These are nice and stretchy. So A+ there. But the are not as skinny as I would expect - looser fit than most “skinny” jeans. I’d give it a 4 if they weren’t so expensive. Durability remains to be seen.
Perfect fit right off the bat! Stretch in all the right places, true rugged man pant but sleek to wear out. These are my favorite!!
I’m a diehard member of the Ksubi cult , but have always wanted a pair of raw denim. The reason I haven’t worn a pair of raws in the past is because most companies are making what are in my opinion very dated cuts for raw denim. APCs don’t fit me right , and most raws do not have near enough of a slim tapered for me. These are incredible. The cut is exactly what I have always wanted from a pair of raw denim. Slim / Skinny with a small leg opening that are modern and comfortable. The material is incredible. It has the perfect amount of stretch , and is extremely comfortable and feels and looks extremely high end.
If you are a fan of skinny denim , and have always wanted a pair of raws but could not find the proper cut then do not hesitate and buy these bad boys. The material , the comfort , the weight are all perfect. I was a bit concerned that the 10.5oz denim would be too thin when comparing them to APCs 14.5oz but I was wrong. They are the perfect weight for California or Texas. I’m really excited to see how these fade. KATO denim is extremely well thought out. The cut is perfect , the material is perfect , it feels like a product that took a lot of thought to make.
I have had these jeans for just over a year. I also own a pair of Pen Slims (owned for 3 months) that have the same issue that I am about to describe. With normal wear, and by normal I mean, sitting around the house, going on casual walks and running basic errands (in a car); this denim has split in the crotch. Stretch denim that fits perfectly and wears out faster than normal 100% cotton denim! I strictly buy made in USA clothing and at first impression KATO was all I could ask for. Don't get stuck owning a ridiculously expensive pair of jeans that you have to constantly repair. I will not be buying more from KATO. Plenty of other affordable Made in USA brands to choose from. I also reached out with my issues and was told I could pay to ship them back and pay for repairs, I guess thats good customer service for spending over $450 on two pairs of jeans!!
After years of working with our mill with non-stretch selvedge, our designer Nick wanted to make the transition to an unattempted 4Way stretch. At first, the mill told him that it was technically impossible, but Nick was unwilling to accept defeat. After many failed attempts, they were able to produce this amazing 4Way stretch fabric that is used in all KATO' jeans.
