"Unrivaled in West Japan" (Saigoku Musou) - A rather fitting title for the Samurai Tachibana Muneshige, who served under multiple clans and armies during the 1600s. Due to his active role in the Kyushu conquest by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, he was made a Daimyo (feudal lord) in the Yanagawa area of Kyushu, with 130,000 warriors under his control. Later in life, he became a Ronin (masterless Samurai) after his territory was confiscated for joining the Western Army during the Battle of Sekigahara. Despite this setback, he was eventually reinstated as a Daimyo by the Shogun Tokugawa Hidetada, who recognized his military prowess and sincerity. Continuing their heavyweight denim series in recognition of Japan's most revered warriors, the latest "Saigoku Musou" Jeans by Samurai clock in at a dizzying 25oz. Details include gold "Matsunoki" metal buttons and custom arranged contrast stitching, with our favorite feature being the "Wind and Thunder God" artwork used for the pocket bags.
