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 Momotaro 0605 or "Natural Tapered" fit is one of our favorite and best-selling jeans of all time. An extremely flattering tapered fit, it's the sort of cut that looks immediately good on just about everyone who puts a pair on - with a very natural taper, that follows the wearer's leg shape organically.
They feature a medium-high rise that sits comfortably on the waist, with decently roomy thighs and a noticeable taper down to a more narrow leg opening. These will still comfortably fit over most boots, but the operative word here is most, because certain engineers/ropers/cowboy boots will be too wide to fit under the leg.
They're made from Momotaro's 12oz custom selvedge denim, developed and produced in-house at Collect Mills. Lighter-weight and immediately softer than most other Momotaro denims, this has all the benefits of their other incredible fabrics with a fraction of the break in. Like other Momotaro denims, this low-tension weave denim is spun from long staple Zimbabwean cotton that is both stronger and more softer than comparably heavy fabrics made from shorter staple cotton. The uneven weave lends itself to irregularities and variation throughout the fabric, with a slubby texture that only gets more interesting with wear as the indigo dye fades down.
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.
