Hey guys, I'm thinking of tapering my pair of imperial dukes in black 29. Ive had em for over a year now, but actual waer is probably only like 3-4 months MAX (probably less) There are next to no fades, but stacks have settled in.

Reason I want em hemmed is because I've been waering my APC NC and N&F weirdguys a lot and kind of like the tapered leg opening more than the straight leg from the dukes.


Do you guys think it'll still look ok/nice if I tapered them now? Or would it be a horrible idea since stacks have somewhat setted in?



hemming them won't help unless u only want less stacks. Tapering would make it better. I have a pair of indigo dukes and a pair of black kings, both tapered to 7 in. they look much better than before, u can search through the thread to find pics.

and aznballa, I have the same thing happening with my indigo dukes, it only happens when i sag too much, i suggest either sagging less or just wear it that way, once the denim is less rigid after a few months, it should be better.

Self Edge x Imperial = SEXI14

Imperial, our sole brand from Australia, comes back with another jean made for lovers of slim cuts. This is a further interpretation of the slim centimeter cut, this time tweaking the silhouette a bit to match up to the 18cm fit. This fit isn't necessarily slimmer than the last collaboration we did with Imperial, it's just a little different in it's shaping.

We've had Imperial produce this collaboration jean in Japan, whereas their regular jeans are made of Japanese fabrics but cut and sewn in Australia. The denim is a 15oz unsanforized selvedge fabric that's a super loose weave available in both indigo and black, both are sure to age very well considering the texture of the denim and the loomstate nature of the fabric. The denim was woven in Okayama and the jean was cut and sewn within minutes of the denim mill.
The denim has a very unique feel to it, it's abrasive at first but definitely not very rigid due to the lack of starch. The belt loops are rolled for sturdiness, the pack pockets are riveted, and the inside pocket bags are screened.

Thinking about copping the SEXI14's, I was wondering if I could get some help with the size. I'm usually 32 in most jeans, and looking at the measurements it seems like once they stretched they'd be perfect. I'm just concerned about shrinkage after doing a soak. Guys at SuFu seem to have been sizing TTS and they look decent. Also, does the unsanforzied denim require any special care that stuff like APC's wouldn't? Kinda a noob at this, any help would be appreciated.

Sup fellas, its been a minute since I've posted an update on my dukes. Recap: First wear was late fall of 2008 with very little wear until fall 2009. Since then i've washed these once and been wearing almost everyday. Crotch has been ripped and fixed. Picture quality isn't the greatest and the color representation is slightly off (for example, the area below the knees are a lot darker) but rest assured, these have not been edited etc. Will try to get better pictures soon.

Those need a hem. If they were a bit slimmer it probably would've looked fine.

The top half is fine but from the knee down it's looking kind of sloppy because of the stacks and big leg opening. With a taper it'd look better

Thinking of buying a used pair of Dukes.

But damn @ 38 inch inseam. I'm only 6'0; do most people have them hemmed? Or do they just stack for days?
