This heavyweight denim is woven on a vintage wooden shuttle loom; only the weaving craftsmen of the highest merit and skill were able to tame the looms that created tough denim over 20 ounces. Their blood, sweat, and soul are symbolized by the strands of red and gold lamé, which run along the selvedge line of this 21oz denim.
These jeans are full of details, such as the "Syogyomujo 諸行無常" jacquard pocket lining, the iron made rising sun button or the sheep leather patch.
The cut is the S520XX, a relaxed tapered fit. The taper is aggressive so that it gives a slim-fitting silhouette while allowing for a lot of space at the thighs with a high rise.
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.
