The Hammer Straight- Indigo One Wash 10.5oz Selvedge


Medium-rise straight cut and a slight taper
through the leg. One washed Indigo Japanese 10.5oz 4-Way Stretch Selvedge, zip fly, premium leather patch, and custom-branded hardware. Made in USA.


Our premium denim is inspired by the classic vintage blue jean. Our Premium Japanese 4-Way Stretch Selvedge denim story starts in Japan where our fabric is developed at one of the oldest denim mills. We blend a unique 4 way stretch material with selvedge denim to create a specific amount of stretch and comfort you wouldn’t typically get with selvedge denim. This 360 degree of stretch gives the wearer comfort from every angle no matter what they are doing.

Our 4-Way Stretch selvedge fabric is weaved using vintage shuttle looms. Rolls of denim fabric are then brought into our workshop in Los Angeles where each pair goes through a 60 to 90 day process of cut, sew, washing and testing. With 4 fits available in multiple weights (see fit guide) and washes, the style options are endless.

• 96% Cotton 4% Polyurethane

10.5 Ounce; Hammer; Review

These jeans are definitely worth a true 5-star review. I purchased a waist 30, Indigo, 10.5 ounce Hammer jeans and the fit is fantastic. If you are skinny and don't want to look too skinny then these jeans have to be the best on the market. I like them better than my Diesel's and Diesel jeans are great. The fit on the leg is wide enough to not make it look baggy and they are a true straight cut. Plus, it is a "high" crotch jean, and they don't sag in the front, and they don't sag in the butt area.
I hate jeans that look sloppy. I am definitely buying many more pairs. We just need more colors in them. Hint, hint. Keep up the great work Team Kato!

Thank you for your positive review and for choosing our Hammer Straight Indigo One Wash jeans. We are delighted to hear that you are satisfied with the fit and quality of our product. We appreciate your feedback and will definitely consider your suggestion for more color options. Keep an eye out for future releases!

Trying a New Finish

All of the jeans I have purchased from Kato have been in the raw state, or with an over-dye. These are the first jeans that have been processed with a wash. I love the hand feel and the relaxed fitting. Looking forward to other finishes.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Hammer Straight Indigo One Wash jeans. We're so glad to hear that you're enjoying the new finish and the relaxed fit.
