Samurai Jeans 25oz 15th Anniversary Denim Jacket (S552XX)

≈Samurai Jeans 25oz 15th Anniversary Denim Jacket (S552XX)

Surpassing their 15th year of operation, some may still scratch their head when hearing of Samurai Jeans. On one hand they are one of the most admired, respected brands in the raw denim space, but on the other they are near-illusive and difficult to obtain given their small handful of stockists outside of Japan.

Regardless of where you stand, it’s tough to argue that the Osaka-based company does not seize to impress with the wares they produce season after season. Case in point: their 25 Oz. 15th Anniversary Denim Jacket (S552XX). Despite being washed once, the S552XX possesses all the core qualities of a denim jacket – sturdy construction, purposeful hardware, clean fit – while still oozing an iconic look reminiscent of the Levi’s Type II Jacket.

Of course we would be remiss not to dig into the fine details of the piece. The jacket is finished with the traditional Samurai silver-gold selvedge, which is meant to represent a traditional samurai sword; and the garment itself utilizes the same Zero Selvedge denim fabric that we saw in the S5000VX 17 Oz. and related commemorative pieces.

    In what point is this 25oz denim the “same Zero Selvedge denim fabric that we saw in the S5000VX 17 Oz.” ?

    This jacket uses a new 25oz denim and the S500VX uses Samurai’s old 17oz (Zero/VX) denim and even Samurai doesn’t say anything about a similarity. They are complete different denims in many aspects

      LOL. Maybe they both use the same selvage ID? Just guessing to give the benefit of the doubt.

      • yada

        No they don’t.
        And even then, every denim from Levi’s would be “the same” than any other brands that uses red selvedge ID (like Eternal and many more)

    25oz denim looks tasty…the price is more than i can bare Im afraid.

  • whorebucks

    That price is absurd.

  • Oberon

    I have this most excellent jacket and love it… Yes the price is a bit spendy but if you are looking for a very substantial type 2 this jacket is at the top of the heap in my book… Works for me…
