Happy 2015!


A Stonemason jean

This weekend I received a set of pictures from Lee Yu after my call for worn Momotaro jeans!

Well, indeed, this is a nicely worn Momotaro, and as the model suggests, I think Lee Yu took this literally and really went to battle with it…



Displayed here is a GTB labelled Momotaro jean, model 1005SP (middle straight). Worn for only 10 months, 2 washes and 2 repair jobs. Lee Yu clearly uses his jeans where it is intended for : hard labor!

Thanks for contributing Lee Yu, and keep us updated!


If you also have a nicely worn or battered Momotaro jean and you want to have it posted on our blog, simply sent a set of images and some text with it to press@japanblue.co.jp.
