Fade Friday – The Flat Head 3001 World Tour, 4 Years

Flat Head 3001, 4 Years

For this week’s installment of Fade Friday, we wanted to give a special shout-out to the men and women of SuperFuture‘s Flat Head 3001 World Tour. Sponsored by denim shop specialists, Self Edge, this tour involves a single pair of Flat Head jeans that have spent the last 4 years being worn month-to-month by more than 30 different participants around the world.

Each and every month has been documented (some better than others) by the wearers both online and in a notebook that travels in the pocket. They have been worn all around the United States, Canada, Holland, Japan, China, Uganda and more. The results are breathtaking and stand as testament to the quality of Flat Head‘s garments.
