    I got the 0305-2G indigo/gray in 18oz. They say it is 2 sizes smaller so I got a 33 (my usual waist size would be 31). Honestly I could have sized up to an 34.. I have it more than a year, no wash before 6 month of daily wear, now 3-4 washes.. The thing is still pretty stiff and not comfortable at all. The leg opening is super narrow and I wear them when I want to put them in the boots, a can not get them over higher/ engineer boots.
    I have 3 momos and will start to sell them. I won't get more and prefer 3 sixteen and iron heart now. Better denim, better fit, better fading..

    Thanks for the info, they look indeed very narrow in the leg by the specs. I have 3sixteen st 120 17 oz, its great denim for sure, I don´t have experience with Iron Heart.

    My size 31 momo 0701 went from 32" to 31" after a cold soak & stretched back to 32" after one wear. My tummy could be exerting a strong force.

    Anybody here happens to have a new size 29 MOMOTARO JEANS G004-MB COPPER LABEL 14.7OZ that have not been worn or soaked yet?

    The various thigh measurements posted by different retailers are confusing me. Denimio posted 11.7", Okayama posted 11.5" and scout heddels posted 11.25".

    I know the G004 is one washed so i am assuming very minimal to no shrinkage in the thigh?

    I am so damn confused !!!

    Hello, I recently got the Momo 0701. Presoak fit is like I should size down one size if these were not shrink, should I size down?

    I am usually reluctant to use hot water with clothes, since it may affect the look or appearance of the fabric. These jeans look quite nice in this raw presoak state, is hot water going to affect this look somehow? it´s my first pair of unsanforized denim, sorry about the newbie questions.

    What size did u get Bower?

    It's better if u could measure the waist and thigh and factor in shrinkage if your denim is raw.

    0701 raw will shrink. Mine shrank 1" in the waist, 0.25" in the thigh and 2" in the inseam.

    Some guys in the Ironheart forum used boiling water and cooked their leather patch. Makes no difference to shrinkage if it's boiling or hot.

    I suggest a cold soak first to gauge your shrinkage for 1st soak. You can always do another warmer 2nd soak if u want more shrinkage.

    Take it easy pal. Don't rush.

    Soaking might soften them up a bit but won't dramatically affect the appearance.
    Wearing them will, though ...

    Thighs on the 0701 are hard/close to impossible to stretch. It would take prolonged wear to notice a different. I sized down in my 0701's and would not recommend it unless you know what you are doing. TTS is your best bet.

    True waist is 33... Should I go for 32s or 31st in 201s?

    You could size down one for a trimmer fit.

    I take it these don't stretch much due to the weave?

    Momotaro's are a tight weave indeed. You can get some stretch in the waist but don't expect wonders.
