Dry Bones - Japanese Denim

February 19, 2008 @ 03:14:14
I couldn't find a thread that was about Dry Bones, so i figured i'd start one.
I've been into their stuff for years.. i'd say i was into their work far before Flat Head, Samurai, Oni, JB, etc.. They're from the first wave of Japanese denim companies, about twenty years old now..

We'll start this off with their newest release..
I know a few of you on here have some Dry Bones jackets and some jeans... if you've done some good damage on them, post up some shots, i'd love to see some it.

The Dry Bones Red-D Slim Jeans have just been launched...
Shit is beyond hot.

S.L. is wearing them one size above his normal size (usual size = 28, size being worn = 29)

I think you and I both know that you created this Thread so you can sell Dry Bones off your website. Let's not play games.

and your 2nd post confirms just that. SMH

And I was wondering, what is the "sushi-ear" denim?

i would of said the same thing. exposure to new denim cannot be a bad thing. especially when it seems like HB overall is stepping up its denim knowledge.

that denim jacket is talking to me....

Users from this forum and people who write for Hypebeast support my store, and in turn i feel that if a new product or brand is doing something great, i should share it with the users of said site.
Would you rather i just keep answering the same questions about Nudies and 3001's and never let on about any news or new things from the Japanese denim world?

JET DENIM!

oh... i thought i saw james kelch in a turh tee in some vid i was watching last night... true school skateboarding and EMB FTW!

I have no problem with you creating a thread for Dry Bones. But I do have a issue with the way that went about it. To me, it felt like you weren't forthcoming with your real intent. Would I be correct in saying that you knew from the get go, that you were going to post a link to SelfEdge? If thats the case, why not just say so. "SelfEdge would like to introduce you to a great brand, Dry Bones..."

But coming under the guise of "I couldn't find a Dry Bones thread..." to me sounds dispicable. Just be honest.

With all that being said, I don't care if you take about 3001 or Nudies or anything else. But be aware that people will never appreciate their forum turning into a nest of salesmen.

if you dont know that kiyas gonna post a link to SE, then read the forums more. if he starts a thread, chances are its to promote something in his store.

and to "people will never appreciate their forum turning into a nest of salesmen," kiya has my blessing to post links to his site... if it wasnt for him alot of hypebeasters probably would stil be rocking LRG jeans with your esssbeees

If there was a Dry Bones thread i would have used THAT to introduce their new slim jeans, but there wasn't, so i created one.
What'd you want me to do, post the info in a Dior Homme thread? Or wait six months or a year for somebody else to create a thread?
February 20, 2008 @ 22:27:00
actually you did make a dry bones thread here b4. but the last post was like a year ago.blushing

You pay for what you get, and also I think its because the denim is imported from outer-countries (i.e. japan) so the shipping must be heavy

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think SE sells most if not everything at retail price. My friend bought a pair of Samurai jeans in Hong Kong and they were the same reatail as BiG. He told me that Flat Heads were $280 at the shop in Hong Kong also. It's just the Denim companies. Aything Japanese is expensive anyway. =/

Do the math kids.

There's a massive import tariff. On top of shipping. Follow the golden retail rule of 2.5x overhead cost.... and blaow, you got yourself a $350+ pair of jeans... wait, it's only $285-300? I wonder who's pocket that missing dough's coming out of.

seems pretty absurd that i can get a pair of sugarcane okinawas here in Japan for about $150 but its double that price at Selfedge

how much is abercrombie and fitch in japan? how about true religion? rogan?
February 21, 2008 @ 12:05:01
Sugar Cane is the ONLY brand where the price outside Japan is quite a bit higher, so using them isn't a good example when the other 30 brands doing a similar thing don't follow the same pricing structure.

Dry Bones Red-D sz 31
Stacks are crazy

February 21, 2008 @ 13:39:32
those look a little big.

It's partially because the denim is so rigid it's not falling properly down the leg just yet. Also, taking 5" or so off the length will help with that..

Sugarcane has a mandated retail price. Otherwise, you're missing the entire point. You're buying product in its country of origin.

I'm gonna open a denim store and sell everything for 10 bucks higher than manufacturing price.smokeyface

These jeans probably costed like $50 bucks to produce.


Kickapop, you're way off base here. You just compared manufacturing cost to overhead cost for a manufacturer. No shit it cost ~$50 to produce, but whole sale would be at least 2x that so they would recoup overhead and gain profit.
February 21, 2008 @ 16:33:00
why is everything at SelfEdge so god damn expensive.


shit is quality mang!!!
February 21, 2008 @ 17:51:27

What I was thinking.
February 21, 2008 @ 18:11:34
sweet looking dry bones dom!
February 21, 2008 @ 19:05:03
I'm happy with the fit being a bit big, I wasn't really looking for skinny/tight tbh
February 22, 2008 @ 03:35:49
Isn't it cut for more of a slim fit?
