Denial Denim : Animal Series 2010

Denial Denim is a Jogjakarta-based denim company that founded in early 2010. For their 2010 release, Denial Denim has chosen environment and animals as their inspiration.

"Animal Series #1. Denial Denim, a denim brand that have concern the environment, the theme of animal as form appreciation for the life of animals. Use animal product wisely! Save endangered animals!"

One thing that lost me is why do they use Wood and Leather material for a product that says "save environment and animals".
here is what they said about that :
"we just confirm why we still use wood and leather. our concept just remind other to back to nature and appreciate our enviroment. Utilize material from nature wisely.Wisely is defined as use of natural resources with responsibility and an appropriate portion, then natural ecosystems and animal populations are also not disturbed. Do not engage in illegal logging or poaching! Utilize of nature with responsibility, because nature and human beings need each other and profitable.

So, we just use WOOD RESIDUAL and leather residual from furniture industry in jepara also do selective logging system and use leather from stockbreeding.

then, what we do not disturb enviroment because we do in right way. Hopefully this reason can give a new perception about the themes that we picked up. Utilize from chemical like plastic can destroy the enviroment ASAP, so we just get something can be recycle. so, utilize from nature wisely isnt a violation.we also keep life of rare plants and endangered animals .stop global warming with your WISE behavior"

My final opinion is their products are awesome and the packaging is dope.

The Strike Gold : SG1101 & SG1105

"Hailing from Okayama, the denim capital of Japan, Strike Gold is a line created by the Hamamoto brothers with over twenty years of experience in the Japanese denim industry. Bringing simple styles with the utmost attention to detail to their jean line we're very excited to be offering this brand at Self Edge."

"This denim from Strike Gold has massive character even when raw with a lot of loom chatter visible from both the warp and weft sides of the denim. Due to the abrasive nature of the denim when raw the jean will age faster than most jeans and yield an extremely high contrast fade with normal wear.
Strike Gold has gone to the extent of getting custom rivets made which have a male part made of iron and a female piece made of copper. The reason for this is that the male piece will begin to rust over time but the female piece will darken and leaf over time giving the wearer a well rounded aging pattern even on the rivets. Crazy for some, essential for others."

The SG1105 jean is a slim leg fit that's got a medium rise and is slim from the top to the bottom but doesn't hug the calf.

The SG1101 jean is a straight leg fit with a flattering silhouette for all body types with a medium rise and a classic fit.

The Strike Gold SG1101 & SG1105 are available at Self Edge

Pivot Sleeve Shirt from Outlier

Outlier is a New York based company who focusing their products for biking wear but in a sharp & natty way. They Believe that the bicycle is the best form of urban transit for the 21st century, and their clothing is designed to make that fact even more true. A piece of clothing should work as well on a bicycle as it does on the subway or in a car, without shouting to the world "I'm a cyclist". Outlier is a clothing company first, not a cycling company. But they are a clothing company that designs simple, good looking and hard wearing garments for a world where bikes are a part of human daily life.

Well here, check out their Pivot sleeve shirt which tailor made for extra comfortness. They said that this is the solution, a completely reconstructed buttondown that retains the traditional look and feel of a dress shirt while working equally well both on and off the bicycle.

"From the front it looks like a well cut dress shirt. Like a good stage show, the magic takes place in back unseen by most. The underside of the pivot sleeve flows seamlessly into the back of the garment, creating an extra side panel. By removing the rear arm seam you can move your arm forward without restriction. It opens up a whole range of arm motion, move your arms forward or up and your shirt stays in place, cuff at the wrist, no cutting at the shoulders, your shirt tucked in properly. The extra side panel created by the pivot sleeve gives the shirt a strong form, the extra fluff found in most modern dress shirts is gone, this is how a shirt should fit."

For more details, just go to Outlier
