The Official Samurai Denim and Apparel Thread

This isn't true. Vertical fades are from the vertical lines of un-even slub that run up and down the leg and actually fade faster than the rest of the lap.


So samurais will have the vertical fade lines

It depends on what he was referring to. I thought he was referring to when you see that single vertical crease line. With what you are talking about, yeah, every denim will get that, but slubby denim will get them sooner because of the direction the slub runs in and the fact that it is raised.

Sizing question, I have dukes in a tag size 29 which are a 30, those fit me good, for s710's I have read they shrink around an inch in the waist? So would a tag size 30 which is a 31 pre soak going to fit good down the road considering the stretch they will give, or is a tag size 29 ( pre soak 30) going to be better? Sorry for the confusing question I just dont want to mess up this

They are STF. Just get your tagged size or size down 1 if you are a skinny mofo.

Yeah, I agree. The shrinkage after a few washes will actually be closer to 2" in the waist, and these will stretch, so TTS should be good.

Yeah, they stretch a lot. They can stretch back to raw size and often even beyond.


lies, my 710s shrink but don't stretch out that much. So do my S0500

710bk 2 years+

BIG had these a while ago when there was a levi lawsuit going on. Don't they have these anymore? Im pretty sure all the 710s from lot 13 have a white tap.

Nov 27, 2010 @ 17:31
Really? Is Lot13 the current lot? So if I buy them from BiG as of right now, I will get white tabs?
Nov 27, 2010 @ 18:49
I think you just got lucky TK. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, lot13 is black arcs and a red tab. The white tab however, has the upsidedown A in "sAmurai" meaning that the pair is limited edition.

Im pretty sure the white tab was the first set from lot 13, when everyone thought samurais wouldnt have arcs anymore. Most people that got them from BiG when they first came out got white tabs, when i was there this summer all of their 710's had white tabs and everything else tab/arc-less like normal.

The fried is box; the box is fried.

For a short while earlier this year, Samurai stopped doing red tabs and only did white tabs in the wake of the Levi's lawsuit. Now they are back to red tabs.

I agree, I think 17 oz. might be the ideal denim weight for me.

I've had no problems wearing up to 21 oz. denim in the summer, and I live in inland Southern California, where temperatures average in the high 80s and low 90s during that season. Any heavier than that, though, and it does get a bit rough.

I will admit, though, that on the days when it gets over 100 here, I can't wear any jeans at all, regardless of denim weight. On those days, you feel too hot even in shorts.
