The Flat Head

I would get annoyed real quick with questions about my things  (or a banter like that). It's still really cool.

 The only other person that knows about the brands I enjoy is my girlfriend. Hoping to keep it that way. I've noticed people tend to ask "how much?" if they see something they like/don't know clothing wise. 

"You're wearing $545 in just jeans and a shirt? Are you crazy?! How much was that wallet?"...

 

I remember an interview with William Gibson where he said he avoids talking to people about price of the brands he likes like buzz and iron heart, because people get weird about price.

On another note, does anyone know what  2nd means by “previous preorders”? I think I’ve seen it discussed here before, but I’ve seen a lot of flat head items with that title and I just want to make sure they’re actually available and in stock or if it’s just a preorder.

@SmokeStackLightning I hate that shit too...if someone is actually just curious about something because theyre interested in potentially buying it im happy to discuss the price and explain it. If someone can just tell something is super nice and wants to know the price because they think it's a shitload, I hate that. 

Spend $500 a month on a car payment and no one bats an eye, spend $500 on a wallet and everyone loses their minds...

What's the thing @SuperJackle? Pretty sure that means it's in stock. Usually it says delivery 1-3 days if you translate the whole page.

Native print workshirt https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/2nd/item/fh-co-35w-bk/

Its been sold out for awhile and thus I’m a bit skeptical.

I think it's immediate delivery since if its a pre-order usually the site has a lot of comments about delays, estimated delivery 9 months, etc etc. 2nd has so much stock it wouldn't surprise me at all if they had that shirt.

Is it weird that I’m hesitant to rock a shirt with a plethora of native motifs for fear of cultural appropriation? I really like this shirt but I fear I might catch some shit for wearing it in this day and age as a heteronormative white male.

I wouldn’t care if I liked something. It seems that no matter what you do some one with an agenda will take it the wrong way anyhow. Political correctness has it’s place but when taken to extremes it says quite a lot about the person judging you

I rock my flat head native varsity like nobody’s business and haven’t gotten any comments on it although I have thought more about it in the past couple years...

but that particular shirt is really, really subtle. I mean come on.... not sure where you live but I doubt lost people would even notice the pattern. 

Just don’t go to Coachella in full headdress and you’re good...

Definitely a good concern to have, but I agree with @itsbenhere, the pattern is pretty small and I doubt anyone would even notice.

Hoping I get my 3001's back sometime this week. They are off for a hem. With all the brands and models I've gotten over the years, these are probably going to be my favorites once I get some age on them. After their first wash I'll probably wash them monthly and see what happens. 

I wish Flat Head still made more Native inspired pieces, they are normally some of the best stuff I think.

About 1.5 years of on and off wear. Still my favorite denim out of everything I've owned so far.

My Flat Head 7001.

Ive had this shirt for about a year and a half or so, and wore it pretty often for the first year or so, but then I grew to really dislike “western” shirt details on shirts, so it mostly sat in my closet for 6 months with only the occasionally wear. While unpacking after a move this last week I pulled it out and realised “hey! This thing is gorgeous!”.  I honestly did not realise that it had faded and evolved even this much, but im very pleased with wear it is right now

 

(Did my very best to make all of the colors and contrast in these photos, and it is pretty true with the exception of a few of the photos that were too bright and I couldnt manage to fix)

Seriously gorgeous! That’s how I feel about my type 2. Except I always liked it...  is the shirt tight in you? That’s one that I don’t think I could ever fit in and I usually don’t have a problem.

Nope! Not tight on me, it actually happens to be one of my best fitting shirts. I'll see if I can get a fit photo and check the size on the shirt at some point today

I have bought from them before. They are legit. I think they get their product from the actual flat head stores - stuff that doesn't sell. Don't quote me on that though

Thanks. Not sure why, but didn't see this response until now. Looks like I have a new flannel in my future…

How do FH standard work shirts fit compared to their Westerns? A 44 in their Western flannels fits me very well, but that's all I've tried on of theirs. Should I expect a 44 in their regular flannels to fit similarly? How about a Glory Park chambray—42, or 44?

I think you should get the same size in everything... the westerns will be slimmer, but everything is roughly the same size.

Get a 32 I think is my guess.

The 16oz denim doesn't shrink as much and will stretch where you need it to. Look up measurements of the 1002 from retailers using Google to help you. 

Good luck.

Another sizing question…How much wider are the Wide workshirts than the regular ones? If the chest of a regular 44 fits well (with maybe a little room to spare) but I want less shoulder room, is a 42R likely to be a viable option?

Nhận 32 tôi nghĩ là dự đoán của tôi.

Các denim 16oz không co lại nhiều và sẽ kéo dài nơi bạn cần nó. Tra cứu số đo của 1002 từ các nhà bán lẻ sử dụng Google để giúp bạn. 

Chúc may mắn.

 

thank you, myself I want to go for size 32 but kyle (selfedge)

says: i should go for size 33 because this pair shrinks a lot, and it is hard to stretch

 

I never thought I could go for size 33 @@!

      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.

      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

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

      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches

      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
