These jeans are inspired by Uguisu, a small green bird that is natively found throughout Japan. The Uguisu bird is also commonly known as the Japanese Bush-Warbler. It is named for its beautifully distinctive song, which is typically associated with the coming of spring.
For this Spring-Summer season, Samurai wanted to create something unique, green denim with a lot of texture and character. So they have been working with Shinya Mills, one of the most renowned mills in Japan, to create a fabric representative of British vintage in terms of colour and texture.
They have used #5 x #5 yarn of American, Australian, and Brazilian cotton blend woven with the "left-hand twill" technique on old shuttle looms to reach this fantastic slub consistency.
The left-hand twill is a style of weaving where the lines of grain run from the top left-hand corner of the fabric towards the bottom right-hand corner. Denim jeans that use the left-hand twill technique have a generally soft and fluffy feeling, especially after washing them. In addition, this fabric has also been low tension woven, so it adds much more slub and character to the final result. It is highly irregular denim, both in terms of texture and colour. Thinner and thicker cotton threads run through each other, creating one of the most unique textures you will ever feel.
These jeans are full of details, such as the super thick 0.3mm leather patch, iron Ume buttons, copper rivets and the Samurai Syogyomujo lining (Woven text in the pockets jacquard lining that translates to ''Everything including me is constantly changing.)
The cut is a comfortable straight tapered fit, which gives comfort in the top block and a relaxed, moderate taper through the legs with a mid-rise.
*Please, keep in mind that this model runs bigger than other Samurai jeans. As always, we recommend checking the size chart.
Samurai jeans have become a legend in the Japanese denim scene. Created in Osaka by Toru Nogami in 1997, Samurai represents the perfection of Japanese tradition, with its iconography of Sengoku-era Samurais and the search for the best and nothing but the best through materials, artisan garment-making techniques and unique detailing.
