The Flat Head

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Let’s bump this thread with something I don’t think has ever been posted here: a custom Stockburg key holder.

I always loved the look of these things, but the high price (thanks to the giant, hand-carved silver concho) prevented me from buying one up until now. The quality of materials and construction is top notch, as you'd expect from Flat Head. Compared to earlier versions of these that I handled almost a decade ago when I worked for FH, this one has a high quality hook on it. This ought to age quite nicely with a bit of wear.

The jeans (my 3005XXX) are almost at 14 months of real wear time. I'll probably wash them next week and doubt I'll wear them again for a while, but I'll take some updated pictures before stashing them away for the future.

^ they are looking great.. instant nostalgia for my pairs, which I probably fit into again so should resurrect. I've actually got a 6002-A type II jacket coming in; for all I know it's @Broark's old one.. not too many of those floating around in a 44.. looks to be new, though, and Corlection (my local) did carry them a couple of years back

Copped FN3009 size 36, one wash, from 2nd. Been wanting a pair for years. Had copped size 34 previously, but were too small in this cut. This 36 is a little roomier than I prefer, and a 35 would be ideal if they made it. Still, I think this could be the best fitting pair I've ever had! I'm really impressed with how well they fit, and how comfortable they are, without being baggy. This is about as close to my ideal fit as I've had. And the denim - now I get it. These are the first pair of TFH jeans I own. I have a couple pairs of RJB, that use a different denim, which is amazing. I actually think I prefer this denim - it's their Pioneer Denim, yes? Just the right combo of soft hand, rigid, rugged, refined, textured, depth of color. 

But the front pockets are terrible. I knew they'd be bad, and they're actually even worse than I expected. The front belt loops are too far apart from the center line, and inside edge of the pockets is in large part determined by the placement of the belts loops. Also, the height of the waist band is rather short, and this affects the pocket openings. A tall belt cuts off the top part of the pocket opening. Little details like this could easily be addressed in the pattern, without changing the overall cut and aesthetic. Regardless, very happy with this pair!!!

Picked up my BSPs that have been sitting in SELA's window for the last 3 years (I think, man time flies). Though it was a good opportunity for some more pictures. Love how one of the buttons was coming out of its pressing a bit. I also love how the arcuate on the left pocket has actually gone, thread-wise, but the remnants of color are still there. originally I did start writing down Soaks and Washes but after a while, I was doing so many, didn't really matter. The chain stitching is "bloating" out of the waistband too.

That gradation from top to bottom is pretty wild. Nice.

Need some sizing advice. I’m looking to potentially proxy a pair of jdm flathead 3009 but after google translating the product description on the website it says that these jeans have already undergone a wash process? I thought all flathead jeans were non wash and unsanforized? At any rate does anyone know if I should I still be sizing based on the raw measurements I see on the Franklin and Poe, rivet and hide, self edge websites? Does anyone have experience buying a jdm pair and is sizing any different than the international markets?

My pair of 3009 from 2nd are one-wash. They shrink a little with a wash, and then stretch out. No significant shrinkage from when OW new. I usually wear a 34 in most pairs, but in this cut the 34 were very snug. I sized up to a 36, which are a bit loose. A 35 would be ideal for me, but not offered. 

I think it depends on the seller as to whether the jeans for sale are raw or OW. Just guessing, but unless a non-JP seller specifically states in the product listing they are either raw or OW, they're most likely OW. I think OW is a new direction for international sellers to minimize sizing errors/confusion.

My Flat Head 7001.

Ive had this shirt for about a year and a half or so, and wore it pretty often for the first year or so, but then I grew to really dislike “western” shirt details on shirts, so it mostly sat in my closet for 6 months with only the occasionally wear. While unpacking after a move this last week I pulled it out and realised “hey! This thing is gorgeous!”.  I honestly did not realise that it had faded and evolved even this much, but im very pleased with wear it is right now

 

(Did my very best to make all of the colors and contrast in these photos, and it is pretty true with the exception of a few of the photos that were too bright and I couldnt manage to fix)

Hey folks, does anyone have experience with the 18oz denim, or the 8XXX series? How does shrink and stretch compare to the 14oz 3XXX and 16oz 1XXX series? Thanks.

@cause4pause Had both the 8002 and the 3002 in a size 36 and for the most part, all the measurements were similar. The 8002 being heavier denim did shrink a tad more for me, but the fabric is still similar to the 14oz and stretched to what it was prior. I don't have either anymore so I can't really give you much update on how they are after a few years.

@cause4pause I have the 18oz 8002 size 34 from SE. LOVE TFH 18oz denim. It's so burly and intense. The cut is way too slim & tight for me, so I don't wear them. I have 3009 size 36 which is a much looser size and more comfortable fit on me. I've found the 14oz denim shrinks and stretches a bit more than the 18oz. Once the 18oz shrunk, it didn't stretch out quite as much as the 14oz does.

Sorry about getting back here late. Thanks for both of your comments and advise. I asked since there was a 8005 available locally. I thought these were a looser fit than the 8009 and 8002, but that thigh measurement really turned out far narrower than expected. Thinking I might need to view those and measure it myself. If they shrink anything like the 14oz then it also means the waist will probably lose 3 inches, which is not a deal breaker provided they come back with 2 inches or so of stretch.

I don't have, nor have tried on, the xx05 cut, but from what I've read here from other members and comparing measurements from various sites, the xx05 cut has slightly slimmer thighs than the xx09 cut.
