We know we can’t wear jeans all the time, but to folks like us (the fades-obsessed) it’s hard to hang up our favorite pair and throw on something “nice” for dressier occasions. Thank god for Samurai, whose SJ42DP 17oz Heavyweight Selvedge Denim Trousers can give us the best of both worlds – fades and respectability in formal situations!
This heavy, once-washed denim has more than enough character to keep you interested and a tasteful hem would cut off the extra exposed weft-side, making this a dead ringer for a more conventional cotton twill chino. A low to mid-rise keeps the top block a more conventional everyday fit than your typical suit pants. Samurai rounds out this classic trouser with a Hollywood waist, slash pockets, a button fly, and welt pockets in back. If you want to preserve that classic look Samurai has designed, then be sure to maintain that chino hem when you alter these, otherwise the roping might give you away as the jeans freak you really are.
This made-in-Japan goodness bridges two worlds and can keep you fading, even at the office.
Available for $285 at Blue in Green.
