Samurai jeans, established in Osaka by Toru Nogami in 1997, have achieved legendary status in Japanese denim culture. Rooted in Sengoku-era Samurai imagery, the brand embodies Japanese tradition through expert craftsmanship, premium materials, and unique designs. Samurai's journey began with their rendition of the 501 (S510XX), ranging from 15oz to 25oz denim, establishing their heavyweight denim reputation. Beyond weight, Samurai considers factors like cotton quality, climate, and dyeing techniques, using vintage machinery to create authentic vintage selvedge denim.
Nogami's leadership has led to innovative changes, introducing new cuts and limited editions featuring distinct elements like wagyu leather patches, silver buttons, and Japanese symbology. This commitment extends to cultivating their own cotton in Hyogo prefecture. As pioneers in Japanese denim, Samurai's meticulousness enticed enthusiasts into the denim world. Presently, as a select Western retailer of Samurai jeans, we take immense pride in providing access to some of the finest denim craftsmanship available.
