    The Flat Head

    FYI, I have the FH sneakers (from 2013, which I assume are the same size/pattern as the new ones) in size 28, and wear 11 in 70s Chucks. They both fit similarly. (Maybe slightly more toe room in the Chucks?)

    Samurai Jeans

    Yeah, a lot of those brands they used to carry like Samurai are available nowhere in North America (as far as I know.)

    They look great! The uppers look pretty much identical to the ones I bought in 2013, though the front rubber around the toe of the shoe is a different texture than on mine. My FH sneakers are still going strong over 5.5 years later, they've got some wear and tear but still look good and feel comfy.

    Mine didn't stretch or anything, so you should be fine.

    All the talk about stretching on the 1108 is interesting. My (one wash) ones don't feel like they've really stretched more than any other jeans I've worn - though the denim itself does feel somewhat stretchy.

    What in the actual heck is this? These have got to be fake, right? Or else a super early (way earlier than and previously seen model) of FH jeans, prior to the development of their signature denim? It looks like a repro Levis style fabric.

    Those look really nice. Yeah, just wash a little more frequently than with other jeans if you want a less contrasted look. My 3005s are probably going to wind up the least-contrasted pair of Flat Heads of all time. Because of how loose they fit there's practically no contrast fading at all on the lap, nor behind the knees, even after 70 days of wear. But I really like the fit and after two washes there's some nice texture and some vertical fading on the thighs.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    40 oz. is just silly. I'm with b_F, 13-15 oz is my preferred denim weight these days. I like being able to wear the same pair year round if I want, and I'm rarely hot or cold in medium weight denim.

    Conners Sewing Factory

    All interesting answers/info. Maybe I'll try a WWII model eventually?! All I know is that I have enough jeans to last me for half a decade without needing to buy any more, hah.

    I know CSF makes great stuff (aside from the silliness of the "One Piece Of Rock" name that, justifiably, nobody around here actually uses), but I don't really get the fascination with WWII jeans. Wouldn't a '47 (or pre-WWII) spec jean be considered "better" since it's not missing details like rivets, bar tack stitching, etc.? A '47 jean seems like the more "complete" model that you'd want to reproduce since it has all the rivets, a leather patch, etc. Is there some magical element of WWII jeans (maybe the dyeing process, or fit?) that I've somehow missed?

    RRL Rodeo Ralph Lauren

    It's mostly about how RRL is made in China, etc. vs. USA/Japan/Europe for other SOP brands. SOP doesn't appear to be exactly straightforward about where RRL comes from. I love RRL stuff and think it's great quality, so it's not a big deal for me, but it might be to others.

    Wow, those are looking awesome. Can't wait to see how they look with some more wear.

    Great fit, those look perfect.

    It looks pretty loose around the waist, if that's the case you could certainly size down. But it it's already snug in the top, you probably shouldn't.

    You can see pics of my FH sneakers a few pages back, owning them for 5.5+ years they've held up great.
