I own 1. Tapers very aggressively. Had some issues slipping over the ankle, other wise, its good.

Do you own other denim that you could compare it too? I'm in between size 33 and 34 and i'm not sure which one to get. The waist measurement is a tad bid tight for the 33, but I might be able to stretch it out.

Depends what fit you prefer. I wear Momotaro Copper Label G004-MB 34 (abit tight on the waist), N&F Weird Guy 36 (I can wear a 34, but will be too tight on the thighs), Gustin Slim 35 (tight on calves and thighs, don't really like this), Japan Blue Hi-Tapered 36 (loose on the waist, but if sized down, will be too tight on my calves and thighs).

 

I don't like my pants too tight.

I like a nice tapered fit. I have been looking for a tad bit bigger pants in the thighs so I can have a little more freedom, but i'm a fan of small leg openings. I might just go with the size of 34. I wore a size 31 in APC petit new standard and I almost died every time I wore them. I currently have unbranded size 33 skinny, and unbranded size 34 tapered

Just go with the measurements VS your current jeans. They are quite accurate.

HELP PLEASE!!!!!!

 

Need advice please. My awesome wife says that I can get an Iron Heart 666S-21 or a Momotaro Vintage Label pair of jeans. For me, comfort is #1, and I am currently breaking in a pair of Tulp jeans and another......

 

Back to the Momos and Iron Heart. I really need advice please. What would you pick? (and why??!!)

THANKS!!!!!

if i'm not mistaken, the IH you mentioned is a 21-oz denim and i believe Momo vintage label 0701 or 0201 are 15.7-oz.  i live in southern california and nobody can pay me enough to get in a pair of denim heavier than 17 oz.  to me they're almost complete different products.  21-oz denim would just be too heavy/hot for me.

I live in N. CA.  Santa Cruz county.  Yes, it does get cold, but never below 50F.  I'm leaning Momo now....

 

Thanks!!!

Please. Don't make the bostonians laugh at us. I know we put on our mittens and beanies when it's 55 degrees in the mornings...

Ironheart and Momotaro are very different.

I have two pairs of Momotaro jeans, vintage label 0202 15,7oz and BOM008-T 18oz. I haven’t worn the BOM a lot yet. Both jeans seem to be made from the same fabric. The BOM has nice details, while the 0202 is rather basic. They are tightly woven, didn’t stretch and feel quite hard, even after about a year of wearing them. Because of the tight weave, they are not very breathable; not the best jeans for high temperatures.

First I thought my Ironheart IHxRH-666S 21oz were a bit too tight, but they started to feel comfortable after wearing them for two weeks. The fabric is heavy, but doesn’t feel like it, because it moulds to the body and stretches where it has to stretch. Tough jeans with a soft feel. The details are quite interesting: belt loops sewn into the waistband, lined rear pockets, taped front pockets, double selvedge fly…

Both pairs are hard to fade, which is a good thing. They are both high quality jeans of outstanding construction.

So, you'd go with Iron heart?  I am not that much into fades. I'll just throw the jeans in the washing machine (inside out) and line dry it (it is bone dry in CA anyway)

 

I like Iron heart for the poly thread.....

If comfort is your priority and the 666 fit is good for you, yes.
