    2.5" in length, .5" in the leg opening.... all shrinking and stretching info is found on each product page on our site.

    Is that .5 total? I mean if it starts 8.5/17 will it shrink to 8/16 or 8.25/16.5?

    Double Boomtime Winter Flannels from Flat Head

    Over two years ago when we met Mr. Kobayashi, the founder and president of Flat Head, for the first time he was wearing a shirt which we fell in love with instantly. We couldn't believe the quality of the fabric and how much character there was within the pattern of the flannel, it was this shirt he was wearing...

    From Flat Head's new Winter line, made of a heavy flannel comes these new super comfortable flannel shirts made of 100% Zimbabwe cotton where the interior of the shirt has been combed to a super soft feel.

    The fabric is woven on a vintage loom and therefore has a very three dimensional pattern due to the shuttle loom and also the heavy gauge of thread used to weave the flannel.

    The shirt is available in three colors, and are available only as one run with no restocks. All come with selvedge side seam accents and mother of pearl inlay snap buttons including the self edging fabric running up the inner seam of the front of the shirt.

    The Winter Flannel is modeled by Mission Badass Josh Harris and shot by Sidney Lo. Check the online store for hi-res photos, specs, and more information:

    Flat Head 2009 Winter Shirts, Flannels, Jackets, Bracelets, Lanyards, & BURGER CITY

    We've got a new shipment of some great items from Flat Head...

    The popular jacquard fabric has been made into a long sleeve western shirt, anybody that's seen this fabric in person understands why this is still the best selling Flat Head shirt in Japan. The fabric has been woven on a vintage punch-card jacquard loom which is owned by Flat Head; it takes hours setting up one machine to run a bolt of fabric but worth it once the end product is turned into such a unique shirting material.

    We've finally got Flat Head's take on a Hickory Stripe shirt..
    The fabric on the Hickory Stripe Shirt is a custom run that Flat Head had made for them under their Googies sub-brand. The pique cotton fabric is unique in that it's woven in such a way where there is a great deal of character for a hickory stripe pattern. The pockets are also something new for Flat Head with a zipper pull enclosure and a double placket pocket design.

    They've also brought us a new heavy flannel shirt... The Glory Park shirt is a great 60's gray flannel pattern that is a bit different than what Flat Head has done in the past.

    We've gotten a hold of a small number of a Type II 1950's Style Denim Jacket made of Flat Head's famous 3XXX denim, these are completely raw and shrink to size and they're also available down to women's sizes. The Type II is modeled by Superfuture's own Carl..

    Then there's the BURGER CITY pullover sweater with a zipper, we have nothing to say about this. We bought it because it says "BURGER CITY" on the front, and below it there's an address, that address is a San Francisco address a few blocks from Self Edge but the street name is misspelled. We love it, and it's being modeled by Sidney Lo's father.

    The Flat Head Special Edition Leather Chain with a Sterling Silver Feather is also back with a slightly bulked up design, these are sure to go quick and it takes us months to get a set of these made so restocks don't happen often.

    We're happy to announce that the popular bracelets we've been selling in-store made of cowhide leather and sterling silver are now available in our online store.

    All these items along with a full restock on ALL of Flat Head's jeans are now available in our online store, check the product pages in our online store for measurements, specs, and hi-res photos:

    Flat Head Spring Shirt Collection

    Five new shirts from Flat Head just arrived...

    Two new mini-herringbone shirts, a Black Mint Kasuri shirt, a hickory stripe workshirt, and a short sleeve Green Diamond shirt.

    With Flat Head's newest fabric, their take on a classic herringbone woven pattern comes as their newest offering this year. The fabric is soft and has a great character contained within the herringbone pattern, a simple classic shirt with a great fit; available in light black and mustard.

    The fabric on the Hickory Stripe Workshirt is a custom run that Flat Head originally had made for their Googies sub-brand. The pique cotton fabric is unique in that it's woven in such a way where there is a great deal of character for a hickory stripe pattern. This is a new style from Flat Head, the body of the shirt is a new fit and the pockets and the outside "Flat Head Union Made" tag is also new.

    With the Green Diamond one of the most popular short sleeve shirts we've ever had at the store is now available in a new color for spring.

    Flat Head's Black Mint division has a new shirt for spring, the Black Mint Kasuri shirt in white/black. You've got to see this shirt in person to fully understand what's going on with the weave and pattern design.

    All these shirts are only made once for the year, once sold out there are no restocks as usual.
    Check the online store for hi-res photos, specs, and more information on all five of these shirts:

    Flat Head Wabash Collection & Dual Ring Bracelets

    One of the items we were most excited about last fall when we saw what new fabrics Flat Head had worked on for 2009 was this wabash denim they showed us... Many companies do a wabash fabric and Flat Head has really impressed us with how well they've done their version.


    Flat Head has produced a soft and very wearable fabric that's been discharged with the micro-dot pattern that's commonly seen on wabash fabrics, definitely one of those rare shirts that must be seen in person to fully appreciate how great the fabric is. This is pure indigo dyed denim that's been washed once to get the shrinking out and also to soften it up a bit to make it easily wearable. A very comfortable shirt that will age very well, and will crock a bit at first due to the core dyed yarn using to produce the base denim.

    The wabash fabric is available in a snap button long sleeve shirt and also a vintage style coverall. Both come across as solid releases from Flat Head, we'd been waiting for the next perfect shirt that'd age well from them, this is it.

    Also from Flat Head we've gotten some solid bracelets made of cowhide, sterling silver rings, and a pig-skin lined inner, available in black or tan.

    Coverall modeled by kixslf, shirt modeled by Wesley Pipes, bracelets modeled by SidneyLo's wrists.

    We also received a small restock of some of the jeans from Flat Head, tan belts, tan woven leather wallet chains, black cordovan card cases, and the Hickory Stripe Workshirt:

    Flat Head 8005A Work-Jeans & New Summer Shirts

    Flat Head has just introduced their newest model in their jean line-up, the 8005A Work-Jean, made of their rarely used 13.75oz rope dyed selvedge denim. This is a welcome addition to the current Flat Head jean line-up as it widens the scope of what's available from them in terms of basic jean models.

    Along with the new 8005A jean we've received a great new Black Mint Woven Black Shirt that's a 50's style shirt with a very three dimensional weave pattern. Also in is a Red Picnic Short Sleeve shirt in a lightweight selvedge cotton material.

    Flat Head has also brought us three t-shirts, all loopwheeled. Â One is a printed black tee with a Vintage Bikers theme on a heavy weight loopwheeled material. Also up is the Native Flat Head Loopwheeled T-shirts in both black and white printed with discharge ink.

    We've also finally received a restock of the cordovan card case in tan and the Flat Head Feather Ring along with all the jean models available from Flat Head.
    All these items are now available in our online store:

    I know this thread hasn't seen much activity recently (likely all covered in the Self Edge thread), but I have Flat Head question:

    If I'm looking for the Flat Head cut that most resembles the KMW 1980, should I be looking at the 3005? The 3001 looks a touch slimmer, which won't work so well for me, and the F380 looks a touch roomier.

    Cheers for the input.

    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?

    I would shoot Kiya a message about this if I were you. I have the 3005 and I would say it fits closer to the KMW 2010, which I also have. I am just basing this off of measurements I have seen on the 1980 I have never owned them. Hope this helps.

    I've decided that I really love the way Flat Head does the chest on their shirts.

    Hows the stretching on the 1001s? I heard its a lot worse than the rest due to the heavier denim, should I go TTS?
