    The Flat Head

    It sounds like you might've benefitted from going up one more size. FH jeans tend to run very small for their tag sizes. On the plus side, if you otherwise like the fit, they shouldn't shrink anymore after your wash and soak. From experience working for Flat Head and being around a lot of people in their clothes in Japan, you'd be amazed at how small the average sizes are. I was the only person at the office who wore bigger than a size 38 in shirts (40 or 42 in my case.) And I'm quite thin. Most Japanese people in FH stuff seem to wear jeans between about 28 and 32, maybe 34. Very few bigger than that. So it's kind of tough for them to test that stuff out, there just aren't a lot of larger guys around to try on the prototypes, I guess.

    Great looking shirt. Yeah, that fabric has a very linen-like feel to it, but it's made out of cotton.

    The Strike Gold

    Those look great Radiohead89, I've been enjoying my SG denim jacket (though it's hanging in the closet until fall rolls around.) I'm usually not too crazy about super-textured crazy fabrics, but the 5109 wavy denim used on my jacket is pretty interesting, and has enough subtlety to it that I don't feel like its texture clashes with my other clothes (as is often the case with super heavy/textured denim.)

    I have a pair of soaked but unworn1101s (w/arcs and tab) in size 31 that's about 32" in the waist, I can put up some measurements later if you'd like. I'm actually looking to sell these because they're a little too loose on me.

    It looks like the new 1108 tapers from the knee down and is about 0.5" slimmer at the hem compared to the old model, which was more of a slim straight fit.

    None of FH's fits are too similar to the S710, but the 3009 is probably what you want.

    The denim looks really nice. It's clearly a different fabric than the old 20 oz. denim used on the 2111, which was pretty wooly and soft-feeling, not too unlike FH's standard denim.

    Show us your leather

    Wallet looks awesome Naoto! Glad to see you're still using it I wish I hadn't sold my Redmoon long wallet back in 2013 or so. It was the most functional wallet I've ever used. But since I'm no longer in Japan and just use cards for everything, my Monk Made bifold serves me just fine. Speaking of which, I've had that wallet for over half a year and ought to post some evo pics soon.

    These cutz don't heal

    I think my current daily jeans (Full Count 1108) probably have the best cut of any jeans I've worn. The only real change I'd make is to make the lower thigh maybe about 0.25" looser, but that's pretty minor.

    Those are looking great. Really nice texture, and they don't seem washed out or dad-jean colored at all.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Hard to argue with that, TCB could cost $50-100 more and they'd still be some of the best jeans out there.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    @wavehead You make a really interesting point. I would love to have a fairly affordable jeans option made from a fabric with a similar texture to, say, Full Count, which could be an unsanforized shrink-to-fit fabric that wasn't selvedge and had enough character to give some good fades, but nothing too crazy. (Obviously, a denim like Full Count makes is done with Zimbabwe cotton which is a bit more obscure/pricy, but you know what I mean.) If somebody figured out how to make a high-quality, affordable pair of jeans that omitted some of the obscure details (hidden rivets, etc.) that could be a better gateway option than the current Levi's STF or Unbranded stuff. Even better if you found a way to produce it ethically.

    Vintage Denim?

    Wow that jacket looks great. I'd get Indigo Proof to darn the holes, after that it's ready to rock.

    Vintage Denim?

    That jacket looks incredible. Those fades are what all true denim nerds strive for! The vintage jackets are so short because everybody wore their pants at grandpa-level back in the day. I like it. You just have to embrace your inner Trunks.

    It sounds like you might want the 1101 instead. It's pretty much the same as the 1108 from the knee down, but has more room in the top.
