    ^^ denim is a smoother weave, not a slubby one.

    boots are good, still breaking them in but they really dont need a whole lot of it. since it has a crepe sole i admit i'm sorta baby'ing em as I'm prone to uneven heel wear but the olive color is easy to wear with other earth tones


    That wingtip detailing is awesome. Post some pictures on WAWN of them. And yeah, baby those suckers - they look like long termers and a nice occasional alternative to your oxbloods. Work well with slim cut jeans?

    Are those proprietary Dry Bones, or are they another line the shop was carrying? I was wondering if that's something Kiya would ever consider for Self Edge...

    Anyway, can you compare the Dry Bones at all to the Skull fit? You mentioned the tight top block, but I've also read the DB aren't as 'skinny' as the 5010s (which aren't skinny at all on me).

    ^^ the boots work better with a more relaxed cut. they are big shoes, my size 8US fit nice and snug but the boot itself is really big. If someone gave me measurements of the length and width I'd say no way those would fit, but they do. I actually might need to get a pair of jeans specifically for those boots, the ones I normally wear are a bit too slim I think and don't pair quite right. They're Dry Bones brand, not some line that the store carries....everything in the DB store is all their own brand.

    I've never worn Skulls so cant compare, but the size 29 measured about 19.5" across hip iirc, and the leg opening is 7.5"

    I've had conversation with Kiya about that and why he doesnt, basically the stuff he carries is the more "normal" stuff that sells to a wider range of buyer, whereas Dry Bones makes a ton of stuff that is more "rockabilly" styled and caters to an even smaller niche buyer.

    Thanks for the insights. I'd love to see more rockabilly/greaser stuff available here, and not just wallet lanyards. Maybe a trip to Japan is in order.

    I hear you. My docs are pretty much the only footwear I can wear with most of my slim (7.5" l.o. or less) jeans. Good excuse to buy. Looking for some Somets? ;-)

    The Dry Bones Boot Collection - Brogue Gillies & Desert Boots

    From the Setagaya ward of Tokyo, Dry Bones is one of the longest running denim and vintage style garment companies from Japan. With over twenty years of experience these guys have continually been on the pulse of what products to produce and doing it far before it hitting the mainstream.

    They're three seasons in with their footwear collection and we think it's due time it comes to Western world. Their boots are a combination of great versatile colors, wonderful small batch dyed leathers, and a comfort level very rarely seen on a non-athletic shoe.

    We're starting off the collection with two models, each available in two different colors. These are now all available in our online store and Self Edge New York. Check the online store's product pages for hi-res photos, specs, and more information:

    Can't believe I never saw the chambray shirt before. It's so distinctive, but not over the top. Too bad it's so expensive.

    Those 2-tone desert boots are the tits as well.

    Self Edge x Dry Bones x Superfuture x Styleforum = SEXDBXSXS12

    One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean.

    The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

    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.

    Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posted on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

    This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

    The SEXDBXSXS12 jean will be released at Self Edge San Francisco, Self Edge New York, and Self Edge Los Angeles at Noon (Local Time) on Saturday, December 4th.
    The jeans will also be available online at 10am (PST) the same day in the online store.


    Check our online store for more information on this jean, a complete specification list, measurements, and hi-res photos:

    Ha I wondered why there was a collab ad on sufu earlier but it linked to nothing. I guess this is what the ad was for. Love everything except the SF stitching.

    Looks a bit bright in the photos, it's more subtle in person. Also once the jean is soaked it'd be even less noticeable.

    Oh it's not the stiching itself, it's just putting on the inside of the pocket as opposed to the outside. PBJ does the same but I love my pair regardless.

    Rock Out This Winter With Dry Bones

    Fresh from the cold winter days of Tokyo comes four new pieces from Dry Bones along with a restock of their Red-D jeans and Dual-Prong Belts.

    First up we have a beautiful melton wool Award Jacket with a quilted interior. Custom oversized cat-eye buttons and a great thick ribbing makes this a stellar winter jacket that's comfortable and warm.

    Next up we've received two button down shirts. One is a micro-cord shirt with a woven jacquard fabric as the front yoke. Dry Bones has been doing this exact repro for almost twenty years, every year a different color. It just so happens that very recently a high-end Japanese brand has become very popular producing these exact shirts, I guess when you make something for long enough it'll be hip at least once during your lifetime. The next shirt is a 100% cotton flannel with red Bakelite-like buttons, the pattern on this shirt pops.

    Last up is a jacquard loom woven sweater made of an acrylic/wool/nylon blend which is crazy soft on the inside and outside. The Fair Isle pattern looks great with the colors they've used on this sweater.

    All these new items along with a full restock of the Dry Bones Red-D jeans and the dual-prong belt is available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store. Check the online store for more info, photos, measurements, and specs.

    Dry Bones Jacquard T-Shirts, Eyewear, & Red-D Slim Jeans

    Fresh from the rockabilly overlords of Tokyo, Dry Bones has released a couple of new jacquard woven t-shirts, two new pairs of glasses, and done a new run of their popular Red-D Slim jeans.

    The fabric on these tees has been woven on a vintage punch-card jacquard loom which is run out of a shirting studio in the north of Japan. It takes hours setting up one machine to run a bolt of fabric but worth it once the end product is turned into such a fine product.

    Along with the tees we've received two new pairs of glasses from Dry Bones along with a restock on a couple of their past styles. All these new items along with a restock of the Red-D Slim jeans and their dual-prong belt are available now at all Self Edge stores and in our online store.

    Self Edge x Dry Bones Natural Indigo Hank-Dyed Jeans = SEXDB19

    After seven years and nearly twenty collaborations we've finally put ourselves up to the task of doing a jean made of a fabric so difficult and so expensive to produce that we could truly say it was a labor of love and passion.

    Self Edge and Dry Bones have come together to produce a jean made of 100% natural indigo dyed yarns which were hank-dyed to produce a very deep indigo shade which cannot be replicated using modern dying methods and synthetic dyes. There are a small handful of natural indigo dying masters left in Japan and to say that they work slowly is an understatement. Massive care is taken when preparing the natural indigo dye bath and then the dying the skeins of yarn. Once the yarn is dyed it is then woven into denim on a wooden (but machine powered) loom yielding an extremely uneven texture which brings out the great deep indigo shade hidden within the fabric.

    The fabric is then cut and sewn into a straight leg jean with a little taper down past the knee and finished with hidden rivets, indigo dyed cotton twill pocket bags, olive military-grade canvas rear pocket linings, and a cowhide patch.

    Due to difficulty of producing this fabric and the costs associated with the production these jeans are limited to only 95 pairs.
    Josh Harris is off this week running the Pig and Punch event in New Orleans, in place we have Eugene Terrible from SESF modeling the jeans.

    The SEXDB19 jean will be available at all Self Edge stores on Saturday, July 27 at noon (local time) and at 10am (PDT) the same day in our online store.
