I usually wear 34 x 32 so 36 x 30 is a stretch, but I can't lie, $50 for new imperials is something I couldn't pass up. I'm planning on taking the imperials and a pair of sugarcane's to self edge and see if I can get them both tapered at a discount. I might have to send them down to Denim Doctors in LA otherwise. If anybody's had experience with adjustments at either store I'd appreciate any recommendations, although this is probably the wrong thread for it.


SelfEdge only hems, I think.

dukes fit nicer or shearer?.

If you have thunder thighs and are looking for a skinny fit, Shearers are more tapered and have roomier thighs than dukes.

October 14, 2010 @ 01:09:04

Two things..
1. Why the hell did you even soak them? The denim is sanforized
2. The water you used was too hot, any piece of leather will burn and crack if you put it in extremely hot water.
October 20, 2010 @ 00:48:45
^ he wanted them to soften up and wanted to shrink a tad.. Also i soaked mine in some hot ass water and it didnt do that to the tab... Unless he wore em while they were still wet?

^ Super hot water + sun dry is not gonna be good for leather. Water in general isn't good for leather. At least that's what I've learned cycling.
October 20, 2010 @ 01:43:42
LOL holy shit @ that patch

It's all good. Live and learn. I'm sure the denim will still wear and evolve great despite the poor patch.

patch is just a couple months ahead;)
October 21, 2010 @ 23:36:43
yea i prefer jeans without the patch. feels out of place, it's just ornamental anyways.
