20oz Super Heavy Black Sashiko Pants - Narrow Tapered
Momotaro - 20oz Super Heavy Black Sashiko Pants - Narrow Tapered
Super Heavyweight might be a little overzealous on this pair as they are some of the most comfortable pairs we've ever put on. They may be heavy, but the feel is incredible because of the loose weave and the single rinse. These are truly gobsmacking. They knocked us off our feet. It's everything that gets us and all of you excited. The world sashiko alone is enough to get those temperatures rising but it's also a 20oz fabric. Our signature black battle stripes just so happen to be the standard protocol on this pair. You'll also notice copper rivets as this is the standard 5 pocket model...it's just a basket weave fabric vs twill. They also piped the outseam to give them a super finished look when cuffed. We can't overstate how gorgeous these are and we hope they stick around long enough for you to snag a pair.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size 32 in these. They decided to make these pants in trouser sizes, which we don't quite understand but accept all the same. Luckily we land right in the middle with a 32. That's Tommy's standard size from Momo and these fit just the same. The narrow taper is slim without being too snug. They had plenty of room, were very comfy, and would probably stretch to a really nice point of fitting even nice. Tommy is 5'10" 165lbs with a 32-33" waist.
We felt very lucky to be a part of this limited edition "Year of the Rabbit" release. These were right up our alley with special little touches throughout. They really went above and beyond with the theme, starting with the rabbit mosaic. You have to look close, but you'll see little guys in an arctic colorway forming the GTB stripes. The hair on the patch is a really nice touch as well (it's not rabbit). There's custom details interworked throughout, including printed "Year of the Rabbit" pocket bags and jacquard liner. The interior is bonkers. There is of course all of Momo's standard, but incredible details. But, the capper has to be the peaking Rabbit laser engraved on the front coin pocket. It was a total surprise to us, and a happy one at that. The fabric is also an icon. The 13oz really shines with this one-wash treatment and is full of micro hairs and texture. We're so excited to be one of only two stores in all of the US even offering this denim! It's a rare one, that's for sure - we were only allowed to buy 10 pairs.
We've been looking for something a little wider than the narrow taper, and we've found just that. This Wide Straight, also known as the classic straight is just the thing to break you out of your slim jeans. We started our initial run of Momotaro with 16oz denim due to the texture, but again and again, received requests for the 15.7oz. This is Momo's iconic "Vintage Label" denim. The lore about its fading potential is heard far and wide
For our initial run with this denim, we went with black battle stripes to make the denim a little more subtle. Due to requests, we had to bring back the black stripe in this 15.7oz fabric. We've seen fades on these down the line, and we can't bring ourselves to move on from the black. It'll be something we're always drawn to. The black will sluff off more naturally with the denim, and from what we now know, will stand out nicely against a heavily faded pair. This is crocking that makes perfect sense.
These are truly gobsmacking. They knocked us off our feet. It's everything that gets us and all of you excited. We've had so many requests for Sashiko fabric in the last few months and this might just be the perfect pair. Our signature black battle stripes have been added to this pair making them a rarity in the denim hunter world. You'll also notice copper rivets as this is the standard 5-pocket model...it's just a basket weave fabric vs twill. They also piped the busted outseam to give them a super finished look when cuffed. We can't overstate how gorgeous these are and we hope they stick around long enough for you to snag a pair.
It was easy to see this denim was special, even though we never got to see it in person until it arrived. But, my goodness is it fancy. This is the definition of a "Legacy" denim. It's got so much texture and hair that we had trouble capturing it in images. While some of the fancy bells and whistles Momo is known for, such as the pink inseam and ticker stuck around, they really brought this one back to basics. There's a gorgeous left pocket "Peach" arcuate that we've been waiting for, for ages. We can't say enough about this Zimbabwe Cotton either. They've infused it with Silk this round for a nice hand feel and tons of character. It screams vintage. We can only expect even more great things in its future.
We're really jazzed that Sashiko hasn't taken on an entirely new life in 2022. It's clearly a central theme of Momotaro's entire collection for fall. It used to be a rarity that would sell out and leave people wanting more. Well now, we have the real deal from one of the original companies that brought it to popularity in multiple colors and a myriad of styles. This is one we're particularly happy to see come down the pipeline. The submarine jacket, with its stand collar, roomy fit, and oversized pockets is one of our all-time favorite silhouettes. It's an easy layering piece with a ton of character and an aptitude for fading. Plus, it's royal blue. What could go wrong?
