Self Edge x Iron Heart – The denim nuts over at Self Edge kick off Spring with their 22nd collaboration with Japan’s Iron Heart. The SEXIH22-633s uses an unusually thick 20oz unsanforized loomstate left hand twill denim produced from gray weft (fill) yarns. The jeans are incredibly durable and offer a feel that is unique to left hand twill. The rich texture of the loomstate also means high definition (creases) at the points of wear; expect ridiculous stacking and honeycombs. The jeans are available exclusively through Self Edge for $400.
