Thanks. They are my fav pair of jeans. Too bad my work doesn't allow me to wear them, otherwise I would have put a lot more wear into them.

How much is the grand indigo fabric going to stretch with wear? similar to the vintage label?

How did your get them repaired? I'm about to get a blow out I think and I have had any of my jeans repaired.

I went to the denim store I trust the most and asked them if they could repair them. So I didn't do it myself! :)

Okay, thanks. I have read on SF how people get blow outs fixed, but it was never clear if they they take it to a denim store, a tailor, or somehow patch it themselves.

People do both! But I can't sew, so I went to the store.

hey everyone, in the market for new some denim. i know this thread seems to be mostly focused on mainline momo, but I'm looking specifically at some JP0701s. Any comments on these?

I have a pair of Japan Blue in the tapered fit, and I daresay for $200, there isn't better denim out there. Provided the fit is right (given that JPs are massively vanity sized compared to their Momo brethren), they are a fantastic pair, fade and wear well, etc. Would recommend.

can you elaborate on the "massively vanity sized" point? my best fitting pair of pants measure exactly 29" so I was planning on purchasing a sz28 from rakuten (http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/bears/item/japanblue-jb0701/) which lists the measurement for that size as ~28.5" which doesn't seem terribly vanity sized. how much stretch did you experience?

i'm also debating the eternal 883.

At least w/ the tapered fit, the waist of a tagged 33 measured about 35.5. Maybe they've tightened up their production measurements to fit more TTS in the last 3 years.

hmm good to know. i think i'll go by the measurements just to be sure, though. did you experience a lot of stretching/shrinkage? the 28 would be perfect for me going by the raw measurements, but judging by the o/w on rakuten, may be slightly too small?
