Heavily Textured, Lightly Worn

In the pursuit of innovation we have created our latest achievement in denim. The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. We wanted to introduce a denim that had the look and feel of a 15oz denim but one felt light and very comfortable when worn. After a very long development process with a highly capable mill in Japan, we were finally able to make this vision a reality.

Instead of using the usual 3 X 1 weave of standard denim, we implemented a 5 x 1 weave. This creates a denim with a higher surface thread count but a lower overall thread count, making it lighter and still durable. The low tension yarns and loose denim weave contribute to the thicker look of the denim while maintaining its light feel. The overall result is a vintage textured denim that looks like heavy weight and feels like a lightweight.

Favorite Denim By Far!!

I have many pairs of Kato denim and chinos in my collection. They are all great. But if I had to choose, these may just be my favorite. The fit has always been spot on for me. But the texture of this denim is unmatched. Love it.

Favorite jeans

I have been on the search for the perfect jeans, and I've found them - these! The material is very unique: durable yet flexible and airy. Likely to purchase more washes at this denim weight. I got them hemmed and they are the perfect fit.

Thank you for your review, Jeremy! We hope you continue enjoying our jeans.

My Favorite Lounge Jeans

To be clear, I wear these for much more than lounging, and the look great in many scenarios. However, I've never owned a more comfortable pair of jeans either. The weave, weight, color and cut are all excellent!

Hi Gavin! Thank you for your review of The Pen Slim - Yoko Air 11.5oz Selvedge. We're glad you love them!

Best Jeans I've Owned

These are the softest and most beautiful jeans I've ever owned. The comfort and stretch is amazing too. My only complaint would have been the lack of inseam choices but they have since added Hemming so that's awesome. Thanks!

Thank you for your review, Cody! We're glad you're enjoying your The Pen Slim - Yoko Air 11.5oz Selvedge jeans. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the lack of inseam choices. We hope you'll continue to shop with us and enjoy our other products.
