On the 0702 all the sizing chart I found mention this: TS-1 = TAG
A tag 33 would be a W34, that would be to large.

I'm torn between buying
- a tag 32 that would perfectly match my waist (W33)
- a tag 31 that I would have to strech out from W32 to W33

It depends on the ability of this sanforized denim to strech out a full size but I read to very different opinions on forum.

I'm thinking about asking Jay to find me the biggest tag 31 he has. That could be the right choice.

Alright - whatevs man. Just trying to help. Regardless of how they may be sized, generally you go TTS. It most likely won't stretch a ton. Momo just doesn't.

FWIW, I've been hard pressed to ever find a momo that didn't match what it was tagged.

CalTex is the (lazy) ''operating manager'' who make a lot of crotch shots and so does the rest actually. It's a fun contest thread, go through it and you'll find out biggrin.gif


wtf do you mean I am lazy?

Someone else also pointed out the difference of the 701 and 705 in terms of shrink to fit vs prewashed which is why I specifically mentioned which ones I had purchased. I apologize if I incorrectly instructed on irrelevant washing instructions. 

 

 

you clearly misread me because i never said anything about washing.  my main point was that people should pay attention to the rise when buying jeans instead of just buying the 'waist' measurement.  that is because of the rise, their waist measurement is actually meant for your hip measurement.

True. Lower the rise, lower they sit on your hips/waist so your measurement will be smaller.

Low rise jeans often have a vanity sized waist. This is because of the hip area being fuller than the waist, if you're anatomically correct, that is.

Fawk all you plebs talking about sizing.

If they don't fit just buy another pair that does and donate the pair that doesn't.

On my way to the cobbler I found a little shop in Paris that had 3 models of Japan Blue.
They only had tag size 31 and 33.

I tried the JB0102:
- tag 31 was really to tight, I was not able to button up
- tag 33 was too loose with too much room in the waist

I assume I'm a tag 32 in this brand so I think I will order the same size for my Momotaro product line.

I am just going to assume everyone that has asked a sizing question does not own a tape measurer, or a piece of string.

Like WTF guys, you have really awesome dudes like El and Cal that keep helping you out, you have the BOW measurements, Jay thats on here quite a bit and you have the interwebs. Come one just Stahp

I told him to measure his thighs before buying anything. Thanks for giving me credit.

You realize the 1xx is a totally different cut from the 7xx, right? If you can't button up, it could be that the thighs/knees/calves are too tight causing the jeans to sit a little lower so that you'd need a larger waist measurement

 

Sizing jeans isn't a guessing game or a "trying on jeans" art form. It's 99% numbers and it's not that hard to get right

He also fails to realize that the JB-line is dramatically vanity sized compared to the true Momotaro line because while similarly rooted THEY'RE NOT THE SAME BRAND.

Ex. even in the pertinent 70- cut, a tagged 32 is 32" in Momotaro. It's around to 34" in JB.

As a caveat, if he had any contact w/ Jay, I'm sure the order was well consulted, regardless of the final outcome.
post #2429 of 3301
I spent one week reading all the Momotaro topics on MyNudie, SF, SUFU, etc.
I spent 1h to measure all my pants.
I exchange few mails with Momotaro.
I contacted Jay, Tate+Yoko, etc.

So YES I may had done the wrong choices but I think it is now time to give a try smile.gif !

Regarding the cut I know they are not the same.

The fact is that you have you opinion and I also read the contrary on some other thread.
I took all advices into account, it is just that at the end I have to try on my own and build my own experience of Momo sizing. smile.gif

Momotaro 701 (unsanforized - meaning that waist will shrink up to 2 inches) - * Size 32 (33" waist, 10.5" rise, 11.75" thigh, 9" knee, 39" inseam, 8.25" leg opening)

Momotaro 705 (aka - safe approximation of what your 701 could end up as after shrinkage, if not smaller) - * Size 32 (32" waist, 10.25" rise, 11.25" thigh, 8.7" knee, 35.5" inseam, 7.8" leg opening)

Japan Blue 700 (same cut, but produced by a different brand) - * Size 32 (34" waist, 10.5" rise, 11.25" thigh, 8.75" knee, 38.5" inseam, 8" leg opening)



As clearly seen here - the measurements of a Japan Blue version of the same cut LET ALONE A DIFFERENT CUT are nothing upon which to base your purchase of Momotaros, despite any similarities in the cut. The same tagged size results in a (slightly) higher rise and (much) bigger waist.

I hope your purchase works out for you - I really do.

This is not even considering a thigh-measurement argument that CalTex did address previously. (Credit)
