Shawl Sweater Coat - Black, Tan
Dehen - Shawl Sweater Coat - Black, Field Tan
This was the piece that hooked us! The level of detail and construction on this shawl sweater coat is the best we've ever seen, hands down. No one in the world does knits the way Dehen does and has been doing for 100 years now. The tightness in the knit and feeling you get when you slip these jackets over your shoulders can't be touched. It's just too good. We love the brown buttons and waxed elbow reinforcement. We love the shawl collar and the fit. We honestly love just about everything with this jacket.

A variance of .5" is within tolerance.
Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is 5'10" and 162lbs. In the photos, he's wearing a size medium. For Dehen in general, his keystone size seems to work. With something like this, you want a little room to breathe. You honestly won't need too many layers underneath, but your true size should still be spot on in this piece.
The "Zero" fabric has been on our radar from the beginning. It's one of, if not the most famous Samurai denim. This is the original 5-button edition. They love this one so much, they send out stickers and pins to commemorate it. This fabric was first introduced in 2004 after a long development period. It broke many looms and many needles along the way. It is their tried and true. They've used an uneven No. 5 yarn for both the warp and weft for maximum fading potential. These things have a sh*tton of character. They finished it off with the gold and red selvedge ticker. We can not wait to see these fade.

Well, this round they've done it with the zipper - another thing not often seen from Samurai. This is no ordinary zipper, it's a Scoville "Gripper" zipper.

You already know if Samurai produces anything, they're not playing around. So would they do a chino any lighter than 15oz? Most likely not. These things are bonkers. They honestly might as well be a pair of olive selvedge denim, but they have a chino cut. The metallic silver Lamé selvedge line will make them feel even more so like your favorite pair of jeans. These might be unsanforized, but they've had a factory wash to alleviate almost all of that shrinkage. We simply had to see what a Chino from Samurai would look like, and we weren't disappointed. We absolutely love the fabric and we're enamored with the looser, super comfy fit. This is a wardrobe starter for guys looking to get out of their super tight selvedge denim.
How could we say no to these jeans? They have custom hardware designed to pay homage to jeans from the 1940s/50s. Their Otokogi denim is 100% Texas cotton known for its rough texture and impeccable vintage fading qualities. It's a short fibre cotton that creates the rough texture you see. Normally, those fibers are removed to make the cotton smooth, but Samarui adds more to ramp it up even more. They've also used 100% Texas cotton sewing throughout, something we rarely see these days. This denim is for the purist at heart. As the denim is spun at a high tension, even post soak/wash they will become even more stiff (luckily they're only 15oz to start, and not 25). This will result in some of the best fading denim on the planet.
We are absolutely blown back by this fabric. For one, it's not your traditional wabash stripe. They've used throwing stars for the pattern - an incredible idea. To us, the raw fabric is pretty contrasting up front. It can be hard to imagine how it will age. But luckily, they've done that for us and we think it takes the perfect amount of sting out of that contrast. It makes this shirt perfect for comfort and aesthetics up front. That's all not to mention that it's an indigo x black denim. That's what gives this shirt is beautiful, deep, shadowy indigo color. And if you look on the inside, you'll notice the fabric is a few shades darker...so when you roll up your cuffs you get to see that wonderful character. This shirt is simply stunning. We're so glad we brought it to the shop.
