The Pen Slim - Black Raw 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-210-05-29

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.

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.

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.

Poor customer service

The first pair I ordered were too tight around the waste. I tried them on once and sent them back. Some small scrap of nothing that I hadn’t noticed got on the pants while I was waiting to ship back. I ordered a new pair in a larger size in the meantime. When my return arrived the company told me they would not accept them back and now I’m stuck with a pair of expensive jeans that don’t fit. Will never shop here again.
The jeans themselves are fine but nothing special. They also collect lent nonstop.

Best Jeans ever

I bought my first pair of Kato Jeans a couple months ago and now I have 3 pairs. Love the fit and weight. I get compliments all the time. I have given all old jeans away from Paige, AG, Mavi and even Freenote. I’m all in on Kato.

Thank you for your review, Mark! We're glad you love our jeans and appreciate their fit and weight.
