    Looking forward to Collab #4...current BMO collabs are just to skinny for my thighs. Love the denim and details on the Midnight Warrior.

    Sizing seems a little strange in the larger sizes of the Skinny Straight cut. Only important to mFor example, the Vintage Label Tight Straights are slimmer than the Skinny Straights:

    Momo 701 tag 36: 37" waist, 12.5" thigh, 9.75" knee
    JB0101 tag 36: 37" waist, 13" thigh, 10.25" knee
    BOM001 tag 36: 36" waist, 13.25" thigh, 10" knee


    Looking forward to seeing the Deep Indigo collabs, with any luck it'll be time for me to add another pair of jeans to the rotation in fall and I'll be able to pick one up. Current Deep Indigo has too short an inseam for me.

    Also Jay was exactly right on the JB0701s I bought, 1 week after purchasing they fit perfect. Stretched out just enough to be comfortable.

    I am considering getting a pair of 0702. And understand they are sanforized denim. However, would like to know how much they shrink and stretch?

    Sorry if this question have been answered.

    Momo 702 W33__ warm soak x2

    post-soak measurements:
    w=33.5
    f/rise= 10.5


    u/t= 12 from crotch &
    *11.5 from 2" below crotch__ w/c i found to be more accurate for thigh measurement
    ***thigh measurement is critical__ waist will eventually stretch.

    ins= 33.5
    ***make sure to make allowance for inseam shrinkage. my 702 was supposedly fully sanforized, but already got 1 full inch shrinkage @33.5 in 2 soaks.

    This is good to know - I have mine waiting in queue, but Jay had said they should be fine w/o soaking and fully sanforized. I will take them to water then!

    Thanks for the info - very useful. And interesting to see they shrunk 1" on the inseam with 2 x warm soaks.

    I had been wavering whether to buy deep or grand indigo Momo's then these Midnight Warriors came along and I knew they were exactly what I wanted.

    Thanks a lot Jay, got them very quickly.

    It's got all of the Momo niceties - pink selvedge threading, copper rivets on the inside.
    The picture below compares them to my Momo 701s and you can see that the color is truly indigo based.

    So far, fit unsoaked is spot on with Blue Owl's measurements on their website.

    My 701 are 33 but I bought a 34 in these to to start out with the same pre-soak waist measurement.
    They definitely run lower in the rise and even though I'm comparing a 33 to a 34, I feel like they're a little roomier in the seat
    and definitely roomier in the thigh.

    I'll soak them later this week and report back with the measurements.

    congrats! I have been considering a pair but I am not sure about the unsanfordized aspect


    Are you thinking about buying a pair? We wear the same size in NF WG so I figure your experience could help me out with my decision.

    Having just bought the deep indigos, I probably won't be getting in on this run of production. But I'm a sucker for Momotaros and will end up with a pair of Blue Owls eventually.

    Nice, I am currently working on a deep indigo pair as well.

    Do you have experience with momo already?

    Bought a pair of 705SPs off the B/S from Teger. Loved them with a passion. Probably the best constructed jean I've ever owned. Had to move them on as I got sucked into the Random Health & Exercise Thoughts Thread for nearly a year and indulged in squats and DLs
