Just a quick heads up that there'll be a big Flat Head party at Self Edge on Sunday September 7th.

The president and vice president of Flat Head are both coming from Japan along with the editor of Lightning Magazine to Self Edge for a meet and greet.

Along with the party things that'll be happening at this fine event:
-Massive amounts of beer will be flowing
-Superfuture Elite will be present
-Self Edge x Flat Head Chambray Long Sleeve Shirts with custom embroidery
-Samples of upcoming product will also be on display with a few items available for pre-order
-A large selection of leather goods (wallets, belts, etc..) will be on display available for custom orders (this might be the only time to see these products in person and order them for a six week delivery)
-Sidney Lo's Flat Head 3001 WAYWT Exhibit will be on display including before/after jeans/shirts and the DVD of the progress

I'll be updating this post with more information as it comes in:

The Flat Head 1001 Slim Jean - 16oz Denim for The Heavyweights
It all started with the Flat Head 3001, a slim jean with a mid/low rise that turned out to be the best selling slim jean at Self Edge. The 3XXX denim on the 3001 was found to be spectacular for those looking for a great high contrast fading denim that looks great in just a few months of wear.

Flat Head has now taken the 3001 and made a 16oz heavy weight version with a button fly and slightly longer inseam.
We're predicting another long term hit by Flat Head here, as we've tested the newer 1XXX (16oz) denim and it's fading and aging just like it's 14.5oz counterpart.

We've also received a full restock of the Flat Head F380 and 4001BK jeans, and a special recut of the Short Sleeve Blue Diamond Shirts.
The new Flat Head 1001 16oz Slim Jean, F380, 4001BK, and Blue Diamond Shirts are now available in-store and in our online store. Check the 1001's product page in the online store for more photos and full specs.:

i really like the fit and almost anything about flathead f380s, except the vertical fade on them..a little extreme for me.

It's funny that you mention that because I was just about to ask when you were getting more 3001s. Got any pics of this new model? Can I preorder? I really cant wait for new denim. My edwin's need repairs. And i just really want new jeans.

Only three more weeks till I get my flatheads. Im either getting the 1001s or the f310s...I have to see if I like the heavier denim/fit* of the 1001s first.

*I know they are the same cut, but the longer inseam might make it a little different and what not.

Kiya, can you still return jeans to SE if they have been soaked already?

What do you guys think? I probably should've sized down 1, these stretched out A LOT.

I think those look great, they'll look even better once the denim in the upper block softens up a tad bit...

The Flat Head 3005 & Restocks

A new jean model from Flat Head has just come into the store...
The 3005 cut, which is a straight leg classic cut made of their famous 3XXX denim, now available from sizes 28 to 40.

Flat Head fine tunes their cuts into models that do exactly what they want them to. With the 3005 their aim was to introduce a classic straight leg fit jean for those that wanted a little more room in their jeans. The denim is Flat Head's famous 3XXXX which is known for it's intense fading properties including a nice vertical fade.

We also received a restock of the 1001 16oz Heavy Denim Slim Cut and the F310 14.5oz Slim Cut jeans.

These are now available in-store and in the online store, check the online store for more photos of the 3005, 1001, and F310:

You could just get the 3005 model we just got into stock, it's the same jean but with more thigh room and a slightly lower rise.
The thighs on FH jeans tend to shrink about .5" after a hot soak.
