The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

Don't know if anyone has tried lately, but as of Friday, the 23rd, 2ND no longer ships Flathead jeans to the USA by order of Flathead themselves.

xpost of the 3001's so far... it's hard to capture the detail... but there's a lot of beautiful things going on in the sunlight.

4 months; 1 soak 1 rain soak

they look fucking great sidney. to be honest though, i thought there would be a fair bit more contrast than that. those combs are stupidly tight though....gonna look great after a wash.

Yeah it's weird. I don't want to fuck with the photos too much, but in direct sunlight... the contrast is a bit more highlighted...very streaky and the vertical fade is more apparent in person... hard to capture unless it was a macro as the lines tend to blend together in a jpeg.

I'm sort of diliberating when to wash it... probably will hot wash it in the upcoming months...

Man, you need to make an example. Rip those to pieces and hang them outside your house. No other pair of hideous denim will enter your premises! :)

I've been eyeing these and the 3003xx. Would you say the cut is about the same on these too?

Edmond, you should have one pair in lighter denim for those hot days!

The cut is pretty much exactly the same, except the S5003 comes with a nice real punch through cinch. and it's the 5XXX denim...

Finally decided to give my baby a wash.

Flat Head 3003's, worn 3-4 months (who the fuck counts the days, anyway?), hot washed at the laundromat.

size up for the f310 and f380, true to size, or size down. I was thinking of sizing up since i don't expect them to shrink that much and i'm looking for a not so tight fit.

^pew, they shrink a good bit and are a bitch to stretch back out, i sized down 2 sizes from my natural waist (like i do for most of my jeans) for my 3001s and they ended up being too tight to look good/be comfortable. ive since sold them and ordered a new pair of 310s in my natural waist size. i get then saturday and ill have something up shortly after

      Strike Gold Indigo Loopwheeled Sweatshirt Jacket
      I only wore this a couple times and just did not find a place for it with everything else I have. It's a super heavy loop wheeled indigo dyed fleece. It's not garment dyed so it has a deep rich indigo color that will fade nicely with wear. It's tagged Medium but fits like an American small.

      Length: 27.9in

      Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often!  Willing to accept offers.
      1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
      This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
      Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
      Description from Himel's website: 
      "The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
      MEASUREMENTS: 
      P2P: 20" 
      Shoulders: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.5" 
      Back length: 26.5" 
      Front length: 24"

      2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/mcslLUs7SuOKnR9V2Rdf[/img]
      Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
      Measurements: 
      P2P: 21" 
      Shoulder: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.75" 
      Length: 25.75"
      3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/ePB7rWcfRrKeG75LT7SO[/img]
      Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
      These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
      4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:90/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/RINrxGgSFazJbCpUp1cI[/img]
      Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.
      Size: 40 (no such thing as S/M/L) 
      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5
      5. Evisu No. 2 Type I Jacket - $130 plus shipping

      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.

      Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
      Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly 
      Black cat's-eye buttons 
      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction 
      Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage 
      Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)
      Measurements direct from IH: 
      Shoulders    17.2 
      Length 27.8 
      PtP    21.5
