Flat Heads!
 

I just bought a pair of "lightly used" Flat Head 3001's from a guy on StyleForum. I have been wanting a pair for so long. I am praying that they fit well and that they are in as good of condition as he says they are.

Jeff 10-22-2010 11:25 AM

congrats! how much were they?

ScoobaSteve 10-22-2010 02:32 PM

Only $125. They look pretty good in the pics. I'm so excited to get them. These have been the one pair I have wanted the most ever since I learned about raw denim.

It's 'The Flat Head' :twitch

Congratz on the purchase...it's a nice denim which fades fairly fast.

Jeff 10-22-2010 06:34 PM

WOW thats A NICE PRICE. even if you don't fit in them, you could probably sell them for more than what you paid for

Congrats! Flathead is way cool. :thumbsup

CONGRATS, my FHs are my favorite raw/dry pair I own.

ScoobaSteve 10-27-2010 03:38 PM

holy hell, how much do Flat Heads stretch? These are 34's and I can barely get them on? I wear 32 and 33 Nudies and 31 APCs. Why are these so god damn tight?

iirybackii 10-27-2010 04:00 PM

Both my 710's and 5110VXJ's were like that when I first got them but they stretched. My FH 3008's did too (perhaps a little too much...). Give it a little time.

lilcram 10-27-2010 04:11 PM

Mine are a 34 as well and i'm a TTS 32. I have worn them about 30 times and they haven't stretched dramatically for me which i'm happy about.

iirybackii 10-27-2010 04:29 PM

Yeah I went TTS on my FH's but am wondering if I should have sized down (not that I could have; the 3008 cut was hard to find to begin with).

lilcram 10-27-2010 04:54 PM

That's strange how they stretched so much for you. I feel every time I put mine one they feel close to the first time I wore them.

ScoobaSteve 10-27-2010 04:54 PM

I have been wearing them for 2 hours and they have stretched out to be much more comfortable everywhere except the waist. It's fine when standing but still a bit tight when sitting. If I dunk the waist band in (cool? warm? hot?) water and then put them back on (still wet) will that stretch them out any more than just continuing to wear them as I am right now?

iirybackii 10-27-2010 05:02 PM

You can, but honestly I'd give them a couple days if you haven't already. Besides, walking around with a wet waist can't be that comfortable.

ScoobaSteve 10-27-2010 05:20 PM

I just got them tonight when I got home from work. I'm just gonna keep wearing them I think unless you guys tell me they look like shit. I obviouslly need to get them hemmed

don't hem IMO

Jeff 10-27-2010 06:52 PM

Loooks great on you

ScoobaSteve 10-27-2010 07:03 PM

Really, don't hem them? These are probably 5 inches too long. I am only a 30 inch inseam.

Thanks, Jeff :)

lilcram 10-27-2010 07:26 PM

I think they look good and should be stacked.

You'll have some nice stacks in no time young squire.

VSwim09 10-27-2010 09:36 PM

Good job on the fit! IMO don't hem, the stacks are fine on those. My 710's are probably 3-5 inches too long also but look fine with the right pair of boots/shoes that allow them to sit close to your leg since the hem is so narrow. Hope your experience with TFH is as great as mine.

Ranchu 10-27-2010 10:38 PM

I would hem, or cuff...IMO stacking is for boys.
