as for the 500xx, they're not slow-fader, with respect to Momo or SDA or Fullcount__ if that's what youe meant by "..takes awhile to get worn in

the slubby texture of the Texas cotton in combo with the kind of indigo used to dye it will evo
quite differently from what you've already got [... & experienced]. the cut/fit is also very versatile__ from comfort to slim-mish straight [if sized down].
bottomline, the 500XX
s would be a fab addition to your collection/rotation.
Thanks for the reply. I love the Momotaros enough that I'm considering buying a new pair. I've had the current pair for 3 years and they've held up beautifully and look great. With what you said, I may want another pair even more. I like beautiful faded jeans as much as everyone else, but I don't mind if it takes a long time to get there.
I like the S0500XX cut because it's nearly identical to the Momotaro 0201. Just thought I'd try something different with a similar cut.
The Eternals I have had for 2 years and they're great as well, but I still prefer the Momotaros. Both jeans are size 31 and I have a 32 waist, and the fit is nice.
