Stevenson Spring & Summer Collection of Chinos, Gima Hoodies, and Jackets

We're happy to announce that the most anticipated collection of the year has just arrived. This is the first half of the delivery with the second half coming in about four weeks. There will be no restocks from these collections as everything Stevenson produces is cut to order. This delivery consists of chinos in two colors, gima yarn hoodies in two colors, and a tencel cloth MA-1 jacket.

It only took us seven years to start carrying chinos, but it was worth the wait. These Stevenson chinos are spot on in every area. Taking inspirations from both military and dress chinos with vintage elements such as rear slit pockets and a coin pocket that is aligned directly below the waistband. These are rinsed and come in a slim tapered fit and come in khaki or navy.
This is real chino cloth, as most chinos today are merely made of a flat cotton fabric, these have a bit of chatter within the fabric and feel and look like real vintage chino cloth.

Next up we have Stevenson's take on the classic MA-1 jacket but made in a combination of high density cotton twill and tencel cloth. These are super tightly woven fabrics that stay cool and have great wind resistance. The jacket comes complete with the classic MA-1 arm pocket, two snap buttoned hand pockets, a dual-clip zipper, and a slim fit.

Gima yarn fabric is one if the wildest Japanese textiles we've come across. Gima yarn is cotton which has had all of the moisture pulled out of it during the spinning process. This results in a yarn which stays very dry even in humid weathers, wicks moisture away from the body, and does not retain heat. This is a great example of early tech fabric. You can say that this is the only hoodie that actually keeps you cool. The yarn is then dyed in a mixture of indigo and/or sulfur to create an indigo or black color which then is mixed with sand colored gima yarns to create the specks of light you see through the indigo/black. This is a standout garment, the combination of color and type of yarn used to create such a simple piece is very impressive.

All these Stevenson items are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for high-res photos, spec lists, and measurements.

Roy Buck-Tite Slim Tapered Jeans

After years of producing jeans Roy has now made his first slim tapered cut.

Roy has taken it upon himself to rework the details in his standard 5-pocket jean model. Nearly every aspect of the jean has been tweaked similar to the SF01 jean which was released earlier this year.
The belt loops are now thinner and made on a 1920's Union Special belt loop making machine, the leather patch design is different and on a smaller patch, and even the front pocket openings are shaped differently. We personally love the bump on the rear pocket welts which resemble the exaggerated bump on the belt loops from many Japanese brands.
Roy is calling this the "Buck-Tite", it is a true slim tapered jean.

This long overdue set of jeans is made up of a custom fabric from Cone Mills made exactly to Roy's specs. This is the first time in over three decades that Cone has produced a loomstate unsanforized fabric for anybody.

The denim is a loomstate unsanforized indigo denim that clocks in at 14.5oz per square yard in it's raw state. The denim is made of American cotton and is 100% pure indigo dyed in the darkest shade Cone produces.
Technically, the construction of the denim.. the warp has multiple sized (engineered) slub yarns and the weft has large rough spun (non-engineered) yarn. It weighs 14.5 in loomstate and approximately 16.25oz after a hot water soak.
The fabric hand is smooth and tight. Roy had Cone pack as many picks per inch (46 in 6.4 gauge yarn) as could be done without the loom blowing out and therefore achieved the tight weave he was after. There is a sound to the denim, after its been worn a few weeks - when you rustle it, that's somewhere between suede and oil cloth. This is tough fabric.
The look is streaky and it appears grey-ish at first. After rinsing and a few weeks of wear, it starts to change character as the white hairs formed by the fill yarns wear off leaving the streakiness to mellow and the shade to become a more rich, classic indigo.

Jeans from Roy don't come often and we can't keep them in stock as long as we'd like, so if you've been waiting for a pair, now is the time.

Check the product pages in our online store for more photos, measurements, and far far more specifications than you can possibly need for a pair of jeans.

The Roy Buck-Tite Jean will be available at all Self Edge stores at noon (local time) on Saturday May 11 and in our online store at 11am (PDT) the same day.

There are no restocks on Sun Surf stuff, its all cut to order.
Buy it quick if you think you want it, their production numbers are quite low. New Sun Surf and Star of Hollywood comes out June 10th.

After 5 months of run around, I have had it with the atrocious service I have recieved from selfedge. I sent this email to them to voice my complaints, I figured you all should see it too.

I don’t even know where to begin with trying to explain how pissed off I am at your horrible customer service. Not only did I receive the jeans 5 months after I ordered them, after repeatedly being promised “oh we’ll have those in a week or two” but you guys completely dropped the ball and forgot to hem them after I sent you extra money to do so. Quite frankly, if I’m paying over $300 for jeans I think hemming should be included, but I didn’t complain and sent you the extra $25 dollars yet somehow you still forgot to do it. Now I’m guessing you’ll have me pay even more money to send them back for the third time. Not going to happen, this is bullshit. I can’t believe how highly you are regarded for you customer service because I have not even come close to having a good experience with you guys. I will not be recommending you to anyone and will never do business with you again unless you find some way to remedy this situation in a way that does not cost me another dime. I’m already over $400 into this purchase...what the fuck guys?

Whoa... first bad review I read about Self Edge! There must be some misunderstanding? Kiya, Gordon and Jay provide the best customer service in the dry denim market...

I honestly have zero idea what this is about or where you bought the jeans from, not to mention i never received this email and i answer every email sent to us within 10 minutes during the day and immediately upon waking up. I want to help, but this is the first i'm hearing about this and can't fathom how with our system you'd be able to pay for jeans and have us NOT send them to you for 5 months. This is exactly the reason why we don't do pre-sales.

We ship out all online orders within 5 minutes during the day seven days a week. If by the freak chance you order something that we don't have because our stock was off you'd receive a refund within 30 minutes.

Based off my experiences with Self Edge I honestly find this near impossible. Not saying it couldn't happen but it just seems highly unlikely

This email was sent to Thomas Hall of the New York store because he is who I have been communicating with since you didn't have them at the SF store. The very first emails were with you Kiya, but early on he took over communication because they were sending the jeans from New York. This was also not an online order, it was a phone order. I knew the jeans were out of stock, but I was continually promised that they would be in stock in a couple of weeks starting back in December. I was told several times that they would be "in stock in a couple weeks" and that "I'll let you know as soon as they came in." I was never notified or updated on the status of the jeans, and had to send several follow up emails to which the response was more of the same "should have them in a couple weeks" If you would like, I can post the entire chain of emails.

My first order with SE was on the Stevenson chinos and it went as smooth as butter.

Order shipped out 3 minutes after it was placed.

And I'll be picking up some SGs in the near future from them.

Keep on keeping on guys.

Anytime you order something that's not in stock, you're at the mercy of whomever's producing the jeans.  There's wide variability in how often a new run of jeans is made, so it's nearly impossible for a stockist to know when they'll get new supply of an item.  This is only magnified in instances in which you're dealing with artisanal goods.  For example, Roy jeans are made by one guy from scratch.  Self Edge getting more Roy jeans is contingent on when Roy makes more jeans, and there's not necessarily a set schedule for new runs.  So, in your case, SE may have been told they'd be getting a restock within a few weeks, and then simply didn't get the items in the expected timeframe discussed with their supplier.  As Kiya said, this is the issue with doing presale.  You don't truly know when the supplier will send forth the product, which can sometimes result in unreasonable waiting times.  Just ask people who have ordered Aldens from Epaulet.  Some people have been waiting more than a year.

 

When you're dealing with that type of a situation, best bet is to find out when they'll restock a certain item, and then regularly check the website and this thread for updates on restocks.  If the jean you want is in stock when ordered, it generally takes somewhere in the range of 5-10 days for it to get hemmed, shipped and to arrive at destination.  I ordered a pair of Roy Buck Tite with hemming service on 05/11, and the jeans arrived yesterday (05/18).
