Momotaro Denim Restocks: 0701 Vintage Label, 0705sp Going to Batllte, and 0201 Vintage Label,


In our recent shipment from Rampuya, we received restocks of 3 denim series from the Momotaro line. Back in stock in all sizes 28-36 are the 0701 "Tight Straight" Vintage Label denim, 0705sp "Tight Straight" Going to Battle denim, and 0201 "Slim Straight" Vintage Label denim.

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" 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.

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.

Momotaro vintage label 15.7oz "slim straight" raw selvedge denim - model 0201. 100% Zimbabwe cotton. Sizes 28-34, 36 (38, 40, 42 via special order). Made in Japan. $295. For more information on the Momotaro vintage label "slim straight" raw denim, click here.

Momotaro's "slim straight" denim fit is slim in the top block, has a low rise, and visually appears as a straight leg but does have a minimal taper from mid-thigh to the leg opening. This fit has a touch more room in the thigh and leg compared to the "tight straight" fit.

The fabric used on all 3 denims 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. Here are some other features used in all 3 denims:

Custom engravedg 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".

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.
