    3sixteen Heavyweight Hoodies, Indigo-Dyed T-Shirts, & Jean Restocks

    3sixteen have just done a fresh run of their heavyweight hoodies, available now in gray and black. These use a heavy custom woven cotton fleece and custom matte-black (on the black) and gunmetal (on the gray) double-pull YKK zippers. The hoodie has a great fit and we don't think you can buy a better hoodie anywhere near this price.

    Along with the hoodies we've received a restock of 3sixteen's indigo-dyed pocket t-shirts which come in a 2-pack. The first run of these sold out in a matter of days and we're happy to have them back in stock at our shops. These have a slim fit, short arms, and a small pocket and will fade and age over time with regular wear and washings just like a pair of jeans.

    Along with these items we've received full restocks of over 20 different models of 3sixteen and 3sixteen+'s jeans. These are available now at all of our stores.

    do you recommend going TTS on the 3sixteen indigo tees? I'm 6' tall and 41" chest and wondering if a large (after it shrinks) will be too small/short (mainly short). Thanks!

    At your height the L will be too small, go with the XL.

    Introducing Self Edge Mexico - For Sunny People

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    We’re proud to announce the opening of Self Edge Mexico, our first location outside of the USA. Opening in beautiful San Jose del Cabo we’ve tweaked our usual offerings to better fit the year round summer heat and the vibe of the region we’re in. Beaches, sandy dunes, palm trees, amazing fishing and surfing, and more mezcal and tequila than we know what to do with.

    With our new location we’ll be carrying a large assortment of warm weather wear, shorts, eyewear, jewelry, sandals, and even adding a couple of Mexican lines to the mix. With the exception of our two new lines the rest of the products will still be made by the Japanese (and some American) brands which we’ve been stocking for years. We can’t leave out the jeans though, two or three models of jeans from every brand we stock will also be available at SEMX.

    We’ve made a short video with local director Mike Arce, taking you on a trip from Centro San Jose del Cabo to the site which Self Edge is located. You can watch the video above.

    Self Edge Mexico opens Wednesday, October 20th and is located on Flora Farms, an organic farm/restaurant/bar in Animas Bajas, near the beaches and marina right outside San Jose del Cabo. Please check our locations page on our site to see store hours and to download a PDF map of how to get there from the center of town.

    We’re having a large opening party weekend complete with a party at the store, pre-parties, post-parties, a comedy night in San Jose del Cabo with Dean Delray and Nick Youssef, and more. We have quite a few confirmed attendees coming from the states, from brand owners to clients to friends. We’re excited to share an area we love very much with our favorite people. If you plan on making it and need help with travel arrangements please email us at denim@selfedge.com and we can help you sort out your flights and hotel.

    Lady White "Clark" Pocket T-Shirt

    The new Lady White "Clark" Pocket tee has the coolest pocket we've seen on a t-shirt. The pocket shape is inspired by William W. Brown and his iconic pocket design on "Browns Beach" jackets and vests. Lady White have bound the pocket using 1x1 ribbing, allowing for a structured pocket with bar-tacks reinforcing the stress points. The pocket features double needle stitching and a slight angle for easy access.

    The new Clark tee is available now at all Self Edge stores, we forsee this being a staple in our t-shirt line-up. Check the product page for a full specification on the t-shirt, cotton source, and measurements.

    Sugar Cane x Buzz Rickson Indigo Pea Coats, Sugar Cane Shirts, Sun Surf Hoodies, & More

    Fresh from the inner depths of Toyo Enterprises we've received a shipment of Sugar Cane, Buzz Rickson, and Sun Surf winter items.

    The standout piece here is the Sugar Cane x Buzz Rickson pure indigo-dyed jungle cloth pea coat. Sugar Cane took Buzz Rickson's navy pea coat and gave it a classic Sugar Cane treatment while retaining the 26oz melton wool lining. We've also received a very bad ass type III jacket made of a corduroy outer from Sugar Cane with poly-shearling liner and original Sugar Cane snap buttons.

    Along with these items we've received new shirts from Sugar Cane, a wild hoodie from Sun Surf, and a small restock of the raw unsanforized Type II denim jacket.

    Dear Kiya - Please stock XS iron heart shirts !!! Even the size small has a 42 chest usually , which in most brands, is a medium to large. I don't understand their shirt sizing, but their XS is a 38 chest , and Im a 36 chest, but you guys never buy this.

    I'm sorry but we've stocked X-Small in the past and just gotten stuck with that size for months and months.. I'm not sure when the last time you bought or tried on an IH shirt but their sizing has gotten smaller over the years. I know the measurements may not tell the full story but many of their flannels fit smaller than what the measurements suggest.

    So it means even though its shown as a 42in chest it measures smaller?

    Do you guys "update" the sizing chart to reflect that?

    The problem with measurements Is that they're both incomplete, and sometimes give an inaccurate idea of how a garment fits.

    Two garments can have the same measurement in chest, but fit quite differently because of the differences In the back and through the shoulders and whole. The upper back measurement across the lats is hardly ever given.

    Yes, every new shirt is measured to have updated measurements on the site.

    All prices for Flat Head's jeans have been dropped quite a bit this week, this permanent price drop brings all their jeans in the low $300's now. We've recevied restocks of almost all jean models, wallets, rings, bracelets, wallet chains, and more. All these items are available now at all Self Edge stores.

    Polished Good Art Belt Loop Buddy & Ambrosia Magazine

    We've just received a new run of Good Art's Belt Loop Buddy, the best way (and best looking way) to secure your keys onto a belt loop. This new run has a hand finished polish giving the brass a bright gold look. The new run also has a branded circular split-ring.

    Along with the new Belt Loop Buddy run we've received a new magazine by the name of Ambrosia. Ambrosia is made by the same fine people which produce Drift, which by the number of copies we sell, seems to be extremely popular and collectible. Great photos, great writing, and printed on Eames paper. Yes, Eames designed paper, if you can't afford a chair maybe a magazine will do.

    Both of these items are available at all five Self Edge stores now.

    Do any of you guys own the recent 3sixteen crosscut flannel? Can you comment on sizing/fit? I've looked at their fit guide but i'm worried about shrinkage. I normally wear a size large across most brands but with 3sixteen's fit guide it appears a medium would be a better fit. Should I go with a large to account for possible shrinkage?

    How secure are those belt loop buddy's? I've got the the Self Edge "S" and it works pretty good, but looking for something more secure.
