Samurai 10oz "Hisho" Denim Western Shirt
Crouched in the shadows, the Hisho Western Shirt has snuck in! Samurai’s 10oz Western Shirt, is a classic Samurai staple piece, with all the consideration and charming detail the brand is known for.
Made from an irregular #10 yarn, giving the denim some lovely texture across the surface, this shirt is a fashionably slimmer-fit western shirt. Featuring cotton stitching across the garment, for a tough and hardy shirt, this piece is easy to dress up or wear casually. Constructed with their signature 10 oz silver ID selvage denim, the entire shirt has been skilfully single needle and chain stitched. With wear, you’ll see strong contrast ageing with a beautiful vertical appearance thanks to the many shades of indigo dye.
Hisho, when roughly translated means to secretly skulk about, like the very ninja themselves! This meaning informs the shirt’s touches. The yoke and pockets are designed to be like the samurai Katana blade, gleaming in the dark! When opened, underneath the Katana pocket, a shiny line of selvedge pops out, representing the sharp flash of light as the blade is drawn from its sheath.
Additional details include winding stitches for aesthetic flair and square-dot buttons that offset the cotton beautifully. Also of note is the sleeve selvedge detailing, juxtaposed excellently next to the snap buttons. Finally, a nut cat-eye button on the top button is a perfect finishing touch.
With time the precisely detailed arc-stitching will soulfully age, as will the snaps and wooden collar buttons, which will gradually become darker and much shinier. A truly charming patina!
Thanks to its mid-weight, you can comfortably wear this shirt throughout all seasons! Wear it how you like, as a jacket or even as an undershirt! Draw your blade and wear it with pride!
