Self Edge, San Francisco's denim know- it -alls, has teamed up with Iron Heart to make a one of a kind pair of jeans. The jeans are built to withstand the extensive wear and stretching that jeans undergo while cycling. The jeans are built with a 21 oz denim made to endure the beatings dished out from the rider. The jeans go on sale November 21st but for anyone interested in purchasing them online the online release is December 21st.
Specific details written out by the Self Edge Blog:
"-21 ounce Sanforized Selvedge Japanese Denim
-Dark Indigo Stitch Half Arcuate Pocket Design
-Reinforced crotch rivet
-Crotch cross-stitch moved 1â€ forward to delay crotch blow-outs and for the comfort
of the rider
-Rear pockets placed .75â€ farther to the outside of the jeans to avoid sitting on
anything stored in the pockets
-Rear pockets sized to fit a mini U-Lock
-Higher rise in the back, lower rise in the front for maximum comfort and mobility
-Extra belt loops at the rear of the waistband to avoid torn loops from backpack
usage and to prevent the pulling down of the waistband if a belt is worn while riding
-Spring loaded clip metal key fob hanging from front belt loop
-Medium relaxed fit in the upper and thigh region, super slim fit below the knee"
