More work and details, as is the use of higher grade materials, is reflected in the pricetag. Does it make it better than a pair of JB's? What does quality mean in regard to both? Not that Momo's are a better jean, just that they are more premium compared to JB.

Japan Blue X Momo, lends some of the "popularity" achieved by Momotaro, but destiquinses itself by, for instance other production environment (more industrial techniques versus the artisan hand crafts on the Momo's). Different dying mehtod. JBx Momo are sulphur dyed instead of using solely indigo. Other things that set JB apart from Momo is the use of different hardware and the lack of some details. Namely different hide on the patches, the lack of hidden rivets on the backpocket, no pink selvage outseam and "lower" quality cotton.

These partical details are the reason why JB is a lot cheaper than Momotaro, but then again JB is focussed on another market than the denimheads, namely the more gernreal buyer. JB is a brand estasblished to provide quality denim for a reasonable price, with the main goal to compete with other mid rier denim brands. It's a way for Japan Blue Group to get a greater share on te denim market.

So in short: Momotaro is a triple A brand, regarding quality, construction and a great focus on traditional methods an details regarding jeans production. Japan Blue is a brand more for the general jeans buyer/lover. Whilst still exeptional quality for the money, in an other legaue than Momotaro, but then again aimed at a totally different market.

Hopes this helps a bit...

[By the way, for those wondering why I dont post that often anymore. I think the new SF is shit, in terms of usabililty. Site is slow a hell and I don't find it easy to navigate. While that is just my personal opinion, I liked the old SF better]

Try and find the measurements for the Rogues and compare them to the measurements on BlueOwl. If anything also feel free to contact Jay, his customer service is incredible

I have the chinos and they are great, can't compare to the Rogues but I can tell you they are very slim and have a low rise. I had to size up 1 for them to fit me well, yet still slim.

I found that BlueOwl's measurements are very accurate. Mine didn't shrink a ton. They are really, really hard to stretch. Just keep that in mind when you're trying to pick the right size. I would suggest going true-to-size.

I would suggest TTS too. But the thigh area is the most important. Get it right or else you'll be sorry.
post #2469 of 3350

I have a pair of APC NS in size 26 and am looking for something a little bit more relaxed up top, but with some taper. Would the Japan Blue Tapered 0401 in size 28 be a good choice?

Thanks for the help.

You mean hard, like you really have to push it otherwise it wont strecth, or like it takes more time to strecth than most brands

Takes more time and has less stretching potential than most brands.

Momo's are what you call a tight weave. This makes them hard to stretch.

No. JB is vanity sized. Measures two inches bigger than tag implies. Momo's run fairly true to tagged size.

Yea, 31s JB stretched out to be perfect and i'm def not a 31 waist.  wear 31s and 32s in everything
