Flathead Advice

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Are they unsanforized? If so, how long do they need to soak? And does it need to be in cold or hot water? And major difference between the two?

Also, I'd like as little amount of contrast as possible (would basically like to retain most of the dark, original color), and was wondering how to achieve that.

Thanks!

Before we answer your first questions lets answer this one first...

If you want to keep the original color than don't wear them. Everytime you wear your jeans they will fade and lose its original color. That's what Raw jeans are supposed to do.

So instead of blowing $300 on Flatheads maybe you should look into washed jeans that are supposed to look raw. 88Z is an example that Diesel makes and its only $140.

But if your dead set on spending $300 on jeans that will do the opposite of what you want them to do then get back and we will answer your first questions...

They'll actually be doing exactly what I want them to do; what I'm trying to relay here is that I wish the process had some kind of stop button. I mean I want fading and I personally dig the knee creases and what not, I just don't want an extreme fade is all and was wondering if there's a way to simply (or maybe not so simply) stunt the growth.

This is basically one example of what I don't want:

ImageShack - Image Hosting :: extremefadezws6.jpg

Like I said, knee creases/fades and contrast fades wherever else is cool, but that shit above is just too much, IMO.

Also, I've tried on a pair of Flatheads before and love the way they fit, feel, look...shit, even smell - don't think I've run into/worn anything similar. Only thing I can think of that Diesel has that slightly resembles the feel and look of Flathead (or perhaps just RAW jeans in general) is 72D. I own 88Z and it is super thin denim - only looks (IMO) --slightly-- raw, doesn't feel like it one bit. Don't get me wrong, I love the wash, but it's not really comparable to the Flathead gear in any stretch of the imagination. Not to mention that the Flathead quality is (for the lack of a much more interesting juxtaposition of words) top notch. lol Plus, no natural fading with 88Z.

With that being said, unless you have recommendations for other raw pairs that fit, feel and look the same (...that aren't riding the $300 price line - with a Zatiny/Zathan-esqe leg opening that aren't Nudie), I'm pretty sure I'm going to wind up getting them. So any help with my original question would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help!

You're going to end up being unhappy if you want a pair of raw denim that have a Zatiny leg opening that are not Nudie.

Sorry dude.. Flathead is a bad choice for you. Just buy Nudies and rip the pocket stitching out for crying out loud.

What is up your ass, anyway? You've had an attitude since your first post:

"Just buy Nudies and rip the pocket stitching out for crying out loud."

Are you retarded? If you don't want to help, then don't. But to say some shit like the quote above is beyond idiotic.

Both Rakuten AND Kiya have them! So now that you've been been wrong twice, would you please take your infite wisdom elsewhere and let those who genuinely want to help and are knowledgeable enough to help actually do so?

I have helped you. I've told you that you're not gonna find something you'll be happy with based on your parameters that you, yourself, laid out.

Don't get so upset. It's just a jeans forum.

Right! Act like an ass, and then down play it when the person calls you out. At least be a man and stand up for what you believed in not but half an hour ago.

No, you haven't! Neither of my original questions have been answered. You're just riding this quote I made:

My point was, that if there are any other pairs (---beside--- the Flathead 3007's - which are bootcut), to let me know.

That "I, myself, laid out?" lol Dude, I've already found --exactly-- what I'm looking for! What will I "not find?"

Please explain in detail why they're a "bad choice." I'm dying to know.
