SuperFuture has a denim contest in which 30 people from all over the world started rocking a pair of limited edition Samurai S0500XX on November 1st, 2006. In a year they will compare results and there will be an open voting on who got the dopest wear. The winner will get a free pair Samurai.
The contest denims are super nice, very stubby, thick and heavy, and they’re made with special Texas cotton. The jeans in the contest are a special batch, but Samurai also made them for general distribution. I tried them on at Self Edge and they were awesome… 2000dB is getting a website up and running, it will have blogs and pics and stuff, there is also a thread on SuperFuture with pics and updates.
digital_denim, contestant #2 from San Francisco, gave me his contest jeans for a proper photoshoot. These got about 1 month of wear on them. I tried my best to capture the wear and the details of the jeans… The following is an embedded slideshow of the pics.
