Today we are featuring a faded pair of BOM001, which was our very first collaboration with the Japanese label Momotaro. In fact, this was the original sample pair, worn by Kevin here at Blue Owl Workshop. The fabric on the BOM001 is the same as the Momotaro Vintage label 0701 and 0201 models, the only difference for this collaboration being that we tweaked the fit, gave it black stitching and black battle stripes. These have had approximately 2 years of daily wear and 6...
We've got a very special and very limited item from Japan Blue to show today. These Indigo Patchwork Teddy Bears are each one of a kind, unique pieces sewn from a variety of the fabrics that Japan Blue uses in their shirts, pants, and accessories. Only a few were produced, and we expect these will sell out quickly. Japan Blue Indigo Patchwork Teddy Bear. Made in Japan. One size. $90. For more information, click here. Each teddy bear is different, but they all include a...
The production was extremely limited, we have asked Momotaro a couple times if they are going to remake it but have not had a response yet. We are hoping they will again for spring collection as it is one of the coolest shirts we have seen!
El Argentino is exactly right, never expect more than .5" in the thighs. Most stretch will be between .25" - .5" with almost any denim, so it is important to make sure that area is to your liking.
You should expect normal stretch, about 1" in the waist and .5" in the thigh.No great fades on the new Rogue fabrics yet, since they were released recently. 3sixteen is definitely another great option, and their 140x fabric sounds like it could be right up your alley.All solid choices, I'd choose first on fit, and second on what denim you already own.
I don't see this fabric changing much. The dye is a deep navy, and very consistent throughout the jacket, which would seem to indicate a strong dye.The shirt is overdyed, which will take most of the shrink out of it. I don't see it moving very much, if at all.Returns for store credit or exchange for a different size. We can always work with you to find something if the shirt isn't quite right.
We've picked up two amazing natural dyed pieces from Momotaro for this season. First up is their standard 5oz indigo chambray shirt which has been overdyed with green tea. This gives the whole shirt an earthy green hue, and an amazing smell. The cardigan is a soft loop-wheeled fabric dyed with natural indigo, creating one of the richest and most unique blues in the shop. Momotaro 5oz Selvedge Green Tea Dye Chambray Work Shirt - Model MS033T. 100% cotton, made in Japan....
What did you have in mind? We brought them on for their basics, and we're happy with them, but if something too cool to pass up comes up we could carry it.Since you've already done made in Japan and Europe, how about made in USA for the next pair? We're really impressed with Rogue Territory's seasonal fabrics this fall (the Slub and Overdye).
Currently no plans, just too busy to handle a sale this season.We're expecting those two sizes next shipment, three to four weeks out.The BOM009 jacket is not being re-made.
We're proud to announce another new collaboration with Japan Blue, the Broken Twill Deep Blue "Monster"! This denim was created because we have never seen a heavy weight broken twill, nor one with a dyed weft.  We also wanted to offer the amazing deep blue dye in a sanforized fabric, because we understand that the risky nature of unsanforized does not appeal to all denimheads. The Broken Twill Collaboration does not have a slubby vintage texture like the Unsanforized Deep...
