Hi guys,

I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but where do you guys purchase your sammys? Do they ever have sales? I've only seen them on BiG (and obscure Japanese sites). Should I just buy them at retail on BiG or are there occasional sales if i'm patient?

 

Thanks

BiG is the only retailer in the US that carries them. the popular models rarely, if ever, go on sale. otherwise there's pairs on ebay occasionally and B&S forums if you're ok with purchasing second hand.

if you are patient you might get a deal from someone who has sizing issues. as ysb mentioned unlikely for the popular models in big to ever go on sale.

aw man, thanks for the reply. everyone seems to have samurais with the back pocket stitching, but I don't see any on BiG with it

just buy from BiG. you'll be happy with the result

IIRC Sammies never goes on sale - second hand from forums or eBay is your best bet for discount.  You can try Rakuten or using a proxy to get Sammies from Japan if you are game.  Otherwise stick to BIG if you are local and able to try before you buy.

BiG will put some of the limited models on sale from time to time if they are trying to close them out, but you are right, the standard, ongoing models like the 710 or S5000 never really go on sale.

The grade B stuff seems to be basically new stuff. I haven't ordered from here though, so I'm not sure how the shipping works.



On a side note, anyone got s5000vx (21oz) lot 13 sizing info (not current lot 14)? Thinking about sizing down from the IH 634s. I have about an inch+ of extra room in the waist I could go down in, and I am looking for a little bit slimmer fit.

Hi, can anyone comment the different fading characteristics of the LX-RR and if they'll be as good as the typical awesome Sammy jawnz

S0610LX-RR

 

Thanks

I bought a pair of preowned Samurais from Kind-U once and had a good experience with them. The pair of jeans in question still had the tags attached and appeared to have never been worn, washed, or soaked. They were a limited edition model and were missing the LE box, but considering that they were essentially a brand new pair of jeans for almost 40% off retail, I have no complaints.

Shipping with Kind-U works the same as shipping from any Rakuten store.
