Fade Friday - Flat Head 3001 (10 Months, 3 Washes)

This week’s Fade Friday brings us another appearance by Flat Head & Co., and, specifically, a pair of Model 3001 (check out our first Flat Head 3001 Fade Friday). This well faded pair, sent in by Andrew Richardson (Instagram Handle: @keepitstreet), was worn every day for 10 months while he worked at a food market; which can likely explain the quick fade development.

This pair is now in a sort of denim retirement as Andrew has moved on to a pair of 21 Oz. Iron Heart‘s & Samurai S5000 GX-LTD. We look forward to seeing pictures of these in the future!

Note: Do you have a denim that you think would be perfect for our Fade Friday? If so, feel free to send our way to info@rawrdenim.com!

    Looks like you sagged them.  The knee combs are nearly on the butt, and the stack fades go almost halfway up the leg!  Looks kind of strange, but good looking fades nonetheless

    Nice wear!

    Excellent fading patterns including great stacking pattern
    Would love to see their ongoing evolution over the next years!

    Just let them survive for ever. They deserve it!!!

    The raw denim pictures shown are the original version (old version) 3001, which has a simpler back pocket stitch; the 10 months old 3001 is the newer version which has fancier back pocket stitch. They might be from the same brand and with same cotton, but the details are slightly different.
