Fade of the Day – Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM006-S (3 Years, 7 Washes)
Holy fades bro! No, these aren’t acid-washed or pre-faded, they’re the real deal. Chicago resident Collin Enke has killed his Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM006-S over the three years he’s been cruising the streets of his hometown. Despite the obvious wear-and-tear he’s managed to keep these jeans looking wearable.
The back pockets alone could probably warrant a post of their own, thanks to Momotaro’s signature “Going to Battle” stripes, and the stacked cuff creasing is superbly developed. Note the crazy contrast between the nearly-white thighs and the deep blue indigo of the inner waistband. During their lifetime these Momotaro x Blue Owl jeans have been washed seven times, and have required some repairs (all done at Mildbend in Chicago), along with some DIY patchwork by the wearer himself.
