    quick question (sorry for x post)

    putting my jeans in the dryer will not affect the indigo/ future fading properties correct? I was planning to do a hot soak and throwing them in the dryer on high since I would like to get the max shrinkage out.

    thanks

    depends how long you dry them, and how hot, it can destroy the fibers to a certain degree...

    Real Japan Blues Jeans - The 106BSP & 105BSP

    Hailing from Nagano, Japan.. Real Japan Blues is known for their psychotic ways of producing even the simplest of garments. They take everything from western shirts to five pocket jeans and create them in an entirely new way using fabrics that impress even the most seasoned garment junkie.

    Two new models from RJB are being released this weekend in limited numbers, at this point RJB is not sure as to whether or not these will be reproduced once this run is gone.

    The 106BSP is a slim fit jean with a straight leg and the 105BSP has a mid-rise and a straight leg. We're quite into the cuts because we feel there is a gap in the Japanese denim market for jeans that aren't exactly reproductions but have a heavy nod to the Rockabilly days of the late 1950's, jeans that make you look like you're Marlon Brando or James Dean but aren't really the cuts they were wearing fifty years ago. A combination of the denim, leg silhouettes, tags, and knife pocket.. We see a badass from the 50's that wreaks havoc on civilians with his motorcycle gang, and we love it.

    The denim on these is a new denim which has impressed us here to say the least. It's similar to Flat Head's 3XXX denim in terms of how hairy it becomes after the first soak but has a deeper indigo color straight off. The dye method yields an extremely high contrast fade which we'd only seen this intense before on Flat Head's denim, yet it's quite different considering it's pure indigo and the cotton is from Zimbabwe.

    Spec list for both the 106BSP and 105BSP:
    13.75oz Rope Dyed Japanese Selvedge Unsanforized Denim
    Zimbabwe Cotton Fiber Denim
    Double Length Knife Pocket (Coin Pocket)
    Hidden Rivets
    Black Dyed Cowhide Leather Tag
    Red RJB Embroidered Logo
    Copper RJB Rivets

    Modeled by Cesar Ramos of Mission Hill Saloon and shot by Sidney Lo.

    Both the 105BSP & the 106BSP will be released at Self Edge on December 20th at Noon and at the same time via our online store. 100 pairs of each model were produced by RJB. Check the online store for more hi-res photos, specs, and pricing:

    Double Boomtime Winter Flannels from Flat Head

    Over two years ago when we met Mr. Kobayashi, the founder and president of Flat Head, for the first time he was wearing a shirt which we fell in love with instantly. We couldn't believe the quality of the fabric and how much character there was within the pattern of the flannel, it was this shirt he was wearing...

    From Flat Head's new Winter line, made of a heavy flannel comes these new super comfortable flannel shirts made of 100% Zimbabwe cotton where the interior of the shirt has been combed to a super soft feel.

    The fabric is woven on a vintage loom and therefore has a very three dimensional pattern due to the shuttle loom and also the heavy gauge of thread used to weave the flannel.

    The shirt is available in three colors, and are available only as one run with no restocks. All come with selvedge side seam accents and mother of pearl inlay snap buttons including the self edging fabric running up the inner seam of the front of the shirt.

    The Winter Flannel is modeled by Mission Badass Josh Harris and shot by Sidney Lo. Check the online store for hi-res photos, specs, and more information:

    I'd say it's either the Flat Head F310 or the Skull 5010. Both are quite slim, especially if you size down on the Flat Head.

    We don't have big sales... We rarely ever even have small sales.
    We have no problem going through our stock as it is, which is why we never really have the need to have a sale.

    So, I'm soaking my FHs inside out, just got them. When I hang dry them[or just set them on the ground to dry] do I keep them inside out or put them back to normal?

    Kiya, is Patina up and running yet? I've been debating a pair of White's LTTs, but I'm going to be in SF in February and going bespoke (which is kind of what you're doing, right?) would be awfully tempting.
