Samurai S003JP Denims (Slim Tapered fit)

S003JP is quite a pair of jeans that classic and unique at the same time. It belongs to the "Yamato" series of Samurai. "Yamato" is the name of Japan island before "Japan" is called "Japan". "Yamato" series is a concept created by Samurai Jeans that they want to do jeans that are purely "Made in Japan".

S003JP goes with a custom made 15oz silver selvedge denim. Like S0511XX, the silver selvedge is created by sterling silver thread which present the "sharpness of the samurai sword". SJ uses 100% Japanese cotton from Matsusaka. We don't need to explain how rare is Japanese cotton since Japan is such a small island. Matsusaka cotton is famous for its traditional Japanese garment making, Samurai is probably the only brand that use it for jeans making! It goes with a long fibre, silky texture and extra strength. Guarantee it is something that you have never ever seen before!

Apart from super unique fabrics, the jeans goes with some one of a kind details! Samurai means to create luxury and durable at the same time. They put their iconic silver thread for the whole construction of the denim! By whole construction, I mean including fly and belt loops! Plus, the back yoke and the whole rise part has been triple "silver thread" chain-stitched!

For "Yamato" series, Samurai wants to put traditional Japanese culture into every details. Sakura (cheery blossom) is the national flower of Japan. All the hardwares (rivets and buttons) are custom made into sakura shape with silver coatings. Through using, you will see the sakura flower "turn red" like the real sakura! To make sure this pair of jeans are 100% "Made in Japan", Samurai sources the finest "Wagyu" leather for the patch guarantee 10/10 yum yum level. The leather patch shows an ancient Japanese landscape with traditional Japanese painting style. Once it aged with jeans, the graphic will looked like a real "ancient painting". Even the paper flasher is using traditional Japanese paper, I mean talking about details, Samurai Jeans are some 100%!

There are just too many incredible details that we just can't tell you all! Most importantly, the jeans is in a decent modern low rise/slim tapered fit (not too skinny, not too baggy). This is most definitely a pair of everyday wear jeans for you!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.
