Anybody here who has both models and can comment on this?

The 0702 was a bit undersized. I had a pair also and sized up from the size I had in the 0701. Not sure if the same apllies for the 0202, but the 0201 can be sized down one easily. I think your good if you go TTS in that pair (the size 30 for the 0202 that is).

The 702 I got from Blue Owl are not undersized in the waist. They are size 30 and the waist I measured is just a bit under 31. The fit is tight but not uncomfortable and I am able to button all the way up. I expect the waist to stretch a bit anyway. The problem is that they are too tight in the crotch area and I don’t expect any streching there.

Therefore I will probably exchange them for a pair of 202 in size 30. This will give me half an inch more in the rise and the uper thigh.

Undersized, as in, a tad smaller than the 701 ... w/c most of us use as comparative base for sizing.

Got the 202sp, su1 @w34
Yes they're more accommodating/generous [junk] space. TTS should be best to get slimmish fit for athletic built

Thanks for helping, @IIIrd Icon and @Mistral.
Will get the 0202 in 30.
Did you SU1 to get a more relaxed fit?
post #3230 of 3362
^yes, i did smile.gif

I am thinking of getting the grand indigo, should I go TTS as well?  are these jeans like the vintage collection in he sense they don´t strecth much?

'been constantly pm'ed regarding why i have been sizing up when partially/fully sanforized denim does not shrink much, if at all smile.gif .... so here's a comprehensive fit pix from right after initial double soak to current status [ie, 3yrs+ down the line = multiple washes]

Is there a big difference between the fits of 0701, G-004, G-007 and G-014? Looking for something classic skinny straight but don't mind tapering as long as they're not as severe as the weird guys. Also has anyone tried the BOM-002 Blueowl collab based on 0701? Thanks.

Looking great - keep taking regular pics - it's a great reminder of their evolution.

Look in great condition for 3yrs+ - should last a while yet!

Enjoy your evolution process!!

Really sorry, but I can't help you with this one - hopefully somebody with experience will pick up the reins and give you the right advice..

What about your proposed PBJ 005s!?smile.gif

Seeking a size 34 BOM-006 tapered. Shout if you have a pair you are looking to sell

check the measurements on the size charts for comparison.
if you're looking for skinny, it's none of those 4 models you mentioned. As for BOM002, dimensions have "skinny" possibility ... depending on your body type.

the "tight" 701s & G007s are [actually] slim-straights [check fit pix above for 701s], while the "slim" G004/014 have higher rises & roomier thighs with slight tapering from knee to hem. Meaning, they may not be slim @all.

as already mentioned, these cuts are silhouettes, the actual fit entirely depends on how you're built

hey, was thinking of making the jump from apc to momotaro, but a few questions:

- asked this in another thread, but how much does the pink inseam thread and selvage thread stand out in person?

- how does momotaro stack up to other japanese brands like flat head, japan blue, etc.?


- anybody have fit pics of the new-ish 'tight tapered' cut (model 0305 I think it is)?

I've only been able to find a few pics here:

really love the fit on those

^ Can you order these jeans on-line or can you only purchase them in store. I'm really liking the pair with the white battle stripes

1. No, it doesn't stand out. I have to smack someone in the face with it before they notice it. Though on the deep indigo it stands out more because of the greater contrast between fabric and inseam/selvage.
2. On par. Momotaro's are a great piece of craftmanship.
3. No. But I don't like the new models anyway. Vintage Label is where it is at.
