    now that CR's service is done, I thought I would see if anyone actually picked up some black denim or could help me in my search.

    They don't have to only be a black raw, but it would be nice. Does 5EP do a black denim or any other easily obtainable brands besides rag and bone?

    thanks

    Blue in Green will have the black raw Samurai coming in soon. Not incredibly easy to obtain, but they do do mail order. That'd be my choice if I wanted to go black (well, that or the black overdyed sorahiko).

    I had NO idea that 5EP came in black...

    5EP straight definitely wasn't tight when I tried them (wasn't ridiculously loose either). The bootcuts are the tigher of the 2 cuts. I'd say they are worth it (i'd still go Samurai though). The denim on my 5EP is pretty damn impressive.

    Waiting is your only option! I prefer the look of said Sammies due to the black stitching.

    I want those Sorahikos pretty bad. I was torn between those and the Sammies. The Way of the Samurai is one of immediacy, and it is best to dash in headlong.

    I got the black raw denime 66 from coldrice. I love the denim - black with the white weft - but I wish the cut were a tad slimmer. I know SDA does a black denim with the same cut as the sd-103 (d-292?) That would be worth checking out. The Denime is priced pretty reasonably.

    i was thinking about getting the somets, but they look pretty tight. Any idea on the fit of the S5000BK?

    They do phone orders, and I think most of their Samurai stuff goes for $285.
