Over the Rainbow
This denim gets the tie-dye treatment
Beautifully restored Victorians, the Beat Museum, Hippie Hill--San Francisco loves to wax nostalgic.
But what if you could wear your pride for the city’s history on your legs? (Note: Do not, we repeat, do not buy those cheaply dyed leggings at Jammin on Haight.)
Self Edge, the Mission-based retailer known for its top-quality selvedge and Japanese denim, has jumped onto the history-loving bandwagon with a trip down memory lane.
Self Edge’s master tailor, Rain Delisle, tie-dyed ten pairs of the brand’s jeans using traditional Japanese shibori methods (it’s a process that uses stitching, twisting and compressing to create patterns) to give them that only-in-SF bohemian flair.
Available exclusively at Self Edge’s Valencia Street retail store, these extremely limited-edition tie-dyed jeans ($295) are the perfect complement to that flower in your hair.
But don’t worry if you're not one of the first ten people to buy a pair. You can still nab any of Self Edge’s other low-rise white cotton jeans--part of this same denim collaboration with NYC’s 3Sixteen.
