Self Edge X Imperial08

Self Edge x Imperial = SEXI08

As our 8th collaboration we bring the SEXI08... An 18.5cm slim cut jean made of 15oz unsanforized denim.

We've moved the production of this jean to Japan, where normally Imperial's jeans are made in Australia. Moving the production to Japan enabled us to work closely with the factory and the mill that produced the denim. The outcome is a 15oz unsanforized right hand twill denim made in both indigo and black produced in Ibara, Japan. For those that always wanted an Imperial jean to fade like many of the other Japanese lines we carry with a high intensity fade and quite a bit of character, these are for you as they're sure to age well and fade over time due to the lack of processing the denim has gone through after the weaving process.

The leather tag and silkscreened pocket bag art are an homage to the Australian, Japanese, and American connection. Small rear pockets embroidered with dark indigo thread, chainstitched hems, a custom leather tag, and a silkscreened inner pocket bag round out the features on this custom collaboration between Self Edge and Australia's Imperial Clothing Company. The silhouette is a slim fitting 18.5cm cut with an inseam that shrinks to ~36". These are, quite possibly, the perfect slim fitting jean for us.

The SEXI08 jean will be released at Self Edge San Francisco & Self Edge New York at Noon (Local Time) on Saturday, September 5th.
The jeans will also be available online at 2pm (PST) the same day.

hmmm black or blue that is the question...


Oh and how should i size on these yall think? TTS????
Aug 31, 2009 @ 17:22
Yes, true to size, Kiya said these were made an inch larger so after a post soak/wash they should measure down to your true waist.

They're actually not that slim. It'll stretch out. I think they'll look similar (but not exactly because of different cuts) like the SEXI04.
Aug 31, 2009 @ 20:09
Actually these are quite slim, for a size 30, the thigh runs at 11.2" and the leg opening runs at 7.3." pre-soak, so if you can imagine post soak, they will turn out slimmer then thought.

i dont think i'd be able to get my thighs through the jeans post-soak without losing blood circulationblinkyeyes
Aug 31, 2009 @ 20:42
I know they are completely diff. than the io4's but I was expecting them to look alot different too...they look very similar.

they cut looks good, but not really loving the color of the stitch and the black on the pockets
Aug 31, 2009 @ 22:32
I would really like to get a black pair, just wish the inseam didnt shrink so much.

you can always soak and pull on the inseam to reduce the shrinking as it's drying.
Aug 31, 2009 @ 22:58
How do you do that?


These look real good...but $345 is a lot of money for one pair of jeans, especially for a student. I guess I should decide if I want to just bite the bullet and splurge

Wait, 37 is too short for you? How tall are you? You must be 6'8" or taller. When are you kids going to realize that having jeans 6" too long isn't cool, it's stupid?

Maybe he just likes pancake stacks.

goes for me to

yep


Dukes are slimmer in the thigh by about half an inch, but the SEXI08s taper down a lot.
Aug 31, 2009 @ 23:34
isn't that pre-soak though
Aug 31, 2009 @ 23:36
they'll stretch
but i dont even know if ur buying so who am i to talk
Aug 31, 2009 @ 23:38
yea i aint buyin, was just expressin my opinion, is all good smokeyface
Aug 31, 2009 @ 23:50
These are nothing like dukes... dukes are sanforized to begin with while the SEXI08 is unsanforized. Dukes don't really shrink where the unsanforized SEXI08 will shrink a lot after a soak. Dukes will stretch a fair bit.
Aug 31, 2009 @ 23:54

And yeah, those are presoak, so SEXI08s are going to end up slimmer in the thighs anyways.

i want these, but no size 36 is a deal breaker. the 34s will likely be too small.
