If you’ve been to Bender’s in the last decade, chances are real good Self Edge founders Kiya and Demitra were partying right next to you. Now, on the occasion of the Bender’s 10-year anniversary, they’re doing an official collab, and there it is in the pics, modeled by Bender’s co-founder Johnny Davis. Oh and there’s a party to celebrate its release…
Here’re some particulars:
Self Edge co-founders are paying tribute to the place they use as a second home by doing a limited edition t-shirt made by Flat Head. This Self Edge x Bender’s tee is heavy weight tubular knit t-shirt with a triple stitched collar and contrast stitching at the hem-line and arm-holes, fully made and printed in Japan.
To commemorate ten years of Bender’s and this collaborative Self Edge x Benders t-shirt, they are throwing a party at the bar this Thursday night from 7pm – 10pm. There will be Self Edge themed drink specials (Indigo Juice, beer & shot specials, and more), a rockin’ jukebox, a pool competition, and an end of a night, which you probably won’t remember.
The t-shirt will be released Thursday May 23rd at all Self Edge stores and online at www.selfedge.com. The same design in different colors on a Gildan tee will also be available at Bender’s on the same night. Tee modeled by the one and only Johnny Davis at the height of Twin Peaks. Self Edge will offer only 50 of The Flat Head tees made with loopwheeled heavyweight 100% cotton for $125, and Bender’s will offer 50 Gildan tees for $25, while supplies last.
Indigo Juice! Can’t wait!

It’s too early in the morning for my mental faculties to discern whether or not this is a joke, but according to the seller:
The rent is too high. You’re too educated to ignore that you’re part of the problem, but you’re not about to move. Find compromise in this high fashion accessory.
