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.
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:
i'd like to see some 4001bk fit pics. i think zehero was rocking a pair in the wdywt and they looked awesome. im trying to find a new pair of denim to get and these look like a top contender.
