    I am looking for a quality vs price vs fit comparison for Momotaro x Japan blue tight straight fit against rogue territory indigo stanton selvage. I wear a 30 in the stantons, is the fit the same, or is it slimmer?

    I gave my JB701s a quick wash last night in cold water. About a minute of agitation inside-out with detergent, another minute with clean water to rinse them out, and then a hang dry. Of note, they shrank 1" in inseam, despite being sanforized.

    I was hoping for this and they're now the perfect length for me (mine are unhemmed), just an FYI in case any of you out there are having yours hemmed beforehand.

    So after a couple hours hot soak:

    Inseam shrank a bit more than 1"
    Waist shrank almost 2"
    Thigh was minimal shrink.

    Looks like I got some stretching out to do.

    I think I did fine by sizing up 1" from my 701s.

    Is there a store near DC that carries the 201 and 701/710's to try on?

    Hey im about to buy my first pair of Momotaros. What cut would be the skinniest? So far 0705BIG is the skinniest cut i saw so far.

    Just wondering if any of you guys can recommend some cuts? I wear a 34-36 with bigger thighs if that helps

    thanks

    Look at the new Momotaro x Blue Owl collabs. Very slim with a serious taper. Also the Japan Blue x Momo Skinny cut.

    ^Thanks,

    found out that G017 MB is the skinniest they had on Blue Owl, but might go with the 0705SP instead.

    Would it be a bad idea to have these jeans altered for a smaller leg opening?

    This fit is amazing. Any chance that Momotaro will come out with something similar for their products that are collabs with Japan Blue?
