And breathe INNNN...

Japan Blue JB0206 14oz, one wash. Went true to size. Don't mind the fit as I was after a slim pair of slow fading jeans for work, but the waist is still snug after 4-5 weeks. Would probably choose differently if i was to buy again but hey ho.

Oh I so love those jeans

 

why don't they come in size 22"!!

awesome Momotaros!

 

Looking forward to my 2 pairs of 22.5oz, if you want to be pedantic theyre not Made by Japan a Blue, but the denim comes from Collect -the Japan Blue Group mill and is indentical-same for the 2 pairs of 10oz double indigo denim!

cant decide which to have cut first..still only on day 8 next of the 14oz...

 

Those Collect Mill 22oz in 22!  Post a pic when available!  Those will be fun to break in, but def worth it.

Sadly my Momotaros are now so loose after 15 months of wear, they're really unwearable, I can only wear them if I put on some weight, or if I don't have anything else that fits-luckily I've got 2 pairs of Diesels for the summer, but I'm not sure what I'll be wearing next winter..

My 0306v after approx. 45 days of actual wear. And a non intentional rinse in a New York City Flash Flood last Friday..! Progress coming along nicely. Plenty of indigo left. Happy mondays!

First soak in Luke warm water!

75+ days wear. Medium fades and don't want to wait for it to get too sharp. Can't wait to see how it's going to turn out.

Noticed you like the sda 107 cut too. The sda 107 and 103 are my favourite cuts in slim and straight jeans. The momo 705 cut is my favourite in between (as a slim/straight).

But it's tighter in the crotch area than sda jeans. Tried it already?

Shame you can't find a fit that would work for you. 

At first I wasn't impressed with my copper label pair (apart from the fantastic detailing and the shade of indigo), but after it's first machine wash, the denim lost its crispness and softened up nicely, and i've grown to like the fit. I've started wearing them again.

Wearing my Momotaros again although too big-now my oldest jeans(bought March 2016, I think they'll hit the 2 year mark, 3 years depends on how well the a Diesel,Black Gold jeans fit and also how long I'm in summer jeans for...

Hi guys, i am interested in momotaro DE002 later, i am 170cm and weighs 69kg, in the size one wash table: i can expect the waist to be stretched from 32.7 to 33.3, and the thigh can stretch from 12.4 to 12,6 no, if it is, it is perfectly suited to me, i say momotaro does not stretch much, please help me ^^

You should also ask Denimio for sizing support.  They are very helpful.

The Momotaro SJ011 Railway worker cap. One of few caps that work well with my long fluffy hair. Will be cool to see how this will look in a couple of years.

Mistral!! I'm glad to see you here. Yeah, I've been away for a long time too. I see you still can't stay away from the Momotaro. I'm planning to get some 0306v for my next cold weather pair.

As promised: G014-MB in CopperLabel denim.  What's really the incentive on this particular model is that, the silhouette is quite similar to my EW-0110 ... w/c fit I seem to favor ATM.

Fitpix to follow when I get back from vacay.

I'm way late on this, Brown, but you're gonna love the vintage Copper label denim. It's totally unlike the standard 15.7oz Momo denim. It takes a lot longer to fade, it's lighter, stretchier and it's definitely more fragile (but you prob already figured all this out).

With extended wear it gets a damp,greasy feeling, unlike the "leathery" feeling of the 15.7. Anyway, the way you work on jeans though, I bet you'll get good results. Mine started to shred in the 3rd year of wear.. and I didn't get pictures.  Glad to see a veteran denimhead getting these on.

This is one of the most amazing documentaries on denim manufacture I've seen. Features Momotaro's production process from yarn to finished product. It's hypnotizing to watch too.
