    the denim used on the 3001 and the like doesn't really stretch that much. if i had to do it again, i'll buy a pair that's 1" larger than my actual measured waist size, and give it a good initial soak. the 3001 cut fits tight on the thighs anyway so a larger-than-usual size for you is still a safe bet (e.g. my case: 30w for apc ns, 31 for skull 5010, and should have been a 32 (or maybe even 33) for fh3001, as my 31 is tight.)

    +1

    I was lucky to try it on before buying, and actually ended up getting the one wash version at Bears in Tokyo and you're right about the sizing. I never wear a 33, but the 3001 in size 33 fit really well. I'm normally a 32 in LVC, 30 in APC NS, 29 Jean Shop/Edwin SEN, 30 in most Nudie, etc.

    Flat Head Jackets & Shirt - Limited Collection

    Every year Flat Head does a few items which they go over the top on and do a small run for just a few of their stores. This year we're carrying those limited items at Self Edge.
    We have two jackets and a button down white chambray shirt.

    The first jacket is a black wool varsity jacket. Flat Head does one varsity every year and in Japan they are among the most collectible items that Flat Head produces. Amazing quality on the woven wool outer and herringbone rayon liner, great fit, and top notch details.

    The second jacket is a wool and horsehide Perfecto style jacket. Flat Head takes a traditional Perfecto style jacket and does it in their black shuttle-loom woven wool and adds Scandinavian black horsehide accents. A great fit and a versatile jacket that can be worn two ways, both as a cafe racer style when zipped all the way up or as a tradition Perfecto style with the collars down. Quality is what can be expected from the Flat Head company, flavorful in every way.

    We've also received a limited production shirt from Flat Head combining their original buttons which they've started manufacturing in Japan in 2010, stitched using their newly acquired Union Special triple-stitch machine, and a newly developed selvedge white chambray fabric.

    All these items along with a full restock of the F310, F380, 4001BK, Women's Balder, and SE05BSP jeans are now available in the online store and all three Self Edge stores, we've also received a full restock of the leather & silver bracelets and cordovan card cases:

    New Shirts, Caps, & Wallets from Flat Head, Googies, & Stockburg

    Flat Head & Googies have just released a new set of shirts, all great for both warm and cold weather wear. These shirts are some of the most comfortable ones we stock, some even with brushed inners. Some Flat Head shirts now go up to size 46.

    In total we have five new Flat Head shirts and one new Googies shirt that is an almost three-dimensional looking seersucker in orange.
    Also a brand new Googies wallet is available in either tan or black. The wallet is made of a very supple cowhide that feels great and is lined on one side with pig-skin.

    We also received two different skull-caps from Flat Head, each made in two colors.

    Along with these new shirts, caps, and wallets we've also received a restock of the Wild Child Cordovan & Cowhide wallets which are also produced by Flat Head's Stockburg Leather division.

    All these items along with a full restock of the F310, F380, 4001BK, Women's Balder, and SE05BSP jeans are now available in the online store and all three Self Edge stores, we've also received a full restock of the white chambray limited shirts.

    i have a question about this jacket: http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=536

    you mention something about Diesel, did Iron Heart take the design from a Diesel jacket?


    Let me take a stab. Diesel is the name of Kiya's dog.

    New Flat Head tees.. so tasty. Triple-stitched collars, contrast stitching, loopwheeled body, super thick, super soft, and fits like a glove.

    I need to stop, i think i have about 35 to 40 FH tees now in my collection. My closet looks like a FH t-shirt sample sale.

    I've got a pair of 3001,it looks a little "spacious" when brand new,although its suppose to be slim fit,a little allowance at my waist.

    As its brand new its kinda rigid and tough. Should it be soaked initially or should I just wear it as it is now?

    If soak, how should I go about doing it?(Don't wana ruin the natural fading effect and hopefully it doesn't shrink too much)

    Any advice pls? [​IMG]

    at the Selfedge site, it looks like all flatheads are unsanforized, so your 3001s will shrink when soaked or washed. Do give them a hot soak before wearing them to get the shrinkage over with. This will not ruin the fades, as they will still be very dark and jeans still fade after you soak or wash them.

    edit: as to "how to," if you have a bathtub, run the water as hot as it will go, submerge the jeans, weight them down if you have to, leave them there an hour. air dry (I recommend pointing a fan at them if you have to dry them indoors.)

    should I actually go for a size bigger?the one that I have right now do feel little tight at the waist after trying it the 2nd time.Can't imagine if it shrinks later...

    I've tried a size bigger but felt that it looks too "spacious" and "baggy" (since it suppose to be slim fit) thats why I took my usual size...

    Flat Head & Real Japan Blues Summer Collections

    We've received a new selection of great new summer shirts, tees, and sneakers from Flat Head & Real Japan Blues.

    From Flat Head we've gotten in some of their new flatlock tees with contrast colored ribbing, a newly developed red chambray fabric shirt, a wild t-shirt with a collar, a two-button short sleeved henley, and a short sleeve pin-check shirt.
    Along with all these new shirts we finally got Flat Head's low-top sneakers, one of the only sneakers we've ever seen which are 100% made in Japan. In addition to the shirts and sneakers we received a full restock of all Flat Head jeans, bracelets, denim jackets, and hoodies.

    Real Japan Blues brings us a slew of new shirts including their Windowpane fabric in both gray and black. This shirt was available five years ago and we're glad they've redone it, the fabric is a blend of Hemp and Cotton and feels great on and looks amazing up close. Along with the Windowpane shirt we have a short sleeve shirt in a fabric only RJB can create, making the fabric was a two part process which was very labor intensive, something that not many mills would be willing on doing.
    Along with these shirts we've received a full restock of the 106BSP and 103BSP jeans.

    All these new items and jean restocks are available now at all three Self Edge stores and in our online store. The Flat Head sneakers are available at SENY only and in our online store. Check the online store for more photos, measurements, full spec lists, and more.
