I say just keep them the way they are, they already have a taper to them, and the raw denim is what it was made to be and to fit the customer, otherwise you should of bought a different model if you wanted more of a taper.

I think your mistaken. Dukes dont have a taper at all. They are straight leg fit.


I believe they are all button fly. I personally like button fly, at first I didn't like it but I got used to it. The only thing that sucks is when you're in a rush to zip up your pants, it takes a little longer than just zipping it up.


I actually find buttons faster since my buttons holes are all loosened up, i can just pull and they all come off.

Just got my Dukes in the mail today.. my question is.. the fit is a bit too skin tight right now.. I'm thinking about putting them on eBay and getitng two sizes up.. should I wait instead till it adjusts to my body or is it useless?

Kinda want to sag it but since its so tight it wont let me =/

They're sanfordized, so shrinking and stretching is less that normal. They will still stretch but not as much as APC's. I sized down 1 on mine and 3 months in they still fit snug, just how I like them.

sanforizing doesnt have anything to do with stretching. apcs are sanforized too. i'm a size 30 true waist and bought a 29 in the black dukes and theyve stretched enough to wear however low i want to but i still dont need a belt.

Get a size 31, they might be tight at first but they'll stretch..

Can't go wrong with Imperials. Wish I started with it first instead of nudies.

I sized down one. I really can't wait to soak this at 6 months, i'm hoping they shrink in the leg area a little bit since I have the skinniest legs on planet earth.

Alright so i emailed self-edge and got some input from Kiya. He suggested a 31 after i told him i usually wear a 29 or 30 in Diesel. However, i confused myself and would rather not have to email him again since i wrote him about 4 emails total in the last 24 hours. So heres the deal: I measured my waist and im a 33. However, i usually only buy Diesel jeans, in a 30 sometimes 29. I decided to measure my favorite pair that i am the most comfortable in. The tag says 29, but i measured 34 around the waist. Basically, can someone please give me advice as to what size i should buy Dukes in please?
Thank you very much for any help and sorry if thats confusing at all.
