   "Japanese Selvedge Black (Iron Heart SBG) Denim (Non-Showing outer seam selvedge)
    21 Ounce Denim
    Zimbabwe Cotton
    Hidden Rivets
    Poly Thread Stitch
    Button Fly
    Super-Duper-Thick Leather Tag
    Slim Leg

The 8301s by Iron Heart is one of Iron Heart's flagship slim models with the silhouette designed by both Self Edge and Iron Heart; bringing their signature 21 ounce Super Black Fade-To-Gray selvedge denim to a slim cut jean. These are made with hand picked Zimbabwe Cotton that is known for it's unusually long fibers which give this denim a soft hand considering it's weight.

Iron Heart denim is known for it's ultra sheen and extreme durability due to it's heavy weight. Almost any other company attempting to produce denim this heavy would end up with a very stiff and rigid fabric, where as Iron Heart's denim is suprisingly pliable considering it's weight.

Disclaimer: These jeans are made of raw sanforized denim, when washed, the denim will shrink approximately .5" in length (inseam). Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1" after approximately 20 wears." - via Self Edge

Because of the pattern, a selvedge edge isn't possible on the 301 cut, but it is, technically speaking, still selvedge denim.

I know you guys know that, but I want to avoid any confusion by less experienced members.;)

For me, the visible selvedge is less of a deal breaker than the black patch to be honest. I love the 301 cut, but I'm more than likely gonna roll with the 634's in the 23oz denim.

I would love a 634 version for this denim. But I'm pretty sure we will get there one day.

Why is it impossible? Because of the jean pattern being too skinny?

It is a function of the skinniness/design of top block/how the cutting pattern was originally conceived.  The 666S and the 555S are both skinny and have selvage side seam, but this is because I mandated it...

Unfortunately, once a pattern is made, it seems like it's really hard to make any changes.  If I remember correctly, that's why the original 634S doesn't have belt loops sewn into the waistband.  They weren't done that way originally, and they've never been changed.  Several subsequent models with the same cut, however, have that detail, because they're new patterns.

(Giles will correct me if I'm wrong...;))

Yeah, that's what I assumed. I figured that, when the pattern was made, having a selvedge side seam wasn't all that important or maybe it was just more expensive.

Now, I feel like, since I live in a large city, the selvedge side seam is like having nice rims on a car or something. My clothes are part of my ride as I walk around haha.

As a brand new pair,  a black patch would look great.  But once SBG's fade to grey, the natural patch prevails IMO.
