im hoping they get there today, its been like 8 days
If you do not already have it right now, expect it in the next couple days. Tracking can be unpredictable as it relies on your local postal service to scan the package. The customs number can be used to track a package all the way to the destination as long as the local postal service scans it. Most do, Canada Post does not.
We ship to Toronto a couple packages every week and never lost one yet. Usually 7-9 days, sometimes as much as 2 weeks. Don't worry!
Just in from West is Dead.....spring summer 2012 collection slim tapered ducks. This season we have added 2 new colors to our stock for a total of 5 color options. We now carry Rust Beetle Red and Ash Grey which are the new addtions and restocks of Gold Dust, Charcoal, and Moss.
The West is Dead's take on the classic chino uses a 10oz cotton duck canvas which goes through 3 completely different wash processes to add weight and soften the hand. The fabric is lightweight enough for everyday wear and the nature of duck twill gives it the perfect amount of structure. The fit is designed with comfort in mind to allow for additional room in the lower hip giving the extra fabric needed to keep your pants from riding up when you're walking, bending or leaning, but they won’t sag when you're standing tall. The fit is truely slim as they taper from the thigh down to a narrow leg opening. Torn between the traditional welt pocket or adding pocket flaps, this chino has both. On the right you'll find a traditional single welt and on the left a flap that’s shaped and sized so you can tuck it in if you like. Bottom line: these are comfortable pants fit for any occasion.

Introducing the Momotaro x Blue Owl Collaboration Series
We are proud to officially introduce the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series. This series combines the expert artisan craftsmanship of Momotaro with the vision and creativity of the Blue Owl Workshop to develop limited edition denims and fashion items. This series will begin with 3 different denims being released this spring and summer limited to only 40 pairs per denim run. The first collaboration denim is complete and has already shipped from Kojima, Japan and will arrive next week. More details of each denim will be available upon arrival, but here is what to expect.
The first 3 denims in the Momotaro x Blue Owl series will feature a new fit that has never been used on the Momotaro main line, skinny straight. The Skinny Straight fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, runs slim in the leg, and tapers slightly from the thigh to the leg opening. All 3 denims use unsanforized raw selvedge denim made with Zimbabwe cotton produced by the Rampuya denim mill and sewn by the factories of Momotaro in Kojima, Okayama.
Available Early April: Momotaro x Blue Owl "Midnight Warrior" Skinny Straight 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM001
With our 1st collaboration we wanted a super dark denim, but not black. We wanted something that was unique and memorable, yet also minimalistic. The result is a creative denim that uses a super dark indigo with black stitching and details that makes the denim look black, yet will fade to a beautiful indigo full of variations. We used the same fabric from the Momotaro Vintage Series which is rope dyed in pure indigo and already super dark. We used black stitching throughout and a black deer skin patch to give a clean look making the denim look black, at least until the fabric starts to fade. Finally with a tribute to the Going to Battle series and what has become one of the recognizable symbols of the Momotaro label we added the battle stripes, but in black. Thus we are proud to introduce the "Midnight Warrior" denim.
Available late June: Momotaro x Blue Owl Vintage 15.7oz "Skinny Straight" Raw Selvedge - Model BOM002
With our 2nd collaboration we wanted to keep it simple. Basically we feel the Momotaro Vintage Label is the best possible denim Momotaro can produce, so why change it? Thus the BOM002 will feature the same fabric and details as used in the Momotaro Vintage Series and use the skinny straight fit.
Comparing the BOM001 and the BOM002 side x side, you can see how the black stitching and details truly make the BOM001 look like a black denim, but in actuality both of these denims use the same indigo dyed fabric. The fabric is a 15.7oz super-dense 6s yarn made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton and rope dyed to a super dark deep indigo using pure indigo. The fabric has a hairy surface with a good amount of slub and character and fades beautifully.
Available late August/early September: Momotaro x Blue Owl Deep Indigo "Skinny Straight" 15oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM003
The BOM003 "Deep Indigo" denim will feature the Zimbabwe cotton super dark pure indigo warp and sulphur dyed weft fabric that is currently used on the Deep Indigo 0702, but our version has a little twist. First, the fit will be the skinny straight fit, same as the first two collaborations. Second, the fabric is unsanforized rather than the sanforized fabric of the 0702. Both of these factors will allow for the slimmest possible fit and one of the best fabrics to ever come out of the Rampuya denim mill.
The West is Dead: "Herringbone 3-End French Terry" Classic Crew Neck Sweatshirt - - Restocked
Our latest shipment from the West is Dead's spring 2012 shipment has arrived! This shipment includes the West is Dead "Herringbone 3-End French Terry" Classic Crew Neck Sweatshirt in Oatmeal (restock), and a new color - - Antique Back.
The West is Dead "Herringbone 3-End French Terry" Classic Crew Neck Sweatshirt in Antique Black
* 75% cotton, 25% polyester
* Sizes XS, S, M, L, XL
* Hand made in USA
This is the West is Dead's take on the classic crew neck sweatshirt. The fabric is a 3-end French terry, heavy slub-back fabric in a herringbone weave. Its woven on vintage looms in South Carolina, in a district that is famous for producing authentic true-vintage knits. The entire piece is sewn using flat-lock stitching so its fully reversible and with each side you get a completely different look and feel. Here is where the fabric shows its versatility: the face is a flat textured, 50/50 cotton-poly blend, so it takes the dye in a unique heathered pattern. The back slub side is 100 percent cotton and has a beautiful slubby texture, after a few washes the herringbone weave begins to emerge and gives the sweatshirt an interesting hand and a comfortable worn look. A few inches to the overall length have been added to avoid boxiness and finished it off with double Vs in the front and back collar.
that red west is dead crewneck looks nice. any plans to carry it?
The color is called rose and I don't think it was produced, so sorry we won't have it. The sweatshirt is very good and we will get other colors when they come available. We have an indigo dyed version and restocks of oatmeal and antique black on order for fall.
