    There will be no extra cash. The money from the buy-in is used to buy the giftcard, more people join = higher giftcard value. We are not pocketing anything you joos.

    Yup. You could probably do a special order through Jay, or track them down on Rakuten

    0202, available via special order @ Blue Owl, I guess. Jay can probably arrange it for you.

    Same fit as 0201, featuring the dyed weft, the 0702 also has.

    The color on the ER007-2Bs is amazing. They appear a little bit darker in just incandescent light. Haven't seen them in natural light yet. Great fit too. Just got them from Jay at Blue Owl. Time to break these in.

    Just got my first pair of Momotaro in the mail - 0701s. I've had raw denim before, but these are beastly! My wast is 29.5, and I got a size 28 (only size left for a great price on Revolve). I can get 'em buttoned up barely, but their definitely gonna have to stretch in the top block if I want children someday. I usually don't soak my denim, and I was hoping I could go that route with these, cuz if they got soaked, there's no way they'd fit. I'm planning to just wear them as much as I can and not wash them for a long, long time. Any ideas as to how much stretch I can expect? I'm pretty damn active lots of walking, skating, etc. Basically I just really wanna keep these and make 'them work for me, and any help would be much appreciated.

    I'd wait to hear from others who wear their jeans super tight but I wouldn't take the tags off. Momotaros are known for having very little stretch

    If they're an unsanforized 701, you're out of luck. Return them. They will never be big enough for you. They may stretch a tad, but will shrink down dramatically when washed, soaked, etc. They are notoriously resilient denim and won't stretch a ton.

    Return them, save your money, and buy a size that works. It will cost less money that way than having to flip a pair once they're washed after being beat up and then buy new.

    I'm in the same boat as he. It worked for me, though. Don't forget that after the denim is washed/soaked, the fabric get's really soft and more comfortable. I'd recommend wearing the raw for a long time and a shower soak/wash when the time is there.

    Unless you have a super small penor, you are going to be in pain. Trust me.

    I had this mentality with Glow in the dark Naked and Famous jeans in a size 32 when I wear a 33. I wore them but then I realized they weren't stretching and my penor was always uncomfortable. Now I am trying to sell them and no one is interested in buying. What makes it worse is that I paid msrp and I could have sized up.

    Return them, your penor will thank you.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the advice. Gonna return them. Might as well spend the extra dough on a pain-free pair.

    So I want to try again and get a pair of Momos that fit. I live in a tropical climate, so id prefer some that are 15 oz. or under, in a lighter shade of indigo. Narrowed it down to the Grand Indigos and the Copper Label tight straight. Which would you guys suggest out of those two?
    My waist measures 29.5". I wear a 28 in Naked & Famous Weird Guys, and a 28-29 in Skinny guys,
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
