Momotaro - Page 30

post #436 of 3370
Dope pair of Momo's dude... Though I don't like what BiG did to the inseam stitching, although with a good purpose (the red should resemble the peach pink when faded), the pink inseam (and selvage) is really what distinguishes Momotaro from the rest.

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!

Man I would still go with size 29, I just measured my 34s and they are 34.5" in the waist (17.25" when laid flat) and this is after ~ 4 months wear, so as long as you can tolerate a little pain in the beginning, they should stretch back to where your nudies are and fit great

I thought you guys would appreciate a fit pic after three months, so some of the new guys could see the improvement in silhouette after a couple of months wearing, compared to a brand spanking new pair.

Momo 0201, size 29, hot soaked once before wearing:

yes it is. here are some close-ups of a denim sample used on my 0705big jeans. the denim is really amazing ... it started raw with a grey cast and now has a blue hue with a hint of green to it as well. its really hard to accurately capture the color. this denim is fucking stunning.





this one is w/o the flash.

lol, yeah i not a photographer by any stretch but i thought it was a cool picture because you see the great details. its so hard to accurately capture the color denim but i still try as for the sizing on at least the 0705 i would recommend people go tts. you may be able to go down a size if you have smaller thighs and can handle a low-rise but for most of us you need to go tts in this denim. i love the color of the selvage. the inseam and side seam stitch is suppose to change from pink to dark red and over time will change to a peach color.

I don't know actually... Because I didn't measure them. I tried them on in a store and decided to go with the one that fitted the best pre-soak. It's a size 29.

You can maybe compare them to the G007's though, those are pre-washed and I took a size down from the 0201's. Could always measure them for you if you want?

Thanks! I just got this e-mail from Context though:

outside pics ... in the washer right now. post-wash pics will follow!


That´s a nice fit, is that your usual size? I heard you have to size up 1 in this model

Cheers

Whatever, that looks like a good fit.

I sized up from a 34 to a 36 in the 705BIG's and still found the thighs to be a lttle snug. The waist is a little loose but overall I am very happy with the fit. I never wore a 36 in any other jeans and I sometimes even fit in 33's. I'm a fairly normal 6' 1" and 190lbs. Maybe if you have relatively skinny legs you can go TTS. If you are going to have any issue with too small a fit with these jeans it will be in the thighs.
