‘LA JOLLA’ draws inspiration from the preferred cut of the 1960s, with an overall tapered silhouette. The handmade process of creating each pair of Stevenson Overalls are symbolized through the features like the curved belt loops, back pockets and coin pockets, which are all crafted using the same single stitch flat felled seam method originally applied to denim production during the 1920s. Fabric: The denim fabric is exclusively produced for Stevenson Overalls on a vintage shuttle loom with Zimbabwe cotton. The unsanforized 14oz. selvedge denim has a rough and slubby character, with a subtle green color undertone.

Flat Head's best selling jean in Japan, the 3009 is their perfect straight leg fit. This cut is inbetween the 3001 and 3005, it's a straight leg cut on the modern side with a medium/low rise and a slight taper below the knee.

These jeans are made of unsanforized denim, when washed the denim will shrink 1" in the waist and 3" in the length (inseam). Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1" after approximately 30 wears.
I'm really into these pants but they would need to be hemmed for sure.. They are such a rad cut ... they just need to be cut off.
Tj is a little over 6 foot and 174 Lbs and wears a 32 in The Flat head.. we suggest sizing up a little bit in these if you plan to wear them raw and up a couple sizes if you intend to shrink em up.

We recommend our usual method of an original cold soak (30mn to 2 hours), occasional hand agitation, spin dry and hang dry. For the gritty, and for an extremely pleasant experience, wear the jeans while still slightly damp, walk around a bit to get them to shape, crease, and adapt to your body. Don’t sit in the white sofa or rub the walls. Hang to fully dry. They will be hard as a rock the next day, and, for yet another pleasant experience, try to put them on and walk… Good luck.
The 16.5 Oz. denim is pretty much sanforized, meaning it hardly noticeably shrinks. These Lot.64 “Election” jeans are true-to-size, meaning that if you are an actual measured waist 32 (wrap a cloth measuring tape around your waistline), you should get a size 32. For a slimmer seat, I went for a W31 on these, as opposed to my usual W32 in the Californian series.
Please refer to sizing chart for approximate raw/soaked measurements. Soaked = 30mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry (i.e. minimal shrinkage). If these measurements do not work for you, things won’t get better by boiling or hard-washing the jeans… You will just ruin your washing machine and aggravate your wife.
Wash your jeans when hygiene dictates and common sense prevails.
Machine wash inside out to avoid marbling. Due to the weight and stiffness of the 16.5Oz. denim, be very careful when laundering using a small home washing machine. Cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry. This denim croaks (bleeds) quite extensively, and will leave indigo blue stains on other pieces of clothing, furniture, car seats etc…
Patina will develop according to activities and frequency of wear.
