My tailoring gig for Self Edge has been crazy lately. We’ve opened online orders to our chainstitched hemming, and my work load has nearly tripled. I tailored 25 pairs of jeans just yesterday, which left my hands stained with an indigo dye, but also earned me enough to finally purchase a pair of the very limited Self Edge X Flat Head collaboration jeans! My Samurais are finally getting retired (after 16 months of heavy use) and I’m loving my new indigo SEXFHs.
A lot of folks are really over-soaking their SEXFHs to get the shrinkage out. I’ve seen a lot of these jeans and figure even though the inseam may shrink 2 inches, it’s the type of material that will probably just stretch back out about 1.5 inches. So I decided to go with a real light, cold soak to keep them pretty stiff and raw. The rise is a little low on them, but the rest of the fit is absolutely perfect for me, I’m really loving them.
Btw, I’ve got a pair of brand new Self Edge X Flat Head collaboration jeans, for sale. They are a 31″ waist/ 31″ inseam, and could be yours for $300. Email me if intersted; yoyogenius at gmail
