Kiya,  I was hoping this is when you would tell me you found an extra size 40 in the back room. :)

Restock of Flat Head Delraiser horsehide jacket should be in all stores in about 2 week!  It's the yearly run they make for all Self Edge stores.

Sneakers arrived!

Quick post-unpacking pictures to be uploaded tomorrow—in the meantime, hoping for some advice on sizing from those who got in on the last round. In particular: do these stretch much? I went with a 28, and the fit is very good out of the box. Being new to sneakers in general, I'm not sure whether I should take this as a good thing or a bad thing. Should I expect the fit to stay about the same, or widen out over the first bit of wear? Any advice appreciated. For reference, these are the SNK-01HS.

Thanks for the quick response. Good enough for me! Some quick unboxing photos for those interested:

They still come with double insoles, right? You can remove one of them if they feel too tight or if you want to wear some thick socks.

Good info, thanks. Haven't checked whether the insoles are removable or not, but I think I'd be more worried about the other direction—too much room, rather than too little. Anyway, been wearing them for two or three hours now and they're still feeling very comfortable, so that bodes well.

They look great! The uppers look pretty much identical to the ones I bought in 2013, though the front rubber around the toe of the shoe is a different texture than on mine.

My FH sneakers are still going strong over 5.5 years later, they've got some wear and tear but still look good and feel comfy.

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.

Kiya, I'm guessing all the work shirt flannels (non pearl flannels) have the cutaway collar this year. For some reason I can't get behind the look. Nice to see xxl's available in any case.

Long shot, but does anyone have measurements for a 6002W in 44?
Found one for a good price and might get it since I've lost some weight and I've always wanted this jacket badly.
And does the A natural/synthetic indigo mix denim shrink less than the Pioneer denim?

We got finally some sunshine after a month of gloominess so thought I post a little Flat Head costume play. These are Flat Head 3012 and the old wabash with the metal buttons (don't remember the product code). I've had the jeans in rotation for maybe 2,5 years but not nearly that much wear. People seem to think that the 3012 has too much taper but for me I think it works quite well on my 193cm frame. That said, they do feel really tapered after a month in Full Count 1101.

Looking good mate. That is still one of my favorite shirts. Unbelievable how well it holds its indigo.

Thanks! Indeed, it has seen a lot of use and many washes and yet it remains almost as dark as when brand new.

So after some searching I came across this 6002-A brand new with tags and decided to take a gamble as I've wanted this jacket for a very long time.
I knew the 44 would be a little small, but I think it'll be alright, I can button it up pretty easily and you can see quite bit of room in the back.
The front fit pic is a little misleading, the denim is so stiff so it doesn't drape very well.
The denim is nice, super stiff right now so hard to get an idea of fit. I'm definitely going to go easy with the soak.
But if it ends up too small I'll sell it because I got it for a very good price. :cool:

That jacket is a great find. 

Brand new and raw, nicely done. Wish they still offered just the straight forward type II and type III's like they made in the past.

I agree, really nice looking jacket, Broark! TFH really makes nice stuff; I have yet to include their denim in my stash - like I need more denim :)

@Broark - that is a great score! Beautiful jacket. Fit looks good, it looks like you've got a little rom for some shrinkage. If it shrinks too much and gets too small lemme know if you wanna move it...

Thanks everyone, definitely a risk given how small FH stuff runs but I couldn’t pass it up. Giving it a cold soak right now, hopefully it’ll be dry by tomorrow.

That’s what I was hoping for actually so that’s good news!

Fit pic after the soak, only soaked for about 30 minutes in room temperature water.
I'm also wearing a IH shirt and 3Sixteen tee underneath so I think I actually have enough room.
Denim is still super stiff, feels so much different than my TCB 50's jacket that's really soft and drapes well at this point.

I like the nice blue color, good fit.

The stitching really seems to pop on it which I also like. I've never felt the natural mix fabric.

I finally picked up my first pair of TFH jeans - 3202 20oz slim tapered f/ SE. I still love heavy denim, and I'm currently into the slimmer cuts, just 'cuz I can actually wear them. I have heavy denim f/ IH and Samurai, and these TFH 20oz although lightly are probably stiffer and burly than anything else I've ever handled! It's super dark, very irregular, sort of loose weave. Soaked and washed once, and even still it's the stiffest denim. I think this cut nails it for a slim taper - medium rise, not too tight thighs and not too much taper. Double row stitching at front and rear pockets is a great touch. TFH pockets are kinda how I always feared - tight and shallow pocket bags. 

I first got a pair of 33's, but thought they'd be too tight. Exchanged for 34's hoping they'd shrink a lot. Buy they didn't - only about an 1" in the waist. The 34's are too big so I'm trying to move them and I'll get another pair of 33's.

How'd you go about shrinking them? If it was in a bathtub or something similar, did you be sure to use hot water and agitate a lot? Only 1" of shrinkage in the waist sounds unusual. I've always been able to get a good 2" or so out of my jeans, although I've never had this particular denim.

Good stuff guys!

Im bummed... I preordered those new red leather sneakers in a 27.5, but I think I might need a 28. Anyone interested in buying, selling, or trading?

cold soaked for an hour; hot wash normal cycle about 1 1/2 hrs;  20 minute hot dryer. There should be no significant shrink left. I was very surprised they only shrank 1" in the waist. 

Fit pics in raw heavy denim are deceiving. The fit looks pretty good in pics but after washing I can just about pull them off of my hips when buttoned up

Are they running smaller than normal?  I ordered my usual size, hope I don't have any issues.

How does the 27.5 correlate to a Converse 70 size or fit wise? (roughly).
