The Momotaro 0405-36 13 oz. Ultimate Pima Cotton in the High Tapered is a mid-high rise with a roomy seat and thigh that dramatically tapers through the leg to a very narrow hem to yield a modern tapered cut for a wide variety of body types. The limited seasonal edition 13 oz. Ultimate Pima is a unique iteration that uses a 100% Organic US Grown Cotton from the prized Sea Island breed that provides a silky fiber that is light, flexible, and durable. This rare long-staple cotton fiber is spun into consistent yarns that are indigo rope dyed and vintage shuttle loomed in Japan for a bright blue cast denim with a luxurious and pliable hand that will evolve to a comfortable warm weather staple with a structured drape and fade with high contrast character through years of heavy wear. With an indigo dyed warp and natural weft over natural core yarns, this denim will develop blue to vintage white fading patterns with repeated wears and washes. This jean comes with the Momotaro standard peach inseam stitch to represent the folkloric story that symbolizes Japan’s rejuvenation of selvedge denim production in their home of Kojima, Okayama and the brand’s reputation of crafting some of the best jeans in the world by always looking to progress within traditional techniques. Finished with premium components and production standards, these jeans boast an embossed natural vegetable tanned leather patch, heavy duty canvas pocket bags with a woven jacquard logo pattern, a zinc steel button fly, embossed copper riveting, hidden back rivets, bartack reinforcement throughout, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem. Representing one of the most esteemed Japanese jeans, this hardwearing Momotaro combines celebrated propriety selvedge denim, precise craftsmanship, and a refined modern cut to yield a mainstay in any wardrobe that is special when new and only gets better as it becomes one's own.
