  • Brand Info
  • Momotaro's original heavyweight 18oz denim is a super stiff and rigid unsanforized selvedge denim praised for its fading color and character. The denim is made entirely from Zimbabwe cotton, features a smooth yet hairy surface, and is finished with Momotaro's iconic pink selvedge and inseam, both of which serve as an homage to the peach in the original Momotaro folktale.
    • Unsanforized shrink to fit style
    • The new "Natural Tapered" fit is a roomy fit in the top block with a healthy taper from the knee down. The denim has a high rise, roomy thighs, and a strong taper.
    • Rope dyed with pure indigo to achieve very dark indigo color
    • Cotton canvas pocket bags
    • Indigo leather patch with Momotaro branding
    • Pink selvedge and inseam thread, representing the peach from the Momotaro folklore story

    • Chain stitch on hem
    • Filled belt loops
    • 100% Zimbabwe cotton
