    ^they're like a cross between my sam 5000ais & pbj 007s [ie. in terms of fabric concept]__ only much darker & w/o the slubs.
    they fit slimmer @tts than my 701s. which were su1.
    these will be my official [not-so, but close to] black jeans
    i'll try to hold onto the dark sheen as long as i can__ not in a hurry to wear them in.

    I just got mine, but can't justify starting another pair as of yet...

    Understandable.

    I mean, knock a few back, and peruse SF looking to pick up second-hand denim. There could be worse drunk outlets :D

    Does anyone have any 0201 fit pics? Considering kopping a pair, interested to know how they fit.

    I've posted pics a long time Agpo. They should be in this thread or in the "How you rock'em jeans" thread.

    So the general consensus is that momo's don't stretch much post wash? In this case I should go TTS or size down 1?

    It is generally recommended to go TTS with most of Momotaro's cuts. I have even heard of people sizing up on some of their slimmer cuts, but I've always gone TTS on this brand.

    Thanks for the help! I really want to go to NY to try them on in person. For now I'll scour B&S and eBay because I don't know if I can justify spending 300 on a pair of jeans right now.

    what's your size? 201s are TTS. on 701s, TTS is doable if you don't have thigh issues. nevertheless, i did SU1 on them.. never size down.

    there's a couple of Momo pairs [@almost new condition] up for sale that i know of. Ganja's GI w32 & eyeq8402's 701 w34. there's always something up on sale, not cuz there's something wrong with the quality, but cuz kids keep sizing down or insisting/trying to make [certain cuts] work for them__ against advice of the experienced.

    My waist measures 34 and my thigh's aren't the biggest, I think I had issues with my N&F weird guys in the thighs because I got a size 30...

    Can you link to these two jeans you speak of? Can't see them in the B&S

    Things like this are why the B/S can be awesome.

    These should work for you: its the tagged-34 listing. A fantastic deal.

    Ah, saw these but unfortunately the inseam is a bit short considering I'm 194 cm (6'4") and I need around a 35, more if I want to cuff/stack. Also the thigh is 12.25 but after shrinking might be a bit too tight for me. But the BiG site lists the 701's as having a bigger thigh.
