Very helpful! Thank you so much! Is there any information available on the 23oz RHT? Is it basically the same as the 21oz flagship denim just with more weight?


There will be but I can’t help you I’m afraid. It is a Self Edge exclusive denim, and as such unavailable from anyone but them. It is one of the few IH denims I don’t have personal experience with. You’ll find info on their site, and there may well be some reference to it on here. Try a forum search.

Most of the IH denims are RHT, but all are distinct, regardless of weight. The two heavy hitters (XHS at 25oz and the now defunt UHR at 23oz) while being a similar weight are entirely different from each other. I don’t think making a lighter or heavier version of an existing denim would interest Haraki-san. All materials are designed from first principles and have a specific end result in mind.

Again very helpful! Would be interesting to find out more about the Self Edge “Vision” behind that denim. Cheers!

SE asked for a heavier denim, all Haraki did was increase the weight of the weft.

The one defining characteristic of the SE 23oz would be the tightness of its weave. The non-overdyed fabric looks like a double indigo because the tightness makes the weft pretty much invisible. I imagine the overdyeing process only tightened it up further, making this a very warm jacket indeed.

I agree! It's indeed almost like a windbreaker. The dark color is what caught my interest in the first place. I am excited to see how it will fade over time. In terms of comfort, I have to say it is already quite smooth.

I really love this jacket! Sometimes I’m just starring at the fabric and it’s structure. As mentioned before the 23oz denim is really great to wear, it’s soft but also substantial. As promised by some friends recently my leather jackets get less attention;)
Attached some fit pics and details.

I am 6.6 feet, around 210 pound (200cm, 95kg), and wearing a size 46 (XXXL).

Received mine the other day. Stout piece of gear. Apparently it’s so good I’ve lost my head over it. Looking forward to breaking it in. "F49479DF-C376-451D-B743-42225DFC766D.jpeg""BDE841BB-F547-42A5-BB8D-69744D54017E.jpeg""6D56E66F-0C7E-4480-9E7F-4C7FE341E214.jpeg"

Ooo boy, these pictures are making me miss the one I owned. If I had sized correctly, I'd be wearing it too!

What is that jacket you're wearing under it? I'm always looking for inner layers/liners to extend my denim jacket wearing season...

That's actually nothing more than a vintage nylon vest I grabbed at thrift store. Does the job though.
