Momotaro Heavyweight Indigo Border L/S Pocket Tee

Size Guide
Looking for a super serious indigo border tee? This is it!

Each season MOMO introduces us to some of Japan's finest fabrications created with vintage machines and their unique vision for modern-day garments.

To make for the ultimate long-term fades, this vintage machine knitted fabric has been genuine indigo and grand indigo yarn dyed. Like denim, each cotton fibre will gradually reveal a unique shade of indigo with use. The overall fabric has also been skilfully printed with a border pattern to make up for a subtle, contrasting look. The high-quality, pure Zimbabwe cotton used, creates a super smooth feeling when worn.

With an extra heavy ribbed collar and a tasteful, chest pocket these tees are a 'sweatshirt' construction standard and will hold up with use in time.

For a heavy-weight tee with a tonal indigo look, go for this!

  • 100% Top-grade Zimbabwe cotton
  • Japanese 12oz heavyweight knitting fabric (slowly knitted from the vintage machine)
  • Grand Indigo & Genuine Indigo are yarn-dyed
  • Left chest pocket
  • Ribbed collar
  • Once washed (minimal shrinkage)
  • Slim fit
  • Made In Japan

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:
