Fade Friday – Samurai Jeans Co. S710XX (5 Months, 3 Washes)
Some say that a samurai’s most valuable possession is his sword. For Samurai Jeans Co., this sword just happens to come in the form of their S710XX jeans. Hailing from the mecca of awesome raw denim that is Japan, the S710XX (commonly known as 710’s) is an exceptional pair of jeans. Not only are they constructed with a unique method but they also come in a fantastic fit.
Worn and contributed by superdenim member werd, these jeans have only been put to work for 5 months but have nonetheless seen their fair share of action. The fade on these jeans is coming along ridiculously well for such a short period of time.
The whiskering is nearly perfect, the honeycombs are deep and defined, and the knee and seat areas show some great atari. It leaves one to wonder, just how hard do you really wear your jeans? Seriously, though, this guy’s got a crotch blowout on his jeans in only 5 months!
As for the jeans themselves, the Samurai S710XX jeans are constructed from 19oz. raw selvedge denim that is woven with an irregular 5th thread approach. The white core yarn is dyed with a pure indigo color to help it really pop and give them an interesting texture.
Levi’s influenced arcs & pocket tab (on the Japanese models), and leather patch along with the selvedge ID make these jeans pretty memorable. After taking a look at the way that these jeans broke in, it comes as no surprise that they would happen to be Samurai’s most popular model (outside Japan, that is).
