Japanese denim royalty The Flat Head just dropped a batch of one of its newest cuts, the D306. New cut, same old fantastic 14.5 oz. ‘Pioneer’ raw selvedge denim that we know and love. Woven on vintage shuttle looms and inspired by the studying of vintage selvedge denim, this fabric is revered for its gorgeous fading potential and nuanced texture.
The D306 is marketed as a ‘relax tapered’ or a slim tapered’ depending on the retailer (check our denim anatomy article for further info on these kinds of fit), but in reality, its a super slim jean with a slightly roomier thigh and top block for manoeuvrability. If you want a heavily tapered pair of jeans that will produce some high-contrast fades, these should be on your list. And, if you’re into shrink-to-fit denim, the unsanforized quality of the Pioneer denim deployed on these form-fitting jeans is callin’ your name.
Details on The Flat Head’s D306 model include a stamped metal button fly, TFH’s signature fancy back pocket arcuates, goatskin leather patch, hidden rivet back pocket reinforcement, orange selvedge ID, chainstitched waistband and hem, and much more for the astute eye to fall in love with.
Be sure to size up to anticipate roughly a full size of shrinkage on these, your mileage may vary in terms of the exact amount of shrinkage, so be sure to double-check that size chart or contact Corlection before adding a pair to your cart.
Available for $301 at Corlection.
