On March 2, 2013, Self Edge dropped an exciting new jean, the Roy SF01 Special Fit jean that Roy himself had reworked from the standard 5-pocket jean. This is one of the nicest detailed jeans we’ve seen in a long time, including thin belt loops created on a 1920’s Union Special belt loop making machine, a nifty leather patch fit onto a smaller than average piece, and completely re-worked front pocket openings. Even the fit has been modified, coming in between a straight and a slim fit for a jean Roy calls the best fitting jean he’s ever created.
Of course it isn’t a special edition Self Edge jean without some excellent denim, and this is no exception with a 14.5 Oz. (16.25 Oz. post soak) loomstate unsanforized indigo denim from Cone Mills, made precisely to Roy’s specs. It’s interesting to note, this happens to be the first time in more than three decades that Cone Mills have produced a new loomstate unsanforized fabric.
The fabric looks a grey-ish initially, and appears to be slightly streaky. However, following a rinse and a little bit of wear, the streakiness fades into a more rich and classic indigo as the slubby fill yarns wear off slightly.
Straight from Self Edge’s product description – “Words don’t do these justice, never have a pair of jeans had so much life contained within them.”
