The Pen Slim - Chuck 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 301054501-29

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.

We make this ivory colored denim by taking our beige denim and washing it down to soften and lighten the fabric. This denim is a great replacement for a pair of chinos. Available in The Pen Slim and The Hammer Straight.


• Made in USA

• 4-Way stretch selvedge denim

• The model in a first picture is 6' and wearing the size 32.



Crafted with intention, our denim is made using premium Japanese 4-way stretch selvedge in our Los Angeles workshop. Our denim goes through a time consuming 50 day process from start to finish to ensure the highest of quality. Built using only the best available hardware with traditional machines and techniques, you are getting a true vintage inspired piece with a modern upgrade of comfort.

my favorite new jeans

This is my second pair after searching high and low for the right combination of fit and feel. I will certainly be adding more. My first pair was unwashed and this second pair, washed. The unwashed has softened up nicely and really not sure which I like better. I am 6'3" and 215 lbs - the 34" waist fit me perfect. Depending on the mfgr, I am a 33/34.

We are thrilled to hear that you have found your new favorite pair of jeans after searching for the perfect fit and feel. It's great to know that both the unwashed and washed options have suited you well!

Tested and True

This is my second 10.5 oz Pen Slim. Had the dusty black "Cole" color and picked up the "Chuck" to have something that looks lighter to wear in the summer months. The Chuck color is even better in person, definitely not white but not quite as tan/khaki in the picture. Color works with everything and easy to dress up or dress down. Love the 10.5 oz weight, moves with you. I would buy a third color in this cut and weight.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our product, The Pen Slim - Chuck 10.5oz Selvedge. We appreciate your feedback on the Chuck color and how it looks even better in person. It's great to know that the 10.5 oz weight works well for you and can easily be dressed up or down. We will definitely take note of your suggestion for a potential third color in this cut and weight. Thanks again for your support and for sharing your experience with us.

Great summer weight Selvedge denim

These natural denim 10 ouncers are great for Spring and even summer. Fit is great as always and the hemming service is a great addition.

Thank you so much for your review!

Another banger of a color

Just when I thought my closet was complete Kato releases a color that I had to add. Comfort and fit is perfect and now offering hemming is a cherry on top

Hey Luis, thanks for the review! We're glad you're enjoying our new Chuck wash in the Pen slim.
