About Me

All of our styles are available for purchase on our website,

When modern Japanese meets the style of ancient warriors, get ready for the unexpected. Prepare for fashion unlike anything before. Expect pants, shirts and shoes once worn by samurai that rival any of the latest designs on the streets today. Brace yourself for Shigoto Fashion, the latest in Japanese apparel to hit Stateside.

Shigoto Fashion was created in Tokyo in April 2008 by Jasper Momma, former General Manager of Heineken Japan, and Mibu Minami, a renowned radio personality. Like a reflection of the city it was born in, this fashion enterprise emerged at the intersection of Japan’s past and the future. It was the dream of Momma and Minami to fill the void for such a unique concept in apparel. Blending the fashions of modern day Japanese construction workers and the innovation that drives Tokyo to be the most cutting-edge city in the world as inspiration, Shigoto Fashion created a wardrobe wildly different than anything you've ever seen before.

How can Japan's construction workers serve as inspiration for couture? Their clothing is derived from the style and shape of clothing of ancient samurai warriors whose apparel allowed them to be fast and fierce. Just like today, the clothes of the warriors were a key part to their success that allowed them to survive their environment and defeat their enemies with the utmost confidence. All Shigoto apparel is hand-woven and created with authentic materials. True to form to the traditional styles, all fashions are the highest quality with superior design and ultimate comfort. In a world of outsourcing, Shigoto is committed to staying true to Japan, even if this means higher costs. All pieces are crafted by Japanese designers and manufactured in Japan in order to provide the most authentic designs and to attract the most loyal customer base.

The company hopes to succeed in conceptualizing a new phenomenon: engaging people into history through fashion. Momma and Minami hope to bring Japan's history, as well as its unique, trend-worthy apparel to the rest of the world. Who could have predicted that ancient samurais would be bringing the most cutting-edge fashions to the international marketplace? Shigoto Fashion will continue to strive to stay true to this tradition, but always look boldly into the future.

From this site we are looking to network with fashion industry insiders- Magazines, Stylists, Photographers, Etc. Do collaborations for editorials and photo-shoots.
