    I'm on a jeans ban until January 2016(!) as I broke the last jeans ban 24 times!!!

    My next jeans will definitely be Momotaro as a change from my usual Pbjs or Naked and Famous or custom Kurabo

    I love the tight weave of the denim!

    How does the old blue Selvedge fade?

    sweet, so everyone except me has the 1705... i'll ask once more, any fit / fade pics? :)

    $330 seems very pricey on cultizm, if i remember correctly they were only $200 in BIG.

    Cultizm have to subtract VAT from their prices for US buyers, but even with that extra, it still seems a bit steep.

    I think I paid like $225 from BiG last year. I spoke to Jay at Blue Owl this past summer, and he mentioned that they were going to stock them this S/S.

    ^^ Yes, I paid $225 for the 1705s in mid 2013 from BiG. Haven't worn them like my 702s or 702BRs but they don't seem like they're going to do much in the way of fading compared to the darker, heavier denim. I got them primarily for use in the summer.

    actually, the 702 denim has high contrast fade potential, but not in the [usual] way since it has dyed weft, after all.
    Ataris @pocket edges & creases surface within a couple weeks of wear.

    ironically, had to let go of mine cuz i loved the denim so much that i want to make sure i'd be able to keep longer. so, i replaced the 702s with a future-sized 202SP. SU1 @W34 :slayer: ... will post when able

    Why size up on the 02xx cut? You can go TTS easily on these or even one down.

    ^202SPs are O/W. TTS @W33 were good & tight just right @waist. i have to admit it was a good fit TTS. but, as mentioned, i intended to "future-size" on them. i want them to fit comfy like my Cisco or 811s, instead of slim like the 701/702s or PBJ 007

    from experience, denim jeans [in general] tend to have residual shrinkage down the line ... as they're washed more regularly. i want to make sure i get to keep/wear them past 5yrs, at least ... barring unexpected weight gain

    That's super good looking for just a "comfort" cut.

    I guess 15.7 oz, like OW GTB Label. Or 14.7. Most denims from Momo come in those weights.

    Good fit on those IIIrd.

    Thanx guys!

    'Guess they're in for the long haul ... glad I sized up. Felt like they're identical w/the Ciscos. I'll check comparative measurements when I get a chance

    Snuck my altered BOM006 to work today. Haven't had many chances to wear them. They fit pretty much like a pair of SLP 17.5 cm now in the leg.

    Hello, I am going to buy my first pair of Momos, I am looking for a straight slim fit and I am choosing between the 0201 and 0701. I am looking at different charts but there is always a difference in measurements.

    -I hear momotaro jeans dont strecth, just a bit, is this true?
    -How much are they going to srink in the waist after first soak? BIG says two inches and BOW says one inch in the waist. I guess 0.5 for the rest must be right

    it seems that the 0201 has roomy tights, is this correct?


    cheers!

    Although the 201 might be described as "slim" in some places, I really don't think it is a slim fit at all, and the thighs are not that narrow. The 701 is definitely a slimmer fit than the 201, but still not really "slim". Both these are unsanforized so yes, they will definitely shrink. Not sure if you're set on unsanforized denim because my opinion is that unsanforized denim is always a crap shoot as to whether you'll really end up with the fit that you want. There are some that swear by unsanforized denim but I now personally feel safer with sanforized raw denim.

    And yes, Momos are known for not stretching very much. Having said all that, I have three pairs of Momos and they are great. Good luck.
