The are now at approximately 9 months of wear with two cold soaks. After the second soak, I rode around on my bike while they were wet to dry them and allow them to form to my body. I have yet to take post soak measurements, but I intend to. I had our denim repair specialists repair the following: usual crotch reinforcement, knee, small hole in back wallet pocket. You can see my motorcycle key breaking through in the coin pocket. I have officially retired these to the Context wall and have been wearing my Momotaro + Context Grand Indigo Selvage 0701MCXX exclusively for just over a month now. I am continually impressed with the quality of the fade that occurs in Momotaro fabric. I’ll have to compile a list of substances I’ve spilled on my 0701′s. You’ll have to stick to the list if you want to achieve the same fade qualities. Here is a short list: beer, whiskey, sawdust, coffee, blood, and greenland wax.
