Some really nice looking new releases from Samurai-

"Two styles of 10 ozselvedge western shirts with Kimono fabric trims and selvedge details make it onto the final table; one with an arched designs on the yokes and yellow stitching as well as another with a more conservative angled design on the yoke with orange stitching. Note that both shirts are once washed so shrinking will be minimal.

With their new jackets, Samurai strays away from their usual denim jacket styles and instead offer a denim flight jacket as well as a mountain parka that both use a 10 oz. waterproofed denim and a heavyweight selvedge chino inner lining. The flight jacket features a wool blend ribbing at the collar, cuffs, and waist plus indigo dyed leather trims.

The parka features plenty of pockets including a backside pocket as well as an adjustable drawstring. It’ll be interesting to see how these jackets will look as people wear them over time since there is a limited sample size of non-trucker or western styled denim jackets.”
