    Yes, the thigh stretches, but not quickly.

    Tag 32 - - 34.4" waist, 10.65" rise, 11.5" thigh, 8.65" knee, 35" inseam, 7.75" leg opening

    how does the leg opening stretch back out when theres not much pressure being exerted in that spot? the weight of the stacks pushing the leg opening against your shoes? but i guess also from cuffing

    Yeah - I've just never seen a pair with said arucate before. Thought they were a Blue Owl touch (mirroring the crescent moon in the logo). Not the case though.

    I am thinking of buying a pair of Momotaro 0201 jeans, anyone here who got a pictures of them while wearing?
    Can you compare the fit to a pair of APC New Standards? Also how about soaking before wearing because of the shrinkage, how does that work?
    Just filling a bath tube full with hot water en put them in there without anything else?

    Thanks in advance,

    201 should be a bit more relaxed than the NS, despite also being a straight leg. I suspect they could fit fairly similarly with proper sizing, but in general I'd expect a straight, slightly looser fit.

    Thank you, and how about sizing? True to size or should I size down?

    Whatever you do, don't size down. I sized down less than with any other raw denim I've owned and they were ludicrously tight. I thought it would be ideal to barely be able to do up the button when new. Instead, they stayed tight for a couple weeks. The I fell down some stairs after a bit of drinking and the top button popped right off. If anyone wants some 0701s cheap, and doesnt mind replacing a button hit me up.

    Both is possible, depends on your build.

    By the way... the 0201 looks like a straight jean, but it is a tapered fit (from knee down). Look a page or two back, shrinkage has been discussed numerous times here.

    0701 is a different fit dude. Read ;)

    @ El_Argentino: The Blue Owl arc comment was hilarious. I almost pissed in my pants.

    Clearly. The point is the Zimbabwe cotton has much less stretch than almost anything else on the market. Read the measurements, go by that. Just don't expect momos you buy uncomfortably tight to stretch out.
