The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

Thanks! I have samurais, IronHeart, strike gold, and Evisus but flathead is by far my favorite pair. The only complaint I have with this pair is the low back rise.

How many months of wear roughly? They look great.

Thanks. Worn for about 25 months. Mostly weekend wear though because I'm usually in a suit and tie Monday through Thursday.

hi guys - i really like the 3002 cut, i'm a 34 waist. saw in this thread and reddit that thighs shink - how significant is the shrinkage? i want the thighs to end up around 11.9 - 12.3 - would the 3002 in a 34 end up around there, or significantly less? tried to figure it out without posting but struggling by now. also searched on Okinawa and rakuten but a lot is in japenese and struggling to find anything that shows the Warehouse cuts (e.g. pics and measurements). they have them in a London store but its really hard to imagine how the final jeans look/fit due to shrinkage so trying to go off measured

ideal measurements (rough) - 34 natural waist

front rise: 11- 11.3

thigh: 11.9-12.3

back rise: 14.1- 14.4

Rivet and Hide will measure a pair for you before shipping them, Snake Oil Provisions will do the same. I think that is the safest route. 

The thighs on my 3001 stretched due to having pressure on them, but expect the entire leg to shrink half an inch with full shrinkage.

My pair (see above) is a size 38 3002. I'm a 36 TTS. After soaking and washing i list two inches in the waist from raw and half an inch throughout the thigh, knee, and hem. The jeans will continue to shrink after the first two washes before settling.

Guys, is anyone able to figure out the differences between models 3202Z and 3209Z? Both are available in Japan with - as far as I can tell - identical descriptions, but close-up shots of the respective tags confirm the existence of model numbers 3202 and 3209 as separate entities. Both are 20oz. denim, with zipper instead of buttons.

Sound like 20oz zipper versions of the 3002 and 3009 cuts respectively so if you can find the descriptions/measurements of those, that should give you an idea of the heavier versions.

Derp, don’t know why I assumed they are the same cut. For my defense, though, these 2 cuts do appear very similar, with mid-rise, room in the thighs, some taper (one more than the other).

Thanks!

We actually ordered quite a few pairs of these sneakers for our clients at Self Edge and we're getting them in the next week or two.

We're getting a good number of their flannels this winter, just got the black/navy houndstooth and getting 5 more in about 2 weeks. Not seeing a black/green one from my notes though.

Bought these 1001's back in 2008 or so (actually bought these one size up but fortuitously the SuFu legend beatle was looking to trade her 31 for my 32). I've mostly been wearing more vintage fits and denim lately but since I'm not sure when I'll be slim enough to wear these again, I decided to bust them out.

Pre-soak

I pretty much handwashed them in warm water without detergent, which helped to get most of the starch out. They are surprisingly pliable now compared to raw. I'm hoping that washing them like this will yield less contrast and subtler fades.The low rise will take some adjusting to but I'm pretty happy with how they fit, especially the final inseam length.

Those look really nice. Yeah, just wash a little more frequently than with other jeans if you want a less contrasted look.

My 3005s are probably going to wind up the least-contrasted pair of Flat Heads of all time. Because of how loose they fit there's practically no contrast fading at all on the lap, nor behind the knees, even after 70 days of wear. But I really like the fit and after two washes there's some nice texture and some vertical fading on the thighs.

What in the actual heck is this?

These have got to be fake, right? Or else a super early (way earlier than and previously seen model) of FH jeans, prior to the development of their signature denim?

It looks like a repro Levis style fabric.

Fun Fact: The first two season's jeans from Flat Head were actually produced by Sugar Cane using denim from the 1947 and 1955 jeans.

So are those in the link a pair of the Sugar Cane produced FHs then or something else?

Yeah I saw that one and I would pick it up but I’m looking for a black one.  That one is brown.  Thanks though.

That's not a Delraiser.  That's just the regular one Flat Head makes.

So I'm starting a tutoring company, and obviously I have to have a logo... so I'm making my logo, and looking for a kind of vintage feel for the typeface. I look through all the fonts on pages and settle on one I really like, just for a stylized "B". I then write out my name and notice that it looks verrrry familiar... so, I type out "The Flat Head" and, wouldn't you know it, but I chose the exact same font that Flat Head uses! For anyone wondering, it's "Brush Script MT", designed in 1942 by Robert E. Smith for American Type Founders.

      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

      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

      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction
