    If you're going to work out so much that you'd qualify as an extra for the next "Conan the barbarian" remake, just cut your Momotaros into a denim loin cloth and stop posting about how all of a sudden your jeans don't fit. These Japanese jeans aren't designed for your beefcake body-building lifestyle. Go bespoke, or go invest in some elastic blend stretchpants.

    -1 for Christmas-ham thighs. :foo:

    This is prolly a better post for bodybuilding.com bodyspace forums. But yeah, quads can and do grow alot. It would be impossible for anyone to predict how much yours will without first knowing your height, weight, daily calorie intake, metabolism, how often and how you work out your legs, etc.

    That said, they wont grow overnight. So you don't have to worry about Bruce Bannering out of your $300 jeans the morning after your next legs workout. You look like you have enough room in those to grow at least a half inch in diameter on each leg on those before they're too small.

    Shot in the dark... I'd say you got a good 3 months of heavy squats, chicken breasts, and protein shakes before you outsize those 701s.

    Who are you directing this hostility to? If its at me, you've failed because clearly I don't look anything like an extra in Conan the Barbarian, nor do I have what I think you mean by "christmas-ham thighs" or a beefcake body-building lifestyle (lol). If it's at Rightyow77, you've failed as well because clearly he wasn't the one that was asking questions about fit and whatnot.

    Dear Momotaro,

    Please produce a raw, sanforized, black on black, black overdyed jean, without battle stripes, in a 70x cut.

    Best Regards,

    Me.

    I've been wearing JB 701s for about two months and have significant fraying on the non-selvedge inseam side as well as a small tear/hole nearby on the top of one of my cuffs.

    I know some fraying is inevitable but it seems way too soon for such significant damage. I see solid pics from 6/9/12+ months of wear with no visible fraying on the inseams.

    Am I wearing them wrong? What's the deal?

    PS: Momo 0702s should arrive by the end of the week [​IMG]

    Do they drag at all on the ground? Do you wear shoes w/ something obtruding (ie speed hooks) that could snag pants?

    All wear differently.

    Agreed. Momotaro needs a black jean. Since Momotaro does not do sanforized, maybe Japan Blue will hook you up.

    But as for Momotaro...

    I'd like Momotaro do a classic black jean (any colored stitching) in 15.7oz with or without black battle stripes, in the classic 201, 701, and 901 cuts. This should be a permanent addition to their lineup.

    Blue Owl came close...but not quite.. with their Midnight Warrior collabs. I'd like to see Momo Vintage do a black jean..Tate and Yoko... still out there?...Blue Owl...Midnight Warrior2/Nubian Warriors?

    Introducing the Momotaro x Blue Owl "Midnight Warrior" Tapered BOM005 [​IMG] Our 5th collaboration with Momotaro features a tapered version of the "Midnight Warrior" design from our first collaboration, the BOM001. It is a creative denim that uses a super dark indigo 15.7oz fabric with black stitching and details that makes the denim look black, yet will fade to a beautiful indigo full of variations and the black battle stripes. Momotaro x Blue Owl "Midnight Warrior" Tapered 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM005 * The "tapered" fit has never been produced by Momotaro. This fit has been borrowed from the Japan Blue line. The fit is slim in the top block, has a medium rise, enough room in the thigh to be comfortable, and begins to taper from the upper thigh all the way to the leg opening. * 15.7oz sanforized raw selvedge * Deep blue pure indigo denim using super-dense 6s yarn * Deer skin patch * Pink selvedge, pink interior thread - both representing the peach from the "Momotaro" folklore story. * Going to Battle" stripes are a symbol of Japanese tradition representing honor and strength. The warrior stripes also represent the flag carried by "Momotaro" in the original folklore story. * 100% Zimbabwe cotton * 100% natural cotton thread * Available in sizes 28-34, 36 * Made in Japan * Limited to 60 pairs for the first production [​IMG][​IMG]

    BOM005 measurements appear to be a lot slimmer compared to BOM004.

    Watching that black-indigo fade is going to be such a treat. I'm jealous of whoever buys a pair...

    Do the "black" part of indigo-black (like bomo03) ever fade?
