I have to chime in that my 0705SPs (I feel) are quite flattering, despite them being the "tight straight" model. I think that's the most appropriate description for them, not really crossing the line into a "skinny jean" but being appropriately both tight and straight. Despite them being the slimmest jean I'll wear in good conscience, I don't for a moment feel uncomfortable or awkward in them (as opposed actually to my PBJ007s, a "slim-straight" where sometimes something feels just off, be it the rise, thigh, whatever). I do love the understatedness of the design. They are just "basic jeans" as far as aesthetic goes, as in looking fairly normal (and I'll agree durable). But conversely, I think it's those small details like the white/pink selvage line, the pink seam stitch on the interior of the leg, the pockets that are just between medium sized and large, and yes, the rep, that make them quite a product. (I do really love my battle stripes too). Online, looking at them on BiG months ago, I had absolutely no desire to buy a pair cold - I was drawn to the slub of PBJ denim as my first step into big-time Japanese offerings. But, I picked up my pair of Momos off B&S for about half retail, and I LOVE them. For future purchases, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to throw down for a full priced pair now. They are a genuinely quality product, and I appreciate their artisanal quality. (Edit) - forgot to add: I appreciate too that their sizing is so exact. Like was said earlier, a 34 won't fit unless you're an actual 34. Refreshing in the retail world, even if it means going up a digit on your size.
