Self Edge x Imperial = SEXI23
With this new collaboration we've gotten together with Imperial, a brand we've been carrying since the day we opened, to create a slim tapered jean in a super low tension denim. This fabric has been made very slowly by a tiny mill run by only a few employees in Kojima (Okayama, Japan). The weaving speed of the loom was set to a very low speed; at this speed the loom was able to create approximately 23 yards of denim in a work day, enough for about a dozen jeans. This extremely slow speed yields a denim that is a bit abrasive at first and very breathable despite it's 16oz weight.
The indigo yarns were dipped ten times in a method which yields a deep indigo color on the warp threads yet the core has stayed bright white. This combined with the feel of the denim and the fit of the jean means that over time this will be a denim that yields a defined and high contrast fade with regular wear.
The SEXI23 jean has a medium rise and slim upper block that continues down to a slim tapered fit throughout the body of the jean. We wanted a jean that could be worn slim with a hefty denim that breathes for the warmer months.
The Imperial SEXI23 jean will go on sale at noon (local time) Saturday, June 7th at all four Self Edge stores. The jean will also go on sale in our online store at 9am (PST) the same day.
