    MOMOTARO!

    That's Ryan Huber's (from Context Clothing) pair. Picture was allready at denimdebate.com for a while.

    I'm pretty sure he wore them for just under a year... yeah don't think he even made it to the one year mark, and then switched to the MomotaroXContext collab.

    I think they are hanging in the shop now. Really sweet pair. He wore the shit out of them.

    Yep just looked at denimdebate, he wore them for 9 months:

    The are now at approximately 9 months of wear with two cold soaks. After the second soak, I rode around on my bike while they were wet to dry them and allow them to form to my body. I have yet to take post soak measurements, but I intend to. I had our denim repair specialists repair the following: usual crotch reinforcement, knee, small hole in back wallet pocket. You can see my motorcycle key breaking through in the coin pocket. I have officially retired these to the Context wall and have been wearing my Momotaro + Context Grand Indigo Selvage 0701MCXX exclusively for just over a month now. I am continually impressed with the quality of the fade that occurs in Momotaro fabric. I'll have to compile a list of substances I've spilled on my 0701′s. You'll have to stick to the list if you want to achieve the same fade qualities. Here is a short list: beer, whiskey, sawdust, coffee, blood, and greenland wax.

    Check out that link, it is all his posts on that site, but shows pictures updates every few months, so you can see how they looked every few months.

    You must be really tall, or did you get a pair with a 36" inseam? Looks nice though... You've got some space in the top block/thigh area which isn't really flattering, but after the soak they should be fine I think.

    I went TTS. I actually like the way it looks now, but that just might be because i'm a newb.

    I'm 5'11", and this pair I got hemmed at BiG, i think Naoki hemmed it to like 34" or something for an expected 2" shrink post cold soak. thanks for the feedback. i just recieved the 32 201's that i bought from the BS SW&D which were hot soaked, and damn, those are tight. i'll post comparison pics when the 31's dry out.

    sorry ... i think they look great now as well. they will look a little better after you do a wash/soak and they relax just a bit [​IMG] but yeah, you sized perfectly. you wont be able to take them off! that denim has grown on me big time.

    Not want to ruin your excitement after having tried on a pair of Momo's... But you stated the 32 201's you've received were really tight, but you decided to go down another size on your new pair? You must be in for a lot of pain... Momo's are tight weave and don't give much.

    I got the 32's 2 weeks ago from BS SW&D, and got the 31's from BiG last week when I realized i liked that fit more after trying both sizes at the store. I was also advised to just cold soak the 31's since they were a perfect fit. The 32's just came from Poland today, and this was my first time trying them on. but they were hot soaked and machine dried. When the 31's finish drying in about 3 hours or so, I'll post comparison pics.

    32's Hot Soak + Hot Dry

    Overall, i feel like when you hot soak and dry something, it becomes painted on. perhaps the 32's will stretch out to become my favorite pair, but right now i prefer the 31's.

    what belt is that? is that a htc belt find? uNiCoRnPriNcEsSx: both look great. the 31s look a little tighter but they will stretch out some and will become a little more comfortable. well done. enjoy and wear pics as needed!
