    Just like the title says, I have a pair of Imperial Dukes here, size 30 washed. Imperial only offers them in one wash, so I don't think it has a specific name. It is, however, a gorgeous wash. Very subtle and natural. The denim has a very solid and soft feel. Hard to describe, but I prefer is very much over the feel of Nudie's washed denim. I guess you could compare it to a thicker Julian Red washed denim. They're pretty slim, without being skin tight. They are selvage, and it goes all the way up. Very distinctive back pocket design, without being obnoxious. The buttons are really neat too - they're much wider than normal jean buttons. Always takes me by surprise when I go to unbutton them. I've worn these maybe four times, and have not washed them. They're just a tiny bit too short for me. Probably not noticeable to anyone else, but it bugs the shit out of me. Measurements: Waist: 15" - this is me pulling the waistband out, releasing, and then measuring. They are a true 30 here, no vanity sizing. Inseam: 32 1/4" Thigh: 9 1/2" - measured about 3 or 4 inches below the crotch Knee: 7 3/4" Hem: 7 1/4" Front rise: 10" Back rise: 12 1/2" Asking $145 shipped. Feel free to ask questions or just give me some feedback/comments on them. Pics! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    $170 is more than what Imperial directly sold them for.

    Well then I guess Imperial just ripped me off. I'm open to offers, but I put out an initial price that I think is fair.

    How much do the dry versions run at Nomad? $225?

    I know, I know! I do keep a ton, I just have WAY too many! It really is a hobby for me.

    At least it's more useful than collecting weird figurines or everyday food products that look like Jesus.
