Our Zero 17oz tight tapered model.
The tight tapered silhouette has a shallow inseam, and is tight from the waist to the crotch, further narrowing down towards the hem.
Featuring our 17oz Bushido selvedge denim, this material is created from our hard-textured and slubby #5 yarn, woven on an old-fashioned shuttle loom. Even though it’s a relatively heavy denim with a strong, rough feel, you can look forward to high-contrast fades and alternating areas of light and dark in the fabric as it fades.
The thin crescent moon on the flasher, along with Musashi’s slender forearms and meant to represent the “zero” state of swords being drawn and each warrior stares at the other, ready to strike like lightning.
Other details include an exclusive flasher, the iron pine tree buttons, copper coin-shaped rivets, the SAMURAI woven label, and our ‘Impermanence’ jaquard slake.
For the sewing, we’ve stuck mainly to two colors: original 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.
