You look so polite in your fit pics, yet you're increasingly acting rather snarky.

At least the pockets are made of genuine selvedge. That's gotta count for something.

Yes, I did hot soak the jeans for about an hour and hung dry them. Casey was right, as they did shrink a little bit to the 33 size. I think they fit PERFECT now. I'll post some pics tomorrow when I get home from work. myke

Absolutely right. That's the first thing I did with my new FHs. A good pair of scissors and tweezers will do it too if you take your time.

What is the benefit/purpose of doing that? Seriously.

so you can like, you know, stick it to the man! personally I just leave everything where it's supposed to be. It's part of the design, and if you're buying old school type stuff anyway I'd rather have hte 1/1000 person who recognizes that pattern ask me about them. if they're 7FAM's I might get rid of the stitching so i don't get every random person comment on them becuase that's not why i bought them.

Some people don't like how the Flat Head back pocket arcuates look. Those are the people suggesting that you remove them. No other benefit other than cosmetic, if that's how you feel about the arcs.

I personally feel ok with them on. Taking them off is just too nit picky if you ask me.

It's pretty simple.
If you keep the backpocket stitching, you're for Mubarak.
If you remove it, you're for freedom.

keep the arcs, nice pick with FH as it is one of the best in both fit and quality, ignore people saying you should have gotten rrl (rrl is nice but quality is nowhere near as good as what you got), and wear the hell out of them

Also janky hangs out with shaq so he gets a free pass at making special threads ok guys
