The Flat Head 3001

1,168 posts in this topic

This is my first post so hi to everyone. I did a few searches and most people seem to agree that most denim with zippers won't shrink much. My question is can I really wear these without a soak and still have proper fading when I do wash them? Does anyone have any experience with this model? TIA

they shrink 8-10% so you want to soak them before wearing them. You will lose the shine but no color.

I dont have a pair, but just like all other brands, they should fit like tag size. Measurements suggest this too.

Thanks jinx I soaked them and they did shrink a little but not as much as raw sugarcanes. It is a good thing as these are very slim fitting, but I think they will stretch into a good fit.

could you take some pictures of you wearing them, and some general pictures of the jeans too?

I've been interested in getting a pair for some time now, it would help me out a lot! :)

Are you using www.imageshack.us ?

Once you upload the photo, it gives you a bunch of links, including thumbnails for boards, links, etc. Just copy one of those and paste it here, or paste the image link between [i m g] [/i m g] these two tags (delete the spaces betweeen img).

How much did they shrink in length after you rinsed them? Before you rinsed, were they one wash or raw? Are they pretty narrow at the ankle, kinda like the New Standard? It's hard to tell in the pic.

They shrank about 2 inches in length or maybe less.

They were raw to begin with.

They are very narrow all the way down to the ankle.

Also they come in 36 length which is long for me.

a few first shots of me wearing these flatheads 3001. I promise to take some daylight pics later but these will give a pretty good idea how of their fit.

Special thanks to Horriblyjollyjinx for a few soaking tips.

That middle sentence sounded slightly worrying...

Here is some better photos of FH3001's taken inside Take 5 shop in Hong Kong. The flash has slightly distorted the colour of the jeans, in reality they are darker indigo with a twist of purple.

Thanks! I was there yesterday and got a scarlet belt by Dry Bones which I posted in Recent Purchases. They were also tempting me with PBJ AI-001 but I'd rather wait until next fall to get those.
