Samurai - 17oz "Shogun" Double Natural Indigo Selvedge Jeans - Middle Straight
In commemoration of their 25th anniversary, the brand has crafted a special denim that captures the essence of playfulness. The warp and weft threads have been immersed in natural indigo dye, resulting in a mesmerizing blend of colors. Both threads exhibit a charming unevenness and slubby texture, but it is the weft that showcases an extra touch of whimsy, creating a visually striking horizontal expression and an incredibly satisfying feel.
Taking their creativity to new heights, the brand has meticulously controlled the dyeing process to impart different concentrations of dye into the threads. The intertwining of warp and weft weaves produces a gorgeous indigo color that, when combined with the overall slubby texture, transforms these jeans into truly exceptional pieces.
But that's not all that sets this denim apart. The selvedge itself, adorned in indigo, features a core of silver lamé that adds a touch of sparkle. The pocket bags are a sight to behold as well, crafted from a unique check cloth that combines threads treated with natural indigo dye and a sashiko fabric finished in a delightful "asagi" blue shade. The harmonious interplay of these uncompromising elements creates an experience that must be seen and felt to be fully appreciated.
In the world of denim, this brand's 25th-anniversary creation stands out as a testament to its unwavering commitment to quality and its boundless creativity. Step into a realm where whimsy meets craftsmanship, and be captivated by the allure of these exceptional jeans.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a 32 in the pictures. He would likely size up to a 33 for a roomier fit in the waist and legs, but that is his personal preference. The 32 had enough room everywhere and would stretch to fit...but for his preferred silhouette he would have to size up. Tommy is 5'10,' 180lbs with a 32-33" waist.
