    3Sixteen - second glance.

    The stitching on this pair for some reason is very sloppy. Loose threads here and there on the ends and i'm worried they will come out with wear.


    I love my indigo SLs, but the gray STs I bought were also like this, loose threads all over the place. The hem on one leg came undone after a couple of days. The top block was also way bigger than on the SLs and a couple of hot soaks haven't really shrunk it enough.

    Hey Kiya,

    Do you still have stock on hand of the Loopwheeler plain T's?

    I want a stack of the really thick ones.

    Kiya,

    Just picked up one of the tan flathead leather bracelets in the NY store. Looks great, but it's just a little bit looser than I'd like. Any way to shrink it a little? I'm not sure if the tanning process constricts the leather.

    We've got almost every imaginable color available at the SF store by Flat Head, super thick and really well fitting with a triple stitched collar.
    Do you know your size?

    They're $70 each, not sure if we'll put them on the site, currently all we have is printed ones on the site.

    X-Posted from the Flat Head 3001 Thread on Superfuture

    Hey all..
    Just got back from Japan, wore the jeans for a couple of days, wore them half the day at the Inazuma festival (yes, i actually changed my outfit halfway through the day).

    Here's some shots of my Japanese associates..

    When two worlds collide, Benny of Take5 Jeans and myself...

    Some Japanese Self Edge fans wanting to take a picture (FH President on far right), they said "we like the jeans you make", i'm not sure if they know that we don't actually produce the jeans ourselves:

    Tomorrow i'll post a few pages out of the book which i modified and which'll be sent along with the jeans...

    I'm not sure what that shirt says, but the swastika was originally from Asia. It's a Buddhist symbol and you see it on maps all the time designating temples. Maybe he's a Buddhist...

    Trust me, i know this.
    But the swastika displayed as a square which is flat on top is the buddhist symbol, a swastika turned 30 degrees so that it's a point on the top is a reference to something completely different.
    Then again, that doesn't mean there aren't slight variations, but you don't see buddhist symbols turned 30 degrees like the one on his t-shirt.

    I'd pop that swastika wearing dude right in the face if I saw him in the street. What a retard.

    In that case i wouldn't travel to Japan, because he's definitely not the only one.
    I see one person a day with a swastika on their jacket/bag/tee in Tokyo.
