Momotaro - Page 147

post #2191 of 3300
Hey guys just washed my Momo's and noticed wear on the inner thigh of my jeans...at the seam where the denim is rolled the top of the roll has started to wear through. I know the earlier the better when it comes to denim repairs so I figured I'd ask you guys for some opinions on if they need some attention now or if I am being paranoid. From the picture just let me know what you think. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. But the difference between no wash and first or second is pretty pronounced. Kind of odd to hear someone suggest otherwise. 702's have really nice color and heavy indigo (see the contest thread). Plus when you wash them you lose the form & ridges in the body of the jeans, particularly the whiskers in the back of the knee. If you want your jeans to look like gap dad jeans that's cool, but I don't think you're going to get the kind of high-definition fades that I'm personally looking for when buying an expensive jean like momotaros.

They're fine unless the stitching really starts to come away or you start to wear through on the other side of the stitching.

The difference between how fast fades set-in and/or develop after no wash, the first, and the second wash is pronounced. The difference between your jeans right before and after you do those washes is not.

These look quite good, actually.

DO YOU EVEN WEAR JEANS?

Just so you know, these aren't 702s, but rather Grand Indigos... 702 don't have Japan Blue printed across the waistband.

Ever have one of those mornings of complete gender reversal? My wife fucks up my clothing, offers a lame apology, texts me that she will buy a new pair... these are complete dude moves. I KNOW THOSE MOVES.

I feel you. But it's not my wife who wash my jeans but my mom. She find it wearing it for more than a week is too dirty and secretly wash my denim. Now I just hide my 0702 to prevent her from washing.

Just got 2 Momotaro Chambray workshirts (red and black) today from http://www.and-japan.com/. I tried to get both at the Momotaro store in Aoyama Tokyo in October but they didnt have any without the stripes on the sleeve. Fit is probably the best ive ever had for a button up shirt. Both are awesome looking and well put together. Plus they were cheaper on and-japan they they were at the Momo store. And there was free FedEx shipping too.
