Omar & The String Poppers at Self Edge New York

Self Edge & Wild Records Present: The Lower East Side Rockabilly Hob Nob from Self Edge on Vimeo.

The amount of style in this video from a recent Self Edge New York party is completely off the charts. It’s kind of funny to think about how many of these kids may have gotten into rockabilly and swing music through their obsession with 50’s clothing… and their love of that early Americana style clothing came from an obsession with selvage denim… and their obsession with shuttle loomed denim came from the need to have something that looked good with their huge sneaker collection. Not all, but many of these kids started out as sneaker heads, and as they grew up their interests varied from kicks to jeans to everything else. This is what happens when OCD meets fashion.
