Hi Jonathon,

We are planning to produce more but have not yet set a date when we'll be
starting, most likely around the middle of Feb or so to complete around the
end of March. I can keep you updated when we have more information on this.

Regards,

Gordon



also yea i saw they had sizes in stock right above and below what I wanted, made me sad.

tbh, looking at these size charts, i could probably squeeze into a pair of 29 raws but the thighs would be tight as sin, and to my understanding momotaros barely stretch so it wouldnt be a good idea really

Yes, this is indeed 2,5 months of continuous wear. With maybe a day or two off... But they really are something, loving them more and more each day!

Did soak before wear, and as of now I haven't soaked or washed them. Will hold out to about 6 months, maybe longer.

By the way, all who are interested in the 0705. You could also opt for the G007 from the Copper Label series, it's almost the same silhouette and they are to die for :P

thats great! i know they have been working with momo on some other things as well, which if come to pass with be fucking epic. we need a ai jean in a slimmer cut ... like the gold 003 natural indigo denim in a 0701/05 cut.

Hey! I'm considering getting the Momotaro + Context Grand Indigo Selvage 0701MCXX, but I'm worrying about the size, as I see others have done earlier when buying 0701. I don't have too much experience with raw denim. I've had three Nudie jeans, where only the ones I'm wearing now are selvage (Grim Tim). They're all 29" in the waist, and that's pretty much perfect for me; tight to button in the beginning, but a nice, slim fit (no belt needed) after some wear. What size do you recommend I get the Momotaros in? Has anyone compared Nudie Grim Tim Dry Selvage to Momotaro (or these especially) before? I see that Context estimates that both jeans stretch one inch in the waist, but that the Momotaro also shrinks one inch in the waist when washed (the Grim Tims might do that as well, I don't know yet).

This will depend on whether you are going to soak them or not. If you're going to soak, then I would measure the waist on your nudie's and get the same size in the 0701MCXX per Context's measurement chart. They'll shrink an inch with a soak, and then stretch back to the original size fairly quickly. If you're NOT going to soak, then I would size down one to account for the stretch.

Also, I would email this question to Context and see what they say. They were certainly helpful when I was figuring out sizing on these. The 0701MCXX are fucking awesome by the way, I need to get some evo pics up of mine.

I bet, they said the exact same thing! Thanks. Did you soak them or not? I've only had sanforized jeans before, but I understand soaking non-sanforized ones is generally advised.

Yes I soaked mine, they shrink in length too (i don't remember by how much). I needed to get mine hemmed so I wanted to get the shrinking out of the way first.

I think everyone needs to get them hemmed, they only come 39" on the inseam!

Thanks for the tips, I'm going for it Would still love some photos though.

I've posted plenty pictures regarding Momotaro. The 0201 Vintage and G007 Copper Label though. Search for it in this thread.

Btw, the G007's are golden, so they deserve to been seen :P

Yeah, pretty much. And experience. I think it's a pretty expensive item to purchase from an online store overseas (I'm in Europe) when all I have to compare it to size-wise is Nudie. I see that they both stretch about an inch though. A thought: Although Context also advised me to buy the same size as the Nudies, my Nudie jeans in size 29 measure 29.5" in the waist, while the 0701 only come in whole inches and the waist sizes match the tagged sizes. Maybe I should size up to 30" instead of going with 29" then? The Nudies are pretty tight from the store. If I soak and shrink the 0701 to 28" that's 1.5" tighter than those again. HMM!
