A slim tapered model done in our 15oz Otokogi denim. Despite being a slim tapered cut, we’ve kept the crotch from being too shallow, and the strong crotch-to-hem taper means these jeans will look great, even in the shorter lengths. 


We’ve used our 15oz Otokogi denim for these, taking our slubby #6 cotton thread, leaving the little bits of cotton waste in the mix, and pushing the vintage looms to the limit. This gives these jeans a rough look and texture, while also allowing for those much-loved high contrast fades. 


The exclusive leather patch used here features a slim crescent moon representing the slim cut of the jeans themselves, while the two seagulls mark these as the successor to the S0511XX model. 


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: banana 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 “Kagemusha” (or Shadow Warrior) stitching, the stitching pattern appearing over time as the colors fade.
