    The Flat Head

    They look great now. Yeah I'm 32 in IH and 33 in FH 3XXX, but after a few washes the FH are very snug, 34 would probably work better.... It keeps me honest though

    The Flat Head

    @mpukas @lee porter my 32 rfr004 are very very similar to my 33 FH3009: Both have been washed a fair bit, so the shrink is all gone. The RFR shrank less I think and stretch a tiny bit more, but not a lot. They are beautiful and @Danny @ Rivet & Hide will be spot on with sizing help. The denim has a amazing texture but is somehow still subtle. I'd love a 3005 fit in the same denim...

    Not sure if I just got lucky but the blue wabash is holding out for me so far. And fading nicely as well. Given how slow I am at fading the outsides, I might start wearing them inside out?

    I'm now in a regular autumn routine : wear jeans, walk dog, get muddy, wash... Luckily I made a last minute decision to change my requested hem from 81cm to 84cm, in case they kept shrinking. They did. They arrived dead on 84cm and are now 80... Which is perfect... But let's keep it there, eh?

    Mine are OW, machine washed twice at 30. I don't dare go higher temperature as I need to fit my waist stretching device (= my gut) back in When I was 14 or so I got a pair of second hand levis from a vintage store. Couldn't work out why the seam wouldn't stay on the side of my leg, figured they must have been seconds or rejects or something, so I chucked them :-) how times change...

    Me too... same size, same fading story, also washed this week, same stretch-shrink-stretch measurements... This thread would be a few pages shorter if we'd known about that stretch back in August, I think. Also my left leg twist is now about 80º, selvedge almost pointing forwards

    Pandemic Masks

    This one is from Dawson Denim. It's great. Lots of washes. Worn a couple of times weekly since early in the pandemic. I've modified it slightly, to make the elastic go round the back of my head, cos I've got daft ears and the straps make them stick out and I end up looking like a denim teacup. I'm claiming a bit of mask roping here

    Careful with the thighs though, there's not a huge amount of room there

    Mister Freedom

    Maybe it's a volume thing as well? Whatever, if it's worth it to you, that's where the value comes in. No way i can rationally explain to anyone else how my mf cowboy jacket is 10x better than a mall jacket* but I wouldn't trade * actually on reflection I think I probably can but the point still stands I think. Most of what we discuss here isn't objectively better, in terms of performance or longevity, than other clothing, so we're paying for provenance, or soul, or similar. Otherwise I guess we'd all just be wearing identical boiler suits and drinking soylent and so on.

    First proper coating of dust on these, after a week parked at my home desk. Been tidying the garage. This is good for two reasons 1. The garage has needed tidying for ages so I'm less likely to get a row from my wife 2. The jeans now look less like yet another brand new pair of jeans so I'm less likely to get a row from my wife
