Flat Head stopped production on the 4001BK slim cut black selvedge jean one year ago so that they can spend some time developing a new denim. After a year of testing different dye procedures they've found a denim that fades like indigo, but appears black. The new 4XXX denim by Flat Head is dyed with a mixture of indigo and low viscosity sulfur, then undergoes a sulfur-top dye post weave.

The denim is black and with time will fade how an indigo denim will fade with great high contrast contact fading and vertical falling.

The 4001BK is now available in-store and via our online store:

Im considering buying a pair. I need black denim. I was going to get A.P.C.'s or Dior but this seems like a better choice since it fades. There are only 20 pairs right now. I will wait to see if I can put this into rotation since I have the SEXI04's.

My F380s are painfully tight at the waist. Any way to loosen them up other than wearing them?

You can dip the waist in cold water and stretch them that way. That's how I did mine, and it worked fine.

^ Good luck these shrink quite a bit on the waist and don't stretch much.

^Nah, they stretch out a decent amount but it was a bad idea of him to size down (guessing that he did) and then to soak them.

I sized up one on these...

the waist only measured to tagged size (my actual size)...

they are hanging dry after a 3-4 hour soak in lukewarm water...

they don't appear to have shrunk much...

only the inseam is noticeably shorter...
