Samurai Jeans - New and Recent Items

Been real busy here as usual but finally getting a chance to post some of the new products we've received lately. We're working to get everything uploaded to the webstore as quickly as we can though it's a tiny operation we got here but we like it that way, it just takes us a little time to get to everything so we do appreciate everyone's patience as we do so.

Now on to the new and recent items from Samurai which includes their Heavy Weight Long Sleeve T's featuring a triple-needle stitched collar band and using Samurai's original #14 gauge knit fabric produced on vintage Japanese circular knit machines;


The limited edition S003JP17oz-L Yamato Series jeans which are a heavier weight left-hand twill version of their slimmest fitting S003JP silhouette. As with all of the jeans in Samurai's Yamato series they're made of selvage denim using cotton which has been spun in Matsusaka city (famous for cotton spinning for over 500 years), Japanese Wagyu Leather patch, Indigo dyed Jacquard pocket lining, and Pure Silver stitch detail accents; 


An Indigo Dyed Wabash Hunting Cap with Samurai's original wabash discharge print design, adjustable straps, and lined with their original jacquard pocket lining;

And the recently released limited edition  S5000AI24oz Straight Leg Jeans made of Samurai's original 24oz Hand Dyed Natural Indigo selvage denim. Not too many special details on these aside from the Gold tack buttons but, hand dyed 24oz natural indigo denim (first time ever attempted?) woven on vintage Japanese wooden shuttle looms (which only Samurai does?), seems deserving of such subtle detailing.



These and all of our Samurai items are available in store and online here
