sorry for bringing hell into the imperial thread but,
1. What WS are you and what WS is the jeans, Luken?

2. how should i size on shearers or dukes if i want a slimstraight to slim nice fit with stacks? but not nasty jerking skinny. can someone give me quick like sizing, so when i go to the SE store i can just get what i want and try em on?

3. is it safe to have a normal everyday tailor taper your imperial denimzzz? because i dont know if dukes are gunna stack with its nontaperedness, cos i have a 31-33WS and the tape for that is like 8.

4. how long is black imperial take to fade n shit compared to indigo imperial?

5. is the indigo/black of imperial differ at all from brand (shearer, duke, king) or is it all the same wash/color of indigo/black?


I went true to size 30', i went to a real good tailor, to get mine hemmed etc,all black denim takes ages to fade compared to indigo, the imp denim is the same unless you get the new colabo

That is certainly not true. There are too many variables to say that that is the case. But yes, imperial's generic black denim fades slower than the indigo denim, but they dont really ever fade, so everything said so far gets undermined.

@goldengoose, are you sure they'll stack? im a 32-33WS which means itll be like 8.25-8.5" leg opening if i go true to size. 29-31ws is 7.75" though.

what did you hem it from and too, what height are you, and what did you taper it from, and to? if you dont mind me asking. it seems that you hemmed it so you could sag huh.

I have two pair of imperial dukes 30"
I am about 165cm tall
Blacks hemed to a 32"
indigo hemmed to a 36"
I ALWAYS sag
They fit great
Black fades way slower but there are some great faded blacks on sufu somewhere
Never had any crotch blowouts
I skateboard regularly

*dukes, shearers, kings have a standard 38" inseam

i think u should go for the waist 31, which is size 30 if i remember correctly

i have to make one correction to lukensteins post, i do not believe shearers have a 38 inseam
more like ~35
