This unique Samurai shirt design takes inspiration from classic open-collar aloha shirts of the 50s and is cut from a Kamon printed twill fabric. Kamon are Japanese emblems used to identify family lineages from ancient times. The origin of Kamon goes far back to the latter part of the Heian Period, and Kamon became the symbol of Japanese Samurais. Of course, the Samurai jeans symbol is one of the many Kamon that you can find in this shirt.
The shirt features a pattern-matched chest pocket and wooden buttons. It is firm and soft and can be worn with the collar open or buttoned all the way up with the loop. Whether buttoned up or left to hang open with a plain white tee underneath, this shirt transcends aesthetics.
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.
