    Turn them inside out and soak them in hot water for 30 minutes, take then right out of the water and throw them (still inside out) into the dryer on HIGH for 40 minutes till they're completely dry. That'll do the trick and won't damage the jeans.

    Thank Kiya. I did just as you instructed and the waist/hip/thigh all shrunk a bit. Now it fits much better.

    Is this shrinkage permanent or am I at risk of stretching them out again?

    You'll get about .5" of stretch after some long wear, but not much more. .5" is considerable in the thighs though. Nope, hopefully this year, i wouldn't wait.
    Yea I don't really know how to go about getting the 50106x6 model I want being as both you and BIG in New York are sold outof my size.

    Shrinkage is never permanent, it'll give a bit over time with regular wear, but not much.

    Fall Collections from Iron Heart, Sugar Cane, Buzz Rickson, & Self Edge

    Fall collections are coming into stock here with some rare restocks and also some new items.

    Iron Heart brings us the Viyella flannels and the Shaggy Check Snap Shirts, both made of soft flannel fabric with the Shaggy Checks super brushed on the outside for a very soft hand.

    From Sugar Cane we've received a Black Jean Cord shirt, a Navy Mini-Herringbone Workshirt, and a restock of the black and blue Pin Check Short Sleeve Shirts.

    Buzz Rickson has done their yearly run of their famous 1910's style Navy Pea Coats, very limited in quantities and we only receive these once a year, once sold out we'll have no more for another year. We've also gotten a full restock of the Grey Loopwheeled Crewnecks which are an essential basic to any wardrobe.

    We've gotten a hold of some deadstock Liberty of London fabric from the 1960's and we've used it line the new Self Edge Mr. Lucky caps, a denim cap with leather trim and a Liberty of London fabric lining, quite possible the most impressive cap we've ever seen construction and detail wise.

    All these items are available now in our online store and at both Self Edge San Francisco and Self Edge New York. Check the online store for hi-res photos and full specs and measurements:

    Another fresh shipment of new garments have come in from Japan including some highly anticipated items from Iron Heart and Buzz Rickson.

    Iron Heart has done a great chambray shirt in three colors, all of which are the heaviest chambray material we've ever seen. Great fit and strong as steel snap buttons make up the most intense chambray shirt we've ever had.

    Buzz Rickson releases a period correct Navy Wool Flannel CPO shirt that's a beautiful reduced wool in navy color that's soft and extremely wearable, perfect for the winter months. Also from Buzz Rickson is a black loopwheeled crewneck with a tube body design for that very specific vintage feel and fit.

    Sugar Cane has also produced a new workshirt made of a 100% natural indigo dyed cotton fabric that washes down to a beautfiul hue of blue.

    All these items are now available at SESF, SENY, and in our online store. Check the online store product pages for hi-res images, measurements, and far more specs than you probably need for a shirt:

    Kiya, since the BSP's ended up not being to my liking...do you think I should go with the 3005's or the F380?

    It would be ok if they were getting released in a couple days, but it's over a month off. Not fair Kiya.

    Mister Freedom * Speed-Safe Clothing for Modern Riders * 1ST GEAR Mister Freedom, never one to disappoint with a compelling story-line or garment line, has moved on this season from the naval theme to clothing inspired by 1930's to 1960's motorcycle gear. With the "Speed-Safe Clothing for Modern Riders" collection Mister Freedom delves deep into the vaults of lost designs and modifies them to today's needs of riders and non-riders of two wheeled motorized vehicles. Fully functional in every way and designed beyond what you'd expect from a small line made in Japan by those obsessed with the years past of garment manufacturing. Every piece is manufactured by Toyo Enterprises (Sugar Cane) with the utmost attention to detail, just as you'd expect from anything produced by Toyo and overseen by Mister Freedom himself, Christophe Loiron. With the collection in first gear we bring you four pieces. A pair of Rider's Dungarees made of a beautiful left hand twill denim, a Mechanic's Shirt made of a indigo salt & pepper fabric similar to a medium weight chambray, a Mechanic's Sweatshirt available in three colors with great detailing and fabric that has to be felt in person to be fully understood, and last but not least a Denim Rider's Cap which is exclusive to Self Edge San Francisco outside of Japan. As with all Mister Freedom collections these are made in extremely small runs and will not be available for long, so needless to say, if you want anything, do not wait. We'll be shifting into second gear in early November with a Horsehide Jacket and a Mulholland Master Jacket, and some other special surprises to come in a few months from now. Check the online store for more images. All these items are now available at SESF, SENY, and in our online store. The Denim Rider's Cap is only available at Self Edge San Francisco.
