What about Jeans Jackets ....

Recommended Posts

@dada mafiosi I have a couple of their jackets. They’re great and quite fast faders. Is that one wash? Looks like you could put it through a hot wash to get it to tighten up a bit.

@dada mafiosi nice jacket... is it the 21oz? I have to cuff the sleeves on my Samurai as they're too long but actually quite like it for a change. If you put it through the wash as @Toegun says you might not need cuffs.

@Toegon, yes, this is one wash. If you notice front side pic the size is just right as I wear 55cm shirt pit to pit and the jacket is 55.5 cm. 

But as back side has small pleats, it looks loose

@MJF9 Thanks, it is 15oz. Sleeves are 63cm while in the same chest width TCH had 67cm. 

Samurai jacket has additional 2 to 3 cm in sleeves for me, I think they keep it deliberately so people with longer arms can wear, also gives opportunity for honeycombs. 

This is one-wash , I don't think even hot wash will work to shrink further

The below evolution pictures I found on internet are of Samurai S0551XX Type I Jacket, inspired me and helped me decide which brand I should select for my next denim jacket. 

The denim used in both Samurai S0551XX and S0552XX is the same 15oz Texan cotton.  

In these pics you will notice one the the best evolution of denim jackets that is available on internet, nice fading is far better than other competitive high end brands. Rusted buttons are certainly one of the finest details that you reach during the journey of denim love. 

In my S0552XX jacket, I notice size of custom iron buttons are in great proportion (i.e. perfectly sized), looks great, feel rugged and soft. Yellow thread construction in most of the front parts, looks amazing, contrasts beautifully on indigo (you can say denim wearing gold ornaments). 

Samurai is Samurai of denim.
