Thanks for the info!

I'm on a jeans ban, having recently ordered a pair of 19oz Kurabo jeans at huge cost..

But I intend to end the ban with a pair of Momotaro jeans, which I'd never worn before.

My current rotation including the pair on order will be 6 pairs, which is enough, so I'm not breaking the ban until I've worn out one or two, but they're all Japanese denim, and it's really only the Naked and Famous which I love for fun jeans that don't last as long as the Japanese brands.

If I stick to the ban it will be ended with a great pair of Momotaro jeans, but I'm guessing I'll break it long before the end, like the last one!smile.gif

Albam sea wash

- Albam regular leg
- sd -1
- initial warm soak to shrink them and get rid of the starch
- worn daily for six month
- gentle wash because of an ale accident in a pub after six month
- worn twice per week for 12 month
- sea wash after 18 month, followed by a normal wash
- now at the tailor’s to repair the crotch blow-out

There is a lot of abrasion through sand the fabric feels coarser than before. Wouldn’t do this with all my jeans, it was an interesting experiment though.

before:

In my experience Momotaro's do not stretch that much. The general concensus is that they do not stretch a lot, also due to the tight weave. But it may depend on how much stress you put on the denim. Eventually everything will stretch a certain amount.

I can't get Kapital in my size, but their denim is gorgeous - if you have a chance to pick up a pair I definitely would!smile.gif

Thanks, there sizing is only 32+. Am a 31/32 and don't know if there is any stretch in the top block. Most of the Japanese denim I own is RRL which stretch a inch +

 

Really like the look of these 5-s will let you know if I kop.

 

Have fun....

Their ladies jeans start at 27", and I'm a 22"!

They won't do custom for me, so I have to forgo Kapital...

Looking forward to seeing them - my jeans have never lasted 4.5 years ( !), although I'm hoping that my 21oz Kurabo jeans just approaching that' will last as long...they started off dark indigo and I'm hoping to get them to the colour yours look in your mini pic, without going into holes (1 repair already)smile.gif

I'm not sure what you're doing to not have quality denim not last that long. I've worn these hard and, after an initial 6 mo no-soak period, I pretty much washed/soaked them when needed. 21oz denim is pretty damn tough. Assuming you haven't sized down to the point where you're blowing it out, it should last years. I know people who ride motos, do crazy work, etc. and their jeans last multiple years for sure.

That said, these have gotten super soft and are thinner in the thighs/knees now. I don't wear them quite as much now, in order to prolong their life.

Here's the same pics, plus a shitty fit pic, in full size (posted from phone earlier & didn't realize that shrank the image)
