    Self Edge x Dry Bones x Superfuture x Styleforum = SEXDBXSXS12 One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes. Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz and Simon Kristoph. Hailing from Australia, their website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim. Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers. Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, focusing on subjects like travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing. This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks. The SEXDBXSXS12 jean will be released at Self Edge San Francisco, Self Edge New York, and Self Edge Los Angeles at Noon (Local Time) on Saturday, December 4th. The jeans will also be available online at 10am (PST) the same day in the online store. Check our online store for more information on this jean, a complete specification list, measurements, and hi-res photos: https://www.selfedge.com/shop/index....index&cPath=72 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Any of you guys who cut off the Styleforum tag will get cut. Also, we need to have a contest. That's all I gotta say.

    Didn't that one pair of SDAs that was supposed to be a cross between a Lee-pro and a Levi's repro have two patches? Or maybe it was some other collab, but I've seen it done before.

    And yeah, thems look good. [​IMG] SF needs a "like" button.

    Brian SD designed the patch, snuff_daddy.

    And many jeans companies have already done the 2 patches thing. Not sure what I'd do about the extra patches. I've gotta sleep on these but my previous Dry Bones faded really well.
