Momotaro has been one of the more prolific brands releasing a pretty wide variety of denim as well as collaborations with other brands and stores. This time around they’ve released a jean that features one of their more unique looking fabrics, the Momotaro Deep Indigo Brown Weft 0702BR.
While it’s not unusual to see fabrics with brown and other colored wefts, the combination of the darker brown weft and the super dark indigo warp gives the jean a rusty red hue. The denim fabric is sanforized, weighs in at 15 oz and is made from 100% Zimbabwe cotton which has a smooth soft hand that will break in well over time.
The mid-weight will feel just right as many of us go into the cooler season. The jean features the usual Momotaro details: pink inseam thread and selvedge ID which represents the peach in the “Momotaro” folktale, hidden selvedge on the coin pocket, hidden back pocket rivets, deer skin leather patch, and canvas pocket bags.
At this point, it’s no question that Momotaro makes solid jeans made from quality fabrics with careful construction so these will be a great alternative to the more traditional looking jeans and will fit right in with darker earthy tones that many FW’13 collections are featuring. As usual, we look forward to seeing pictures as the 0702BR gets worn in and fades over time.
