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. 

https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/2nd/item/fh-3005-s/

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.

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

      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).

      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
