    Nice looking jeans man! No matter how you wear and wash 'em, FH jeans look great after a lot of wear.
  2. The Flat Head

    Great looking jeans! The F310/3001 never goes out of style.
  3. The Flat Head

    They had a ton of those 4001SPs in stock when I worked at FH. Guess they finally sold them all to Pronto. Kind of a weird model. The black jeans have never been all that popular but those ones are an even harder sell with the bright red stitching and stuff. FH still has a great core range and the small curated collections that western stores like Self Edge and Rivet And Hide buy are always nice, but looking at their broader product range in Japan, it feels like they're either really unfocused or not sure what to do.

    Huh, interesting. I think this is a problem that's probably facing most amekaji brands as a whole. Their main clientele are older, and it's hard to continually expand domestically. Plus, many of those guys probably have full closets from years and years of buying, and given that most middle class Japanese work crazy hours at jobs with a dress code, they probably have limited time to wear what they do have, anyway. I'm curious if the Thai market has cooled down. FH was shipping insane amounts of stuff to Pronto in 2013 but I don't know if raw denim is a big deal like it was back then.

    This is the first I've even heard of Club Label, I must be really out of it. MK has been around a few years, everything I've seen from that one has been kinda redundant since it seems pretty similar to RJB. It's been a while since FH had a collection that really made me turn my head. I think Fall/Winter 2013 was the high point, so many classic shirts came out that year.
  6. The Flat Head

    That's a super old pair of 3001s, that patch/tab/arcuate hasn't been used in ten years.
  7. Dawson Denim

    Great info and writeup, Foxy, Dawson is a great brand that deserves more love. I feel that my Regular jeans are a little too loose on me, but I'd definitely be interested in trying their slim tapered fit at some point. I agree with you on the craftsmanship, it's super nice.
  8. Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    The new RJBs look great. I'm going to start lifting weights soon, so if/when I grow out of my current slim-fitting pairs, I'd be very tempted to pick these up!
  9. 3sixteen Jeans

    Very nice, those turned out great.
  10. The Flat Head

    LOL. Personally I've found FH tees to be pretty stale for a very long time now. Yet they seem to sell mountains of them in Japan and Thailand, no matter how silly or repetitive the graphics are. Flash, which shirt is that? Looks like a 7002W but I've never seen one with the hexagon buttons. Those are my favorite FH buttons, I wished they used them on more stuff (I'd love to have those on my 7002W.)
  11. Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    Watched the film the other day and loved it. Hah, I dig how it lists the guitar gear used on the soundtrack. The sort of thing that I find fascinating (and maybe, like, two other people on this forum, haha.)
  12. The Flat Head

    Great pics and writeup. The current Stockburg studio used to be the FH office, the area where you took pictures was the stock area until my last few months there. All the Stockburg people are super nice. How'd you guys get the VIP treatment? This is the kind of thing that visitors from FH dealers usually experience, haha. Man I miss Googies. Their food is great. Great pickups too, I love that rayon shirt.
  13. The Rite Stuff

    Not really interested in work shirts, but if y'all ever come up with some western shirts, this tall skinny guys is interested.
  14. How many pairs of jeans do you own?

    Here's what I currently own, from oldest to newest: Levis 510, Light Wash - bought in 2008. Worn frequently in 2008 and 2009. Not worn but once or twice between then and 2016. Now I wear these every now and then. Looks great with chelsea boots. Samurai S710xx - bought in May 2012. About seven months of real wear time, and two washes. After I get a 12 moths of wear in my current jeans, I'm going to focus on these and get them up to 12 months. 3Sixteen ST-120x - bought in December 2014. About 13 months of real wear time. I usually wear these with chelsea boots these days. Will continue wearing as my main pair in maybe a year or so. Nudie Thin Finn Back 2 Black - bought in August 2016. I wear these when I feel like wearing black jeans. Maybe about a month of wear? I wear them periodically. No real goal in mind for these. 3Sixteen RH15 - got these in about March of 2016, I think? These are my current main pair. They're at about six months of wear. Will keep wearing these most days until they get up to 12 months. Will probably put more wear in them a year or two later.
  15. Denim - Fiscal Sense Thread

    LOL, what is "MILT"? "Men In Leather Trousers?"
