    Momotaro x Blue Owl: Introducing the Deep Indigo Skinny Striaght Model BOM003 [​IMG]
    We are proud to introduce the third denim in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series. With our 3rd collaboration we wanted something that creates incredible high contrast fading and uses a super dark indigo, so we looked at the newly released Deep Indigo 0702 for a little inspiration. Our version is similar to the 0702 in that it uses the same super dark pure indigo on the warp yarns and the same sulpher dye on the weft yarns. The difference is our version is slightly heavier at 15.7oz, comes in the unsanforized state (shrink-to-ft), and made in the "Skinny Straight" fit which is slimmer than any of Momotaro's standard fits. Momotaro x Blue Owl "Deep Indigo" Skinny Straight 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM003 * The "skinny straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, runs slim in the leg, and tapers from the thigh to the leg opening. * 15.7oz unsanforized raw selvedge * Expect the denim to shrink approximatley .5" in the waist and 1" in length during the first wash. * Super dark pure indigo warp, sulphur dyed weft * Deer skin patch * Pink selvedge, pink interior thread - both representing the peach from the "Momotaro" folklore story. * Cotton canvas pocket bags * Antique copper rivets, hidden back pocket rivets * 100% Zimbabwe cotton * 100% natural cotton thread * Available in sizes 29-34, 36 * Made in Japan * Limited to 40 pairs for the first production.

    torn between the 701 and 702.

    for those that own the 702, what do you wear with it? also, does it shrink much after a soak like the 701 will?

    I just wear basics with them. The jeans must speak for themselves in this case. It really stands out. But they go well with black, white, grey, blue. They won't shrinkas much as the 0701's, the 0702's are sanforized.

    Short owners of Momotaro (5'8''>), do you like to stack the 37 inch inseam, or hem them to right length?

    I'm about your height and, as a general rule, I hem to about 30.5" - 31.5" for some stacking...

    I'm looking a picking up a pair of Momotaro in the near future. My only really experience with good denim is APC. I currently own a 2 year old pair of APC Rescue in size 30. They fit well now, but it took a lot of time to break in. Even now, I find the waist a bit too big, though the thighs perfect. Any idea what I should go for, in terms of sizing? Do they shrink much, or stretch a lot? I understand APC stretch a bit more than standard denim. And how should I treat them, in terms of soaking them or anything.
    Cheers, and sorry for the noob questions.

    They shrink about an inch in the waist and two in length. They won't stretch much though. Applies to Vintage Label only by the way.

    I forget the username, but a momo stockist on sufu says he always advises sizing down 1 on vintage label b/c they do stretch out...

    Will the waist stretch out or is the 1 inch loss permanent?

    My experience is very little stretch on the vintage label.

    Advice is just the same as always - nail the thigh fit, or you're going to be uncomfortable and eventually flip them. Waists can be controlled (or tolerated) far better.
