Coming Soon! Momotaro x Blue Owl 13oz Silk Blend "Tapered" Raw Selvedge - BOM004


We have yet another project in the works - Momotaro x Blue Owl BOM004. Our newest Momotaro collab has just been finalized and is scheduled to be released before the holidays. This denim will feature a silk blend fabric which uses 40% silk and 60% Zimbabwe cotton and it introduces a new fit never made by Momotaro....."tapered!" Here are a few more details.

Momotaro x Blue Owl 13oz Silk Blend "Tapered" Raw Selvedge - BOM004. 40% silk, 60% cotton. Made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36. Price estimated at $325. Release approximately mid-December.

The fabric is a 13oz sanforized selvedge made with a blend of silk for the weft yarns and Zimbabwe cotton on the warp. The Zimbabwe cotton is rope dyed in pure indigo to a super dark color, but the actual color has a blue gray tone as the silk can be seen along the surface. The exterior surface has slubby texture and a soft feel with a touch of crispness. The interior is incredibly soft, like wearing silk bed sheets wrapped around your legs. Bottom line, this denim is pure luxury, plus it will fade well as the dark indigo will give a nice contrast after some wear. Light blue gray thread was used throughout the denim, including the exposed inseam, which has a slight contrast against the pure indigo dyed fabric. The fit is the same "tapered fit" that is used Japan Blue tapered denims. The fit has a medium to low rise, a bit of room in the thigh, and tapers from upper to a narrow leg opening.

Other features include chambray pocket bags and chambray lining around the top block and hidden back pocket rivets.

Hardware is the same as used on the Momotaro Copper label. The rivets are copper with Momotaro peach emblem backs, button fly is bronze with Momotaro engraved logos.
