Samurai Jeans: new items from Japan

We have received a new batch of clothing straight from Osaka. Not only some proper basics like high quality, loop-wheeled t-shirts but more exquisite items that Samurai is known for too. Take the indigo vest for example: it's made of a gorgeous wabash-cloth that's a little different than your avarage wabash. In the true spirit of the Samurai (or ninja?) you'll notice the pattern is made up of shurikens, or throwing stars.

Also, the popular Samurai S003JP Jin jeans are back in stock again. These jeans are inspired by Lee denim. At 15 oz it's a little heavier than your average Lee jeans though. Still, the denim is very well spun (left hand, of course) and has a slubby charcter. It's the slimmest jeans by Samurai that we carry.

Next to the Jin we also carry a 17 oz model, the regular straight S5000VX. Together with the S710XX this is one of the most populair jeans Samurai makes. A proper straight fit with a slight taper, hidden rivets, heavy pocket bags and a mid rise. Note that these jeans still have the arcuates and red tab. You won't see that outside Japan, except at DC4 Berlin.

Jeans aren't complete without a matching belt. Heavy jeans should be accompanied by a heavy belt, and that's why we offer the Samurai Super Heavy Belt made out of the most thick (7 mm) and sturdy steer hide you'll find. This belt needs some breaking in!

To finish up we have two shirts in stock, both dyed with indigo. A work shirt made from a heavy cloth and lined with a brown version of the shuriken wabash fabric,  and a checkered white/blue flannel.
