Samurai - 25oz Limited Edition "Saigoku-Musou" Model - Straight Fit O/W
This is the SS22 pair we've been waiting for from Samurai. This is the seasonal special edition built around a Samurai in history. This round is dedicated to Tachibana Muneshige (December 18, 1567 - November 15, 1643). This was during th Azuchi-Momoyama period and the Edo-period daimyō. He was considered the best samurai (Musou) in West Japan (Saigoku). Being one of the most famous samurais from Western Japan, he didn't believe in the concept of an "honorable death" in war. He was known for his military capabilities and loyalty to his land and strived to live during ware, vs dying honorably. Believing that people have the power to govern their own fate, Muneshige desires to act without bending to the era's whims and be as free as the wind.
That's all to be said to set the background without even talking about the incredible details used to honor this Samurai. To people who know Samurai, they've come to expect all the intricacies that make them who they are. We get to spend each new arrival combing over the details of these pants, and let me tell you...we simply don't see anyone doing it better. From the shiny gold buttons to the cowhide leather patch and all the way down to the gold/silver intertwined ticker, they don't put a foot wrong. Our favorite detail has to be one that is reserved for the wearer - the pocket bags. This special edition, the proprietary fabric is a rich brown base with a portrayal of enemies battling. It feels like a tapestry on the interior of your pants and will make slipping them on that much better every time. That all goes without saying that this pair is 25oz!

Fit Notes: Ryan is wearing a size 31 in the pictures. Being a bit slimmer, he squeezed this size even with the slightly lower rise (they consider this rise a medium). These do have a roomier fit overall, but that is their intended fit. You're supposed to be able to move in them. These are considered a true straight fit. Pay close attention to the size charts. We've taken these ourselves. Tommy is 5'10,' 165lbs with a 32-33" waist and would wear a size 32 for reference..
