    You can just order on rakuten and they’ll send you an email when they’re gonna ship

    The only thing that gives me pause on that fit is the butt area. Looks like you don’t even have one... not sure if all your jeans look like that, but if you have a BUNCH of room everywhere (and you have hot washed these) maybe a size down could better give you the fit you’re looking for.
  3. The Flat Head

    Yeah those are pretty spot on. 3005 right?
  4. The Flat Head

    I’m thinking I really want to pull the trigger on the red ones... those would look niiiiiccceeee with some crispy new jeans or khakis...

    Yes, indeed I am. That leather is just unbelievable looking. I would have bought that one instead of the RMC if the back looked like a traditional J24. That jacket is just unbelievable though! Super thick leather right? Even though it looks like it has so much character.

    Jesus.... that jacket is amazing!!!

    Damn, that shirts old as hell. Jeans still looking great! Cool that you finally got a pair that fits and also has the perfect amount of length!

    Holy shit, I really thought those were my jeans. Crazy how similar the whiskers are and the overall look. Those look great!

    I listen to gangster ass rap about killing people and selling drugs. I find it goes very well with my loopwheeled t shirts.

    Is the waist unbelievably loose? Because that’s a great fit!

    Lets see some shots of the denim!

    I prefer the sophisticated biker style as well. In addition to southern Californian leisure wear look

    Hey Kiya, How does the denim on the BSP-AIs differ from Flat Head's old 3005-A, if at all?
  14. Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    Thanks guys! I washed them a decent amount. Unfortunately, I couldn't tell you really how frequently it was because it was more irregular, but I'm sure more frequent than once a month. As usual, flat head and rjb denim responds very well to frequent washing! The main thing that I love about FH/RJB denim are the super bold streaks. I find that very unique compared to all denim brands, bold but not quite so ridiculous that it looks over-engineered.

    Those shoes look great too Kyle! I'd be interested to see if you find anything that could fix the black scuffs. I have the same thing on some white boat shoes that I really like. Would love if I could get them all white again... And, here's some updates for everybody... I've had these for approx 2 years and haven't worn any other jeans since then. Unfortunately, since I finished college, I haven't been walking around in jeans nearly as much as I used to so these are much less faded for the time I've had them than they would have been otherwise. I think they're still looking awesome though, and thanks to a great repair from Indigo Proof they'll be wearable for much longer. After a lot of familiarity with Flat Head jeans, there's a lot that I love about these RJBs that I first loved with the Flat Heads: Exaggerated, streaky fading Very crinkled looking back yoke Very prominently raised belt loops Low(er) rise Nice custom hardware On the other hand, there are some things I don't like as much compared to Flat Head jeans: The buttons. Flat Head uses iron buttons and I believe that these are zinc; either way, they don't feel as sturdy and the iron buttons look more "old world" to me The leather patch. I think I would've liked the regular Japan-style RJB patch, but these have one without much character, that doesn't age at all. The pocket bags don't have any imprinting on them Some details that are objectively nicer that I just don't prefer include the inner denim facing on the pocket openings and lined back pockets. The former holds up better than without it but I like the more thrashed look, and the latter make it a little harder to put stuff in the pockets. Overall though, I'm super happy with these jeans. For one, they look amazing, classic flat head but just a slightly different flavor of fading, just what I like. And they are COMFY! like the most comfy denim that I have ever felt/worn, I can't imagine anything better in that department. Also, this denim has a special place in my heart since it was the first one that I was really amazed by. Considering that it came out ~6 years ago in a cut that I bought, and fit me very poorly, I feel very fortunate to have been able to snag a pair that fits me really well. In the future, I'd like to try that new LHT Zimbabwe denim, but that might be a while down the line. Ok, now the pics...
