Momotaro 0306-12 12oz Tight Tapered Jeans



Compared to heavier Momotaro denim fabrics, the 12oz denim is lighter and more breathable, making it a great choice for everyday wear in milder climates. Despite being lighter, the denim is still sturdy enough to withstand regular use and offers a smooth texture that feels comfortable against the skin. The fabric is crafted using only long-staple Zimbabwean cotton and is woven on old shuttle looms, giving it a traditional and authentic feel.

Momotaro's tight tapered fit is achieved through a combination of a snug fit around the waist, hips, and thighs, with a gradual taper down to a narrower leg opening. This creates a sleek and modern silhouette that is versatile and looks great with a variety of different outfits.

The jeans are adorned with exceptional details, including custom-engraved black iron buttons, a custom-branded natural leather patch, and Momotaro's iconic pink selvedge and inseam, which pay homage to the peach fruit in the legendary Momotaro folktale.

Momotaro is a Japanese denim brand that was founded in Kojima, Okayama in 2005. The brand's philosophy is centered around the concept of "Made by Hand Without Compromise", which reflects their commitment to using traditional techniques and high-quality materials to create their products. They work with skilled craftsmen in Kojima to produce their denim, and place a strong emphasis on attention to detail and quality control.
