Momotaro x Blue Owl Collaboration Series

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.

Momotaro x Blue Owl "Midnight Warrior" Skinny Straight 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM001


We are proud to introduce the first denim in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series. With our 1st collaboration we wanted a slimmer fit than currently offered by the Momotaro denim line. The skinny straight fit was originally developed for the Japan Blue label and this is the first time it has been used by Momotaro and the first time as an unsanforized denim. In terms of details, we were looking for super dark denim, but not black denim. We wanted something that was unique and memorable, yet also minimalistic. The result is a denim using super dark pure indigo with black stitching and details creating a super dark denim that looks black, yet will fade to a beautiful indigo full of variations. 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. We are proud to introduce the "Midnight Warrior" denim.

Momotaro x Blue Owl Collaboration Series - BOM002


With our 2nd denim in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series, we wanted something clean and minimalistic, something with no additional embellishments that will satisfy any denim purist, and we wanted a slim modern fit. We feel the best denim that Momotaro makes is the Vintage Label 0701, thus we did not change a single detail except for the fit. This collaboration denim uses the same fabric and same details as used on the 0701 but has a skinnier fit that has a low rise, runs slim throughout the legs with a moderate taper, and has a narrow leg opening. We are proud to introduce the "Vintage" Skinny Straight BOM002 denim.

Momotaro x Blue Owl Collaborations: BOM003 Lands Next Week!


The much anticipated 3rd collaboration in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series has just finished production and will be in store next week, a few weeks earlier than anticipated. 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.

Momotaro x Blue Owl: Introducing the Deep Indigo Skinny Striaght Model BOM003



We are proud to introduce the third denim in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series. With our 3rd collaboration we wanted something that creates incredible high contrast fading and uses a super dark indigo, so we looked at the newly released Deep Indigo 0702 for a little inspiration. Our version is similar to the 0702 in that it uses the same super dark pure indigo on the warp yarns and the same sulpher dye on the weft yarns. The difference is our version is slightly heavier at 15.7oz, comes in the unsanforized state (shrink-to-ft), and made in the "Skinny Straight" fit which is slimmer than any of Momotaro's standard fits.

I might have a little info, this is his reponse when I asked if he would be doing another run of the BOM003:

We may do them again.  BOM004 is in production now with another run
scheduled for February.  BOM003 may be made again, hard to say.  I might do
another run of that one for fall 2013.  It is a great color and fabric to
wear going into fall.  Actually I am working on the same fabric style in a
heavier weight which may be ready for fall release.  We will wait and see.
Best, Jay - Blue Owl

Not yet. BOM004 2nd production is about done (this one sold fast and I loved the fabric so we are doing more). BOM005 is in production now. BOM006 is not quite finalized, but should be ready for production as soon as BOM005 is complete. I will have details of BOM006 probably next month, release will be May or June.

Keep me posted on those. I would gladly pick them up when they are available. Curious about the details though.

Wondering if you would like to purchase a tag size 30 Momotaro X Blue owl Workshop BOM003. 

This pair is brand new without tags and is extremly nice quality and fit. Unfortunatley it is too tight for me and I cannot wear it. The length is 34 and the fit is around a 28 size waist.

Those are the pictures and the jean is right here

These are unsanforized and have been through one wash.

These are in great condition, message me if you want to know more. 

 

 

These are one of the few jeans that are skinny fit by momotaro. They are skinny fitting similar to PBJ’s and Apc Petit standard.
