    Uh oh, don't hate...

    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.

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

    True, will erase that info from the thread.

    About 37", why not just hem them?

    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.

    that's funny.
    I feel bad for Kiya. He tries so hard to do what he does ( and he does it well) and get's stabbed in the back. it's not eason fault either. I can understand his excitement.
    Kiya has invested a lot in Imperial I just want him to succeed with the brand.

    I already answered this, but I like the dropped yoke, since I already own two pairs of low rise slim denim which hug my butt. The craftsmenship and denim quality are top notch, and they look sick when stacked.

    Well- I got them, but somehow a "32/37.5" measurement turned out to me 33W/34L... what? They are fucking nice, though, which is a shame. However, they are not at all slim and fit like a pair of JNCO's. May have to dispute the charge, thank god I used a CC w/ paypal

    What the hell?
    The waist sounds right, +1" over tagged size, and many times the inseam is cut shorter on samples so that it's easier worn by people without a hem for getting any idea of what the fit is like. I have no idea why they're baggy though, they shouldn't be. They should have a mid/high rise and be fairly slim below the thigh.

    What? You got him to sell you unreleased samples and now you want to dispute the charge to force a return [​IMG]

    Well, they're tagged/written in as "33/34 vintage duke". Everything I've heard about them has people saying that the thighs are really tight- these aren't, I wouldn't even call them slim, more like relaxed. I guess I could try and get them tailored to a smaller waist/slimmer fit, but it wouldn't be cheap...

    I didn't "get" him to sell me anything, he was selling a pair of dukes and I bought them.
