Samurai are back with a pair of exceptionally slubby 17oz. Selvedge, skein dyed in Kakishibu (persimmon fruit). Leaving the weft undyed gives the fabric a particularly light hue of brown which along with the assault of texture, couples beautifully with the construction details carefully selected for this special edition model.

Kakishibu has a deep-rooted history in Japanese craft culture & tradition, dating back to the early 13th century when it was first introduced to Japan from China. Annually in late August, unripe persimmon are harvested as their tannin or juice is extracted. Used as a multi-solution tool, Kakishibu was used to cure hangovers, for wood lacquering and even as a clearing agent for sake, to name only a few of the varied applications of the historic dye. 

Along with the custom "Shogun Ieyasu" leather patch celebrating one of Japan's most prolific figures, Samurai have featured their seldom seen gold "Matsunoki" metal button hardware for this special model.

*Model is pictured wearing a size 30. He weighs 75kg (165 pounds) and is 175cm (5'10") tall.
