Self Edge, a store (mecca, actually) in San Francisco that imports Japanese jeans (Iron Heart, Sugar Cane, Flat Head) has received healthy coverage from the San Francisco Chronicle. We can expect to see a spike in interest in Japanese selvedge denim. Self Edge owner and fellow denim enthusiast, Kiya Babzani, is to be blamed for opening the flood gates. You can take it up with him at 714 Valencia Street. While you're there pick up one of the limited edition collabo Iron Heart jeans for me.
