Fade Friday – Flathead 3001 (10 Months, 1 Wash, 1 Soak)

Flathead 3001

This week’s Fade Friday features another well-worn piece from Flat Head & Co. submitted on our forum by Andy. This pair’s highlights including wonderfully evolving honeycombs and equally promising wear on the front and back side. The single soak and wash brought out some vivid details in the whiskers and around the knee area, while certainly still keeping the deep indigo color in the rest of the jean.

As one of their most popular fits from the Pioneer series, the Flat Head 3001 has a classic silhouette, possessing a slim cut with low rise and subtle taper from the top block down. Andy picked up his pair of jeans was purchased at one of Hong Kong’s finest denim shops, Take5.

    Lovely shades of blue, these will look even better in a month or 4.
    Could anybody tell me if the purplish cast is due to lightfall / flash photography or a property of the jeans?

      I am not sure if it applies to this one but you know the colour of Indigo is sometimes described as the last shade of blue before it turns into purple. So I’d say it is definitely possible to have such purplish casts from a pure indigo. The shade also depends on the level of reducing agent – lower level causes redish cast. Or you can achieve such effects with top dyes which is quite common today. It’s impossible to determine afterwards but that is what I guess. I like those, looking great!

    Nice whiskers and overall fadings and still plenty of life left in them. Rock them hard for another year and bring them back on another update with even stronger fades!
