    Momotaro 701 :: 15.7 oz :: 100% Zimbabwe cotton :: SU1 @W34 :: fit :: double hot soaked :: current measurements : w= 33.75, ins [hemmed]= 33, f/rise= 10, b/rise= 14, u/t= 12.25, kne= 9, l/o= 8.5 :: fit & measurement__ exactly like PBJ 007 'cept on the leg opening.

    newly painted acrylic " Inversed" GTB stripe [low-profile]. i find the white stripe a bit too much of an attention grabber, so i made them sorta low-profile & stealthy [ei.,while denim is still raw+dark]. hence, the "Special Ops" concept/version.

    [​IMG]
    the denim is still stiff & starchy even after the double hot soak__ will take a few days for it to adopt to my contours.




    Update: 7 mos old= 4 mos effective wear :: 7 soaks X n0 wash

    Finally took some pics of my Momotaro x Context 0701MCXX. Owned for 9 months but more like ~ 5 months equivalent wear. One hot soak before first wear, no washes yet although it's probably about time. Fades are coming in nicely! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    tnx, guys.

    @pistolero__ yea, agree with w/e123, fit is spot on [right now]. i see more linear whiskering. hope you dint size down too much. not that it's really bad, just more work stretching them back out evertime you wash.

    IIIrd you repainted the battle stripes?
    "Stealth Stripes"? more like recreated__ they're 701s with blank pockets, originally.

    I also got lineair whiskering going on on my G00'7's. But I've only worn them for about 3 days now and they are one wash. They will stretch a bit, resulting in a perfect fit. For now, the topblock is really on the tight side, just not being uncomfortable. And it's a bitch to button up at the moment.

    I'm not really sure though if I should cuff or let them stack.

    Thanks, they are tagged size 34. I'm about to wash them for the first time, hopefully they won't shrink too much. I love how they fit right now.

    IIIrd, are your Momos 0701 or 0705? They look great!

    Yes I would say TTS. The whole "partially sanforized" thing kind of threw me when I was trying to figure out sizing, I never did figure out if these were supposed to shrink less than the raw 0701s. I'll try to take pre/post wash pics, I'm curious how much they'll shrink.

    FWIW, all Momotaro denim that's "partially sanforized" shrink up the same amount. Being 1 to 1.5 in waist area and 2 to 2.5 on inseam.

    The ones that won't shrink are the one wash models.

    that is true except my 0705bigs are "sanforized," and they shrunk about a 1/2" in the waist and inseam and about a 1/4" in the rises, upper-thigh, knee and hem ... which isnt really anything. i think those 0701mcxx's will just shrink back to the state they were after you hot soaked them. i guess they could come in a little bit more but if they do it would likely be minimal. that cut was made for pistolero ... those look awesome and i hate you!

    True, but we discussed this through PM allready. BiG explicitly states that the collab they made wouldn't shrink. It's mentioned with the sizetable for the 0705BiG.

    Other than that, I'm 100% accurate :p

    And I hate pistolero too, for having a pair of Context x Momo's. Should cop those myself soon, but I allready have two pair of Momo's.

    i think they mention it will shrink 1-2% with a wash, which it does, but its really not much at all. http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28

    does anyone know if context will continue to stock the 0701mcxx? they are out of my usual momotaro size, but if i had to i could get away with a 33.

    Probably not, since they are produced as a limited batch, 180 pairs made, if I'm correct.

    True, but normally they mention shrinkage in inches (for reference, look at other models on BiG website).

    Partially sanforized denim would shrink more than fully sanforized denim, so what you have experienced makes sense.

    Interestingly, BiG makes no mention of the "partially sanforized" Momo models being partially sanforized. For all intents and purposes, they are marketed as unsanforized denim models there. Context does explicitly state that their collab model is partially sanforized, though.

    haven't seen the Context collab personally, but [to my observation & understanding] the 15.7oz Zimbabwean cotton that BiG got in stock [ie, 201, 701, 705SP, 705BIG] are same/identical partiallly sanforized shizzle. the only obvious defference is the sizing on the 705BiG RAW__ which are shrink from tag. my guess is, that the O/W lot were set aside & washed before sewing on the patch [that reflected actual post wash waist measurement].

    just ask Gordon__ mystery solved.
