The Flat Head F310....avatar style. (Last update: June 9.)







Got them in the mail today. Will soak after work!

Day one: March 5



Day four: March 8


Day nine: March 14








About a month: April 10










Lol, my poor hem. There was a rain + bar + converse incident. I did hot soak them again, mainly to shrink them up so they wouldn't look like fucking bootcuts.

Little under 2:






About three months:






I think I am going to have these hemmed up to get rid of the chew-ness and have them tapered in below the knee slightly so they don't fall down my fucking shoe.

I measure these at about 17" aligned pre-soak. Knowing this is what many of my jeans measure now, I'm in for sure trouble.

I hot soak for about 2 hours. These jeans are fucking THICK, I've got to say. They sat up by themselves in the tub!



I then followed jskidder's advice that if I needed to stretch the waist afterwards.... roll them up tightly in a towel and get some water out....

My towel... did not appreciate.



I measure them. 15.75" aligned. Holy shit. A new pair of Diesels for me is around 16.5" aligned. This is going to be PAINFUL.

After an hour of jumping around like an idiot, lying on the floor, swearing, and blue hands... SUCCESS! I BUTTONED THEM!



Have you ever worn cold, thick, clammy raw denim? With a vice around your waist? I've really never experienced something so uncomfortable! I'm going to wash my hands.

I like it wet down there.

And tight.

So why you soaked them?
Waist was too big?

I know it all worked out in the end, but you could have just stuck something in the waist to prevent that particular part from shrinking.

I too have felt the pain of wearing cold, wet denim when soaking my S5000VX the were too small in the waist presoak. The first 2 hours, I soaked with myself in them. Not fun.

I really wish I didn't have so much denim because I've been eyeing these for a while now. I may pick up a pair just to save for the future.

Also, post fit pics!

Dniceltr, he soaked because they are unsanforized.

NExt time just use books inside a plastic bag :P

Wearing soaked jeans while drying is a bitch... try just sitting in the tub next time, itll feel a bit more comfortable. I remember the (first and last) time I had to soak denim, it was my APCs.. that had some sort of resin or glue on the inside to make them stiff... I was peeling off glue from my body for a few days after that -.- oh and not to mention my underwear were blue... bathtub was blue, toilet was blue.... yeahhhh fun times

Too late now...but yea, put something in the waist while you soak to prevent it from shrinking too much, haha.

But damn, 15.75" aligned? I could wear that and a 30 waist.

The rule I've heard for Flat Head is Diesel Size + 3. I'm so glad I didn't get a 32!

Last night, they stretched to about 16.5" aligned.

The length shrank to 34". I am at work now, clearly not wearing jeans.

16.5?? Those would slip right off of me.

How you stretch it out almost 1" that quickly?!

Well, enjoy your new jeans

It involved a lot of pain and suffering and lying on the floor and swearing and blue hands.

These are severely cropped since I'm wearing random shit shirt that is 8234829348234 sizes too big. Had to lay down to button these today.

Looks like they'll stretch out nicely eventually.

Just got to fight it out! I'm sure your package will not be damaged in any way.
