And this one's for the true denim-heads out there. You already know that Self Edge is the go-to spot for super-duper-rare selvage denim, and now it looks like the beloved jeans shop has just acquired a tremendously hard-to-find chain-stitching machine, known as the Japanese-built Union Special 43200G. Believed to be the rarest of the rare, the machine was bought with a factory test-run denim piece still hanging from its teeth (denim freak-out alert!!!). Want to take in the old-yet-sort-of-new creation yourself? Self Edge is now showcasing the beauty in its shop and using it for extra-special in-house hemming services.
Self Edge, 714 Valencia Street (at 18th Street); 415-558-0658.
