    The Skull 5010 6x6 Jean is Back!

    After a long hiatus one of our most popular jeans in the store is back... The Skull 5010 6x6 slim cut jean is finally back in stock at Self Edge.

    The Skull 5010 6x6 is known for it's ultra stiff dark indigo denim with a straight slim fit, and is now for the first time available up to size 36. Over the last six months especially we've seen some particularly amazing looking broken in pairs of this jean, and we think because of this the popularity of this model is about to skyrocket again..

    Along with the 5010 6x6 Indigo Jean we also received a full restock of the 5010 Black Selvedge Jean, the Skull Tan Medallion Wallet, and both Skull T-Shirts. All four of these items are now available in our online store. Check the store for specs, measurements, and more..

    So as the raw do not shrink much, did they actually create 2 different patterns for the 5010xx one-wash and raw?
    While the waist fits great, I feel the thighs are too big, and I play soccer, so I don't understand this.

    They've actually been washed in extremely hot water once, then dried in industrial dryers, then washed AGAIN in extremely hot water, and then dried again. The process literally destroys the denim...

    Kiya, what do you mean by "destroy the denim"? Longevity? Fading characteristics? Just curious. Thanks.
