The Flat Head

@ryan123 Those look like they're the same material but one is a Work Shirt and one is a Western Shirt. Main differences there are pockets and yoke.and buttons (regular vs. snap). I think Westerns tend to be cut a little bit slimmer but I can't speak from experience w/ TFH because I only have workshirts of theirs.

tfh westerns have pretty aggressive taper in the body, not recommended for those with beer bellies. i don't mind sizing up to get them to fit in the body though i end up with loose-ish shoulders and sometimes sleeves that are a bit too long. they still look good not too sloppy since overall the cut it slim. just something to consider for those who like their shoulder and sleeves to fit perfect.

Hi, I'm looking at the 3012 fit. The rear rise seems much longer than normal. Does anyone know if this means extra room in the seat?

Thanks. My wife makes me wear those around the house. I love the jeans too. Flathead denim shows some serious character.

Just received a couple TFH shirts from e2nd. Sharing the measurement in the hope that will be useful to someone here. This is as-received (so one-washed):

Denim cowboy shirt, 7001WR size 42: shoulders: 19.75, p2p: 21.6, waist: 19.75, length: 28.25, sleeve: 23.5

(If this doesn't shrink further, it has the potential of becoming my favorite shirt. The details are great. I was focused on the p2p and shoulder measurement and missed the fact that it keeps on tapering. The waist is limit.)

Red chambray work shirt, 7116WR size 42: shoulders: 20, p2p: 21.5, waist: 20.5, length: 28.75, sleeve: 24.75

@JDelage - thnx for posting pics and measurements. Questions about your method - where are you measuring the waist? At the smallest width, and are you doing a second measurement at the bottom width/opening? 

 

My hunch has always been that I'd need a 44 in TFH, and your measurements confirm that. I find it interesting how much taper they have compared to shoulder width. Post some fit pics when u get a chance. Thnx!

I tried to find the spot where the shirt was at its most narrow but you are right that I should add a shirt opening measurement. Yes, the denim shirt tapers a lot more than I expected. I knew about the shoulder-vs-p2p peculiarities, but the waist surprised me. It should be OK as long as I don't gain any weight. Note that those are both WR (somewhat westernized). The standard W version would not have fit me in 42.

If it's of any interest I've got the similar f-ds001 in size 42wide with the following measurements: shoulders: 20.5, p2p: 23.7, waist: 20.8, opening: 21.7, length: 28, sleeve: 25.6. The shirt is one-washed, haven't washed/soaked it yet to see, if there's more shrinkage to be had.

Edit: added a pic, sorry for the shitty pic quality

Great shirts JDelage, I have the 7002 denim shirt and love it after almost two years of owning / five months of wearing. I actually prefer the styling of the 7001, but the 7002's unsanforized denim seems a little nicer to me. For some reason the 7001's sleeves are a lot shorter too, which doesn't work for me.

I'm skinny and wear my denim shirt like a jacket over other tees/shirts 99% of the time, so the tapered waist isn't a problem for me. Really the only gripe I have about the fit is that the neck seems really loose for my size (40), meaning that if I button the thing up, it looks weird unless the top two buttons are undone. Pretty minor gripe though and not noticeable when wearing it open.

Here are some pics of the flathead store in shibuya during my trip to Japan last week. The staff was super cool but for one reason or another they did not have that many shirts in larger sizes so I only ended up getting 4 shirts. I guess flathead makes clothes for smaller people? Anyways is probably a good thing or else I wouldn't be able to control myself from spending more money

@JDelage - what are your thoughts on the fit? Overall I think it looks pretty good, but are the shoulders a bit big?

The shoulders are too big, but this is the best I can hope for in TFH. The shirt is fitted in the torso as it is. In IH I have the reverse problem: the torso is too big for my shoulder size.

Looks great to me, FH shirts fit like that in the shoulders on most people, so I think it's perfectly fine if it's a bit wider there.

      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.

      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5

      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/LrCQ4QAiTzavNJhhb1X6[/img]
      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.

      pit to pit 21.5 inches 
      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches 
      overall length 23 inches 
      shoulders 18.5 inches
      6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 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/uJmnA9JZQaNjDaYd8eZW[/img]
      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
