Ever since I've first heard about Momotaro jeans, I've fallen in love with their long-standing tradition of quality craftsmanship. I'm especially enamoured by their Go To Battle line with their iconic two stripe pattern on the back pocket, owning a pair myself. I decide to visit their store in Tokyo when I was in town.
Apart from a selection of their most popular models, they included a service that allows you to add their signature stamps to your jeans, including the iconic two stripes. You get to choose from a variety of designs for them to hand stamp on your Momotaro denim apparel. The hand-stamping is done at their factory at Okayama, so the process takes about 2 months. Lucky for the denimhead traveller, they'll gladly ship it back to you at your home country when they are done.
Of course, repairs are also available at this store for a fee. However, those of you who bought a collaboration Momotaro jeans would be sad to find that they do not offer repairs to collaboration jeans due to the “difference in quality”. They repaired my Japan Blue X Momotaro twice before telling me that they would not repair it again.
