豊天(ぶてん)ジーンズ Buden Jeans

蜘蛛の糸

Bought a new pair of jeans lately while exploring Tressa Yokohama recently. Tressa is a new openly departmental store a little bit further in from Tsunashima station along the Toyoko line. It’s spacious and littered with seats so it’s possible to do the “buy-food-sit-and-eat” maneuver.

Anyway, I entered this clothing store. I think it’s called METHOD. They carried lots of Japanese-styled clothes. Fancy t-shirts with embroideries. You might to check them out at a local reseller (just click コチラ). This pair of jeans was on sale and I picked it up. It’s a pretty cool pair. On the left, there’s a painting of a famous story about compassion. This is the Buddhist version (there are other versions).

蜘蛛の糸

In Japan, the story is called 「蜘蛛の糸」(くものいと), or a spider’s thread. If you’re interested, you can find the Japanese version here and the English translation here. I’ve read it before when I was much younger in a comic book about Zen.

蜘蛛の糸

A murderous criminal in hell was offered an escape by Buddha via a spider’s thread because his only good deed in life was sparing the life of a tiny spider. While he was climbing up, he noticed his hellmates climbing up after him. He shouted, “This is mine! Let go of It!”. *snap* went the spider thread and everyone fell back into hell. Morale of the story? Don’t kill spiders. ^^. If you look at the painting closely, you’ll see Buddha on top holding out a line and skeletons below climbing up. A new addition to my jeans collection. It’s pretty neat don’t you think?
