Momotaro x Naked & Famous denim
Here is a collab I am pretty excited to introduce to you. Let us present this collaborative pair of jeans between two great denim brands: – Momotaro (which name comes from a folk Japanese hero), one of the most greatest jeaners of the world coming from Okayama, Mecca of denim – And Naked & Famous who needs no introduction here (but still few words :x), a Canadian brand also making great jeans, with innovative cuts and a strong image (packaging recalls 50’s pop art). Then, Japan and Canada team up here for an exclusive pair of jeans. First released for autumn-winter 2010, 80’s Purple has just received a few restock, hence this article.
Such trousers have to be perfect, and they are with a rope dyed 14.5oz indigo selvedge denim construction all made from an authentic, vintage American Machine in Okayama, Japan (including the famous Union Special 43200G bulldog chain-stitching machine). Copper buttons and rivets are marked by Momotaro and the patch features a special double logo representing the collab. Icing on the cake is actually printed on the pockets with the Rising sun an the Leaf on each.
The cut, actually based the “skinnyguy” from N&F has slim/skinny legs with a regular rise. Denim used on the collab is a new Sanforized denim specifically made for it, then the jeans won’t shrink much when/if washed. I have heard that this fabric has excellent fading properties… it must worth the try!
