Momotaro - 15.7oz - Zimbabwe Selvedge Custom Black Battle Stripes - Wide Straight
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.
Momotaro always includes signature details, and this pair is no different.

Fit Notes: Tommy is wearing a size 32 in these. That's his classic Momotaro size, and while these have a much wider fit in the leg, they don't really change much in the waist. They're a classic straight leg with a mid-rise. We would recommend sizing up once from your normal size, or sticking with your standard Momo size if you already know it. Tommy is 5'10," 165lbs with between a 32-33" waist.
