Momotaro x Blue Owl "Vintage" Skinny Straight 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM002


With our 2nd denim in the Momotaro x Blue Owl collaboration series, we wanted something clean and minimalistic, something with no additional embellishments that will satisfy any denim purist, and we wanted a slim modern fit. We feel the best denim that Momotaro makes is the Vintage Label 0701, thus we did not change a single detail except for the fit. This collaboration denim uses the same fabric and same details as used on the 0701 but has a skinnier fit that has a low rise, runs slim throughout the legs with a moderate taper, and has a narrow leg opening. We are proud to introduce the "Vintage" Skinny Straight BOM002 denim.

Momotaro x Blue Owl "Vintage" Skinny Straight 15.7oz Raw Selvedge - Model BOM002. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 29-34, 36. Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro x Blue Owl 15.7oz "skinny straight" raw denim, click here.

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.

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".

Custom engraved buttons with Momotaro logos along the button fly.

Hidden selvedge detail along the coin pocket is a nice touch. Notice the subtle hint of pink selvedge showing along the edge just below the copper rivet.

Deer skin patch.
