Samurai really out here naming their jeans after a Momoyama period samurai and we are 1000% percent on board. Known as the S5000VX25oz-TM 25oz “Saigoku-Musou” which translates to “best samurai in west Japan” after Tachibana Muneshige, the jeans are as much like a legendary samurai as possible.
Coming in at a whopping 25 oz., these raw selvedge jawns are like wearing multiple pairs of jeans at once making them super-resilient, similar to how it would take multiple dudes to fight this samurai for it to be a fair fight. That’s how cool he was and I would know because I’ve met him. And by met him I mean I’ve seen these magnificent jeans which have iron buttons, copper rivets, and an extra special pocket bag design.
Featuring all the fixings that you would ever need from a pair of raw Japanese denim and coming in the S5000 straight-leg fit that is legendary in the raw denim scene — although they don’t seem very approachable at first — you just need some honor, bravery, and maybe some expert katana skills and you’ll do okay.
