ROY at Self Edge





Friend and fellow (denim nut) Roy Slaper is now selling his self-made ROY jeans at Self Edge stores and online shop. Self-made is the term I am using to describe not the fact that the jeans make themselves but Roy himself makes every pair from fabric cutting, sewing, to pressing. It requires quite a bit of ingenuity to figure out how to set up his production process to be efficient enough for such an endeavor (producing enough jeans to support 3 stores, Self Edge online sales, and the upcoming ROY store in Oakland to be opened by appointment in 2011). It would be an understatement to say Roy knows what he is doing and has not sacrified quality. In fact from what I can see the quality has gone up as he puts more jeans under his belt.

Here is a quick look at the specifications:

-Fabric is White Oak Cone denim, pure indigo, no leg twist, high shrinkage
-RS01 model is slightly fuller cut, same the one he offered for a limited time through his website
-RN01 is a new model with a narrower leg and a lower rise
-New 11 oz twill pocketing cut on cross grain for balanced shrinkage effect resulting in bettering fit and comfort
-Shell stitched inside fly edge
-Price: $275














Big thanks to Roy for the bare-all pictures.

For anyone wondering if the product is worth the price I will put my name on the line here to say it is worth every penny.

Really great to see ROY showing up in stores. He's a great dude making great jeans. And now I'm verrrry curious about the slimmer pair.

Those look cheap, I just bought pair of Eternal jeans. The will fade much better than these cheesy 50's denim crap.

I really love the ethic behind Roy's work. His production is amazing, and I wish him all the best, whether it's continued niche work or J. Crew deals.

But it was funny to get the Self Edge newsletter today announcing the: SEXFHXRR10

(Self Edge x Flat Head x RingRing)

PS - Anyone know who Ring Ring is?

denim jeans tend to be highly durable. This mainly has to do with the toughness of the denim jeans material, and the stitches normally employed in putting the jeans together.
