Fade Friday – Imperial Denim Duke

In honor of our friends on the other side of the globe, we’ve chosen the Imperial Denim Duke for this week’s Fade Friday. Strongly committed to retaining traditional weaving techniques, Imperial Denim employs a few dedicated, passionate artisans to produce beautifully constructed garments.  In fact, their beliefs and pride in their Australian roots are held so strong that they even have a denim that pays tribute to the graziers, shearers, and sheep’s of their homeland (Imperial Denim Black Shearer Jeans).

Getting back to the matter at hand, however, it’s amazing to see the result of these Imperial Denim Duke in just a matter of seven months.
