If you were asked to imagine the ultimate pair of jeans, would any of the following criteria apply?
- Raw denim
- Heavy weight
- Chain stitched
- Natural Indigo
- Fades well
If you answered any or all of the above, good news! While at this point they’re not quite a fresh release, Japanese denim giant Samurai Jeans Co. offers a pair of jeans that fit all of the above characteristics.
With the S5000AI 24 oz. model, Samurai has combined all of the elements that make their jeans so popular into one awesome pair of denim. Starting with their signature S5000 straight fit, the Osaka-based company has created an extra-heavy 24 oz. denim using cotton that has been hand-dyed in all-natural indigo.
Natural indigo is known for it’s brighter shade of blue and many denim heads consider it to produce better fades than synthetic dyes. The AI in the model name comes from aizome, the Japanese name for the natural indigo hand-dyeing process.
This natural dye, coupled with Samurai’s beloved heavyweight denim and their eye for quality makes for a winning combination that, in our opinion, is worth the steeper price tag.
