Fade Friday – Naked & Famous x The Flat Head x Tate + Yoko (1.3 Years, Unknown Washes)

As some might remember, towards the end of 2011 Naked & Famous and Tate + Yoko teamed up with The Flat Head to create the FHXNFXTY denim. Limited to just 50 pairs, the collaborative denim utilized The Flat Head‘s famous 3XXX denim, a rope-dyed, unsanforized fabric weighing 14.5 oz and well known for its vertical fading.

Though tracking down a worn-in FHXNFXTYproved tricky, we were fortunate to have N&F‘s Bahzad Trinos send an update of his pair for at the 4 month mark and again one year later for today’s Fade Friday.


  • Name: FHXNFXTY – The Flat Head x Naked & Famous x Tate + Yoko
  • Weight: 14.5 oz.
  • Denim: Unsanforized 3XXX denim
  • Fit: Weird Guy (slim top block, medium rise, slim leg and slight taper)
  • Other details:
    • These jeans were made by The Flat Head using all Flat Head construction, hardware and fabric
    • The pockets for the first time feature stitching. It’s hard to tell initially because they’re tone-on-tone/hidden
    • Triple name vegetable tanned natural leather embossed patch with a custom design
    • Iron donut button, hidden iron (copper plated) rivets reinforcing backpockets, copper rivets elsewhere

    These look like really comfortable jeans! Wish I had a pair of these. I like the fading: the combs and the vertical fading look good to my eye.

    • cincinnatus

      Agreed. They look super comfortable. Nice to see a pair with this age and not giant gaping holes everywhere.

  • Kyle

    Really nice, these aren’t super contrasty but the overall color and texture is perfect. Flat Head denim never disappoints.

  • anonymous

    oh god, the texture and vertical fading is so orgasmic,
    and the fit, ahh ahhhh ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

  • Devan Prithipaul

    Very nice, the vertical fading is on point and knee fades are very appropriate. fit is perfect and combs are nicely defined. the back pocket (phone?) fade is a nice touch. It would have been nice to have a picture of the leather patch after 1.5 years but that doesnt take away from these fades. they are really very nice.

      cool story bro

  • lzwer

    I have these in size 36.. They aren’t particularly comfortable. The rise is ridiculously low and the thighs are tight. I wore them in the bath during the initial soak to make sure I’d be able to get into them again.

    They do look great faded, though.

    SO wish the second Flathead/N&F collabo had gone ahead *sigh*

  • Grandier

    the side-photo of the fade is really amazing. just look at that honeycombs on the back and front. and did my eye spot a well-made traintracks as well?

  • Jonny Pez

    I’m amazed at how much they’ve shrunk… turning into a very nice fit. Usually N&F jeans say they will shrink around 3%. How were these jeans washed? Hot water?

  • Senior Vincenzo

    You can really see how much the denim shrunk from the soak/washes by looking at the before and after picture. Is there a way to keep unsanforized denim from shrinking too much? because personally, I prefer the fit on the before picture because it looks like there more room in the thighs

  • SAFETYpin

    Fit in the seat seems a bit weird, I think I prefer something with a more vintage anti/fit similar to 501s. Beyond that complaint they look great, particularly the knee fades.
