Just Released - Samurai Jeans S5000KA Kakishibu Dyed

About a month and a half ago, NYC denim shop Blue In Green released a very exclusive piece from Samurai Jeans, the S5000BKB Black x Black “Zero” Denim.

Unsurprisingly, both parties continue to not disappoint. Just over one week ago, the denim shop posted several new items from Samurai Jeans, most notably the electrifying and heavyweight S5000KA.

For this special denim, Samurai Jeans used an original 24 Oz. denim that has been hand-dyed with Kakishibu, an all natural dye fermented from the juice of unripe persimmions. Interestingly enough, according to Blue In Green, it’s the very first time a denim this heavy has been dyed with Kakishibu.

    Someday I’ll be able to reasonably afford these. I’ll be excited once I get my hand on a pair. I can’t wait to see a intensely worn in pair.

    It isn’t a dye it’s a tannin, FYI. Real kakishibu needs to be tanned in sunlight to darken over time.

    Really interesting colour, too bad it comes with a $725 price tag. It’s kind of a bummer that so much of raw denim culture currently is pushing towards more and more expensive jeans. 

    Obviously there are more affordable brands out there, but I guess part of the cache of an article of clothing like this is it’s exclusivity factor.
