Roy "Big Bro" Natural Indigo-Dyed Denim Shirt

For the start of the new year we have Roy's third shirt release using the most exotic fabric thus far. This shirt is made of a natural indigo-dyed denim produced by Japan's famed Collect Mills which specializes in older dying techniques and using natural plant-based indigo dyes. The fabric's weight clocks in at 8oz per square yard, meaning it can also be used as an overshirt.

This new shirt has a more rugged feel and look to it compared to Roy's past shirts, much of that is attributed to the triple-stitched body, heavier fabric, and the simple solid aluminum cat's eye buttons.

One of the details we personally love is the busted selvedge seam up the back of the shirt, over time you'll have jean-like train tracks running up your back. Also, Roy has this wild machine that's able to do a stitch that melts our minds, it's meant to be an invisible hemming machine but to us it looks like a crazy fabric perforator. He's used this machine to hem the front placket of the shirt which also hides the button backs from your body when the shirt is worn. The gussetted side seams have two layers of fabric accenting the gusset, the denim for durability then the selvedge ID of the deadstock Cone selvedge chambray peaking out behind it for the natural selvedge accent.

This is a versatile shirt with an impressive shade of blue due to the natural indigo dye that's going to age well with regular wear and washings. We can't wait to see what these shirts look like after six or twelve months of wear.

This Roy shirt will go on sale at all Self Edge stores at noon (local time) on Saturday, February 1st. The shirt will also go on sale at 10am (PST) the same day in our online store. This shirt will not be remade or restocked, this is an edition of 80 shirts.

Shirt is being modeled by Roy Slaper in an unwashed Medium size. Check the online store for a full spec list on the shirt, measurements, hi-res photos, and more.

Kiya, I want to bring to your attention this review on Yelp which is stating basically that the murals in the alleyway you use for your photos are not intended to be used for commercial purposes:

 

http://www.yelp.com/biz/self-edge-san-francisco#hrid:3tefcEJVIrzcQsxV-rXGsQ

 

I don't know if what the reviewer is stating holds much water or not since the murals are usually blurred and hardly identifiable in your photos. You may want to respond to that review however and if you agree with it, maybe shoot the photos elsewhere. 

post #5753 of 6018

I've been shopping SE's website for a few years now and while I knew you're shots were always in an alley, I had no idea there was any art behind your model. I always thought it was a couple painted walls, maybe some concert posters. Had he contacted you before he threw out negative PR? Douche move. Get a keg, throw an artist's benefit party and make him look like an ass.

These guys are nuts, they blanket Yelp and Facebook profiles of anybody that does anything in that alley without actually contacting the business. Funny thing is that we blur out the background of all of our photos so you can't tell where they were taken, the only reason they knew it was us is because one of them went up to our photographer (after 8 years of shooting there) and asked who he worked for.

Yeah, personally I think the photos with the murals are cool. It's not like you are doing anything illegal since it's a public walkway. Nor are you selling the images. If you were, that might be a different story.

LOL he one-starred a tour company for giving tours that include the alley. What a twat.

I had no idea self edge was using an alley for their ulterior motives. Will not purchase from again.

Self Edge x Iron Heart 20oz Left Hand Twill Denim Jeans & Jackets

For collaboration number twenty-two we've come together with Iron Heart to have a new 20oz unsanforized loomstate left hand twill denim produced with gray weft (fill) yarns. Due to the left hand twill of the denim the jean has a unique hand feel and due to the gray weft yarns the fabric has a very interesting medium indigo shade. We've never really had a jean at our stores made of a denim that looks and feels like this one. Due to the combination of the weight of the fabric and the fact that the denim comes in its loomstate form the fabric will age at a high definition at high wear points and areas of creasing. Iron Heart have cut and sewn this denim without doing any processing of any kind to the fabric. Unsanforized, un-singed, uncalendered, and unmercerised; this is a true loomstate denim.

Iron Heart have taken this beautiful new fabric and produced two jean fits and one jacket model.
The SEXIH22-301s is a slim tapered cut with a medium rise and is stitched together with cotton poly-core goldenrod thread. This is the same 301s which is one of our best selling slim jeans at Self Edge.
The SEXIH22-633s is a straight leg jean above the knee and is tapered below the knee for a smaller leg opening. With the new 633s fit we took the 634s and lengthened the inseam and made the leg opening a tad smaller.
The SEXIH22TYPEIII jacket is a traditional Type III denim jacket which we've added hand-pockets to and lengthened the body by 2" so that it can worn with an untucked shirt underneath. It's also perfect for those who are too tall for the traditional denim jacket body length.

All three of these items shrink a bit when washed due to the unsanforized nature of the denim used. We know it's a little extra to worry about but in the end you'll be thankful due to how they'll fit and age over time due to the denim not being treated with the sanforization process. Shrinkage info can be found on the product pages in our online store.

These are made in limited numbers and will not be reproduced.
Both jean models and the denim jacket will go on sale at all Self Edge stores on Saturday, February 15th at noon (local time) and at 9am (PST) in our online store the same day.

I'll only do collab jackets with hand pockets and the Type II style looks real bad when you put front hand pockets on it.
