Thanks, really liking the fit so far but not sure what to do about either cuffing them or having them hemmed. I keep going back and forth on that.

I go cuff myself but total personal preference. If you do hem make sure you leave enough room for some shrinkage after your first wash. I am only a 30" length so I usually hem to 32" or so so I leave some room and can still cuff but removing some length helps remove excess material at the knee (which I think looks sloppy)

New Flat Head Shirts, Tees, and Jean & Accessory Restocks

From our favorite Japanese rockabilly rousers we've got a fresh delivery of shirts, tees, wallets, rings, jeans, horsehide jackets, and more.

By now we're sure you've seen the awesome t-shirt/sticker packs that we released with Florian Bertmer.
We've got a lot more from Flat Head to add to the mix.

First up we've received an indigo dyed shirt which has been discharge dyed with a paisley design, this shirt will fade and age over time just like a pair of jeans. We're sure this one is going to go quickly.

Next up is the Flat Head "Glory Park" Kasuri 5-D Acid Trip Short Sleeve. What is happening with the weave pattern of this shirt? We haven't seen a reproduction of the late 50's jacquard or dobby style shirt this crazy, ever.

Flat Head has become known for their Native Check fabrics over the past year or two, woven super slowly, lots of detail, and soft to the touch. They've now done this fabric in a short sleeve shirt and in a color we've never seen before.

We've also received a new "Glory Park" loopwheeled t-shirt with a nice "Speed Shop" design in discharged print. Go faster by wearing this tee.

Along with all these new items we've received a full restock of all Flat Head wallets, rings, bracelets, jeans, blank gray t-shirts, horsehide jackets, Wild Child wallet chains, and more. Everything is available now in-store and online.

momotaro vs iron heart vs flathead...who wins? what exactly are the major differences of each brand? i tried on all three today and iron heart definitely felt the thickest/most heavy-duty....they could practically stand on their own. i liked the momotaro but am not a fan of too much going on around the back pockets.
post #5615 of 5929
i tried on iron heart 666 today and love them...except it basically looked like my ass was as flat as a board...i guess it is, but i think the problem was definitely exacerbated maybe because the way the pockets are formed. it was selvedge denim, so maybe they would rise up and eventually fit well? it's a shame because they looked the best out of all i tried on from the front...probably the worst in the back. i'm slightly lanky but can't handle jeans that are too constrictive (on the thighs).

Get the Flat Head jean, it'll not only fit great but the denim will age better than anything else you've ever owned.
post #5617 of 5929
Thanks kiya. I'll look more into Flat Head. I guess there's no hope for me and the Iron heart IH-666L's ever fitting properly around the rear? I recently bought some Joe McCoy jeans...very western style...so I'm looking to get one more pair of quality jeans for the time being so I don't wear the Joe McCoy's out. The Iron Heart's fit awesome in front...not uncomfortably restrictive around the groin...only the pockets in the back were basically below my ass cheeks and you couldn't see any evidence of any ass whatsoever. Maybe that's why the Joe McCoy's worked out for me...being western jeans they tend to be tight in the back. I just really liked the material of the Iron Hearts. Heavy duty. That said, I haven't really researched Flat Head. I'll take a look.

3sixteen 30BSP, Shadow Selvedge, Double Black, & More

We've just received the long awaited restock of all 3sixteen's jeans including the 30BSP 3sixteen+ jean and all three fits of women's jeans.

First up we have a restock of the 30BSP Straight Tapered jean. Made of a hefty 15.5oz sanforized pure indigo dyed Japanese denim woven by Japan's Kuroki Mill and cut and sewn in America.
We get a near daily request for a fit that has room in the upper block but is fairly tapered below the knee. This jean is a combination of a straight leg jean and a tapered jean for the guy that wants (or needs) room in the upper block but also wants a small leg opening. The jean comes complete with hidden rivets, coin pocket selvedge, and the most mystical leather patch to have graced a product at our store.

We've also received a restock of the Shadow Selvedge denim from 3sixteen with an indigo warp and black weft. The denim was developed by 3sixteen and custom woven by Japan's Kuroki Mill. The Shadow Selvedge jean comes in both 3sixteen's signature straight and slim tapered fits. This denim will age over time with a super high contrast fade due to the fact that the jean starts dark yet the blue warp threads are rope dyed with indigo.

Next up we've got the Double Black denim jean, a black denim which has a black warp and weft for a very dark black look. This jean is stitched together with black thread and comes with a black dyed leather patch. The Double Black jeans are also available in both straight and slim tapered fits.

For women we've got a restock of 3sixteen+ jeans made of a great pure indigo dyed stretch selvedge denim woven by Cone's White Oak plant. The denim is made of American Supima cotton which is shipped to North Carolina to be spun into yarn then woven into denim by Cone Mills. These 3sixteen+ jeans for women come in a skinny fit, a straight slim fit, and a bootcut fit. All the jeans have a zipper fly and an embossed New York Dolls themed leather patch design.

Along with all these jeans we've received a full restock of all 3sixteen heavy leather belts and bracelets.

May get flamed for this as their seems to be quite a few people happy with Self Edge...
I bought three pair of denim from them online over a month period and have to say, my dealings with Kiya leave me thinking that Self Edge is only for those that don't mind being on the receiving end of arrogance and condescension. Won't be spending any more $ with Self Edge and will absolutely steer business to other dealers of denim...that's it. Nothing more to say.

Going to have to agree, conversing with Self Edge online was simply a bad experience.

If your going to bash someone at least bring a backstory or evidence or else no one is taking you seriously

Oddly enough i got so many aggressive emails from you over a 24 hour period that i was just waiting for a post like this to show up. I helped you repeatedly with sizing questions, exchanges, suggestions, and even bent the rules and let you mail a pair of jeans to one of our stores to get hemmed (when we don't normally accept mail-in hem orders). You asked for tracking for the mailed in hem order and i explained that i don't have tracking because it went to a store that rarely ships online orders and that the jean is being hemmed and will be sent back to you, then you flipped out on me about how terrible our customer service is. Its a two way road, just like a retailer should treat a customer with respect the customer should have the same respect for the person on the other end of the email chain.

So many aggressive emails? This is a bit misleading. I sent ONE where I directly said that your customer service sucks. You followed up with something along the lines of being beside yourself and that your customer service is beyond reproach (my word, your attitude). I responded after saying you come across as a d*&K at times in the forums suggesting that you attempt to step out of yourself and attempt to take a broader view that perhaps an issue does exist with the way your customers are sometimes treated.
Apparently, that's something you are either incapable of or simply choose not to do.
Being told on the phone by one of your employees that I should review sizing info online instead of calling the shop and "wasting his time" constitutes shitty service in my book. In fact, it's what took this from just substandard service to really pissing me off.
Also, not once have you helped with sizing questions via email. Must have me confused with someone else.
Your comments on tracking are also incorrect. Not once did you explain that it went to a shop that rarely ships online.
I enlisted the aid of my wife who has a far more level headed approach to life than I do and asked her opinion. After reading your emails her take was that they were curt, abrupt and showed a lack of courtesy normally given to customers. She was sort of knocked out by the phone interaction I had with your shop
Not going to continue to shit up this thread but if you are going to respond please try to be factual and not bend the truth.

I've always had a positive experience, both online and in-store. It's unfortunate that you had an experience bad enough to warrant never shopping there again. Fortunately for you, technology allows for a wide selection of retailers and you (both of you) never have to deal with each other again smile.gif
