Samurai 25oz "Kirinji" WWII Denim Jacket
Samurai have delivered another special edition of a 25oz denim jacket, inspired by one of the legendary Samurai warriors of the Sengoku era, Yukimori Yamanaka a.k.a "Kirinji" (child prodigy). Famously born under the harvest moon, Kirinji's helmet bore the crescent moon, and this association has been commonly represented in artistic depictions.
The 25oz denim has been slowly woven using vintage machines which have been specially engineered to handle this ultra-heavyweight denim. The surface is surprisingly super smooth and has a subtle raised feeling. Thanks to the grand indigo yarn dyeing process which has been repeated many times you will see amazingly strong fades like the slash marks of a sharp samurai blade.
In true vintage WWII style, this one features tall box stitches across the front pleats and a 'flapless' chest pocket with over stitching. Samurai introduced a selvage peep, usually never seen at all in vintage examples! So Cool! Instead of a 5 button closure, this one features four doughnut-style buttons of course customised with Samurai symbols. The rear cinch back is tastefully simple and free of detailing. For a surprise when undone, the cinch strap features selvage detailing... imagine the samurai drawing his blade from his side!
This is a very special WWII style, if you're a serious denim fan, we bet you'll be impressed!
