The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

I wear a 40 and have a 33 waist so it’s funny that they fit me so well when considering usually the argument is that they taper so much so it’s not so good, and a 40 almost the smallest flat head size I see people wearing in the West. 

Also funny that I’m 185 5’10” yet can wear a small in ih shirts! Body type sure does make a huge difference.

Here’s another TFH shirt, this time in denim. That’s my favorite kind of Western.

nice fits on the native fabric shirts!

always liked to fabric of these shirts (especially, the green color-way), but couldn't make any of the cuts work for me.
I find the collar to look very off-putting on the hanger, e.g. low hanger-appeal.

Love the shirts mpukas, and awesome fit! I could wear a 46 if I just weighed about 50-70 pounds more :D

Got a pair of these that I'm going to pick up at the post office later.

Not sure when I will get around to wearing them, but I wanted the old arcs with no suede and a button fly so these fit the bill.

How does everyone care for/clean their rayon shirts?

I always thought they were dry clean only, but that is what Sun Surf recommends so I'm not sure. 

The new black FH rayon is a beauty.

Thats what I've heard too...would be a pain to have to dry clean.  

That shirt is beautiful, that's really why I'm asking.  

Your new 3005's look nice...glad to see they are doing the old arcs again.  Hope they do their other models too.

Thanks, I wish 2nd had better translations, but from what I gather it's a special run, and maybe just for them?

Inseam is 36 on the nose so definitely not designed for the western market I would say. After I wash them I'm expecting 32.5 ish which is good for me. 

All they need is a red tab now I suppose.

Nice pick-up! They don't have the twice sewn front pocket openings and back pockets, do they?

No, single stitching I believe from the description. I'm going to wash them this afternoon.

Post some measurements and a fit pic if you can.

Will do, they are drying now. One hot wash, the inseam shrank 3 inches, the waist two inches. I will post rest tomorrow when I can properly measure them.

Some measurements, and a very bad fit pick. No one is home and i have to get ready for work tomorrow, no regrets lol. They need a hem, aren't missing much from the knee down fit wise. I can't seem to find a good way to photograph my backside  (is that a good or bad thing?) Anyways...

Pre-Soak, Size 34

Waist - 34

Thigh (At Crotch) - 12.6 

Front Rise - 11 ish

Back Rise - 15.7 ish

Knee (13 inches down) - 10

Hem - 9.5

Inseam - 36

Post Soak (Wash)

Waist - 16
Front Rise - 10.5
Back Rise - 14.5
Thigh (At Crotch) - 12.25
Knee (13 inches down) - 9.5
Hem - 8.75
Inseam - 33

They are very comfortable. Tons of hip room, I'm tempted to wear and wash these like normal mall jeans.

Looking good!  Wear them well.  IMO, Flat Head jeans do very well with frequent washings.   Wear a few months then wash regularly.

yeah, they'll turn out nicely.. I have a couple of pairs of 3005s in a 34, but I.. uh, fill them out a bit more in the thigh area, shall we say. That fit will produce some classic FH fades.

Those look great, get them hemmed and you're good to go. It'll make the whole leg look a bit cleaner too. Definitely wash them a lot!

Washing also makes the legs look cleaner, even more so than hemming, allegedly.

Did anyone manage to try on the new Rider's Denim Jacket from the Flathead? (i.e. F -DJ004Z)

Looks promising, would love to hear some feedbacks on it

Overall it all suits me, I might know how you measure your waist and thighs?.

I read the article said 3002 shrink a lot, but also stretched quickly the original,

with size 33 then I know there will be 33.5 inches in the waist @@!

Waist was measured Self Edge way doubled.  Thigh was measured crotch seam out.  

The 3002 will shrink the same as all other pioneer denim.  Waist will stretch back to raw after a few wears.  If you wear a belt, it will stretch back as far as the belt will allow.

If your point of thigh measurement is the crotch (not under crotch) the result is 12.25 inches, it's too big for me.
Do you think I would go for the size 32 (with 32 inches in the waist, with the measurement of Self edge )
and it will stretch to 32.5 inches?      This is an example of how I measure my thighs in tanuki
