Founded in 1997 in Osaka, Samurai is one of the most appreciated denim labels in the world. The name was inspired by the duel of 1612 between Sasaki Kojiro and Miyamoto Musashi, the two swordsmen were bitter rivals at the time. The duel began with both men on guard as a show of respect for the other’s skill with their own style and technique. In the end, though, there could be only one winner. Musashi had provoked Kojirō to make the first attack. Miyamoto quickly countered and succeeded in breaking Kojirō’s left ribs and puncturing his lungs, eventually killing him. With such history behind, Samurai Jeans could never go wrong and built a history of its own in the denim world.
This is the fourth edition model of the SAMURAI JEANS Yamato series.
The denim uses 15oz Yamato Tamashii selvage, and is made with uneven yarn with extra-long fibres woven under heavy tension with an old fashioned loom. . It twists well to fit your body. This cotton is spun into threads that are similar to the most popular Matsusaka cotton during the Edo period. The texture and dynamic vertical fading are very attractive features surrounding this denim.
