Samurai Jeans

Recommended Posts

yeah ive been wearing diors for about a year ive had both the 21s and the 19s, I want something a bit looser now, still unsure about which waist size to go for though, im leaning towards the 33 so they can stretch and not be too loose.

and with regards to the actual denim ive had lots of of jap repro jeans before my diors..

You're going to want a wash, a soak, something, which will shrink 'em. Wearing samurais raw is a bad idea.

Thought i would post some pics of the fit on my old sz 30 710's just for fun. I sold them, so don't worry. Every time i look at them i cant help but laugh. I think i win the, 'most hip flair on a pair of jeans' award. The side view / sillhouette isnt terrible though.

Yeah. I almost bought the 710's in a 29 today, but they still looked so big around the thighs that i decided not to. Too bad. I really wanted some samurais.

Here some pictures of my 710s one month old, please excuse my lack of a full length mirror and shitty photography skills. Don't think I like them sagged, just trying something new.

size 32 lot 10

it would be so cool if samurai's response to the no arcs issue was simply putting those "hidden usa" arcs on all their jeans.

i pre-ordered them in a size 31 true waist 32. Judging from the indigo lot 10's I think this will give me the fit I desire.

This wait blows though. Original ETA mid march and now it's late april.

I don't mean to sound like the only asshole in the samurai thread but am I the only person who doesnt like the hidden arcs? I like the way the arcs wear over time, falling off, leaving tid bits etc etc. But if this is the only way around the levis suit then fk it I'll buy.

I don't care for them either. Once was original, but that was enough.

BiG USAs, and apparently the 710BKs

only thing I dislike about the hidden arcs is that the pocket lining gets creases in the back pockets and makes random fade lines aside from the arc fades. This is probably mostly due to the fact that I'm not carrying a wallet in my pocket at the moment.

^ Word. I saw the samples that originally had the outside arcs and I was stoked seeing as how the 510 is my favorite cut. Oh well, I'm planning on ordering the s5000XX anyway :crosses fingers for another texas cotton success:

Do any of you guys w/ USA's have issues with the cinchback pinching or being uncomfortable?

I think I read in the original Sammie thread that one dude removed his because of pinching.

I was very reluctant to get the USA's because of the cinchback. Turns out it actually looks great and I havent had any issues with it at all. I still havent washed them, but I think that might be comming soon. LOVE THEM.

Ps. I cant get the darn pics I took to work, if someone gives me some advice I can get them up.

I'm less than a month in on mine, but they are looking very promising already.

I haven't had any issue with the cinchback, and like how it looks.
