    What up posse?!?!?!?

    I'm looking for women's raw denim, quality over vanity. It would be great if the company has a men's version, you know for bonding and shit.

    Come on guys, don't let me down.

    Preferably not NF because they stretch too much, at least their men's denim.

    I think a lot of the American made brands have womens lines. Baldwin, Edwin, 3sixteen, Raleigh, Railcar. N&F has some, and there's always Nudies and APC. I don't know if the big Japanese brands do womens lines, maybe someone else will know more.

    Women's Petite Standard looking pretty good. May kop for wife.

    EDIT: FWIW, been puttering around on Context and found this [COLOR=FF00AA]Context/Momo collab[/COLOR]. Wow. Shell cordovan patch? Slubby goodness? 16oz denim? YEEESH.

    What can I say, I don't frequent this site.

    Well these are going to be her first pair of raw jeans so I might just try APC.

    Since I don't want to read the APC thread can anyone tell me what size I would be in APC? The regular cut.

    I'm a 34 in Momotaro because of thighs.

    How's the rise on men's APC's?

    She mentioned nudie's, not sure how I feel about them.

    Hey guys, I talked to Jay about this yesterday when I went in to Blue Owl, but I was wondering what you guys thought of this idea as well.

    Instead of painting on battle stripes, have the stripes be made out of a thick fabric and sewn on to the pocket. Furthermore, instead of having the stripes on the outside, have them on the inside of the back pocket. This way the battle stripes would only become visible after the jeans get some wear. I think this would be a cool feature for a future blue owl x momo collab.

    Thoughts?

    (I'm kind of wondering whether I can do this to my jb401s myself...)

    I'm about a year into my exposure to raw denim now and have just two pair so far --- one pair of Nudies (my first) and a pair of Raleigh's. I'd like to get a pair of Momotaro's as my next pair and thinking about the following:

    - Grand Indigo's
    - Deep Indigo's
    - 701's

    The first two would be different from what I have as there'd be no contrast stitching and the warp and weft both being dark. The 701 is more traditional but might be a good introduction to Momo's before venturing into other varying styles. One reason I selected the above three is the Blue Owl measurements shown for each as they approximate what I think would be a good fit for me. Some of the BOM collaborations are really nice but have a too tapered/skinny look for me (make my legs look skinnier than they are).

    Any suggestions or opinions on each of the above to assist in helping me choose would be appreciated.

    naw skip the 'traditional' 701, youve lived your entire life wearing tradtitional jeans, might as well go for some nice different styles
