For those arent aware IMPERIAL just released 3 new fits in the recent denim event in Bangkok held by PRONTO boutique. Here are some pictures off their website

Cattleman

Prospector

And the updated KING fit called 'New King'

It's said that Cattleman is like a lower rise of Shearer, Prospector is a slim tight fit and the new king is a narrower fit from the usual fit...updated from relax to a more regular fit with narrower legs. Each denim is different from Brokentwill to HempBlend. All Japan Made.

Quite an update from IMPERIAL!

Is the imperial shearer really a 12" rise on a size 29? It looks like a slim 19cm cut but a generous rise looks great. I am a peasant atm wearing apc petit standards and it has a tiny 9" rise. Cna anyone who owns both the shearers and another slim denim shed some light on this issue? Thanks

I'm aussie but am in sydney. From my findings I would only try the jeans on in store and get them from selfedge, i think they would be much more expensive from a brick and mortar store.

and LYN.net Raw selvedge Denim Thread, small community of raw denim in Malaysia. https://forum.lowyat...ic/2413776/ 720

Imperial Duke, MIJ, 1 initial soak. My second pair of raw denim.

11/03-2012 - 07/12/2012, rotate with my N&F Skinny Guy (my gateaway pair) so actual wear is half of the period, give or take. Click for a bigger picture.

A bit more,

though i really looks forward for the 'x' bar tacks on the MIA version when i ordered it, i kinda like how the hidden rivets fades the area.

Sounds awesome, I've always been interested in the shearer jeans but never really see that many of them around, so maybe the cattleman or prospector will get more love. I wonder why they reduced the denim's weight though.
