Samurai Jeans

Recommended Posts

Wassup guys , thought i’d bring some life to this thread again. Currently I’m working on 710xx19OZ (7 month, 1 soak) and I finally picked up the SWD-L01 (about 2 months). Really love this shirt, can’t wait to see how it Evo’s. Also very excited about the Book of Element series, can’t wait to see the VOID edition.

Not sure if this is new or not, but I hadn't seen it. Samurai has a web store that appears to be international friendly.  International prices, but it looks like they have a decent return/exchange policy, which you don't get from Rakuten.

Blue Owl is carrying some Samurai models now, also.

Hey guys, preorders for “The Book Of Five Rings” series is available on denimio with a shipping date of June 2020. Anyone else excited? I’m really anxious to see what I can do with the “Void” edition. That will be my first pair of 511’s, hopefully the fit works.

@smittydadon saw that in an email. Will look closer, but there's a lock on my wallet. I think the 511 is a great slim cut, and judging from your previous posts, it would suit your frame well. I had a pair of S511XX 25oz in a 33, but they were WAAAAYYYY too tight. I could button them, but could barely walk. A 34 might have been better, but I'm not really made for slim cuts like that. I'm currently wearing TFH 3202 20oz in 34 and it's a serious daily struggle. I think the 511 is a slightly better slim cut. It has just a little more rise and a better fitting top block, at least for me.

@mpukas Thanks , my S710 are a 31 tagged waist , I think I’m going to try a 30 in the Void series. Hopefully it works out lol. 

Oh and apologies everyone that June 2020 date is for the Void series .

Book of Fire Series is slated for February 2020 (right around the corner) 

and Book Of Wind Series is scheduled for April 2020. 

 

After further review I really like the Book Of Wind series as well.. but I don’t see myself getting two different pairs so I’m going to stick with Void.

Interested in the Book of Fire... The details look great and the cut should work for me if I don't size down...

@Cold Summer awesome Kyle! I keep thinking I need to get a pair of 710. The specs look like they'd suit me well.

Hey guys, does anyone have experience with the standard 21oz sammys? Is it similar in feel to the 19oz zero denim? I have had the 510s in 24oz left hand twill denim before (limited model) they were very different to the standard 19oz 710s I have.

I think they have a similar look and feel but the 21oz is noticeably stiffer and took longer to soften up.

One year update on my S5000vx 25oz 20th anniversary sammys. One soak no wash and they have been in light rotation for about a year.

Some detail shots of my Samurai 17oz WWII denim jacket. I think it’s the same as the Zero denim, should be a good fader!

Thanks @MJF9I really wanted a jacket with a flapless pocket. The length from bottom of the collar is about 26 inches and the denim is awesome.

was going through my closet and found some old denim. thought the fades looked cool and that maybe some folks on here would appreciate them.

here are a pair of 5000BKs that i bought in late 2006, right when i was getting into raw denim.

here's what they looked like in 2007:

here are pair of 5000VXs that i bought in late 2007 or early 2008.

these were worn hard for quite a few years and are probably my favorite jeans that i've ever owned. unfortunately they're really falling apart at this point and aren't wearable anymore.

@vgadjo Those look really cool. I would definitely buy a pair of blk 710s if Samurai came out with them.

I got a pair of black 710's a few years ago and they're one of my favorite pairs.  I was recently thinking of posting a picture of them, but just saw @vgadjo's pair and realize I have a few years of wear to go...

@Tangem2 - Very nice. I wasn't clear whether the measurements posted by OD were raw or one washed...
