The Momotaro 0405-B 15.7 oz. Black x Black 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 signature 15.7 oz. Vintage Label Selvedge Denim is a recipe of hand cultivated, long-staple 100% Organic Zimbabwe Cotton and vintage shuttle looming at moderate tensions. The result is a hallmark proprietary denim that's amazingly durable and rigid, which will evolve with a soft hand, structured form, and deep color saturation that will fade with a layered character through years of heavy wear. With a black sulfur dyed warp and weft over natural core yarns, this denim will develop into shades of grey with repeated wears and washes. This jean comes with the Momotaro standard peach selvedge line 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 black steel button fly, embossed copper riveting, hidden back rivets, bartack reinforcements throughout, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem. Representing one of the most esteemed Japanese jean producers, 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.
