I've had my Momotaro vintage label for about a year and a half, 2 washes... Pocket bags are falling apart, threading throughout the denim is coming loose had to re stitch both back pockets on, pink thread on inside of leg is coming out... super disappointed for only being 1 1/2 years old. I hate to say I'll most likely stay away from momo next time =/

You're not washing your denim enough. For reals.

Denim is so prone to breaks when not cleaned.

What he said - wash your jeans. Not any fault of the denim - washes will strengthen the denim. Research it a little and you'll see..

Momotaro does use cotton threads for stitching though, so not as strong other brands that use poly-cotton.

The construction on Momo's is very good though... Never had any issues with the cotton threads.

I have a pair of Momo 702BRs that I want to shrink (can't return them at this point; they've been chain-stitched/hemmed).  They are brand new, never been washed/rinsed or worn.  I know they're sanforized so the shrinkage might be minimal.

 

What's the best way to shrink them as much as possible without compromising the indigo/color?

Good answer! But Dbear did reply...

I'll try to take some pics tomorrow. I was too disappointed and frustrated today to take any.

That's discouraging news. I'll have to mull over what my plan of action is. Real 1st world problem.

Here's a fit pic (sort of) of the 702BR that I'd like to try to shrink as much as possible.  As you can see, I should have sized down one.

 

 

Since I can't return/exchange them, I am wanting to shrink them as much as possible, even at the cost of compromising the indigo/color.  What is the best approach to achieve as much shrinkage with as little color loss as possible?  TIA.

On a more positive note, here are my standard 702s at about five months of effective wear.

Holy crap, you're a fast fader.

I think the BR702s look fine. Nothing wrong with not cramming your junk in a pair.
