One question. Is it standard to need to triple roll up these 36" length IH-666-XHS jeans? I see your model has them rolled up only once...but they're kind of bunched up and pushed down towards the ankle. I'm going to have them chainstitch hemmed, but am not sure how many cuffs I should allow for.

When are you going to have more Iron Heart Super Black motorcycle jackets in stock? I'm going to be moving back to the US very soon and my first purchase will be a motorcycle. I wear a 42R jacket w/ my suit...does that mean I am an XL? I rarely am an XL in American sizes. Usually I'm medium or large.

What size should I order for the Iron Heart Super Tan belt if I fluctuate between a 32 and 33 waist?

I would definitely hem them, that denim doesn't look great stacked too heavily. The reason our model is wearing them like that is because they're unhemmed for the photoshoot.

We'll have a restock of those jackets in three weeks, are you moving to SF, NY, LA, or Portland? Because if so, you can come into one our stores to just try the jacket on for size.

Would you suggest hemming them so I can't roll them up at all, or hemming them so I am able to roll them up one or two times? The people at the place where I bought them (Thailand) are acting like they're designed to be rolled up a little bit...but that could just be Thai style.

I'll be living in Las Vegas and traveling to LA frequently. I may also ride the motorcycle to Portland or San Francisco in the first few months when I'm back. Do you guys stock any other motorcycle jackets I can check out?

Cuffing is completely up to you, you can wear your jeans however you like, no jean is designed to be worn one way or another.

We carry motorcycle jackets made of both denim and/or horsehide at all of our stores.

Ok, I am in no way associated with Selfedge but this is the ideal configuration (long, slender, unmarked) of the already hard to find Buzz RicksonXWilliam Gibson MA-1, it runs TTS and I am extremely satisfied with the one I got in a 36. They have one left so I strongly encourage you to contact SF as this was a limited edition. A truly great jacket, that IMHO, bridges the gap between "heritage" and "fashion" MA-1.

full disclosure: mine wasn't bought directly from Selfedge because some guy in SE asia who had the 36 in unworn version offered it to me for a super good price, I very much doubt this will happen to you and there is only one of these left. I looked all over rakuten or whatever and they never had all the details of this version and/or were sold out.

Globe Specs x Free & Easy and Globe Specs x Beauty & Youth 2013 Eyewear Collection

From the eyewear line that brought us our favorite frames of 2012...
Globe Specs has just delivered a new set of frames for 2013, one of which is a collaboration with Japan's Free & Easy.

We have four new frames, all of which are 100% made in Japan. The steel, acetates, and hinges are all made in Japan with the frames being hand shaped and polished in the end for the perfect feel and fit. The detail on the Free & Easy frame is amazing, especially how the acetate gives way to the steel part way down the temple. The Beauty & Youth frames are made of steel structured acetate with cast silver accents near the hinges, they're classic yet different from other frames on the market. Tetsuya Okada continues to impress us with his ability to design and produce eyewear in Japan.

The three Beauty & Youth frames come with a zippered rip-stop nylon MA-1 jacket inspired case complete with pen slips and a safety orange inner lining. The Free & Easy frames come in a custom hard snap case stamped with the Rugged Museum's logo (Free & Easy's concept space in Tokyo).

All four of these frames are available now at all four Self Edge stores and in our online store, check the product pages for full spec lists and high-res images.

Mister Freedom Blank T-Shirts - Made in California

A couple of months ago we received a small batch of blank white tees from Mister Freedom, they were gone within a week of us receiving them. We've gotten a restock of those white tees along with two new colors which we think are going to be a future staple at Self Edge.

These tees are made of 100% US grown cotton which has been loomed in the US on tubular knitting machines (no side seams). The tees are then cut and sewn in California and have a vintage style fit with sleeves fitting a bit shorter than usual and a boxy fit throughout. These also have a narrow neck-band, like the ones found on tees from the 40's and 50's.

These tees are now available in white, sage green, and navy blue. The white tees come unwashed and shrink down to size, the sage green and navy blue ones have been rinsed during the dying process and do not shrink much at all. Mister Freedom nailed the shade of green and blue on the colored ones, they're beautiful and sure to age well over time.

All three of these tees are available now at all four Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for high-res photos, measurements, and a full spec list.

Its because all production was moved to Japan, so now the jeans are on par (or very close) in quality of construction to all the other brands we sell at Self Edge.

If you want something heavier in weight you should try the 2105 or 3105 by Strike Gold.
