Ever since day 1 of Denimhunters, Roy Slaper has been a “topic” we’ve wanted to write about, but we just never got around to it. This Cool Hunting video roughly sums up what there is to know about the eccentric one-man-denim-factory.
The guys begin the Self Edge shops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York are possibly the most focused, enthusiastic, and geeky denim heads in the business. At least if you leave out the Japanese. Their lastest top-of-the-shelf product comes from Roy Slaper, the one man jeansmaker who had a loomstate selvage denim fabric developed by Cone Mills’ White Oak plant – the first time they’ve done that in 60 years.
