Our collaboration with Flat Head is a reworking of the famous 3001/F310 jean.
We took what we think is a great slim cut jean, and tweaked it to create the perfect slim cut jean for us.
We reduced the leg opening of the jean so that there is more of a taper near the hem, increased the denim weight to 16oz, made it a button-fly enclosure, brought back half of the old arcuates with the forked tongue, all the stitching consists of Cotton-Poly Core thread, and the pocket bags are made of military grade olive herringbone fabric.
The new 16oz denim has the same amaz
ing fading properties as the 3XXX denim, but is heavier in weight and also a bit more rigid than it's lighter weight counterpart.
The SEXFH05 runs the sa
me in the waist as all other current model Flat Head jeans, they will shrink to +5" of tagged size in the waist. The way the jean was cut on the w
aist (the top block) no size will have a super tight waist, but the rest of the cut will remain quite slim. There's no need to have a painful first month or so with these jeans to attain a super slim look.
The SEXFH05 will be released on Saturday April 19th at 12:00 (PST) in-store and at 17:00 (PST) here in our online store.

also, to commemorate the jeans, i bought a new wallet to get a new wa llet fade in these. hopefully it'll last as long as the jeans do ^_^. it's a stainless steel wallet from stewart/stand.
