    Self Edge x Iron Heart = SEXIH07 - BORN TUFF

    The third collaboration between Self Edge and Iron Heart has been over a year in the making. This jean, designed by Diesel, went through multiple changes of fabrics and cuts until it's final iteration was conceived in a jean that would be not only a very versatile cut but in a fabric that would outlast anything else.

    A heavyweight unsanforized denim which for the first time ever from Iron Heart ages with extreme contrast and great character that rivals the best Japanese denim available today. With a silhouette that Diesel designed to fit every body type we've decided to do these in a wide range of sizes due to it's extremely versatile fit.

    We're very excited about the black version of this jean, the SEXIH07BK. This version of the SEXIH07 jean has been overdyed black with a fugitive pigment dye which is an unstable and un-permanent dye that fades to later show the indigo denim underneath. Essentially this is a denim that begins black and fades to indigo in high friction areas, or what the Japanese call the "atari" fade. This particular model is what we feel the most original and exciting fabric we've ever put into a jean.
    Iron Heart released a set of overdyed jeans (using their flagship 21oz sanforized denim) four years ago, those turned out to be some of the best looking worn jeans we've ever seen from the few people that got their hands on a pair, we expect these to look even better considering what's underneath the dye.

    Diesel says "THESE JEANS ARE BORN TUFF - RUFF RUFF"

    The SEXIH07 and SEXIH07BK jeans will be released at Self Edge San Francisco & Self Edge New York at Noon (Local Time) on Saturday, December 5th.
    The jeans will also be available online at 2pm (PST) the same day in the online store.

    You make going into credit card debt a very attractive option.

    designed by diesel? seriously?! they may have horrible branding and stupid washes, but there's one thing they can do and that's make a pair of jeans that fit like a glove. no hip flare, diaper butt business here hopefully [​IMG] ----- *edit* man, i got excited for a sec and thought you really meant diesel jeans, aw poop.

    I foresee a problem with branding these as designed by Diesel. Seems like at least a few do not know the name of your dog.

    I want to say that "Diesel" is Kiya's dog, hence the patch.

    Check the tag, it's a different Diesel. Did you mention there would also be a jacket released with these, Kiya? Also, will the overdye come off on other garments, couches, etc?

    If you ever check out the dog's Twitter posts, you'd see he lives more comfortably than I do.
