. If anyone else is wondering whether it's worth the money...well on any reasonable grounds no, but for anyone reading this thread, probably yes =)

 

edit: btw, from reading on other sites, it seems like the WG MA-1 has been made in various cuts: I *think* the first few batches matched the original Air Force cut, and then for more recent batches they went to a modified cut they call 'slender', which is a bit more tailored / fitted, and they have Regular and Long variants of the 'slender' cut now.

 

The Self Edge page doesn't explain any of this, but does give measurements. The tag on the one I got just reads '38 LONG', which I think means it's the long version of the 'slender' cut, since there's no 'long' available in the original Air Force version. It'd probably be worth a mention. That cut happens to fit me great, so I'm happy.

I'm a huge fan of the Stevenson loopwheeled pocket T-shirt.  Any chance they'll become available in colors other than white?

The version of the MA-1 that we carry is the "Slender Long" version, it's about 1.5" longer in length and slim cut.

Nope sorry, they're only doing them in white.

Introducing Globe Specs Eyewear from Japan



We've always been big fans of eyewear in both sunglass and prescription lens versions. We think too many people overlook their eyewear. For something that sits on your face and is normally the first thing somebody sees on you more attention needs to be paid.

Unfortunately with one large corporation controlling nearly the entire eyewear market worldwide both quality and design have faltered on a global scale. It used to be that the best frames came from Italy and France. Times have changed, now the best high-end designers are producing their frames in small shops across Japan. We're huge fans of many of those designers; from Dita to Thom Browne, the best eyewear in terms of quality is now coming from Japan.

We wanted to bring in an eyewear collection that had not been sold in the states, something with vintage stylings, and a line which is fully designed and produced in Japan. We've found that line and are happy to announce that with these five styles Globe Specs is being sold outside of Asia for the first time. No detail is spared, from the shape to the finish to the cases, this is beautiful eyewear. All models can be used as sunglasses or prescription lenses can be put in.

Tetsuya Okada is a Japanese eyewear icon with over 30 years of experience in the high-end optical industry. Starting in the early 1980's he was the reason a major Japanese optical retailer grew outside of Asia, but working for another company was not his destiny. After leaving this larger company Mr. Okada set out to create the ultimate optical boutique and collection in Tokyo. He has now started his own retail stores and collections which are regarded as being one of the most highly coveted eyewear lines in Japan.

Using Japanese artisans trained in hand-made frame production all Globe Specs frames are made of the highest quality acetate, titanium, and stainless steel available. We are proud to offer Mr. Okada's creations outside of Asia for the first time.

All five models are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store, check the product pages for full spec lists, multiple photograph angles, and more.

Our friend Jake Davis shot a great video of Tetsuya Okada, check it:

selfedge: thanks, that's what I figured. But I was suggesting you could add it to the website, so other people would know. Right now it doesn't say - in fact it says near the end "Other than the color, this MA-1 is identical to the first-pattern MA-1 issued to the USAF", which would imply that you had the *non*-tailored version. Like I said, it worked out fine for me, but was just suggesting you could add a note for future customers.

Any chance of a restock on the RJB Harris Tweed Lambskin Gloves, or was that a one-time deal?  Seems there are no small ones left.  I tried them on at SENY, and they're pretty awesome.

Those are some sweet spectacles.  Putting them on the wishlist now.

Hey Kiya
Those Globe specs look real nice...maybe a stupid question but are those lenses in them at the moment sunglass lenses?

With the exception of the Montauk model all the current lenses are sunglass lenses (which can be easily swapped out for a prescription clear or tinted lens).
