It’s very common for brands to partner together with other brands or stores and the results are almost always interesting and unique. This time around Samurai Jeans has partnered together with the NYC Japanese specialty denim store, Blue in Green, to produce an exclusive jean.
The Black Hawk jean utilizes Samurai‘s unsanforized “Zero” black denim and weighs in at 17 oz. before an initial soak. For anyone who has black denim, you’ll know that it usually requires more time and harder wear to achieve the same fades as indigo jeans. However, with the Black Hawk denim, the warp is rope-dyed so the core of the yarn is undyed which will give similar fading characteristics as indigo denim.
The selvedge ID features both a red and silver lamé which in true Samurai fashion is described as representing “bleeding passion of the samurai’s soul and the gleam of the razor sharp sword which he possesses”.
As you’d expect from two well known denim names, the details doesn’t stop with just the fabric. The threads and hardware are all black and the pocket bags are made of black herringbone fabric. The leather patch is also dyed black with silver embossing. As these jeans get worn and age, the uniform look of the jean will give way to contrasted fades that are uncommon with black denim.
