Purchased these in April '12 from Blue Owl Workshop. Fantastic denim. Color is super dark and fades to a saturated, electric blue. The attention to detail on every pair of Momotaro's I've seen and handled is second to none; they literally feel bulletproof. Denim is hefty but still incredibly soft. Fit is a "tight straight," and lives up to the title - fits slim in the top block and thighs with a very slight taper down to the ankle. Very, very pleased with this pair. Will definitely be investing in Momotaro again when a new pair is required.
