Fit pics of my 1001s; 2.5 weeks in.




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


I think it looks fine. My friend recently bought a pair of 1001's and he got true size, but he has big thighs, no homo..

i've been eyeing on a pair of FH 1001 for weeks now. according to the sizing chart at selfedge.com, size 32 seems to fit me if i were to wear it the way it is without soaking. should i just get size 32 since i rarely wash/soak my jeans or should i size up/down?

this would be my 2nd pair of raw denim, coming over from a pair of Nudie Bootcut Ola size 31. for my Nudies, i size down one size since i was planning to stretch it out and now it's nice and comfortable. but after reading further about denim here, seems like some people like to soak them so it fits better? i'm confused by all these things, it's like "shrink to fit" vs. "stretch to fit". kiya? what's your input on this?

another question. what about hemming them? i'm 5'8'' tall and my Nudies length is 32 which is too long but seems like behind the knee, there are all these creases (honeycomb/fishnets) that makes it slightly shorter. so i think the length of those FH 1001 is definantely too long and how should i go about hemming them and considering that one day i might need to wash/soak?

sorry for so many questions.

Nope, those are the SE05BSP, very close to the 19cm fit though.

The Flat Head SE05BSP Slim Tapered Jean

We're happy to introduce Flat Head's newest cut, the SE05BSP. This jean is a slim tapered cut with a button fly. This is not to be confused with the SEXFH05, which was a modified 3001 cut. This is a completely new fit, not based on any previous models.

Indigo half-arcuates, button fly, 14.5oz Japanese Selvedge Denim, tapered leg, extra thick leather tag, and a slim fit round out this new jean from Flat Head.
With the SE05BSP the jean is perfect for those looking for a slim modern cut with a small leg opening.
These run about two sizes smaller than the rest of the Flat Head line-up, size up one or two sizes from your usual size depending on how slim you'd want them to be.

Check the online store for more information on the SE05BSP and more photos:

Self Edge x Flat Head Chambray Shirts & Loopwheel T-Shirts

For those unable to make it to the Flat Head party, we're putting up the exclusive items that are only available this one time.
The "Around the World" Loopwheel T-shirt and the Self Edge & Flat Head Kiryu Embroidered Chambray Shirt.

Great designs on both of the shirts thanks to the famous Aya from Flat Head, you might remember her from the party as the girl decked out in Flat Head running around translating for the men from Flat Head and Lightning.

Both of these shirts are limited to the initial number produced and will not be remade.
They're both now available in the online store, check the product pages for more information about both shirts and what "loopwheeling" is:

I agree, I don't think flat heads should be sagged from experience. Excet those new ones might look alright sagged.

I've been sagging my Flat Heads since day 1 and my honeycombz and whiskers are turning out fine. I don't know why sagging y'all are against sagging Flat Heads. They look fine sagged.

first, you guys are probably different sizes which makes the fit different

second, yours is 1001 and his are F380s, 2 completely different fits

third, he is sagging way below his ass cause the backpockets are pretty much flat and yours are just slouched as it looks on your fit
