    Roy "Big Brother" Round Two Jeans

    Roy Slaper is back at it with a new jean made of a newly developed denim.

    The new version of the Big Brother jean is a tweaked Big Bro fit with slightly more taper to the leg. Also, this version of the Big Bro has a plain back (no buckle-back).

    The denim on these jeans is an all new 13.5oz loomstate denim which Roy designed from the ground up. Cone did not have or could not produce the selvedge id thread color so Roy had another company manufacture just the single thread that goes through the selvedge line and had the thread shipped to Cone to use on his denim. The warp yarns are made of a conventional American cotton while the weft is made of Supima cotton giving the fill threads an off-white caste. Supima is a longer staple cotton so we're thinking it will be less prone to stretching out and knee bagging.

    The fabric for the pocket bags were also custom designed and produced for this jean. They're an undyed (natural) ring-ring 3x1 twill that is loomstate and will be cut in a way where it shrinks with the jean. The pocket bags are a 10oz 3x1 cotton twill which is 100% ring spun, undyed, and unsanforized.

    We're really in love with the rear pocket shape, the exposed 2-prong tack and washer rivets, and the fabric. We don't believe we've seen a denim with this much character come out of Cone Mills before, the weave pattern is very unique and so is the shade of indigo.

    These jeans will go on sale at Noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores on Saturday, January 10th and at 9am (PST) in our online store on the same day.

    Roy "Roy Tapered" Modified Jeans - RT1002

    Roy Slaper is back with a fresh batch of jeans.

    This new release is a modified version of the "Big Bro" BB1002 jean. This version of the jean comes with traditional (and more common) back pocket shapes and riveting techniques. The fit is slightly different from past iterations of the Big Bro model, check the measurements for exact differences. The fabric on these jeans is a 13.5oz loomstate denim which Roy designed from the ground up. Cone did not have or could not produce the selvedge id thread color so Roy had another company manufacture just the single thread that goes through the selvedge line and had the thread shipped to Cone to use on his denim.

    The warp yarns are made of a conventional American cotton while the weft is made of Supima cotton giving the fill threads an off-white caste. Supima is a longer staple cotton so we're thinking it will be less prone to stretching out and knee bagging. The fabric for the pocket bags were also custom designed and produced for this jean. They're an undyed (natural) ring-ring 3x1 twill that is loomstate and will be cut in a way where it shrinks with the jean.

    These jeans will go on sale on Saturday, March 28th at Noon (local time) at all four Self Edge stores and will also go on sale at 10am (PDT) on the same day in our online store.

    The Roy "Big Bro" Baja Red Chambray Short Sleeve

    Roy is back with his first shirt in over a year. The "Big Bro" Baja shirt is a red selvedge Japanese chambray done up in a simple short sleeved shirt with small details here and there, as you would expect a shirt made by Roy Slaper. The fabric is a medium weight chambray that has a small pattern to the weave which becomes more apparent after the first wash.

    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. Also, the gussetted side seams are done up with a selvedge ID accent.

    This Roy shirt will be released at noon (local time) on Saturday August 1st at all four Self Edge stores. It will also be released at 9am (PDT) on the same day via our online store.

    Roy Cotton Duck "Foreman" Pants

    Roy is back with a pair of selvedge cotton duck Foreman pants . New fit, new details, new everything on this one. The fabric is a 10.5oz sanforized black-line selvedge fiber-dyed cotton duck woven in North Carolina. The pocket bags are amazing, we haven't seen this fabric used before. They're made of a dobby loom woven cotton made by Cone Mills. The branding is on the inside of these pants printed on a Pima cotton tag. The fit is designed in such a way where it can be worn sized up or down depending on how you want the pant to fit without it looking too slim or sloppy.

    This Roy pant will be released at noon (local time) on Saturday September 19th at all four Self Edge stores. It will also be released at 9am (PDT) on the same day via our online store.

    Roy Straight Leg Loomstate Jeans - RS05

    A new year means new jeans from Roy!

    This new release is a reworked version of the RS model from a couple of years ago. The fabric on these jeans is a 13.5oz loomstate denim which Roy designed from the ground up. Cone did not have or could not produce the selvedge id thread color so Roy had another company manufacture just the single thread that goes through the selvedge line and had the thread shipped to Cone to use on his denim.

    The warp yarns are made of a conventional American cotton while the weft is made of Supima cotton giving the fill threads an off-white cast. Supima is a longer staple cotton so we're thinking it will be less prone to stretching out and knee bagging. The fabric for the pocket bags were also custom designed and produced for this jean.

    These jeans will go on sale at noon (local time) at all five Self Edge stores on Saturday, January 2nd. They will also go on sale at 11am PST on the same day in our online store.

    How is the stretchability on this denim? After a soak, does it stretch past raw measurement?
