Our most ambitious collaboration with Momotaro to date has arrived in store! To remind you all, in this project we've aimed to create the ultimate raw denim jacket. Using a sanforized version of our custom BOM003 "Deep Indigo" 15.7oz fabric, with an indigo warp and black weft, the jacket has a hefty, sturdy weight to it. We're pleased and excited to offer to you the Momotaro x Blue Owl "Deep Indigo" Sanforized 15.7oz Type 2 Selvedge Denim Jacket - Model BOM007. A limited production of only 30 jackets, available online now for $395. For more information, click here
The pleated front allows for chest flexibility while still keeping the jacket sleek and slim.
A small Momotaro tab is sewn into the pocket. Contrast Momotaro pink stitching is hidden behind the pocket flap. The pockets are lined with hickory stripe chambray.
Every button on the jacket is custom engraved with the Momotaro logo and brushed with a nickel finish. The button holes are expertly sewn with matching indigo thread.
Pink selvedge runs along the inside on both sides of the jacket from the base to the collar.
Unique to Blue Owl, a kangaroo leather patch with the traditional collaboration logo. The pink stitching runs down the whole front of the jacket, revealed only when the jacket is unbuttoned.
The pleats in the back provide the same utility as those in the front, keeping the jacket slim while giving the jacket a lot of flexibility. Keeping true to the Type 2 design, a button waist adjuster is included.
Here are Jay's BOM003 with 7 months of wear and one wash up against the brand new jacket. We can see the fading on this jacket will be astounding.
One last shot comparing the fades on the leg of Jay's jeans to the arm of the jacket. You can see how the fabrics have the same color where fading hasn't occurred. We can't wait to see how this jacket will evolve.Edited by Jay-D - 11/13/13 at 7:35pm
