    Posted this in the Ask a Q thread, but after no response I figured it deserved it's own topic now that I have pics. Has anybody here heard of Imperial dukes made with a new selvedge fabric? I am buying a sample pair of Dukes from a store owner, which are supposed to only differ in the fabric. Of course, it's hard to tell without looking at them in person, and I don't know what to look for. I'm sure the seller is legit, but I just never heard of this release. Among other options was a very similiar fit to the duke, w/o any back pocket stitching called the "The Shearer". Here are pics of the duke in the new fabric: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] here are the pics of the shearer [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What you're seeing is the samples of products that haven't been released yet.
    Kinda odd that a store is selling samples.. What store is it?

    The Shearer jeans are being released Feb 14th, and Self Edge is doing the press release for them next week. They're a med/high rise slim jean with a strong taper and a super cool leather tag.

    That's so sick man. That denim looks on point. I have a pair of Indigo Kings being tailored right now. A little small for me but cant wait to wear em and stretch em out.

    Ridiculous.

    CONTEXT will be adding the Shearer along with more Dukes and Kings in the next few weeks as well.

    a lot of people don't like it, but it's probably my fav design detail of the jeans after the low yoke and long inseam.

    the long inseams may be my least favorite thing about them. does anyone know the inseam on those shearers?

    About 37", why not just hem them?

    No hate, but it does undermine the launches. You may be getting the guy in trouble, btw. I mean, does the brand know about this practice? well, in any case, not my business. If he does this, and doesn't warn people not to blow things up, and he gets in trouble for it, well, that's his deal. If he has an understanding with the company, that's also his deal.

    I do hate Imperial's back pocket stitching, so the new design is an improvement.

    True, will erase that info from the thread.

    i've never tried a pair on, so i'm not too sure if it would be too much stacking for me to have them hemmed. i'm 5"11 so i may be able to pull them off.

    I have this visual of Kiya and Mauro chasing Eason, who is shedding his shirt (as all white dudes do on Cops) while "Bad Boys" plays in the background.
