Every fit comes with a unique and vibrant pocket square gracefully stitched on the coin pocket: our IDentification. This trademark shows that we can stand out with our actions. Flash your coin pocket with pride!

For those who love inspiring others, the Mahty is the perfect fit. ID's skinniest jean is designed for modern day comfort. Every coin pocket is meticulously stitched with shades of orange.

Risks and challenges

With any project, there are associated risks. In our case, the supply-chain is fully in motion. The suppliers and manufacturer are simply waiting on our orders. Once the orders are placed, timing is always a factor. As mentioned in the schedule section, we plan on ordering the fabrics before the end of our Kickstarter campaign. This will create a buffer zone that should enable us to tackle any issues and assure a timely delivery at the end of June.

The jeans presented above and on our website are based on the final prototype of each fit. If we make any minor fit adjustments, backers will be notified before they receive their surveys to finalize the order. Obviously, if there are any issues (wrong size sent, defects, etc.), we will replace the jeans immediately with shipping on us.

We appreciate your support and look forward to getting the jeans in your hands. At Imperium Denim, we believe in transparency. Throughout the campaign, we will constantly communicate with backers via updates and our social media outlets. Please send any feedback or queries you may have to Andrew (andrew@imperiumdenim.com). Thank you!
