New Spring/Summer Momotaro Denim!


Momotaro has brought us another great collection this season with three new fabrics! A lightweight 10oz Indigo/Indigo, a vibrant 13oz Cobalt Blue Weft, and a hefty 18oz'er are all amazing additions to Blue Owl. To top it all off, we have two brand new fits from Momotaro: Tight Tapered, and Natural Tapered. The Tight Tapered is a very modern and slim tapered fit, the first from Momotaro. Natural Tapered is a great fit for bigger guys, with a roomy top block and a decent taper through the leg. Check out the details on these amazing jeans below!

Momotaro "Tight Tapered" Cobalt Blue Weft 13oz Raw Selvedge Denim - Model 0305-14. 100% cotton, made in Japan. Sizes 28-34, 36. $295. For more information, click here.

The new season comes with a new patch. Dark brown soft suede, with the traditional Momotaro brand. You can see the colorful weft poking through the warp in this shot.

This shot gives you the best idea of the fabric. It is a dark indigo denim that gives hits of its bright weft through the surface of the fabric. The hue that it creates is extremely unique.

Here you can see the beautiful cobalt blue of the weft. Against the dark indigo of the warp, the color really pops.

The 10oz fabric is very lightweight, perfect for summer.

All of the new denim come with custom branded nickel buttons.

The Indigo/Indigo has a clean white selvedge, but retains the pink inseam that Momotaro is known for.

The dark suede patch makes for a very clean look on this heavy denim.

As Momotaro's first heavyweight, we are very impressed with the quality and feel of the fabric. Using 100% American cotton, the fabric has a nice sturdy feel that is slightly irregular but still very smooth.

Custom branded copper rivets and the coin pocket selvedge that peaks out are only a few of the Momotaro details we love.

Pink selvedge and pink inseam in homage to the peach from the Momotaro folklore story. You can see the thickness of this denim on the selvedge as it stands away from the weft.
