However, the classic straight cut, I agree ... the leg to rise ratio are kinda in the realm of SD-101.

Yeah, if that. The back rise is actually lower than that of my SD-101. Kind of a weird decision to put the lowest rise of the 3 models on the fuller leg option. Oh well, plenty of denim fish in the sea...

this is such an epic post! I’m so glad I saw this. I’ve been AWOL for a while. I remember when you got these. That was back during my first Momo trial-and-error days.
 

Yeah, and fast forward ten years and two size-ups later (okay, three, for that “size to last” idea). But I still have yet to give any of my Momos THIS kind of commitment. So glad to see the amazing evo on these, even if it makes me feel old

Just added this pair of momo 0305-v

size 32w purchased from rivet and hide London. Had them hemmed to 32 length. 

I'm 5'9" and weigh 160 pounds here.

i already own 0405-v in the same fabric which is a relax taper I got that pair size 33w which fits super relaxed a slight mistake from my part I could have easily got the 32. It was Christmas time and gained some bad weight at the time ( I will store them for now only worn once)

I also got a pair of pbj x019 relax taper size W32 to replace my momo0405 as the pbj back pocket placement is better imo

these are some fit pic  of my 0305-v sorry for the lighting.( soaked in bath tub to get some starch out)

I’m back at the gym now, so the fit will only improve with a bit of work on my legs. The hammer strength v squat machine will be used a lot.D38A2121-643F-4F11-8E7C-F2C0070CECF0.thumb.jpeg.1aa5fa8b4f605412b6a1b22a4d81abc5.jpeg

Dirty bulk?

@Lalafufu

no clean bulk as my belly is on the bigger side ( need them abs back) so will bulk with good quality whole foods and focus on legs to add mass. 
Need to focus on mid section so I sadly can’t do a dirty bulk.I’m hoping I get a little stretch on the waist. Judging by my 0405-v model which stretched 0.5 inch in the waist which led it to become too big. I now need that for my 0306-v. 0.5-1 inch is more than enough for me.

Yes Momos are a tough stretch particularly the final quarter inch

the Momo stretching process made me question the tradition of starting at 1 inch less than your waist

What are your thoughts on the Japan Blue Jeans Cote d'Ivoire Type 4?

I have no experience with JB so don’t know how this denim jacket compares with other Japanese brands. Any of you own this?

I never go one down from my size but buy the size that fits snug and able to do the top button with a slight effort. If there was a size between 32 and 33 it would be perfect but the little stretch I get from 32 should do the trick all I need is 0.5 inch. It’s the sanforized momotaro and they do stretch a little. I also have momotaro g004mb in unsanforized  denim and that pair did not stretch past even a cm or 2 but i also sized down one stupidly.

Being a 15.7 oz denim I am sure it will take a bit longer for the waist to stretch.

Just a few more pics of my 0306-v fit pic

only worn a few days still waiting to really break them in properly as they are super stiff even after soaking. Was worried initially about waist being a tad too small but glad I did not size up to 33.I can already tell there will be a bit of stretch in the waist but also seems tough. There isn't a lot of detail as it’s taken using iPhone 7 sadly. Still trying to fill out the legs at the gym. I think in about another 2 months with a bit more mass on my legs they will be perfect. In a way this pair of jeans will be telling how my leg gains are coming along.

What’s the difference between Momotaro copper label vs vintage label.

So this is the waist stretch of my momotaro 0305-v 15.7oz denim ( sanforized fabric)

after wearing 2 months mainly weekend I can safely say there is a full stretch of upto 1 inch in the waist. As long as the denim is snug it will stretch out. There is a lot of talk of how momotaro’s do not stretch but I can conclude that is not true for the sanfirized versions of their jeans.

as for people buying wrong size do not expect Edwin jeans type of stretch where they stretch nearly 2 inches. Expect LVC type of stretch. If the waist fits snug on the tighter side then they will stretch out 1 inch with wear. Sometimes I find people size down expecting the stretch to make the size correct. IMO that’s not the way to buy denim, it should fit comfortable from day 1 but a very snug fit, the stretch u get just adds to the comfort.  Below I have pic of the waist where u can see proof that the waist does stretch. U also get 0.25 in the thigh and overall the top block will also loosen up. The calves area u get little to no stretch as there isn’t much pressure there.

the shrink after first soak is very minimal to none. 
I am not talking about the unsanforized version here, for that I’ll have to buy a pair and see. even though i had g004mb that one i sized down wrongly.

Just some update pic of momotaro 0305-v size 32.

still hasn’t faded much but that’s ok for me. I don’t mind slow fading jeans. Was trying on some jackets. And took a few photos in the changing room. They fit a bit better now vs when I first got them as I have gained 1 stone weight and have been using leg press at the gym still have work to do though as I need to make them tight.

sorry for the bad light
