    I was able to stretch back to pre-shrunk levels and perhaps even more. I cold soaked for 30 min or so, and after I put them on immediately. It was really difficult as it shrunk quite a bit all over, but I eventually got them on and buttoned fully after 30-45 minutes of wearing them and trying every 5 min or so to get them on more.

    While I was getting them on and after, I specifically tried to stretch out the thigh area by doing leg exercises.

    With that said, I did get the knee bulge as a result of the leg exercises while jeans being wet. So while you can get them to pre-shrunk levels (not in terms of length and below the knee), it may result in a slight bulge at the knees if you overdo it.

    For those of you in the LA area I wandered into the Santa Monica location of Wasteland and saw a pair of Momo 0701 size 34 in very new condition but they seemed to have a short inseam (~30") for $95. Good deal if you know they'll fit you.

    Momotaro: The New Copper Label G017-MB [​IMG][​IMG] Introducing the newest denim release from Momotaro - Copper Label Tight Straight G017-MB. The Copper Label is one of the core series produced by Momotaro which up until now we have not stocked, but we are glad to have in store now. The Copper Label denims feature copper accent hardware and a 14.7oz weight selvedge which is slightly lighter compared to the other Momotaro denim series. What makes this release special is the indigo used. Prior to this release, the Copper Label denims featured more vintage style indigos being much lighter shades of indigo and more true to the originals they are modeled after. The new release is a deep indigo that is the same pure indigo used on the Vintage Label denims like the 0701 and on the Going to Battle denims like the 0705sp. Momotaro Copper Label 14.7oz "Tight Straight" Raw Selvedge Denim - Model G017-MB * Momotaro's "tight straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, runs slim in the leg, and tapers slightly torwards the leg opening. * 14.7oz selvedge one wash (washed one time using sea water from Okayama coast) * Rope dyed deep blue pure indigo * Flannel pocket bags and back yoke lining dyed in pure indigo * 1/8" thick cowhide leather patch branded with the Momotaro "Japan Blue" logo * Stitching of peach logo on back right pocket * Copper rivets and buttons all engraved with Momotaro logos * Pink selvedge, pink interior thread - both representing the peach from the "Momotaro" folklore story. * 100% Zimbabwe cotton * 100% natural cotton thread * Available in sizes 28-34, 36 * Made in Japan [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm in the same situation, my perfect size would be somewhere between 34 and 36 on the JB x Momotaro 701s. I sized down to 34 and picked out the biggest one Jay at Blue Owl had. Looking through some earlier posts in this thread, it sounds like after a couple of weeks they'll soften up and stretch out in the waist. I can actually button mine up easily and move around without any problems, but they're still a little tight.

    Is the tight straight roomier than the Naked and Famous weird guy cut?

    I am currently wearing a N&F WG 33, that is loose on the waist a bit but I can not size down any further because of my thighs.

    I do not want to go with a pair that is going to give me more space below the knee as I really like how these WG fit that area, but I also do not want to gain a lot of space below the knees.

    What do you guys suggest I go with?

    How much do N&F stretch after wear, I was told MOMO stretches 1 inch around the waist and .5 an inch in the thigh area after 3-4 weeks of wear.

    Thanks for the help.

    N&F WG Deep Indigo measurements

    * Size 33 (35" waist, 10.5" rise, 12.25" thigh, 8.8" knee, 35.5" inseam, 7.75" leg opening)

    MOMO tight straight measurements

    * Size 33 (34" waist, 10.5" rise, 11.75" thigh, 8.8" knee, 34.5" inseam, 8.1" leg opening)

    * Size 34 (35" waist, 10.5" rise, 12" thigh, 9" knee, 34.5" inseam, 8.25" leg opening)

    We're wearing the same size. I wear WG 33 (again, waist is big and thighs are just about as small as they can be). I had a pair of the 705sp (Tight Straights) in a 34 that were glorious until I started bulking again. Thighs got too small, had to move them along. Have ended up going w/ a 36 in the 702 and fits like a dream. End story - thigh on the 34 Tight Straight will be smaller than your 33 WG, but the lower leg will be ever so slightly larger - not enough to bug me personally, but it is all preference. WG is the sharpest taper that I've personally worn.

    N&F is pretty well known for stretching when needed (esp the waist). Momo can vary. Jay can also get you a "small" 36 that should keep the waist from being too billowy while giving you just enough space in the thigh.

    No - the Momo "tight stright" cut is less tapered overall and slimmer in the top block than N&F Weird Guy. Also, the Momos (assuming you're asking about the Vintage Label denim) will not stretch as much as WG; after 1.5 years my 0705SP have stretched less than 1" in the waist and maybe 1/2" in the thighs...tops. Blue Owl's measurements are really accurate, so use that as a guide, just don't count on the Momo's to stretch to fit you especially in the top block.

    I recall Jay from Blue Owl mentioning in this thread that he was working on a Momo collab that would fit more like the WG cut...you might wait to see what becomes of that.
