Momotaro - Page 154
Hey guys, I talked to Jay about this yesterday when I went in to Blue Owl, but I was wondering what you guys thought of this idea as well.
Instead of painting on battle stripes, have the stripes be made out of a thick fabric and sewn on to the pocket. Furthermore, instead of having the stripes on the outside, have them on the inside of the back pocket. This way the battle stripes would only become visible after the jeans get some wear. I think this would be a cool feature for a future blue owl x momo collab.
(I'm kind of wondering whether I can do this to my jb401s myself...)
I allready mentioned this in the BO affiliate thread.
I'm about a year into my exposure to raw denim now and have just two pair so far --- one pair of Nudies (my first) and a pair of Raleigh's. I'd like to get a pair of Momotaro's as my next pair and thinking about the following:
- Grand Indigo's
- Deep Indigo's
The first two would be different from what I have as there'd be no contrast stitching and the warp and weft both being dark. The 701 is more traditional but might be a good introduction to Momo's before venturing into other varying styles. One reason I selected the above three is the Blue Owl measurements shown for each as they approximate what I think would be a good fit for me. Some of the BOM collaborations are really nice but have a too tapered/skinny look for me (make my legs look skinnier than they are).
Any suggestions or opinions on each of the above to assist in helping me choose would be appreciated.
This. The 701 will be around for many years to come. As are many other "traditional" denims. Venture into something different.
Too true. I think you've helped me decide. As you say, I can always get the 701 later on if I want. Thanks guys.
You guys crack me up! Sounds like a cult worth joining. The 702s are definitely one of the top three now. What do you guys think of the Blue Owl/Momotaro "silk/Zimbabwe" BOM004? Walking around feeling like silk sheets are wrapped around your legs sounds wonderful! Also, does anybody have the Grand Indigo? Thoughts on that one?
Yes. They are a fantastic pair of denim. After enough wear they become silky smooth and have a great greasy look to them. Fading takes a while, and they don't stretch out near as much as other labels. But they are phenomenal and well worth the money.
