3sixteen 14.5oz Selvedge Indigo Denim Restocks: SL-100x & ST-100x


Another 3sixteen denim production of the ST-100x and SL-100x 14.5oz selvedge indigo was just released. Our shipment arrived today and we are now fully stocked on all sizes. All of the new 3sixteen denim productions are now using a new fabric which has been custom designed and made in Okayama, Japan which is exclusive to 3sixteen. There are also many small upgrades which combined with the slim silhouettes makes 3sixteen's new denim one of the best USA made slim fit denims on the market.

3sixteen's new denim is made with a 14.5oz high slub selvedge denim woven in Okayama, Japan which has been sanforized, skewed, and singed. Though the fabrics has been singed, it is still not heavily processed and the surface will have a hairiness and slub. What we like about it is that to the untrained eye, it looks clean and uniform (so it functions well as a dressier jean), but for someone who knows what they are looking for, they'll be able to spot some interesting facets about the textile.

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".

Close up of top left corner of coin pocket which has a hidden selvedge detail. Notice the subtle hint of pink selvedge showing along the edge just below the copper rivet.

Back side of copper rivets are custom engraved with Momotaro's peach symbol. Pocket bags are a heavy cotton gauze which is soft, yet very sturdy.

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 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".
