The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

Why is it that people are so paranoid to send their jeans to any normal tailor? What are the cons of this? I want to get my 1001's tapered but I really dont know what will happen if i send them to a local tailor rather than a professional tailor. Shed any light on tihs topic?

Thanks

The main reason is b/c most of the jeans that people send to SE or BiG to get hemmed are originally done with a chainstitch, and both these shops have vintage Union Special chainstitching machines. Regular tailors "usually" can't replicate the hem.

Ghostmeat: 3001s look good. I like the regular fitting 3001s when it's done right.

Ryan: great work on those 380s

Hmmm nice slippers but those 3001s look more like F380 to me. lol more of a straight fit from what I'm looking at.

the 3001s are a slim straight fit. I stayed true to size on my 3001s and they fit pretty loose.

Thanks. The slightly looser fit is actually intentional out of taste and necessity. I actually got these in Japan in Ueno and they only had a 31 and a 34 in stock and I had to go with the 34. Because, you know, I couldn't leave Japan without something.

Honestly, I could go a little tighter, yes. These have only been warm soaked for 30 minutes and line dried once, so I have a little room to play. I'm not totally in to the ultra slim fit. I'm old and can't pull it off with the rest of my wardrobe.

Nice fit daynym. Do you have any more pics? The Flathead site calls the 1005s "straight but reasonably loose." Those don't look loose. I tried a pair of 1001s but they were too slim but I looooove the denim. The 1005s might be the ones for me.

@ tama: nice fit man.

@ fashunhor: thx. It´s a size 33 (true to size). initial soak for 5 hours and a soak to tighten em up a bit for 1 hour in hot tap water... I would say it´s a wider straight cut. not too loose. very comfy... some more fit pics:

Hi Turntabloid,

Did you size up on the shirt and what is your usually size for other brands?

The back pockets look larger on the 1005 compared to the 1001s. Is this so?

that is correct!

not sure why (maybe kiya will comment), but the size 44s I got from DC4 are totally off the measurements I found so far (e.g. on SelfEdge and some Rakuten Shops).

body length is 28" (31.5" on SE) and sleeve length is 24" (26" on SE)

F310s worn for about a year and a half, mostly on weekends and camping trips, outdoors work - bought them to beat up, and that's what I've done. Impressed with how they're fading, considering how infrequently I wear them. Stacking is terrible cause they're usually cuffed

Those are the work wear style of the flannel shirts. The one self edge carries is the western style. The measurements (on self edge site) are for the western slyle ones, and the workwear ones tend to run shorter. This was the case with wabash shirts too.

D-Rizzle, thanks for your input, but I am referring to the SE measurements for the work wear flannel - see here:
