Japan has long been considered the home of the best raw denim on earth, and among the elite jeans designers, one name stands foremost: Momotaro. Named after a famous figure in Japanese folklore and dedicated to bringing the world the highest quality denim available, Momotaro Jeans combine excellent source material with time-tested practices to arrive at near perfect products like the 0702.
They start with 15.7 oz Momotaro deep indigo denim, made from Zimbabwe cotton, processed on vintage shuttle looms, and dyed with the darkest indigo on the market. When combined with the cross-stitched, sulphur dyed weft, the 0702 develops distinctive electric blue fades with use. Cut to fit a modern man, the low rise and slim tapered leg accentuates all the right places while staying comfortable through heavy wear. The legs are joined by black selvedge stitching and finished by Momotaro’s signature pink hemline and selvedge ID, a subtly snappy accent.
Through every step of the process, Momotaro emphasizes superior craftsmanship. Every pair of jeans is hand stitched to maintain high quality control and their passion shines through every expertly sewn seam. With the 0702, they didn’t skimp on a single detail, from the five button fly with originally designed buttons to the deerskin leather waistband patch to the branded copper rivets. For highly durable and fashionable raw denim, you don’t need to catch a flight to Okayama, simply pick up a pair of Momotaro 0702’s.
