The Flat Head

Waist bands are cut along the grain from a single piece of denim, is designed to allow a little stretch. The same can't be said of the leg of the jean. Even if you could get a clamp in there, you risk busting the outer seam of your jeans before you get any noticeable stretch. 

But you're right, the simplest option would be to buy jeans that fit in the first place.

Exactly!

I checked out @space_cowboy’s fit pic ... other than the waist,  the rest of the jeans seem draping well ... & he said he just need another inch past the initial [actual] waist measurement  ... so, IMO,  LHT Zimbabwe ... it’s doable.

.... versus, having to pack-it-up, resell @ a loss way below retail, then buy a size up or another model @retail ... he was willing to try:biggrin:

Waist stretcher also comes in handy if you've put on a few pounds since your last wearing. ;) Esp with a pair you're reluctant to part with.

Thanks BM & IH for a good, concise explanation of the benefits of the humble waist stretcher, reasons for employing one and how easily you can create your own, although a block of wood cut to size would be even cheaper! :D

Googie's is the name of a cafe owned by Flat Head, but confusingly enough it's totally distinct from their sub-label of the same name. The Googies label was Ivy-inspired stuff, with a slightly upscale aesthetic. It was more akin to RJB than Flat Head stuff. They had things like trousers, seersucker shirts, and sport jackets. I don't remember if they had their own jeans or not.

Thanks @Cold Summer, i found a few pairs in an ebay store going for cheap in small sizes(30, 31), but they don't have measurements.

Edit: found measurements for a size 30 with 68cm in the waist on yahoo, think I gotta pass on those :D

All the time but I only work at an office lol. But they’ve seen their fair share of physical work. I thought they would end up more blue with 10 washes but they still seem really dark. They may be going into semi retirement so I can focused on my Ooe yofukuten and SDA.

Bought a brand new pair of TFH 1002. Same tag size as my 3 year old 3002. The presoak measurements are virtually the same so uts going to be interesting to see how the post soak measurements compare

I'm a sucker for flat head pioneer denim and their embroidery. Absolutely fantastic.
