The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

Anybody have post soak measurements of the 3008/380s in size 30 or 31? I am having a hard time comparing the various measurements around the 'net and want Post-soak numbers anyway.

Also if anybody has both these and Sam 5000s, how do they compare fit-wise? Is there as much hip flare with the Flat Heads?

Thanks

The F380 shrinks about 1.2" in the waist and 2.7" in the length after the first hot soak.

Thanks Kiya, as always you are quick and helpful.

But I was also looking for post-wash rise, knee, and hem (at 32in) measurements. Might be a stretch but its worth a try if some friendly soul has a pair.

Buying jeans that I can't try on is a pain, so measurements are the best I can hope for :(

how much does the 3001 stretch out in the waist and upper thigh

i purchased a pair from self edge in a size 34, and have been wearing them, i wasnt able to do up the button when i first put em on, now i can do the top up and sag them a bit

do they stretch out by about an inch? if they did they would fit PERFECT

i wanted to hear peoples opinions on the fact that flat heads (specifically 3001s) have a zipper fly as opposed to button....what are the pros of the zipper? dont button flys give better distression cause there is more stress at those points? really wish that fh were button fly.

I thought the same thing at first, but i quite got used to the zipper fly after a week or two. It had been years since i had worn jeans with a zipper, but i got used to it.

My gripper zipper makes me feel cool.

I really don't lose any sleep over the potential button fly fade I'm missing. I enjoy my nub fade on the 3001's quite nicely...

i really dont care about button flys. ok its more authentic yaddayadda but its pretty miniscule to me. i love not having to undo my belt and all my buttons whenever i have to piss (when im wearing the 310s)

^ haha im so used to wearing button-flys and having to undo my belt and top button everytime that i still do it automatically whenever im wearing my f310s.

also, to whoever was asking about the stretching, my size 32 originally came with a waist of 33 pre-soak. after a warm soak, it shrunk to a 32 but theyve now stretched to a 34.

You go for your true waist size?

Still waiting to move in on these ...

All jeans stretch like that in the waist, especially if you wear them a bit lower. It's not a big deal. It's probably because he has a 34" hip area where he might wear his jeans. That has happened to me with my PBJs too and pretty much every jean as they stretch to your hip measurements. Don't worry about it.

Most of that white is paint dust & tile dust.

I have no idea how much fading there is under that...I haven't seen them clean in a while.

Condom fade? That's from a yo-yo, fool! ;)

sidneylo, your 3001's surely look great, I'm stunned, I'm wondering how you get so nice fading.

Wore my pair for 5 months and they don't look anywhere near that good, been through one cold soak and two hot ones.

Also, I always think that 3001's and f310 fit alot slimmer on everyone, compared to me, what's up with that

Thanks qom. Again for reference, I'm 5'11, 128lbs, so kind of a stick... but I sized up one so I have a very ambiguous fit to mine--they do shrink a lot. I am lucky to be able to pull off slim fit with dressier pieces or a bit of slouch with casual streetwear.

My advice: when the girlfriend complains, just throw it in the wash...

I sized down one size, because I usually want to wear my jeans real slim.

I hardly see any honeycombs, beginning to think that they're "too baggy", well, gonna snap some pictures tomorrow hopefully, it's been awhile

You sized down one and think they are too baggy ? Jesus - do you really know your true waist ???

This would be the Flathead miracle

Measure 33" in the waist and went for a tagged 32"

Fit pics ?

If you have these already...

My estimate would be that tagged 32 shrinks to 31 ...

Thanks...

Judging by the fit pic on the bottom - I would have guessed that your are a 30-31 waist...

Which would explain why the 32's fit kind of loose....

I can hardly button them!!

If I soak them I have to wear them before they dry, else I won't be able to button at all
