Not that I'm complaining.. in fact, it looks pretty awesome; reminds me of night sky inlove.gif
The speckles show only when I take picture with flash on.

Hi Denim Lovers: I'm trying to decide between JB 0701 and Momo 0701. These would be my first raws (I'm used to crappy mall brands). I'm 5' 6", 145 lbs in good shape. I just bought JB 0701 from Jay at Blue Owl and am wondering if its worth spending the extra $100 to get the Momo. The size 30 in JB fits me. I know I should read this thread but I need to decide in a day or two if I should keep or return the JB. Other brands I have are Joe's Jeans, an old Levis that has a crappy fit and a Rock and Republic. From what I understand JB is still pretty good. I want a pair that will retain its darker color as much as possible since I'd like to dress it up and that would drape well. Also looking for a timeless classic simple look (without designs) that will last for years. Thanks so much.

The RR actually fit well and have held up quite well but they're from the days when I was a brand whore who wanted the latest trends.

What dimension do you mean. The JB 0701 size 30 fit me.

I would stick with the JB's If you're not familiar with STF jeans.

I was referring to your waist, thigh, and calf measurement.

Before you keep any pair of denim make sure your thighs are somewhat comfortable, because if your thighs and package hurt at the beginning they will always hurt.

shrink to fit.

generally, on O/W & sanforized, you can chose the tighest pair you can get into & button up. as Mistral had begin emphasizing time & again, make sure you're good at the thighs.

on STF, make sure you got about 1" slack [of fabric] at the thigh when dry/RAW. if hemming [dry] in-store, make sure instruction is clear that you want the POST soak/wash inseam to be [w/e], so that they'll factor in shrinkage allowance on the finished hem.

I have the JB001 and love the quality of the denim, although personally if these were not on sale I would have goten something with the vintage denim instead.

 

STF= Shrink to fit.

I have also emphasized the thigh part numerous times, how come I don't get credit. frown.gif

So you are saying that I need a pair of jeans with 13" in the thigh so that I have 12" thighs after soaking? Are you sure?

thanks, and why would you have opted for vintage instead? Quality or too much to deal with?

so sorry.... i mean, MIstral & Caltex & Argentino smile.gif

anyway, the 12 is a flat measurement =24 circumference. you need at least 12.5 = 25" all-around. but, make sure measurement is taken from same point/spot... ie, like "BiG-style" = upper thigh measurement taken directly from crotch.


btw, the vintage line is heavier in weight & [imo] have the more traditional dyeing process.

I understand now. In your experience with STF if the jeans are loose in the waist pre-soak, will you notice a significant difference post-soak?

I have to ordere a size 36 to accomodate for my thighs but this also leaves me with a larger waist. I am a size 34 for reference.

The 0701's for instance are a low rised cut. You have to take this into account. For instance, a short frontrise or a longer one make difference in the measurement of the waistband and the place the jeans "sit". If you can fit the thighs and their is no option (by for example partially soak a pair of jeans) to fit into the waist, wether it's to big or to small then you should ask yourself the question If a fit matches your build.

By the way CalTex, I posted a huge entry regarding shrinkage and still there are questions? STF's shrink. Use that info wisely wink.gif

Basically I share the same sentiment as Icon. That and the stf denim always ends up fitting me best since I am a small guy. With saf denim I have to size down a lot, and often end up with a pair of jeans that are just ok in terms of fit. Love that the vintage denim is heavier, the details are exquisite, the hand of the denim is much more appealing and the dye and color of the denim is beautiful. Still love my JB's, but I will most likely end up with either a 701 or 001 in the momo's.

Mistral,

I read your last few posts, was this a while back? I may have missed it.
