    The Flat Head

    Good question. I had spoke to him a couple times just messaging about this pair of denim but as far as his identity, I personally don't know who he is. I remember years ago, around the time this pair came out, a couple of folks that were more plugged in behind the scenes seemed to know who he was though. Is Warp And Weft a film or something? Gonna have to check it out

    The Strike Gold

    ^ Unfortunately, I bought the biggest size they had. Update to my sizing issue: I decided to wear them for a bit, to stretch them out as much as possible. I'll do the first cold soak about a month in (not worried about anything moving), but I've worn them everyday for about 10 days or so now. First couple were rough but not even 2 weeks in and I'm glad I stayed the course. They've stretched quite a bit already and fit great. This denim is crazy abrasive, already seeing that electric blue starting to come out in spots

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Thought about that but have never tried.. anybody have any luck with it? I feel like eventually they're gonna get so dirty that I'm gonna be forced to wash so its almost as if I'm delaying the inevitable.
  10. Anybody have a good technique for minimizing the shrinkage on the first soak of unsanforized denim? I have a new pair that fits perfect/tight as can get and there's really not much room to shrink.

    anybody know of a technique other than a cold soak to get the least amount of shrinkage out of a pair of unsanforized denim?

    The Strike Gold

    I purchased the Self Edge Strike Gold Wavy tapered and they fit perfectly... before a soak. Any suggestions on getting the minimum amount of shrinkage? Thinking a cold 30 minute will have to do. There's just no room to go any tighter so im thinking I'm gonna have to take whatever shrinkage I get, then wear em/stretch back out as much as possible

    The SEXFHXRR10 Thread

    If you're looking for all things SEXFHXRR10, you've come to the right place. I've seen some notable Sufuers state that these are some of the most interesting denim released recently. I think they are unlike any other pair that I own, and I believe such a unique pair is deserving of it's own thread. There were only 140 pairs released and I haven't seen much discussion from people that actually own a pair, so I will be updating this thread, as I wear them (until the AW contest). I'm about a month in thus far, and will be posting my first pics asap. I believe there is enough interest in these jeans, and with less notable pairs owning their own thread, it's only right that we have a place to discuss this collab, exclusively. Quick notes: Ring Ring told me that these were crazy hard to see through to completion. They had a lot of isssues with doing the back pockets and the single stitch that runs into the waistband, was a pain in the... He said Kiya was dilligent in NOT compromising the design and they worked for 2 years with Flat Head to see these come to fruition. For those wondering, RingRing has a pair but has not worn them yet. : ) (asked him because I was hoping to get RingRing evo pics..) Anybody that's copped, please post pics! mine are on the way..

    Been awhile!... I'll preface this by saying that I hope everybody is safe/sane out there. Haven't worn these in quite some time. I need to get some repair work done, in particular the back of 'em. At any rate, here are some pics.
