I agree, Pants are usually at a regular level maybe a slight sag, I put the timer on, then ran to get in the pic, pants slipped a bit.

Some great stuff on this page. Inspired me to give my dukes a bit more loving. About 100 wears. I'm stuck in a 3 jeans rotation which i always said would never happen so progress slow. That said, the dukes fade fast.

I hate to order online but I was going to get some Dukes for my friend and I and I was wondering how they size compared to n&f skinny guys in the waist. Not too concerned with the fit everywhere else, just how the waist fits. I'm a 28-29 and he's a 30.

guys, im looking to buy an imperial as my 2nd pair of raw denim, currently rocking N&F broken twill skinny guy, size 28.

well the thing is, im from malaysia and will be studying in melbourne this february. n i heard that the 1 shop that sells imperials at melb, alloftheabove wont stock it anymore. so how can i get to try those pair on? i want it to be a straight, kinda-lose-skinny fit.

they still are in production right? not that it stop or any ? since from what i read a few pages back, everyone seems to be looking for a pair by asking other forummers here in sufu..

^ those stores dont carry imperials anymore but you can try pronto or selfedge. they have different collabs with imperials.

i think the imperial dukes would be the fit youre looking for, its skinny on the thighs but looser below knees, a skinny slim straight fit

Hey all, I have 2 brand new pairs of Dukes that don't fit. 36 in indigo, and 34 in black. Got 'em on sale, so if you want a pair for way less than retail, hit me up!

@apside

i'd say only go 1 size lower than your tts at max for a thinner fit, and a tts for a comfy fit (but a little looser knee down)

I think n&f stretches 2? Not too sure since i've never owned a pair, but I'd say going for a 29

First pair of denims, must admit great pair of jeans! So I've been wearing these for month and a half now, and I'm running into some trouble. I was fat, well not fat but chubbier than I am now month and a half ago. And when I purchased these imperials at Selfedge I had to get a sz. 32 waist. Now that I lost 15 pounds, the waist is bigger than they should be, and it looks kind of weird when I wear it. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS PROBLEM? =/

I hemmed off 4 inches, and got it tapered at a local tailoring store, turned out pretty good.

They were never soaked or washed, let me know how I'm doing!

Would the proxi03 be the same fit as the sexi14?

I'm having a hard time finding sexi08s or sexi14s. SE only has black ones left ffs. Scouring the forums, everyone who is selling one, has them worn with creases and fades and shit. I'm looking for a relatively new or brand new one.

Any ideas? I was thinking if the proxi03 has the same fit, I'd get those instead.

well i believe proxi03 has a similar fit to the sexi14's. they both have a slimmer fit, proxi03 having the apc petite fit, but sexi14 having the 18 cm cut (i think correct me if i'm wrong)

proxi's are around the same price as sexi14's!

i'll post a pictures of my fit once i get them if that makes it easier for you to choose

Please do :)

I know both have a slimmer fit, but there isn't much info on the proxi03.There probably are in some of the Thai forums, but even after using google translate, I don't get much out of the discussions. I know the sexi14 has a cut similar to 18 or 18.5cm yeah.
