Having had a pair of SE Collaboration denim (Iron Heart's SeXIh01), I can say they are a denim shop that knows what they are doing. Those jeans were 21 oz rugged and heavy as hell and lasted a good 2 years with almost no signs of wear. I ended up selling them for what I paid after I lost some weight and outgrew them but perhaps I'll still post some pictures one of these days. Anyway, they recently opened up a new shop in NYC. Looks worth checking out if you're into real denim. Info here.
