    I feel you. But it's not my wife who wash my jeans but my mom. She find it wearing it for more than a week is too dirty and secretly wash my denim. Now I just hide my 0702 to prevent her from washing.

    Just got 2 Momotaro Chambray workshirts (red and black) today from http://www.and-japan.com/. I tried to get both at the Momotaro store in Aoyama Tokyo in October but they didnt have any without the stripes on the sleeve. Fit is probably the best ive ever had for a button up shirt. Both are awesome looking and well put together. Plus they were cheaper on and-japan they they were at the Momo store. And there was free FedEx shipping too.

    So, I got a pair of Japan Blue jb0102s (the color is absolutely incredible) but I have a question on the fit - I can't get the top 2 buttons buttoned right now, but it fits fine in the thigh and everywhere else. Do you think they will stretch enough for the top 2 to be buttoned? Any ideas on how to stretch them, or should I just wear them?

    I wear a 30 in N&F weird guy, 31 in N&F skinny guy so I got a 31 in Japan Blue and its fine everywhere but the waist...N&F always stretches a ton so not being able to button the top 2 is normal, but idk about Japan Blue.[​IMG]

    With the Japan Blues, you should be ok. I'd expect them to fit you w/in a day. Wear them hard.

    awesome thanks so much. I'll post a fit pic once I can get the damn things buttoned. I love them so far - way more sturdy than N&F (which was my intro into raw)

    Yes, you'll find quite a jump in quality (and satisfaction) even moving up to Japan Blue. It'll blow your mind when you are able to invest in something really solid, like Momotaro, Samurai, etc. Welcome to the forum.

    Not too harp on it anymore, but yes, you will get the top buttons on. Just wear a belt to conceal the fact that they are not buttoned, wear them around the house, etc. You'll get them on within the next day or so.

    Thighs won't stretch much and/or easy. You just could go by the measurements on BlueOwl.

    Can anyone comment on which other Momotaros fit similar to the Copper Labels? I love my copper labels, :slayer: and just thinking about my next pair.
