great, how do you know?

Do you know what part of the range they are getting and about what it will cost for a pair of dry Duke's?

BRENT

I do not think you can judge the denim from the photos. They fade very well in my opinion.

If loving denim is wrong i don't want to be right.

yeah

I have my camera back now so expect them soon. However, i can't get on SF as much anymore, so busy around december.

I'm glad people are starting to appreciate Imperials more.

I would love to see pictures from those people who have ordered recently. Especially if anyone has a dry black selvage pair or a pair with the indigo coloured pocket embroidery. Tossing up which i am going to buy next so need some photos.

Come on help us out here.

i ordered the black washed selvage, same ones as haptronic posted earlier i believe.

hopefully they fit around the thigh for me, little bigger there

was torn between this and the blue raw, but figured i have way too many blue projects going on right now to devote consistent time to a black pair, so went for a wash.

i can't, however, get my mind of getting some new standards, my apc collection is severely underrepresented. if anyone is selling...

Broken Twill selvage, i would be definitely picking that up, i wonder which mill they are using to weave that denim.

alex_844 how do you know? Do you know the guys at Nomad?

If so an update on what pieces they are getting would be great and prices as well.

How can I get in contact with Imperial? Did you all buy your jeans through email from them? I emailed the info address a few days ago, but so far, nothing.

Yes that is the raw blue, i have worn them quite a bit so maybe that is whats different from the site.

Also, it is pretty hard to tell from my photos i guess.

How come you don't have a leather tag?

Why would he do that?

Maybe similar to that whole unstitching of the back pocket embroidery that people did to their levis for awhile.

Not my thing

yeah i took it off. Kept it as a souvenir, was worried about it getting cut up on the bitumen when i skate downhill.

thinking back i should have kept it on. My mate's pair the leather tag has faded nicely, the blue from the denim has smudged all over the leather too looks sick.
