Momotaro's "tight straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, runs slim the leg, and has a gradual taper down the leg towards the leg opening. The fabric is custom designed by Rampuya denim mill exclusively for the Momotaro label. It is a deep blue natural indigo 15.7oz selvedge using super-dense 6s yarn Zimbabwe cotton. The fabric is shrink-to-fit, thus the denim will need to be soaked to confirm all shrinkage has settled. Expect the denim to shrink approximately 1" in the waist and 2" in the length during the first wash/soak. Waist line will stretch back out with consistent wear.

The pink selvedge and pink thread along the interior inseam are common features of Momotaro denim. The pink (peach) color has come to represent both the region of Okayama (which is known for peaches) and the peach from the Japanese folklore story of "Momotaro".

Clean, minimalist design. Deer skin patch.

Custom engraved buttons featuring the Momotaro peach.

Selvedge inside coin pocket is a small detail only known by the wearer.
