    Flat Head Animal Face Winter Snap Flannels
    Flat Head has just delivered to us their new Animal Face Winter Snap shirts. These flannels are brushed on the inside, come with real mother of pearl inlay buttons, and are woven on a shuttle loom so the pattern is nearly three dimensional when looking at them up close.

    These are available now in three colors at all of our stores.

    Do they run slim?

    Yes, they're slim fit and are darted in the back. I would size up one from your usual size.

    Whitesville x Tailor Toyo Leather & Wool Souvenir/Varsity Jacket
    Two of Toyo's finest brands have combined what they do best into one hot jacket. Taking Whitesville's amazing varsity style jackets and combining it with Tailor Toyo's many years of making Japanese souvenir jackets is a brilliant move.

    These are limited to only five per retailer, will not be produced again, and are available now at all of our stores.

    The Flat Head Delraiser Horsehide Jacket
    The Flat Head Delraiser jacket is back! We think this is the ultimate version of this jacket available from any brand. The Shinki semi-aniline finished horsehide, the custom zippers and snaps, the original Flat Head liner, and the toned down look due to the removal of the epaulets and belt make this our favorite leather jacket we’ve carried.

    These are only produced once a year due to the extremely limited supply of this particular leather from Shinki. Also, they’re now available up to size 46.

    You can find these available now at our stores and online.

    Roy's Jeans Are Back!
    After many years of a Roy drought at Self Edge his jeans are back at our stores.

    This new release is a reworked version of his popular R01 model. 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. 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.

    These jeans come with a vegan patch, freehand embroidered "Roy" and size number on the pocket bag, lined rear and coin pockets, solid copper rivets, mil-spec blackened brass buttons, and come in a straight leg cut with a little taper to the lower leg.

    Check the product page for full measurements, a full spec list, more info, and high-res photographs.

    These jeans will go on sale at noon (local time) at all Self Edge stores on Friday, February 15th. They will also go on sale at 2pm PST on the same day in our online store.

    @kiya are you going to be regularly stocking or rather restocking certain styles of Finecreek or are they going to be limited to a preorder. I'd really like the Virginia Beach but its out of stock in my size. I missed out on the most recent preorder unfortunately and I was hoping to get a similar style at some point.

    Every season there will be a chance to pre-order jackets and we'll also be stocking 1 to 3 models every season and would announce those models once that season arrives.
    If you'd like to order the Virginia Beach please email us ASAP, last deadline is this weekend for fall deliveries.

    @kiya hoping this is the right place to ask, but I've been browsing the website trying to find a new pair of denim and have a question about fits. As this will be my first foray into high end denim, could you help steer me to a brand or style that would accommodate a 31" waist and 24" thighs? Medium to high rise is preferable. Thanks!

    I think you should check out the various types of denim the Iron Heart 633 fit comes in:
    https://www.selfedge.com/index.php?route=product/search&description=1&search=633

    Those all have a true medium rise and the waist to thigh ratio is what you're looking for.

    Almost all Iron Heart jeans run true to size, meaning the tagged size matches the measured waist.
    If you're used to vanity sized jeans (most jean brands from the US and Europe) please size up.
