Imperial Denim – Imperial Prospector Raw Denim Jean

Imperial Denim Prospector Leather Patch

Imperial Denim is known for producing top quality jeans with a nod to traditional denim aesthetics and craftsmanship. Their newest offering, the Prospector, maintains the old-fashion aesthetic and high-quality design with an updated slim, tapered fit.

With the creation of the Imperial Prospector, the Australian brand has reached out to an audience in need of a slimmer fitting jean. However, keeping consistent with the rest of the their offerings, the jean is made in Japan, crafted from high quality Japanese selvedge denim, and finished with all Japanese hardware.

In addition to the slim-tapered characteristic, these jeans feature an eye-catching leather patch that shows an old prospector sifting for gold. The Imperial logo takes it place in the bottom-right corner, and a court of kangaroos in the top-right. Coupled with the special copper rivets, it’s clear thoughtful considerations were made in the jean’s aesthetics.

    Great fit and denim, the pocket stitching freaking kills me though. Deal breaker.

  • Devan Prithipaul

    I have the Imperial Shearers (which I love). How are these different? Seems same rise, cut etc…

    • Self Edge – Kiya

      The fabric is completely different, these are now made in Japan, and the rise is considerably lower on these (the shearer has a high rise).
