    Self Edge x Dry Bones x Superfuture = SEXDBXS09 ** The Superfuture Jean

    Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz and Simon Kristoph. Hailing from Australia, their website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
    Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

    Supertalk, boasting an extremely active 40,000 users, is home to a sub-forum named Superdenim which is dedicated to all things denim, workwear, leather boots, and Americana reproductions. Over the years Superdenim has seen it's fair share of denim contests, where the contestants are to wear the same jean every day for a certain duration of time, most commonly the span of the contest lasts from 12 to 24 months. With the SEXDBXS09 jean we've allowed the users of Superfuture and Superdenim to give their input on styling, cut, and accents for a very special jean to be released on February 28th; even the leather patch was designed by a renown artist from Texas named JimmyC from Superfuture.

    The SEXDBXS09 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. Months were spent getting the denim exactly where we wanted it and the denim was woven for this project; as the denim has never before been used on another garment nobody knows exactly how it will age.
    Self Edge has chosen a denim with a little more weight than the classic styles, at 16oz it's got heft to it, and with massive amounts of character showing from the warp and weft it's sure to age well.
    The fit is that of a straight leg jean, slightly slimmed down, with a button fly and a long inseam which can be hemmed to the wearer's length without altering the silhouette.

    We're proud the way the denim has turned out, it's something we've never had in the store before. The denim has been calendered and singed, yet hasn't lost any character which is instantly recognizable even at a quick glance. Rounded out with hidden rivets, cowhide leather tag, Superfuture dual-tone "Rep Bar" stitch, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, and a cotton poly-core stitch; this jean is exactly what we want to be seen in.

    The SEXDBXS09 will be released in our webstore under the Dry Bones brand at 8:30am (PST) on Saturday February 28th.
    It will be released in our brick and mortar store at Noon the same day. You can also purchase the jean online in our webstore and state in the comments section to hold the jean for a local pick-up at our store in San Francisco.

    They look great, esp the pocket lining and the sweet design on the leather patch.

    Very nice, Kiya. On a tangential note: from Alexa.com: [​IMG] There are 453 users on Supertalk right now. There are 964 users on Styleforum.

    I was waiting for someone to point that out. I noticed this on Cool Hunting a couple of days ago and the "SuFu being the only forum worth a damn" made me laugh.

    I wasn't planning on getting another pair for a while, but I might have to get these.

    Uhm, i'm hoping that you guys realize that i didn't write that.
    Right?
    Just in case nobody noticed, Cool Hunting contacted me, interviewed me, and that's it.
    The interview below is what i said, and what i stand by, anything said by Cool Hunting or JimmyC is nothing i had anything to do with.

    In all seriousness, I haven't liked some of the SE denim in the past, but these look pretty sick. I'm actually thinking about copping. Depends.

    It used to be that Streetwear was more or less a denim forum. What happened?

    Was the preppy sensibility always part of SW&D or is that somewhat recent?

    Sometimes the divide between SW&D and MC is hard to divine. We get a few threads about $300 denim, they get a few about suits...
