Samurai 18oz S101AX "Indigo Plus" Cowboy Denim Jacket

Size Guide
We know one of the most sought after denim jacket styles is that vintage LEE styled cowboy type 1 denim jacket. Here we have a re-imagination of this classic by the skilful craftsmen of Samurai!

Samurai specially develop this 18oz slubby textured denim for a future stronger fade. For this denim, the warp has been initially grand indigo yarn-dyed then natural indigo over-dyed more than 10 times! The final result is this denim will age like some grand indigo-dyed denim and appear more vibrant shades of indigo like some natural indigo-dyed denim at the same time! Take a look at the navy selvage id hidden in the chest pocket!

With tasteful, vintage-inspired front pleats and 'LEE' styled chest pocket, this is a great choice for a unique denim look. The iron 'samurai' detailed buttons add contrast and will oxidise with time. Use the backside adjusters to customise the fit to your liking!

If you're keen to try some natural indigo denim still fade to some big contrasted look, this is an amazing choice!

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.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.
