SOURCES

ONLY source for SamuraI in North America:

Blue in Green Soho - www.blueingreensoho.com
(note that back pocket stitching and tabs will NOT be present on the jeans in this store (some exceptions apply))

Gordon is extremely helpful (and patient). This is your only chance of buying jeans and having a remote chance of returning them if they don't fit. BiG offers a One-wash service if you don't want to soak your jeans yourself. They also offer a chainstitching service to shorten the inseam length.

Japan:

Most of the stores in Japan DO NOT ship outside of Japan. For information on proxies and shipping, see the Proxy Thread or the Options for Buying Japanese Goods thread.

2nd - ships internationally, but restrictions apply. Jeans, Jackets, Other.

Americaya

Klax-on

THE ONLY OPTION FOR ACQUIRING SAMURAI JEANS WITH BACK-POCKET STITCHING AND A RED TAB IS TO ORDER THEM FROM JAPAN*. BiG DOES NOT* SELL MODELS WITH THESE FEATURES.

I think its slighty cheaper through getting a proxy but it might take a while to ship, and shipping can cost alot but shouldnt affect much

possibly duty taxes and brokerage fees could offset the pricing between BiG and 2nd but still I think second is a better choice. I dont think you get hit with big fees anyway snce 2nd lowers the declared value.

my first pair of raw denim will probably be the 0500 true to size smokeyface i was initially looking into the 710, but i think they'd be a little too tight on me. it's only about a one inch difference in the thigh between the two i think, but that is also a pre-wash measurement.

i've gone through 90 pages of the samurai thread on sufu so far and those have impressed me the most.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it
