This is a 19oz slim straight model.
These jeans have a moderate tapered feel, with a rise that is not too shallow and a generous thigh, making it an easy-to-wear silhouette that looks good on pretty much everyone.
The denim used here is our 19oz Kiwami denim, which is created on a vintage shuttle loom by pounding together slubby #5 thread for the warp and slubby #4 thread for the weft. This denim has the hardest texture of all of our original fabrics and produces incredible fades.
The half-moon on the patch shows that these jeans are slimmer than the regular model, while the thick forearms on the warriors show that these are made from our beefy 19oz denim. Other details include an exclusive flasher, the iron sunrise buttons, copper coin-shaped rivets, the SAMURAI woven label, and our ‘Impermanence’ jaquard slake.
For the sewing, we’ve stuck mainly to two colors: original yellow and golden brown, with the stitch count, needle count, and stitch width all varied according to each part of the jeans to bump these up to the next level of attention to detail.
The arcs on the back pockets represent seagulls in flight, done in dark blue stitching, the stitching pattern appearing over time as the colors fade.
