    any of you guys ever put starch on the back of your knees to keep the wrinkles in place?

    do you mean spray bottle with a solution of starch and water, or just dihydrogen monoxide?

    i must admit, it feels kinda good. also, why does starch contribute to higher contrast fades? i saw your post in the newb jawnz thread and got confused. i thought sop was to soak jeans to get rid of the excess starch so we can get to rubbing off the indigo dye from the get go.

    no, just tap water. i dont know what post your referring to. i just use water to sometimes set in the creases a little better after a wash. rarely do i use it if ive been wearing the jeans for weeks.

    I'm really not a fan of those. The combs look really weird and considering he got those tapered they are hella baggy below the knee.

    Well, the combs do indeed look somewhat strange, like I mentioned before. But the fit of his jeans actually is very good, considering it's a 0201.

    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!
