Japan Blue Momotaro

Recommended Posts

 

Hey chambo2008, here are the Momotaro/Blue in Green NI0705SP hand dyed natural indigo jeans; only 22 pairs were made. The tack buttons, posts and underside buttons are 925 Sterling Silver. The leather patch is hand dyed with natural indigo but has faded over time. To really geek out, the pocket bags are very substantial; the heaviest I’ve encountered with Momotaro logo embossed throughout. Dimensions are reasonable with a size 36 measuring: thigh 12.5”; knee 9.5”; LO 8.5”; inseam 35”. I purchased them in Fall, 2011 and have yet to break them in!

I have always admired 3 Japanese brands: the original R by 45RPM (I know, I know but I’m a fanboy and they will always be my favorite because of their unparalleled dedication to Ai indigo, they were a cult brand); Pure Blue Japan, which is a brand still producing beautiful Ai dyed and synth dyed indigo items as well as denim with wonderful texture; Momotaro, a brand that doesn’t seem to get the attention it deserves for its commitment to indigo dyeing. I have included a few videos of examples of the work Momotaro does for those who may not have seen them. I tried to con Gordon into ordering a pair of the jeans shown in the first video but no dice, they are only available to customers in person at their shop in Japan. The final two are of their dyeing technique.

@lance - the pocket lining looks like a jacquard, the logo is woven into the fabric (not embossed).

From those of you who have worn in the 15.7oz denim, how stubborn is it to fade? Any difference in the sanforized version of this denim? Thinking about picking up a pair of the natural tapered 0605-V.
