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.
