    Self Edge and Iron Heart have come together to bring you the world's first pair
    of jeans designed from the ground up for cyclists. Months of testing and analyzing
    where other jeans failed during extended use while cycling led to the creation of
    the SEXIH03; to create a middle ground between fashion and functionality. For those that enjoy artisan Japanese denim, cycling, and fashion these are the ultimate pair of jeans.

    Made in Japan from the world's heaviest weight denim coming in at twenty-one ounces per square yard.


    -21 ounce Sanforized Japanese Selvedge Denim
    -Dark Indigo Stitch Half Arcuate Pocket Design
    -Reinforced crotch rivet
    -Hidden rivets
    -Crotch cross-stitch moved 1" forward to delay crotch blow-outs and for the comfort of the rider
    -Rear pockets placed .75" farther to the outside of the jeans to avoid sitting on
    anything stored in the pockets
    -Rear pockets sized to fit a mini U-Lock
    -Higher rise in the back, lower rise in the front for maximum comfort and mobility
    -Extra belt loops at the rear of the waistband to avoid torn loops from backpack
    usage and to prevent the pulling down of the waistband if a belt is worn while riding
    -Spring loaded clip metal key fob hanging from front belt loop
    -Medium relaxed fit in the upper and thigh region, super slim fit below the knee

    Production:
    125 Selvedge Indigo Pairs = SEXIH03 ($360)
    25 Non-Selvedge Black Pairs SEXIH03BK ($360)
    Sizes: 27/28/29/30/31/32/33/34/36/38
    Inseam: 35.2"

    More fit pics to follow shortly.

    The SEXIH03 and SEXIH03BK will go on sale in-store on Saturday November 24th and will be available at http://www.selfedge.com on December 1st.

    Numbering appears to be based on the SEx. There was SExIH01, SExIH01Bk, SExSC02, SExIH03, and coming sometime or other SExImp04, SExFH05 (with an almost certain change to the name of the last one).

    Looks a good idea, but I wonder whether the fabric is not too heavy. Would you wear such a fabric while exercising for an hour?

    The cut looks close at the knees and bum. I wonder whether there is really anough room in these to pedal without rubbing against the fabric. And I wonder how much flexibility there would be for mounting and dismounting.

    Same applies to the U-lock in the pocket idea. You would feel the pressure of it like an iron bar pressing on your rear as you ride. Not something I would bother with - there's a reason those things have frame mounts.

    There is also no mention of what's inside. If they are unlined, then they are likely to lead to chafing, like any other pair of pants. Even shy shorts have a chamois lining for comfort.

    I'm inclined to think these are a gimmick, and I doubt any cyclist would find them comfortable for anything but a short ride.

    I hear from ironheart users that the denim is actually quite breathable for being 21oz. Also, i think the ulock in the pocket is slightly alleviated by the pockets being spaced a bit more apart so you don't sit on them.

    When they are available on the online store, i'm going to link some of my biker friends as even though this model isn't for me, they might think it's kinda cool.

    I think the name is poorly chosen. Cyclist makes people think of weekend racers and the like. These jeans will be terrible for them. But, for commuters, and random bike riders, and such, they'll be great.

    Lots of us toss u-locks in our back pockets already, and a well-positioned one is a nice change.

    I've had plenty of fun riding my bike around in jeans all the time, but something more durable and a bit roomier in the crotch and thighs is really nice.

    And, I've ridden other Iron Hearts around biking. They breathe well, but definitely aren't nearly as nice as proper biking clothes for long rides. For going out, running errands, and the like, they're perfect.

    Well one would assume it is aimed at city riders, who usually don't spend an extended amount of time in the saddle in one go. Some people don't like frame mounts for their bikes and a lot of people carry them either in their pockets or a bag, so for me that's a fantastic idea. I really like the little design features of these jeans and I agree that you wouldn't want to go on a long ride in them but I don't think that even comes into it.

    yeah, definitely for city riders.

    and i wonder, if you spend a lot of time cycling in indigo jeans, are you going to end up with taint fade?
