702s? look too big to me.

mine tightened just a smidge on their first machine wash but stretched out again to the original size.

Too big in my opinion. They really don't shrink much at all and then they stretch back out over time anyways.

Again, absolutely beautiful jeans, just wonder if they're too big...!

Well... the 34's will be too small. I would return them and opt for an other cut. The 0202 has a more forgiving topblock whilst maintaining a slim silhouette, due to the taper.

@castroda__ yeah, from your description, i was afraid of that.
don't even try hot soaking ... 702 is not your cut ... just exchange them, man.

I'm 5'11" and fairly stocky, but athletic.  So the question is, which of the following do you think would fit best:

1) 0202 - 34" waist

2) 0702 - 34" waist

3) 0702 - 36" waist

I guess I'm looking for the slimmest fit possible without it being ridiculously tight on the thighs etc.  I would therefore ideally like to get the 0702, not only because they're slimmer fitting but also they're easier to find online. I understand that Momo's don't shrink too much, but I'm still worried that it might be easier getting into Fort Knox after the first wash...

The reason I first stated he should pick the 07's over the 02's was in regard the fit he was looking for. In those terms the 07xx is the best "advice". Though in this case the fit isn't suitable for him. IIIrd was right from the beginning with his advice, as sizing down on tightly woven denim like Momotaro isn't a good idea.

Long story short, exchange for the 0202 if you want deep indigo goodness or opt for a pair of PBJ's if you like them also.

Massdrop (site where price drops as more people buy) has the 0702 up:

great price but i can't see how this won't be a total clusterf*ck. based on sizing issues, and even the difference between same tagged pairs of jeans.

Momotaros, from what I've experienced, are sized rather consistently - esp. compared to other brands. Not sure what sizing issues you're referring to.

i was referring to "amateurs" logging on to the website and choosing the same size they wear in banana republic... and so forth.

but now that you mention it, i did have trouble with my 702s. if i remember correctly, i tried on 34 (same as i wear in 705) in BiG and it was too tight. ended up with a "larger" 33 from Jay (after getting measurements for several pairs) that was perfect.
post #3160 of 3349

i totally agree. there were a bunch of issues in the japan blue massdrop because of the sizing.  maybe they learned from them?

post #3161 of 3349
@tropics__ 702 lot that 1st came out were under-sized [ie, shrunk below tagged], so 'twas an automatic size down ... vs the usual TTS on the 701s.

Having a W33 that fitted was an anomaly. I tried to squeeze into a TTS @W33 [cuz I was thinking since denim was fully sanforized],
when instinct told me to size up frown.gif ... dude in Seattle is wearing them now

Guys, thank you so much for your advice...I took off the tags prematurely and I'm pretty sure I can't return them at this point...so have decided to keep them. What would be the best way to get them to fit a bit better? I know these things don't shrink much...

Thanks too for the PBJ's tip, think I'll make those my next pair!

Personally, I'd sell them - they're not going to shrink much at all and no tailor is going to be able to make those fit great.

Hot wash and tumble dry might do the trick, although they likely stretch back to original measurements.

it's not what you want to hear, but those look like they will never fit properly. how much room exactly do you have in the waist? can you fit a hand in there? i'm sure most of us can relate, i've tried to make pairs work in the past when i knew in my heart they were just wrong. better to take the initial hit and move on.

how are the thighs? you could consider getting a size or two down on that massdrop site.

ETA - as mistral says, you could try wash + dry but that will lower any potential resale value.
