    0701s look nice! It's another one to consider along with Eternal 811s and Samurai S710xx. I'm having trouble finding this one on Japanese sites though, is it called something else in Japan?

    Thanks... Not wearing them that much, since I'm committed to a pair of 0701's right now. Will start wearing them next year.

    Hey guys,

    haven't been on mynudies for a very long time.. :(
    Anyways, I am thinking about picking up a pair of Japan Blue's. I am looking for something that is a bit tight, but not too skinny.
    I have a pair of slim jims and eternal 811's, both in size 32.

    Does anyone know what size I should get? I do not mind when the top button can't be closed on the first try.

    What do you guys prefer, the 0700SP or the JB0701.

    I have already asked this question on supertalk, but maybe you guys can give me better sizing advice as more people here have tried on a pair of SJ.

    thanks in advance!

    Hm, I own the SJ which is vanity sized, so you might want to size down. But, best way is to measure your SJ and then compare to the size charts here:
    http://www.nordicdenimhouse.com/index.php?target=pages&page_id=fit_guide
    This fit guide has been 100% true on my 0201 and 0905 SP. The JB are not listed but AFAIK the cuts are the same.
    The 0705SP is the "better" jeans, heavier, slubbier and more exclusive denim, but the JB is also a good pair of jeans. Your decision.

    0700sp are the collabs jeans with momotaro, jb0701 is their own line. as i said before both are same denim and cut but different detail (patch, rivet, inseam thread, buttons, backpocket detail). if you like eyecatchy/hype jeans then you may go for 0700sp because of Momotaro battle stripes on right backpocket.

    my SJ is size 27 (SDO) and i would go TTS if size 28 is available in JB line (afaik 29 is the smallest). for exact sizing, you can ask rob@okiya.eu

    all your Momo jeans look interesting to me, from the DIY black painted Vintage (Battle) Label to this blue tab 0702, you're so creative! and fit is spot on...

    Momotaros are well crafted but they simply don't fade well (IMO). I have not seen a really impressive pair so far (of course that depends on personal preference, just saying. And I am allowed to do so, as I own two pairs.)

    Satchelbmoore's pair might prove you're wrong. Look them up at StyleForum.

    But I know what you mean. Progress is quite slow on them.

    depends on each individual.

    Tuomas's copper label pair from NDH for example, he wore em for whole year and look very faded and beaten up (top one)

    and i still like Rob's 0901, he's worn for 8 months effectively (left one compared to NFxMomotaro which i've worn for a year)
