You know Momotaro, but do you know about their 0306-82IE Tight Tapered 16 oz. US Revival Cotton Jeans? They’re the slim tapered Momos that you’ve been looking for, not just because of their super slim-cut that nicely hugs your butt, but because of their nicely textured Collect Mills 16 oz. raw selvedge denim, woven from USA-sourced long-staple cotton.
Take it from a guy who looks at denim all day: this is some good shit. The long-staple cotton is grown in the US and spun into slub yarns before being woven by Collect Mills. It’s gonna age beautifully, like the way a slightly textured and slightly heavier weight fabric does – don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out Heddels Fades for some inspiration, or cop a pair and be a pioneer of this fabric, please!
They’re sanforized, so take ’em tight, but not too tight – they’re going to stretch out an inch or two in the waist and seat. These “Tight Tapered” jawns are all detailed Momotaro style: Tonal “Going to Battle” stripes painted on the back pocket in lieu of arcuates, peach-colored selvedge ID and inseam thread, embossed metal hardware throughout, rivet and bar tack reinforcements, heavyweight Jacquard pocket bags, and a heavy leather Momotaro patch on the waist with one of the most iconic pieces of branding in Japanese denim history.
