Just saw a Momotaro 901 for the first time. Big thigh people, attention! Apparently this is a "classic straight" cut...

Coming Soon! Momotaro x Blue Owl 13oz Silk Blend "Tapered" Raw Selvedge - BOM004

We have yet another project in the works - Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM004. Our newest Momotaro collab has just been finalized and is scheduled to be released before the holidays. This denim will feature a silk blend fabric which uses 40% silk and 60% Zimbabwe cotton and it introduces a new fit never made by Momotaro....."tapered!" Here are a few more details.

The fabric is a 13oz sanforized selvedge made with a blend of silk for the weft yarns and Zimbabwe cotton on the warp. The Zimbabwe cotton is rope dyed in pure indigo to a super dark color, but the actual color has a blue gray tone as the silk can be seen along the surface. The exterior surface has slubby texture and a soft feel with a touch of crispness. The interior is incredibly soft, like wearing silk bed sheets wrapped around your legs. Bottom line, this denim is pure luxury, plus it will fade well as the dark indigo will give a nice contrast after some wear. Light blue gray thread was used throughout the denim, including the exposed inseam, which has a slight contrast against the pure indigo dyed fabric. The fit is the same "tapered fit" that is used Japan Blue tapered denims. The fit has a medium to low rise, a bit of room in the thigh, and tapers from upper to a narrow leg opening.

My first Momos were TTS 0201's and after a run through the washer dryer at 6 mos they shrank too much for comfort in the rise and thighs so I sold them. The 0901 is just what I was looking for.
My 0201's fit well through several soaks and drip dry cycles but after agitation in a washer/dryer it was game over. I was only ever able to stretch my waist back to the raw size, and that was torturous. The thigh shrinkage was irreversible, as you might expect.
anyone else sells the 901s?

The I fell down some stairs after a bit of drinking and the top button popped right off. If anyone wants some 0701s cheap, and doesnt mind replacing a button hit me up.
what size?

How do you like the 003s? did you consider the 201s?

How's the rise on the 003s?
post #1552 of 3317
ok. considering a dark, minimalistic momo denim (no pocket white paint). 36 waist, rugby player thighs (approx 25"), want at least a 10 inch front rise (medium rise). not in need of something to wear daily, or in search of serious fades.

suggestions? 201? 702? 003?

BIG 705 SP?

Jay-D/Blue Owl - any plans for sterling buttons/rivets in the future on any of your models?

How's the rise on the 003s?

 

The rise is 9.25" so they sit below my waist; measured area is 38".  My thighs are fine though.  If you use your mobile phone frequently, I'd recommend against buying these unless you're fine with having it in your back pocket.  I have been wearing them to work anytime it doesn't rain.

post #1560 of 3317

you keep mentioning the 702 which isnt really appropriate for jumbo thighs.

 

the 202 is the 201 straight cut with the same deep indigo fabric of the 702.

 

get the 202 in size 34 or 36
