    I haven't seen much demand for that fit from my customers, but I can always special order a pair. Cost would be the same as the other fits. I get regular shipments from Momotaro now, and special orders are quite easy, but you got to know your right size. Just e-mail me if you don't have luck finding them anywhere else.

    What is the 901/905 fit? I had thought that the slimmest offering by them was the 701/705. Or is it something completely different?

    701/705 is "tight straight" and the slimmest fit made by Momotaro. Slimmer you can with Japan Blue. 901/905 is standard straight leg.

    Ah - I had been under the impression that the 201/205 models were a standard straight-leg.

    Technically all of these fits are straight leg. 701/705 is most modern and slimmest fit Momotaro makes. 201/805 is a slim straight (pretty similar to 701/705 but slightly more room in top block). 901/905 is classic straight repro fit.

    I will be stocking 201 in late fall.

    @ Satch those look fantastic.

    @ Jay-D I really want that Red Chambray, I wish I never purchased that pair from J-Crew now as well :(
