Momotaro "Going to Battle" 0705sp Tight Straight Selvedge Denim - Restocked!


The Momotaro 0705sp has become a very popular model for our store and our first restock just arrived. The "Going to Battle" series uses the same 15.7oz selvedge fabric as used on the Vintage Label line, except the "Going to Battle" series is a one wash denim. The denim has been washed one time using sea water from Okayama coast. The wash shrinks the fabric down so that it is ready to wear as is and no further shrinkage is expected. It also has less starch and is less rigid compared to the Vintage Label, making it comfortable to wear immediately, yet it will still produce amazing fades from prolong wear. The fit is the same "tight straight" fit which is the same as the Vintage Label 0701, but since the fabric is a one wash the measurements will be different and the fabric will lay differently. Please use the posted measurements to choose your size, or contact us for sizing advice.

Momotaro "Going to Battle" 15.7oz "tight straight" raw selvedge denim - model 0705sp. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36. Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro "Going to Battle" 15.7oz "tight straight" raw denim, click here.

The "Going to Battle" stripes is one of the signature designs of the Momotaro label. The "Going to Battle" stripes are a symbol of Japanese tradition representing honor and strength. The warrior stripes also represent the flag carried by "Momotaro" in the original folklore story.

The fabric is a 15.7oz super-dense 6s yarn made with 100% Zimbabwe cotton and dyed to a deep blue natural indigo. The fabric has a hairy surface with a good amount of slub and character.

Custom engraved buttons with Momotaro logos along the button fly.

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".
