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

    Then how does the CC chargeback fit into this equation?

    These dukes are kind of interesting- they're made with a much softer selvedge denim than the regular imperials, but I can't be sure about the exact weight. I'm going to try and get some pics up showing the fit, maybe it is normal.

    Sounds like you didn't get Dukes-
    Maybe you got the Shearer.
    Kiya's right- samples are often unlike actual production models, for any number of reasons.

    Sam, these actually don't even sound like the shearer jeans.. I have no idea what he got, the only thing that it MIGHT be is the slightly lighter weight denim Duke sample they made a few of with an off white stitching instead of yellow.
    Sell em on eBay for $650 while you can.

    Kiya, those are the ones! The stiching isn't yellow, but off-white/tan. I noticed it on the back pockets especially. I will try and get pics soon, all I have now is my webcam. edit: temp webcam pics [​IMG] The fit isn't as bad as I thought the first night- since I was expecting not being able to button them up all the way, or for them not to make it past my Muay Thai thighs at all. I may keep them and just get the waist taken in an inch, and have the legs tapered to a 7 inch opening so they stack better. Also interesting to note, there is no leather tag.

    You bought Dukes with a potential new fabric/stitch being used.

    That fit doesn't look bad at all to be honest...

    Introducing the new Imperial Shearer Jeans..

    More Info, Specs, etc:

    Those look really really awesome. The cut of those is just perfect for a skinny jean, imo. They aren't skin tight, but still pretty narrow.

    Every pair of Imperial denim I see looks amazing though. I'm almost positive my next pair of denim will be the Imperial Dukes. [​IMG]
