"Introducing the 'Sasaki Kojiro' 25th Anniversary Special Model"

Crafted in homage to Kojiro Sasaki, renowned alongside Musashi Miyamoto as a master swordsman, this special edition pays tribute to his legacy with Samurai's iconic leather patches. Exclusive to milestones like Samurai's 10th, 15th, and 20th anniversaries, this model boasts a unique cutting technique reserved solely for its production.

The fabric chosen is a bespoke lefthand twill denim, characterized by its rugged yet velvety texture, woven from our distinctive Zero 17 oz. yarn. Drawing inspiration from Kojiro's legendary finesse in wielding a sword, capable of slicing a swallow in mid-flight with a meter-long blade, this design embodies a harmonious blend of resilience and refinement.

Embracing a timeless aesthetic, the silhouette features a classic buckle back and a regular straight cut, reflecting the enduring allure of traditional craftsmanship.

Kojiro Sasaki, celebrated as one of Japan's most illustrious samurai, stood as the formidable adversary of Musashi Miyamoto. His fateful duel with Musashi on Ganryu Island in 1612 marked the climax of their rivalry, leading to his demise. Revered for his mastery of the 'clothesline' sword, Kojiro's life beyond the battlefield remains shrouded in mystery, adding to the enigmatic allure of his legend.

Left-hand twill denim indeed offers some distinct characteristics compared to the more common right-hand twill. The direction of the twill weave can affect how the denim feels, wears, and fades over time.

The claim that left-hand twill tends to produce a softer fabric is attributed to the way the fibers are aligned in the weave. In left-hand twill, the diagonal lines slope from the top right to the bottom left, which can create a smoother texture. This can result in a fabric that feels softer to the touch, especially after washing and wearing.

Additionally, the way left-hand twill denim fades differs from right-hand twill denim. The fading pattern is influenced by how the indigo dye wears off over time. Left-hand twill denim may exhibit a more subtle and unique fading pattern compared to right-hand twill denim, adding to the individuality and character of the garment.

Ultimately, the choice between left-hand twill and right-hand twill denim comes down to personal preference and the desired aesthetic and feel. Both weaves have their own distinct qualities and appeal to different tastes in denim enthusiasts.

Despite being dyed with natural indigo, these jeans undergo a medium-white rope dyeing process, which imparts a classic aesthetic while allowing for distinct fading patterns. This combination offers a balance between the traditional allure of natural indigo and the clear contrast of fading.

Featuring a relaxed tapered silhouette (108 type), these jeans offer both comfort and style, making them a versatile addition to any wardrobe.

STUDIO D'ARTISAN "AISHIBUZOME D1879" 15OZ INDIGO DYIED REGULAR STRAIGHT DENIM JEANS

Regular price €335,00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

These are 15.0oz selvedge jeans featuring "Ai Shibu dyed" treatment. Ai-shibu dyeing is an intricate and time-intensive technique, involving initial dyeing with real indigo to achieve a vibrant blue hue, followed by layering with persimmon tannin. The indigo dyeing results in a deeper color compared to regular methods, with the persimmon tannin intensifying in hue with use, thanks to tannin's property of undergoing condensation polymerization over time.

Persimmon juice, also recognized for its high antibacterial and deodorizing properties, has been historically used in Chinese herbal medicine. Japanese culture, with its reverence for the changing seasons and the ephemeral beauty of nature, finds expression in the colors achieved through indigo dyeing. These hues, passed down through generations, are known as "Japanese colors," possessing a profound and captivating allure that resonates deeply with admirers. The silhouette of these jeans is a regular straight fit.

We never stop striving to overcome gritty and dirty roads with hard work and persistence. That's why we named these 30 pieces limited-edition jeans "The Perseverance".

The Daruma character on our leather patch is a lucky charm and decoration in a typical Japanese household. These dolls also have a deeper meaning, serving as a reminder of hard work, discipline, focus, and perseverance.

By weaving at such low tension, we are able to create a slubbier look and feel. Zero denim (also known as Bushido denim) got its name because it’s the first denim created from scratch, or from ‘zero’, starting from the yarn-making stage.

The left hand twill is a less commonly used weave type where the diagonal lines are often showed with better definition. This fabric is also woven with low tension which adds an incredible soft touch feeling, due to the mix between thick and thin cotton threads.

SAMURAI S500AIW-25TH SHOGUN 17OZ DOUBLE NATURAL INDIGO REGULA STRAIGHT JEANS

Regular price €810,00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
In commemoration of Samurai's 25th anniversary, they created this special denim by dyeing both the warp and the weft in natural indigo. While both warp and weft threads are uneven and slubby, it’s the weft in particular that they injected with a little extra unevenness to give this denim a spectacular visual expression and hand feel.

On top of this they also employed threads that have different concentrations of dye in them, something they were able to control by how many times each thread was dipped during the dyeing process. The gorgeous indigo color created by the intersecting weaves of the warp and weft, combined with the overall slubby texture, make these a truly special pair of jeans.

The selvedge itself is also indigo with silver lame at its core. The pocket bags are done up in a unique check cloth that employs a combination of thread used for natural indigo dyeing and a sashiko fabric finished in a light “asagi” blue. The combination of all these uncompromising elements is something you need to see and feel to fully appreciate.

SUGAR CANE LOT NO. SC41947 14.25OZ. DENIM 1947 MODEL REGULAR STRAIGHT JEANS

Regular price €215,00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
The 1947 model is iconic jeans of Sugar Cane that represents the extravagant details found in the vintage jeans made in the late 1940s. The entire process of production that includes spinning, dyeing, weaving, and sewing is based on one of vintage jeans, and done with great care to create a pair that is worthy of the name “Standard Denim”. The silhouette is regular straight.

Sugar Cane has studied and paid the closest attention to the entire process of recreating vintage denim, such as spinning, weaving, dyeing and stitching. Accordingly, their denim products have been loved and appreciated by many people across the world for a long period of time, establishing their status as timeless classic pieces. This is what we call a true “STANDARD.”

Most modern clothing uses zip fly, but in 1947 button fly was the mainstream. One of the reasons for this is that the fabric used for these jeans is not pre-shrunk, so if the zipper is attached and then washed, the fabric will shrink and the zipper will become unusable. Inspired by vintage, it uses iron buttons with original engraving.

Selvage is used at the edge of the coin pocket opening. Reinforced with punched copper rivets. As you can see from the aging samples, as a result of meticulous attention to the fabric and parts, the denim fabric fades with repeated wear and washing without forcibly modifying it, and the rivets oxidize and show a beautiful aging.

When stitching the top of the waist belt, the belt loops and leather patches are sewn together. The patch is made of deerskin. If you look at vintage jeans, the center back belt loop is sometimes offset, but the 1947 model is centered. Just like vintage clothes, which were made in an era when standards were not yet unified, every detail is faithfully reproduced, such as using dozens of different types of cotton threads of different colors and thicknesses for sewing.

The stitching of the hip pocket is common to both the left and right, starting with the upper right edge stitch, going to the upper left of the pocket, entering inside, inserting the inside stitch and returning to the upper right. Gray hidden bar tacks applied for reinforcement are slightly peeking.

Since exposed rivets may damage horse saddles, cars, furniture, etc., concealed rivets (hidden rivets), which have been adopted since 1937, can be seen from the inside.  Waist pocket sacking. Selvage is used at the edges of the bottom seam allowance. A thick cotton thread is used for the stitching of the crotch part where the load is applied. A reinforcing bar tack is put in the thick part where the fabric gathers.

A model with a height of 175 cm and a weight of 65 kg wears a waist of 30 inches.

SAMURAI X OLD BLUE "KISOUMA" 21 OZ SLIM STRAIGHT DENIM JEANS

Regular price €415,00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hailing from Japan, Samurai was founded in Osaka in 1997 by Toru Nogami (Nogami-san), one of the most renowned personas in the denim world. They’re easily among the most notable denim labels in the world. This is the first-ever collaboration we’ve ever done with a fellow denim brand. Being a denim-head in the early 2000s, we just can’t help but be inspired with all the qualities and particularities Samurai have to offer in the denim industry. One way or another, they assisted us in shaping who we are and what we aim for.

Old Blue decided to use Samurai’s original 21 ounces / sq. yard ‘Cho-Kiwami’ heavy-weight selvedge denim. Heavy ounces denim but constructed with extra-long staple cotton composition (40% Pima cotton, 60% Egyptian cotton). The other heavy consideration why we hand-picked the denim fabric is also because we’d combine it with our own signature 21/23 Oz Japanese Heavy-Weight denim (you often hear it referred as the ‘Beast’). We utilized our 21/23 Oz ‘Beast’ denim fabric for the right back pocket and coin pocket part of the denim build. The denim itself was built using Samurai’s signature 710 Cut. A denim pattern that has a nice and clean slim straight fit as its main offering.

This special OBXSAM denim dungaree surely has lots and lots of favorable details that you can expect from both of us. Specially designed (and exclusively made for this article only) arcuate stitch, special collaboration sheepskin leather patch, special OBXSAM inner woven label, specially made denim flasher (with 2 artworks), are just to name a few. We also utilized both of our signature trims & hardwares and combined ‘em shoulder-to-shoulder; the Oldblue’s Black Tab & Samurai’s Indigo Tab, Oldblue’s copper plated Scovill buttons & Samurai’s Gold Pine buttons, and the Oldblue’s copper Scovill rivets & Samurai’s signature copper rivets.

It’d take other multiple paragraphs to describe and list all the specialties on this ‘Kisouma Selvedge’ limited edition denim. All in all, this denim is best described as the result of a joint-work, joint-mind, and joint-effort between two brands which are just so sincerely passionate about quality denim and everything it comes with. It’s no surprise at all when we work together, the output will be something closely correlated with admirable quality jeans, made with flabbergasting selvedge denim fabric, constructed with redoubtable technique and experience, and filled with so many discreet and thoughtful details.
