Samurai Jeans

Japan is a country that is rooted in tradition and their denim business is no different. Brands like Samurai have kept true to this ethos and has become one of the most popular denim brands to come out of the country. Since being introduced in 2004, Samurai has kept to the core of denim heritage by only designing styles with the technical skills that were handed down through generations. These are techniques that have only grown to ensure that they are only providing jeans at the utmost quality.

Samurai Jeans

Keeping to tradition, Samurai keeps their jeans clean. There is no sight of pre-worn or vintage inspired washes anywhere in their line just deep blues in various classic fits that any denim head will love and not be offended by. Just their signature archs, tabs and leather patch on the waistband.

The s710xx 19oz. Selvedge

The s710xx comes in Samurai’s signature 19oz. denim and a slim tapered cut, that has a roomy thigh with a slight taper to the hem to give a clean look and comfort and mobility due to their rigidity.

The denim of these is on the heavier side of the spectrum, though not the heaviest. But they carry enough weight to really hold up and take on some heavy breaking in.

The s5000vx 17oz. Selvedge

The s5000vx 17oz. Selvedge from Samurai is a wide cut jean, think the classic 501 in terms of cut. If you are not looking for a pair of slim selvedge jeans, these are the ones to try. They are cut generously in the leg and carry a classic sense to them and will only do so as you wear them.

Fabric and Color

The wash of the denim is just as classic as the cut. They are a timeless dark blue that’ll break in and carry the fades amazing. They are a lighter denim, in terms of weight, but will hold all the whiskering and honeycombs that will surely happen.
