    s5000bk like cardboard and black like me, love it

    what is your opinion on a slubby black jean?

    i always was curious about this and pbj xx005 in black,
    but i always figured that black jean looks best when it is a sheeny, clean, non-slubby jean.


    is this really unique looking?



    and for the samurai, i am going for a relaxed jean look. no slim so 710 may be out for me.

    Why do you want another pair of jeans? What makes you want Samurais?

    you want overdyed denim? if you want 'eye popping' check out some julian reds or some ksubis... I'm just confused because what you just described has almost nothing to do with sams...

    i dont think Samurais will do that as their intent isnt necessarily to be "eye popping and fascinating"

    maybe something by Mr Freedom then? now THOSE are "eye popping"

    I love my S500VX. I wish I could get the same exact cut in a lighter weight denim. As it is, they are only good for the colder months.

    honestly the only pair of jeans that I've ever worn that have been 'noticed' are my sexscs... someone asked if I needed a lint roller because my jeans were covered in lint =/

    No offense, but it seems like you are just hopping up the denim ladder shoe... You need to seriously ask yourself what you want in a jean.

    Black buttons and crazy slub, they actually do stand out and are pretty versatile. Love wearing them in the cooler months bc they're like armor. Straight cut too, size down one they stretch a lot.

    i have the 610's (low rise model) - i know it's not for all but on my build it's perfect and it doesn't look too low at all.

    the second generation texas cotton denim is excellent and i can already see the lighter white spot poking up at the creases. this is only after a month.

    i was on the hunt for lower rise japanese with slubby denim, and i tried the pbj's but the fit was all wrong. the rise was too high in front compared to the back. the thigh and knee was too skinny for how loose the top block was and the bootcut was horrendous.

    what's wrong with the first generation?

    you have to wear a jean for a few weeks to even appreciate it though... are you trying to build a good rotation? and if you want to get noticed, look at the SExSCs or some JRs

    yeah the sexsc is very nice. i had the okinawas once and i was amazed by them but did not like the repro fit.
    i hope the 5000bk sammie is amazing but not as reproish as the scs.

    i never looked into julian red

    julian red supposedly has some of the best/most eye catching washes. I've never owned or tried on one of their washes though.

    my question is this: what specifically appeals to you about samurais that you cannot find in another brand? is it the cut, the denim (texas cotton), the color? lots of the high end brands make raw jeans. I know they aren't most expensive brand, but I don't like to see someone constantly losing money on puchases =/

    I dont know if Julian Red has enough "pedigree" for Sho'nuff since he's just been into expensive japanese brands lately...but as you mentioned, it's hard to figure out what he wants exactly, other than "eye catching and decadent"
