SEXIHXLSXA13 - Self Edge x Iron Heart x Leather Soul x Alden

  For the first time we've come together with another retail store to collaborate on a product. We've come together with Leather Soul to design a set of jeans and boots from two of our favorite brands which compliment each other in both design and fit.
  We've done a pair of jeans from Iron Heart using a new denim designed for this project and a pair of boots from Alden available in two colors.
  The Iron Heart jeans are a classic 5-pocket jean with a medium rise and a straight leg with a slight taper that's flattering above the knee all the way up the back, also there's very little taper so the jean looks great with boots. The jean is completely stitched together with dark indigo thread, so while being a 5-pocket jean made of an indigo denim it's easily dressed up because of the lack of contrast stitching. For the jean we had Iron Heart produce us the darkest denim they've made that's still indigo (blue) colored in a new 23oz weight, the denim is sanforized and therefore even due to it's heavy weight, it's still comfortable.
  This jean looks and feels amazing in person, Iron Heart nailed every aspect of the jean that we had requested to have made for us. The denim warp threads are so saturated with indigo dye that it's looking like a jean that will look amazing with some wear due to how the fabric will age over time.
  The boots are designed to be versatile in both comfort and utility but also are able to be dressed up or down easily due to the detail, leather, and sole choice.
  The Alden boot has a "faux" cap toe, a style Leather Soul has named the "conservation boot." This style was made in the 1940's when leather was scarce due to rationing and wartime shortages. Instead of a traditional cap toe, this "faux" cap toe style was used to give the look of a cap toe without using extra leather and the stitching is done by hand.
  The boot is made on Alden's Trubalance last, has a tan Goodyear rubber wedge sole, and is available in black regina calf leather or Horween natural Chromexcel.
  The Alden boots are available at Leather Soul Waikiki and Leather Soul Beverly Hills starting Saturday, February 18th. Orders via email are accepted by emailing Leather Soul through their website.
  The Iron Heart jeans will go on sale at all Self Edge stores at noon (local time) on Saturday, February 18th. The jeans will also go on sale at 9am (PST) the same day in our online store.
  Check the online store for a full spec list on the jeans, measurements, hi-res photos, and more.

Cut of the jeans in combo with the boots looks great. Cant wait to see those lucky enough to score either or both.

they did a great job on these.  grown & sexy for sure.  they really run that big for sanforized denim (just spied the size chart)?  oh well no worries (& really just rhetorical) as i will find out in a few days as i don't think i will be able to wait to get my mitts on these.

wtf, i might be a 33 in these ???

passing on the boots as i have (imho) hit the boot mother load with my current allstar line-up  :-X

There's just been too many ridiculously awesome releases from IH these past few months.  Oh how I wish I could drop the cash to pick up a pair of the jeans.  They look beautifully mature.
