New IH x SE is really nice! Might have to grab those jeans even though I stopped wearing blue jeans.

Agreed about Type IIs looking bad with pockets. Will the type IIIs always have 2" extra in length?

The normal type III is short, only this collab we did (and our past one) is 2" longer. We have no plans to do another special Type III denim jacket in the future.

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 are available now at all four Self Edge stores and in our online shop. Check the product pages in our online store for measurements, high-res photographs, and spec lists.

Found this thread recently and realized the posts on the first page date back to '06!

I'm trying to find the collab jeans which are modeled after the Dior 19cm, which were mentioned in the first few pages of this thread. Anyone know what stacks up in Self Edge's stock which would match the collab jeans? Thanks.

I'd say these jeans would be the closest out of what we stock now:
Flat Head SE05BSP
Iron Heart 301s
Strike Gold 2109
Strike Gold 3109

This is a really fantastic interview and a great read for anyone who's even vaguely into raw denim. Or clothing in general, to some extent, which I would think covers just about everyone on the forum.

Iron Heart Brown Hairline Hickory Shirts, Cowhide Zippered Wallets, & Jean Restocks

The first new Iron Heart shirt of 2014 has rolled into our stores and it's a good one. The fabric is a hairline hickory done in a new brown-ish color. The color is quite muted due to how close and dense the hairline pattern is on the fabric. The fabric is a medium weight cotton textile and the shirt comes with white snaps and has been rinsed so shrinkage is minimal.

Next up we've received two new Iron Heart wallets in a new shape, both with zippered enclosures and inner card and coin pockets. These are available in both tan and navy leathers which have been paraffin coated for water protection.

Along with these new items we've also received a full restock of Iron Heart's jeans. All these items are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online shop. Check the product pages for full specs, high-res photographs, and measurements.

Thanks for your reply, Kiya.

Any chance these will be in stock at your PDX store? Will be staying for a few days next week and looking to get a pair.

Mister Freedom Indian Madras Summer Shirts & Lot 64 Californian Jeans

We've received the first shipment of Mister Freedom's 2014 collection in the form of an Indian Madras shirt and a new version of their popular "Californian" series of jeans.

The madras shirt is a perfect summer weight fabric that breathes well with all the details you'd expect from Mister Freedom including custom cast buttons, chainstitch side seam run-off, shoulder pleat accents, and a great fit.

The new version of the Californian jean brings a slightly modified fit and the details throughout the jean have been changed including a cool new "patch". These have turned into a staple for us at the shops, they're great fitting jeans with Mister Freedom's iconic accents.

The madras shirts and denim jeans are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for full measurements, spec lists, and high-res photographs.

Yellow Rat's 2014 Summer Collection

From the Japanese surf legend's new collection we have a set of new short sleeve shirts and t-shirts just in time for the warmer months.

First up is a new chambray pull-over with vented side seams, a few buttons down the chest, and a casual unstructured collar. This is a new version of a shirt we had from Yellow Rat a couple of years ago and we're glad to see it redone for this season.

Next up we have a Japanese madras short sleeve shirt with a super casual summer style, get into it.

Last year we received these border striped tees from Yellow Rat and didn't realize they were going to sell as fast as they did. We urged them to redo them this for this season and they remade the tees in navy and blue. These are custom t-shirt bodies made for Yellow Rat which are then screened with a thin water based ink.

All four of these items are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the product pages for more info, measurements, and high-res photographs.

Stevenson Indigo-Dyed Chinos and Indigo-Dyed Sashiko Scarves

We've got an exciting new release from Stevenson in the form of an indigo-dyed cotton twill slim fitting chino. These were made exclusively for Self Edge and are not available even in Japan. These are lightweight and perfect for warmer climates. The fabric has been rinsed twice and already some of the characteristics of the indigo can be seen at the edges of the fabric.

Along with the indigo-dyed chinos we've received indigo-dyed sashiko scarves with hand sewn accents. The fabrics on these scarves were designed and produced by Stevenson and fully finished by hand to produce one of the most unique scarves you've ever seen.

These chinos, scarves, and a full restock of the Hilts chinos are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online shop.
