New - Samurai S710BK Black Shadow Ltd Ed.

The S710BK Black Shadow is the second model of our Limited Edition Blue in Green and Samurai collaboration "Shadow" series, a two part production using Samurai's S710 Mid rise Tapered leg silhouette and cut for the first time in their 17oz selvage "Zero" denims in Indigo and Black.  The Black Shadow model features the Black Zero denim with Black topstitch detailing, Black leather patch embossed with Silver ink, Black rivets, the Samurai Jin model iron plated buttons, and Jin model Ecru color front pocket bags with an original Jacquard woven pattern.

As with our S710BKII-BIG model that also uses this 17oz Black "Zero" denim, the warp threads of the fabric are dyed Black prior to weaving and the weft yarns are White as is common with indigo-dyed jeans. In addition, as the Black warp yarns are rope dyed, and the cores of the yarns are left undyed, the denim will crock and fade similar to Indigo dyed denim jeans.
