SSS22-KRS-OVS - Natural Indigo Kasuri Shirt - Shima
Samurai - SSS22-KRS-OVS - Natural Indigo Kasuri Shirt - Shima
This shirt is a perfect example of Samurai's commitment to their shirting. It's the same commitment to fabrics and construction detail they give to their denim. This one is a natural indigo Kasuri seersucker fabric. What a mouthful. On top of that, the Kasuri fabric is made using the ancient technique of Kasezome or "Kase" dyeing. This process involves a pre-wetting process that opens the fibers to the indigo bath it will be receiving for the next 48 hours - natural indigo at that. The process is repeated several times and at the end, the fabric is steamed to lock in the color. Due to the process being all-natural, way more of the naturally occurring texture in the fabric remains after everything is said and done. They then weave the fabric into this incredible seersucker. The process also leaves the fabric more streaky so you have variations of vertical indigo saturation throughout the already more prominent vertical stripes. They gave it some triple-needle runoffs and a gorgeous tagua nut button to finish making this piece one of the most beautiful things we've ever laid eyes on.

Fit Notes: Ryan is wearing a medium in this puppy. It fits him pretty well overall. Ryan normally wears either a small or medium in most brands from us. He could wear either a medium or large, but opted for the slimmer fit and look of the smaller size. Shop owner Tommy is 5'10,' 162lbs with a 40" chest and would also wear a medium.
This Crosscut has all that heavy texture goodness for which the shirt is known. It's a chunky twill with the enamel-coated buttons you all know and love. And, it's a gorgeous Rust color that shoots a bit of saturation into an otherwise desaturated lineup for FW23. Still though, this shirt has a softness from the brushing process that we've come to appreciate. The day of the stiff, crunchy flannel has come to an end, at least for now. Cozy is in, but without losing the hardiness this thing cut its teeth on.
The Easy Pant is a roomy, comfy fitting pant with a cut nice enough to make you want to wear it out and about, but just as easily to lounge on the couch. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, these pants will pair perfectly with them. We really appreciate that they used their newly acquired fabric wizardry to do the talking. Since pairing with their factory in India, the level of textile uniqueness is through the roof. This Jacquard has a topographical hand feel that you can see in the pictures but only truly experience in person. It's very, very hard to shock us after 10 years of seeing and touching fabrics on a daily basis - but this Dry Garden Jacquard has opened our eyes to what technical weaving can be.
The Shop Jacket is a new silhouette for FW23 that is designed with a nod toward classic European chore coats. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, this jacket will layer over the top of them so nicely.

We figured it was due time to bring in some tees from our fan-favorite brand. Our thinking was that if they make pants and shirts and sweats so well, the tee shirts must be impeccable. Well, they are. We love the loose, boxy fit of this tee more than we expected. And the little embroidery of the islands of Japan at the yoke is fantastic. The jersey fabric is heavy without being a "heavyweight" tee. It's a jersey with just enough weight that you can feel it but not so much that it feels like a task to put it on. This and the roomier cut give it nice breathability. If you're an orSlow stan like we are at the shop, you're gonna need one of these puppies.
If you asked the question "What would it be like if you put pockets on the Fatigue Pants?" - this might just be your answer. Of course, it has different pockets and a slightly different cut, but a similar look overall. We've received more questions about this pant over the past 6 months than we know what to do. Sometimes, we like to snag something, if we can, to test fit and glean public opinion. This one was a "yes" from the general pop, and from us at the shop, so it had to be brought in. The major difference between this and most fatigues is that ripstop fabric. It's the grid pattern you see on a macro level in the pants that is built to be more resistant to ripping and tearing. It was one of the military's first tech fabrics, without using any actual synthetic tech. Where they lack the texture of the reverse sateen, they gain a ton with the ripstop. These are a little smoother overall and we're over the moon for this roomier fit. They take on a whole new wardrobe inspiration with this loose, comfy feel. The side tab adjusters make it quite utilitarian as the piece is as a whole in general. These babies have everyone swooning.
