The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

You know, I can probably make them work but Im just looking for a more comfy fit for this one. I think that it's roughly TTS and my foot might have just got a bit bigger in the past couple years, and its just weird moving up sizes so I didn't...

Imo it fits like a 9.5 in the 70s. Maybe a 9 but I haven't worn my 9 in a while. Not sure if I still have them...

Freaking awesome shoes though... they look and feel perfect!

FYI, I have the FH sneakers (from 2013, which I assume are the same size/pattern as the new ones) in size 28, and wear 11 in 70s Chucks. They both fit similarly. (Maybe slightly more toe room in the Chucks?)

9.5 is my size in Converse 70's. I could be interested if you ever decide to sell them.

I'm sure they are awesome.

Is anyone familiar with these? New with tags Flat Head 3005-AI, Japanese arcs. I can't find information anywhere. I got them from a guy in Japan off eBay. The color is great.

Those look sweet dude! Pretty sure they're a natural indigo mix. Should fade very similar to the regular flat head denim with a slightly different color.

Yes for sure an indigo mix. They are not the 15th Anniversary 3005-A (those had much different arcs) but I'm wondering if the fabric is the same. 

I am going to hem them before soaking/wearing. Will likely be awhile. I am assuming less shrink than the Pioneer denim.

Wash #7

Don't wear these that much anymore because it looks like the area above my knee is ready to blow out any day now..

Anyone know why SE's Delraiser has zippers in the back instead of buckles? Stylistic change or some kind of historical reference?

That started happening to my 3009 and shortly after they started to develop holes in them. Roll with it. It’s what the hip kids buy from the stores pre distressed.

I don't like holes in my jeans so I guess I'm not hip...

Cross post from the WAYWT thread. Wearing a flathead work shirt flannel and flathead 3009.

the 3009’s are maybe about 3 years old with a lot of washes. But in a rotation with a few other pairs.

There are few combinations more beautiful than raw denim and baseball.

I will, of course, be wearing my jeans when I go to Houston in April, no matter how hot it is :P

I wear my jeans all year round living in NYC. Never really been a shorts guy. I’m usually wearing a pair of roys or flatheads which aren’t too heavy and in fits that aren’t very constricting.

Great stuff Ben! Love how your jeans are looking in the car pic - I take it those are your RJBs?

I am hopefully going to Japan in fall 2020 with my brothers, I'm going to save up some cash for clothes shopping while I'm there :P Most likely I'm going to prioritize stores like Bears in Shimokitazawa that sell lots of brands, but I'm sure I'll hit up a FH store or two.

My youngest brother actually went to Japan with his wife about a year or so ago, they stopped by the FH store in Nagano city and said hey.

@itsbenhere Congrats on an awesome trip and thx for posting. Looks like a great time! And CONGRATS on the boots - pls post more in the boots thread!!! (those are grail boots for me, although I'll prolly never get a pair and even if I did not sure I would/could wear them very much...)

Thanks for the love guys!

@Cold Summer Yeah, those are my D105s. Super comfy as usual and I'm loving how the denim is coming along. Unfortunately, I do less walking nowadays, so they're not nearly as far along as they should be considering I've had them for about 2.5 years. That's awesome that you're going there! How long's it been since you were there last? Do your brothers like Flat Head/raw denim too? Also man are they lucky to have you. I forgot how difficult it was to do stuff in Japan when you speak 0 Japanese...

Thanks @mpukas! Will definitely post some more pics in the boot thread. They are grail boots for me too, and definitely much too expensive for what they are, but honestly after 5+ years without seeing engineer boots I liked nearly as much, I just bit the bullet. I'm very happy with that decision, though! They're super comfy and just have the perfect profile imo.

I haven't been back since I moved back to the US about five years ago. I'd love to visit more often, but plane tickets are expensive :P 

I've never really been able to get them into it. One wore a pair of Left Field Greasers I got him for his birthday back in 2012, but they're retired and filled with holes; he also wore my old 3009s until the pockets fell apart. These days both of them wear Uniqlo raw jeans and occasionally wash them but haven't gotten into more stuff on their own.

Gotcha. Yeah, I’ve tried to spread the gospel to a lot of people but ultimately it’s up to the individual to be interested in it and, unfortunately, not everyone is!

also, I’m about to blow your mind. Sign up for Scott’s Cheap Flights to get insane deals emailed to you. I flew to japan direct on American for about 500 round trip. Technically 350 because I booked using points from a credit card!

Wow, that's a great deal. I'll check it out. Part of my problem is that I live on the east coast so I have to fly across the whole country just to leave for Japan, which adds a lot to the cost.

I've been incredibly unsuccessful as a denim evangelist, I've blabbered about it probably dozens of times over the years, and I think only two people ever actually bought anything. Lots of folks are kinda interested, but not enough to pull the trigger on some jeans.
