[Quote] You are right, Japan Blue Group owns both brands and it's pretty much as you said, Japan Blue being a brand targeted to mass markets with lower price point. Momotaro Jeans again is higher end pure vintage denim brand. The brands' positioning is still a work in progress I might say. Most of the people I have talked about this have also expressed their confusion. I mentioned this to Momotaro Jeans as well but as said, they are different brands and with Japan Blue being still new to the markets, still looking for its place. I am sure the marketing will further differentiate the brands in the future. The recent Momotaro Jeans by Japan Blue line does not really help with the confusion though. The line-up features Momotaro Jeans style, labels and approach mixed with Japan Blue. It is a collaboration as Momotaro Jeans calls it, Japan Blue products marketed with Momotaro Jeans' name. Collaborations are cool but these types of collabs can really confuse the customers. blushing

[Quote] I confirmed with the guys from N&F and the collaboration will only be released in Skinny Guy fit. There have been several N&F collaborations in other cuts so they want to give some shine to the Skinny Guy. Also there has been plenty of requests for Momotaro Jeans in "skinny cut". Basically the denim and hardware come from Momotaro Jeans and the jeans are also produced in Okayama. I added few more photos and details on the blog regarding the release.

The jeans will have the Skinny Guy fit. I can check with the guys from N&F if there are plans for any in other cuts. But based on the info I've got, at this point the collaboration only features the Skinny Guy fit.
