Samurai Jeans SJST23-RIM Loopwheel Ripened Cotton Solid Tee Sumi
You can go really far with just a plain T-shirt and a pair of jeans. And like the jean, the hunt for a perfect tee can be daunting, so Samurai has some of the best t-shirts money can buy in their core collection. No need to search further.
This t-shirt is made by inlaying aged cotton on a hanging knitting Loopwheel machine. Cotton that is compressed and transported as a lump is allowed to mature for 30 to 50 days in a temperature and humidity-controlled room to restore the original fluffy cotton fibres. The cotton is then spun into special yarn and knitted on a hanging knitting machine in Wakayama. Usually, a hanging knitting machine can only knit 1 meter per hour, which takes a lot of time and effort, but Samurai knits in high gauge inlays while utilizing the characteristics of this yarn; they can only knit 48cm per hour. In the case of high-gauge inlays, only about 48 cm can be knitted per hour. Although the fabric is inefficient and cannot be made in large quantities, the result is a hanging fabric that is soft and moist to the touch, thicker than a jersey, and less stretchy.
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.
