After many years of a Roy drought at Self Edge his jeans are back at our stores.
This new release is a reworked version of his popular R01 model. The fabric on these jeans is a 13.5oz loomstate denim which Roy designed from the ground up. Cone did not have or could not produce the selvedge id thread color so Roy had another company manufacture just the single thread that goes through the selvedge line and had the thread shipped to Cone to use on his denim.
The warp yarns are made of a conventional American cotton while the weft is made of Supima cotton giving the fill threads an off-white cast. Supima is a longer staple cotton so we're thinking it will be less prone to stretching out and knee bagging. The fabric for the pocket bags were also custom designed and produced for this jean. They're an undyed (natural) ring-ring 3x1 twill that is loomstate and will be cut in a way where it shrinks with the jean. The pocket bags are a 10oz 3x1 cotton twill which is 100% ring spun, undyed, and unsanforized.
These jeans come with a vegan patch, freehand embroidered "Roy" and size number on the pocket bag, lined rear and coin pockets, solid copper rivets, mil-spec blackened brass buttons, and come in a straight leg cut with a little taper to the lower leg.

These jeans will go on sale at noon (local time) at all Self Edge stores on Friday, February 15th. They will also go on sale at 2pm PST on the same day in our online store.
