1997. Osaka, Japan. Toru Nogami (Nogami-san) births a warrior from a warrior—jeans called “Samurai” that live up to their name. Years after numerous brands had swept the Japanese denim scene in the late seventies and early eighties Nogami-san’s Samurai jeans began to take the raw denim world by storm, first making cuts inspired by vintage Levi’s jeans. Beginning with a relatively heavy weight denim of 15oz, graduating to a 17oz denim; Nogami-san has since created jeans made of 21 and even 24oz denim. This is exactly what these jeans are—warriors. The leather patch depicts a legendary samurai battle that took place on a remote Japanese island in 1612 between sword-wielding icons Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojiro. Musashi won the battle between swordsmen but the legend lives on in the tradition and honor to create such strong jeans.
