Japan Blue Momotaro

Could anyone tell me if the context collab has the pink stitching? I can't quite tell from the pics and its hard to get responses from those guys.

Which of the two collabs?

The last one does not feature pink inseam.

Ah yes the second one. I guess I didn't look hard enough. Thank you sir.

Hi, if you're looking for a nonsanforized that fits like a left field greaser, try the Momotaro 0201 slim straight. They're my two favorite styles to wear.

He said he didn't want pink inseam and he didn't say anything about LF...

Yup...he mentioned on the LF forum he was interested in non Sanforized that fit similar to a LF greaser...sorry, missed the pink inseam comment. Just my 2 cents.

I've actually considered that cut. It does seem perfect for me. I really like momotaro's price point and quality but can't get around the pink stitching. I'm trying to go 17oz at least for my next pair as well. But thanks for the suggestion, I may end up getting a pair down the line.

'been constantly pm'ed regarding why i have been sizing up when partially/fully sanforized denim does not shrink much, if at all ;)  .... so here's the ultimate/ comprehensive fit pix__ from right after initial double soak to current status [ie, 3yrs+ down the line = multiple washes]

Need some sizing advice for the 0201

 

I really like the taper and slim measurements on on the leg. It's not too skin tight, but is still slim enough.

My only problem is with the rise. I really don't like low rise very much. Does JB have anything with similar measurements with a higher rise?

you won't find the slim-taper x highrise fit you're looking for that's  around the 201 dimensions   

check out the G004/0014 "Copper Label" models ... they're slim-tapered, but roomier @thigh.

Bought this Momotaro 8oz. Selvedge Jail Pocket Shirt in size 46 from Okayama Denim.  I normally wear XL size shirts in most American brands and wear XXL or XXXL Iron Heart Shirts.  The fit of this size 46 is perfect.  Slim but not overly tight with a good vertical length.  I'm 6'3" so I often have issues with shirt back lengths from Japanese denim brands.

I have a barely used size 36 BOM-003 for trade, looking for another indigo/black, preferably 3sixteen st/sl 120x in size 34.  The BOMs have been soaked and hemmed to 34 inches.  Probably less than one day's wear total on them.  Still have tags.  Love the BOMs, just can't seem to make the low rise work.

There's a thread stickied in superdenim that explains the process. Also, these types of questions go in the small questions thread :)

Shot some pictures of my 0701. Since the 2nd wash (after about 1 year of active wear) i've been washing them regularly about every 3 weeks. The cotton stitching is not holding up great, here and there are some loose threads.

The crotch has been reenforced by Mr. Handy Denim Repair in Groningen.

The Vintage range really throws up some beautiful worn-in denim.

While I've never actually seen or owned vintage label Momos, I am of the opinion that it has to be one of the most underrated fabrics around. I hardly ever see anyone bring it up, and it's a truly beautiful thing when faded in, it seems.

My 0201s are showing their first fades. Love the fabric.

 

From what i can see though I'm a little afraid its going be another pre-mature crotch blow-out.

How long have you been wearing those Crat?

Approx .twice a week for 3.5 months?

You could fold the jeans so you just wash the crotch. Get all the crap and leftover starch out. Should soften and tighten up a bit so they last longer.

Love the slubs and denim structure. Momos are really not getting the attention round here that they deserve.

2 years ago or so, Momos had a lot of attention...it comes and goes again.

 

Right now Fullcount gets a lot more attention than the previous years (and it is also deserved)
