    I am interested in the 103, I would like to know if the 103 is a straight fit, or a slim straight fit. I know the description says slim straight but it looks like a Levis 501 to me.

    I'm interested in finding another model that would fit like the SD-101, which I find extremely comfy.

    Introducing Studio D'Artisan - The First Of The "Osaka 5"


    One of the lines we fell in love with in the 90’s when we first discovered Japanese denim was Studio D’Artisan. Known as the first of the “Osaka 5” companies to have started the Japanese denim industry which we know today. Studio D’Artisan were the first ones to use deadstock hardware on their jeans and the first ones to create shuttle loom woven hank dyed jeans in Japan. They’ve maintained a playful image over the years, which is one of our favorite things about the brand. After nearly 40 years they still find humor in every element of what they do.

    We hope to grow with this legendary Japanese company and bring you a wide range of what they produce; from jeans to belts to shirts to sweaters, it’s all done very well. We’ll be getting new deliveries every two months throughout the rest of the year to round out the selection of what Studio D’Artisan offers and have some very special releases planned for later this year.

    Hey @kiya - Back in 2005 or 2006, Studio D'Artisan was my introduction to Japanese denim. 10 years later, still wearing them, albeit a few waist sizes up (I was 31, 155 lbs and lean. These days, I am 175, and a full 2 sizes larger in the waist (and a size larger in shirts and jackets). Sigh... age, delicious carbs...

    I started off wth the same SD-103 model that everyone wears, as well as a left handed, blue grey model.

    Yes, i've loved this brand for so many years and it's great that we're finally able to carry it. We have a lot of special releases in store for the fall and winter that i believe will impress even the most seasoned denim aficionado.

    Studio D'Artisan Hank-Dyed Natural Indigo Jeans, Indigo Jacquard Shirts, & Wild Ass Loopwheeled Tees

    One of the strongest shipments of product of the year has just shown up, this one from Studio D'Artisan. They've done a very limited new jean made of a natural indigo hank-dyed yarns. Limited to only 100 pairs worldwide this jean has been triple-stitched throughout yet looks like a narrow double needle stitch due to the third (outer) stitch being indigo dyed cotton. Lot's of very unique details on this jean, not to mention the denim is absolutely beautiful.

    We've seen quite a few jacquard woven shirts but not many which are an intricate pattern in indigo stitched over an indigo yarn dyed base, it's indigo overload this month with SDA. The shirts look like a dark navy but there is a three dimensional pattern woven over the base; these come in two versions, a tree pattern and a pineapple pattern. We have one which we've been wearing and washing and the pattern is more apparent as the garment lightens up in shade with normal wear.

    Along with these items we have some super wild loopwheeled t-shirts, stitched together with a flatlock stitch machine. The horizontal weave pattern on these t-shirts is apparent when new, but really comes alive after you've washed the shirt as it twists the garment in the direction of the loopwheeling machine's stitch.

    All these items are available now in our online store and at all five Self Edge stores.

    Studio D'Artisan Shirts, Nirvana Tees, Loopwheeled Pocket Tees, Indigo Dyed Watch Caps, and SD-507 Restock

    Studio D'Artisan have just hit us with a strong shipment of shirts, loopwheeled blank pocket tees, indigo dyed watch caps, an SD-507 jean restock, and one very strange Nirvana t-shirt.

    The short sleeved shirts are a standout from this current collection. We have a mixed camo shirt, a wabash with some fine detailing, and a check flannel with indigo-dyed navy yarns.

    The loopwheeled blank t-shirts are of the quality you'd expect from SDA with a rounded chest pocket and a true loopwheeled fabric that will become better with age. Make sure to check out the Nirvana t-shirt, it's a doozy.

    Studio D'Artisan Winter Collection of Jackets, Shirts, & WWII Jeans

    Studio D'Artisan has just delivered to us a large shipment of new jackets, shirts, sweaters, and more.

    We've received a wild new indigo-dyed sashiko jacket, available in a dark and bleached version. These are warm, have hand pockets, and are cut at a perfect fit and length to wear with nearly any outfit.

    SDA has stepped up their loopwheeled sweaters by doing a limited run of 200 in Suvin Gold cotton, one of the world's most exotic cotton types. Suvin Gold is extremely difficult to grow and when spun and woven creates a very silky textured fleece with a cashmere-like feel.

    We've also received their new WWII 15oz denim jean. This new model has some cool details like a triple stitched yoke and custom SDA camo pocket bags.

    Along with these items we've also received indigo dyed loopwheeled sweaters, chambray shirts, chainstitched embroidered shirts, and more.

    Studio D'Artisan Nep Denim Jeans, Indigo Dyed Heavy Flannel, & Stoneware Mugs

    We've just received a shipment of jeans, winter flannels, and stoneware mugs from Studio D'Artisan.

    Their new Nep Denim Selvedge jeans are made of mixed length cotton staples to achieve a unique lightly nepped denim. We had this run produced exclusively for us without the crotch rivet, we feel this gives the front of the jean a cleaner look.

    We love Studio D'Artisan's flannel shirts and this new one is quite special with the blue parts of the pattern being pure indigo dyed. Over time the blue with fade just like a pair of jeans with the pattern changing slightly as the indigo fades away.

    We've also received a small number of their new stoneware mugs with an original shape and branded with SDA's artwork all around. These are available now in three colors.

    Studio D'Artisan Memphis x Zimbabwe Jeans, Natural Indigo Hank-Dyed Jeans, & Steel Buckle Belts

    Studio D'Artisan is an especially exciting brand for us because of how well they still push the envelope for a brand that's been around since the late 70's. This month we've receive two very special new jean models and a new belt in two colors.

    Studio D'Artisan's newest denim is a 50/50 blend of Memphis and Zimbabwe cotton fibers. Memphis cotton is known for its short staple giving the fabric a slubby look while Zimbabwe cotton is known for its long staple giving the fabric a soft hand. The blend of these two gives the denim a unique hand feel while allowing the short staple to peek through for a little bit of slub action.

    For this year's natural indigo dyed jean SDA has made the heaviest weight denim they've ever done using this method of indigo hank dying. Normally a jean like this will top out at about 16oz but they've produced one which clocks in at 18.5oz.

    Both of these jeans along with two new steel buckle belts are available now at all of our stores and in our online store.
