As part of Collect Mills, Momotaro have the freedom and equipment to design and develop their own custom fabrics in-house, allowing them to produce highly unique and technically advanced fabrics at a fraction of the cost. This freedom defines much of Momotaro's brand, and everything they produce is a wonderful blend of incredible textiles and masterful craftsmanship.

The 0405 "High Tapered" fit little brother jean of the natural taper, fitting a touch slimmer in just about every aspect - with a slightly less high rise, more snug thigh, and an aggressive taper down to a fitted leg opening. Falling more readily into the category of "skinny jean", the High Tapered runs on the smaller side, and we generally suggest folks go up a size for the best fit.

Using 100% American cotton instead of the usual long-staple Zimbabwean cotton, Momotaro's texture denim is woven on very specific vintage looms. The various quirks of age developed by these antique machines weave the fabric into a highly varied and textured finished product, with a slubby face and cotton neps throughout.

These run slightly small, and folks who land between sizes should choose the larger size. Rinsed, so minimal shrinkage expected, but you should still wash cold and hang dry.
