Self Edge x Imperial = SEXI14

[B]Self Edge x Imperial = SEXI14[/B] Imperial, our sole brand from Australia, comes back with another jean made for lovers of slim cuts. This is a further interpretation of the slim centimeter cut, this time tweaking the silhouette a bit to match up to the 18cm fit. This fit isn't necessarily slimmer than the last collaboration we did with Imperial, it's just a little different in it's shaping. We've had Imperial produce this collaboration jean in Japan, whereas their regular jeans are made of Japanese fabrics but cut and sewn in Australia. The denim is a 15oz unsanforized selvedge fabric that's a super loose weave available in both indigo and black, both are sure to age very well considering the texture of the denim and the loomstate nature of the fabric. The denim was woven in Okayama and the jean was cut and sewn within minutes of the denim mill. The denim has a very unique feel to it, it's abrasive at first but definitely not very rigid due to the lack of starch. The belt loops are rolled for sturdiness, the pack pockets are riveted, and the inside pocket bags are screened. [B]SEXI14 Indigo & Black [/B] [Image]

Strike Gold Jeans from Japan

[B]Introducing Strike Gold from Japan[/B] Hailing from Okayama, the denim capital of Japan, Strike Gold is a line created by the Hamamoto brothers with over twenty years of experience in the Japanese denim industry. Starting off the collection with two denim styles and two belts. The SG1101 jean is a straight leg fit with a flattering silhouette for all body types with a medium rise and a classic fit. The SG1105 jean is a slim leg fit that's got a medium rise and is slim from the top to the bottom but doesn't hug the calf. The jean has a burly feel to it at first due to the rigid denim that comes in it's loomstate form, after a warm water soak the denim opens up a bit and begins to soften with wear. This denim from Strike Gold has massive character even when raw with a lot of loom chatter visible from both the warp and weft sides of the denim. Due to the abrasive nature of the denim when raw the jean will age faster than most jeans and yield an extremely high contrast fade with normal wear. Strike Gold has gone to the extent of getting custom rivets made which have a male part made of iron and a female piece made of copper. The reason for this is that the male piece will begin to rust over time but the female piece will darken and leaf over time giving the wearer a well rounded aging pattern even on the rivets. Crazy for some, essential for others. [B]The Strike Gold SG1101 - Straight Leg[/B] [Image]

Self Edge x Dry Bones x Superfuture = The Superfuture Jean

[B]Self Edge x Dry Bones x Superfuture = SEXDBXS09 ** The Superfuture Jean[/B] Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz and Simon Kristoph. Hailing from Australia, their website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim. Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers. Supertalk, boasting an extremely active 40,000 users, is home to a sub-forum named Superdenim which is dedicated to all things denim, workwear, leather boots, and Americana reproductions. Over the years Superdenim has seen it's fair share of denim contests, where the contestants are to wear the same jean every day for a certain duration of time, most commonly the span of the contest lasts from 12 to 24 months. With the SEXDBXS09 jean we've allowed the users of Superfuture and Superdenim to give their input on styling, cut, and accents for a very special jean to be released on February 28th; even the leather patch was designed by a renown artist from Texas named JimmyC from Superfuture. The SEXDBXS09 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. Months were spent getting the denim exactly where we wanted it and the denim was woven for this project; as the denim has never before been used on another garment nobody knows exactly how it will age. Self Edge has chosen a denim with a little more weight than the classic styles, at 16oz it's got heft to it, and with massive amounts of character showing from the warp and weft it's sure to age well. The fit is that of a straight leg jean, slightly slimmed down, with a button fly and a long inseam which can be hemmed to the wearer's length without altering the silhouette. We're proud the way the denim has turned out, it's something we've never had in the store before. The denim has been calendered and singed, yet hasn't lost any character which is instantly recognizable even at a quick glance. Rounded out with hidden rivets, cowhide leather tag, Superfuture dual-tone "Rep Bar" stitch, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, and a cotton poly-core stitch; this jean is exactly what we want to be seen in.

Self Edge x Flat Head = SEXFH05

The most anticipated release we've had since our opening will take place on April 19th in the form of the SEXFH05. Our collaboration with Flat Head is a reworking of the famous 3001/F310 jean. We took what we think is a great slim cut jean, and tweaked it to create the perfect slim cut jean for us. We reduced the leg opening of the jean so that there is more of a taper near the hem, increased the denim weight (16oz for Indigo - 14.5oz for Black), made it a button-fly enclosure, brought back half of the old arcuates with the forked tongue, all the stitching consists of Cotton-Poly Core thread, and the pocket bags are made of military grade olive herringbone fabric. [B]The SEXFH05 will be released on Saturday April 19th at 12:00 (PST) in-store and at 17:00 (PST) via our online store.[/B] [I]Sizes run from 28 to 36, and will retail for $335. Each pair comes with a Self Edge x Flat Head Branded Classic Duncan Butterfly Yoyo.[/I].. Production run: SEXFH05 = 110 / SEXFH05BK = 35 Please see the product page under Flat Head for all specs, sizing/shrinking/stretching info, and more photos. SEXFH05: [URL] [Image]

Dry Bones - Japanese Denim

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.
