killmoms asked: I went raw denim shopping in April in Tokyo and came back with some great jeans. Now a coworker of mine is in Tokyo for business and wants to buy a pair or two while she’s there, but she’s a woman and I’m a man. Most of the stores I went to seemed to cater to guys exclusively. Do you have any good suggestions for stores she could visit that would carry women’s cuts? I recommended Pure Blue Japan and 45rpm, and I know Momotaro makes some, but don’t know a good store for her. Help? :D
Hi - I personally did not find any “general” stores that carried raw denim for girls. She can either rakuten online or best to visit the flagship stores for each brand in tokyo. Momotaro, studio artisan ive been and both had stock for ladies. Im sure pure blue does too. Skulls u can buy from their website too.
howardclothingco asked: We need more girls wearing raw denim like you!
We need more rawdenim options for girls too!
bexmak asked: Hi! I'm looking to buy a pair of the Studio D'artisan 703's but was wondering what size to choose... I normally wear size 24 jeans for a slim skinny fit. Did you have to size up 1 or 2 sizes? Thanks in advance!! So glad I found female blog on raw denim :)
Hi~ I’m normally a 24 in most denim brands and SDA size is a bit funny. I think the smallest is 26 which has a similar measuring to my other size 24 denims. I would say get the smallest size possible as they do stretch. The SDA for me fits perfectly around the bum, legs but the waist is just a tiny bit big but overall looks nice. Momotaro is so far the best fit for me.
nakedandnude asked: Hey there! great blog! It's great to see a female perspective on raw denim, a breath of fresh air in the raw denim world aha we need more female denim enthusiasts! Lookin forward to updates!
itslikequack asked: My brother is going to Tokyo this April and I was wondering if you know any stores near Tokyo that would sell Momo or Studio d'Artisan?
Hey, Im going to Tokyo in April too :) There is stores in Tokyo for both brands. Just google them you should be able to find the store address, if not let me know.
heathertabacchi asked: Ive been searching for a pair of raw denim in a size 24 without elastic in it. However, I absolutely cant find them! I saw that you had a pair of Momotaro jeans but I cant locate them online either. Any brands, websites, or ideas would help tremendously.
Sorry for the late reply. I got mine from Japan. I know there are some online stores for momotaro but not in size 24… which country are you based out of? momotaro should have few resellers around the world.
wh0isregina asked: if you don't mind me asking, what size are your jeans? i'm fairly skinny so when i do look for a pair to buy, i'm always worried they'll be too big and won't fit right.
Different brands have different sizing systems so you would need to measure a current pair of jeans and compare to their sizing charts. I find that the elastic denims are smaller than the traditional raw denim which are not stretchy at all. I am also very skinny. So my selection of raw denim is limited. Out of the 3 pairs I have, Momotaro size 24 is the smallest, followed by Studio D’Artisan size 26 (that is the smallest size they produce now but only tiny bit bigger than my momo), Somet is size 26 but significantly bigger on me so Im not wearing that pair as much. In general, if they come in size 24, you are pretty safe.
stanceandtrance asked: Aw k. Thanks anyways. Btw, I really like your Momo's. I had a pair as well. I ended up giving them to my cousin cuz I didn't really like the fit :/. I wanna give them another try though.
The details of Momo is amazing. Every thread, every button it’s just perfect with the exception of the cut around the legs… Bit daggy. I got mine altered and was hard cos the pink thread fades with the jean. Had to re-use the thread somehow. The imperfection of the altered jean is kind of cool cos its uniquely mine.
