Fucking unreal! Those are sheer beauty.... they're fading so fast it's insane. I'd love to see how they look on you.

I'm really liking the look of imperials that people have been posting on here. I actually really like the backpocket stitching. Is it possible to pick up the slim ones (Dukes? Kings?) in raw anymore?

I can get up to LA if they have them there / order. Whatever.

Ya Serge, your imperials have been making me want a pair since you posted them after the first wash in a different thread. I'm still trying to decide on my 2nd pair of raws, got a couple months to decide, still wearing these RB11's...

right now I'm thinking Imperial Dukes (maybe even black? if those are accessible) some julian red cali no wash, and maybe the helmut classic cut raw selvage, seller has size 27, wondering if I can squeeze into those

and those nudies rnr are siiick

wow those imperials are amazing. They are australian right? Is the denim japanese or are they completely home grown?

The denim is from Japan and they are made in Australia. They are Dukes, which are slimmer than the Kings. They have graduated to "weekend jean" status. Next up are Lee 101B and Jean Shop Classics.

Does any body know how the LVC 47's fit in relation to the cane 47's? His hige's look very defined in relation to the ones on my canes but that may be just because mine are relatively loose.

BTW: they look great, keep up the good work.

I hope my canes turn out like that....thats exactly the sort of look im trying to achieve.

Judging by the pics of the LVC47 and SC47 i too think the LVC looks much tighter.

This is true... from my experience with both.

LVC 47s fit tighter in my experience. I only tried on Cane ones, do not own, but they were a bit baggier. That pair looks really good. I haven't worn mine since I got PBJs, but maybe I'll break them out again.

Canes are looking great, CMF. I say hold off on that wash. But do what you want.

ive already done a light hand wash... i just dont want too much sweat built up, ya know. ill probably wait a bit, but if it cant pass the nose test, hand wash time.

ill probably wait a few months for a machine wash, as that really bring out the fading alot more than a hand wash in my experience. i manly hand wash to just get the caked up salt deposits out.

also, the fly buttons seem to rust with sweat, so i dont want that.

th crotch is also wearing very fast, and id hate to get a hole there. by fast i mean almost white in spots.

Yeah I know what you mean. Febreze helps for a while, but you obviously beat those pretty hard, so it makes sense to add soap to the equation earlier on.

my lvcs arent very tight, they turned out like that because i try to cycle 4 miles every morning and if i have time another 4 in the evening.

i washed them every 3 months on hot/cold with woolite black (stuff is amazing) with a spin cycle. hang dry for a little then i wore them until they dried. wearing while wet is a must if you want to reset your whiskers and honeycombs. my left honeycombs didnt set too well, im blaming the right hand twill of the LVCs.

im working on some apcs ns right now, i will post pics in a couple of weeks.

i'll try to post a pic of the fit in a little bit.

-later days.
