    If I have a 35" chest what size should I wear in those, measurements seem pretty tight. Are they too big to be layered under a jacket?

    Hey Fuuma,
    Get a size 36 for a really slim fit or a 38 for a bit of breathing room.
    These are definitely not too big to be layered under a coat or jacket.

    Kiya, you going to restock the Flat Head Key Hook anytime soon?

    and what about the Flat Head double strand natural leather bracelet?

    Fuuma, I would definitely go with a 38 in FH shirts.

    Thanks Kiya and Ash, ordered a 38 in the blue one. Cheers [​IMG] Now that I've got a vintage Wrangler and this FlatHead on the way my flannel selection is getting better. I must say I usually prefer the ones with long hems for a sloppier look but one exception won't hurt.

    Picked up the same flannel in July and it's finally cool enough here so that I can debut it tonight! You won't be disappointed when you get it.

    I'm jealous. By time I was ready to drop that kind of money on a flannel, they were out of my size.

    Did you size up? I'm a 45 and got a 48 (see earlier posts). I hope it fits ok.

    Fear not, we're getting more this winter.

    I went with a 36 (TTS). It's really fitted, but that was what I was going for. I'll post a pic tonight.

    sounds right..I'm around a 38'' and went with 40

    The red version of the winter flannel is my favorite shirt and I'm looking to pick up something similar this winter

    Here's a few pics of the winter flannel. I definitely could have sized up to 38, but I really like the fit.

    Can't believe I'm wearing a flannel shirt to the Pearl Jam concert tonight - flashback to 1992. [​IMG]

    Got the shirt today, fits exactly like I wanted it to. I also had Kiya use a different shipping company due to personal preferences.

    Selfedge=very good service and great products.

    Thanks guys.

    Glad you like the shirt, it's one of the best flannels Flat Head has ever done, which is why we carried it in all three colors. [​IMG]

    Now I need a washed denim shirt, not raw but pale. Looked all over selfedge but didn't find what I wanted. Did I miss something? I'm not sure I wanna shop at the gap (they have one).

    We don't carry anything in super light colored denim except for a Sugar Cane light blue denim shirt, but we don't have your size. I'd look into RRL, they make amazing washed out denim shirts.

    I was looking on ebay yesterday and found one I really liked in my size, I'm just not sure I wanna be wearing anything Ralph Lauren. What would happen if I took a raw one and washed it three times in a row in warm water?

    You'd have to wash it with some acetate or a tiny bit of watered down bleach to get it light enough, but it's very possible.
