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 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.

with zip ups theres always a slight posibility you may be walking around with it open, looking like an idiot...with buttons you'll never have that problem, unless you are an idiot

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

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.

what would you say is a similar fit to Nudies thin finns in the Imperial range?

are all lines from Imperial tapered??
