—01. Combed cotton twill outer.

Words

While the weather might be improving for a lot of us and certain types of clothing have become less of a priority, there are always those pieces that transcend the seasons, unlikely to be worn for months but offering an investment for the future. This Japanese-made, alpaca-lined flying jacket by Stevenson Overall Co., a brand that originally existed in the 1920s and now produces some fantastic reinterpretations of prominent vintage pieces, is just such an item.

—01. Unsanforized Japanese Selvedge Denim.

Words

For their 22nd collaboration with Iron Heart, Self Edge has produced a 20oz capsule collection in a limited run that includes two styles of jeans, and this superb heavyweight version of the classic 1960s Type III denim jacket. The weight of the fabric may be the most obvious characteristic, but the loomstate denim with grey weft yarns is sure to show some fantastic wear in years to come.

Self Edge Los Angeles

—01. 144 N. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles.

Words

Self Edge is one of my favorite stores in North America. They sell a very focused selection of high quality garments to an educated consumer. Kiya is a smart business man, a funny guy and a passionate retailer. I've had the pleasure of spending a little bit of time with him in the last couple years and it's been exciting to see how fast the Self Edge brand has grown. The most recent development is the opening of their Los Angeles location. The new shop features my favorite layout and space of the three and is situated right on North La Brea Avenue. I'm sure the store will be a success as Self Edge already has a strong market in LA, but it should be exciting to see the new products and brands the store brings in.

Hypebeast continue their push of online content with another interesting interview, this time with Self Edge’s Kiya Babzani. I feel like I’ve read a good handful of conversations with the retailer in the last few years, but he’s always working on something new and is just generally an interesting guy. The feature includes some nice photographs, good questions and light hearted answers – all worth checking out.
