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.

Hiroshi Kato gear is, hands down, the best gear in my closet. I've got more than a few of the who's who in the world of quality, japanese-made selvedge. I love them all, but this jean(and all other Hiroshi Kato gear) has a special place in my heart because it's made here in SoCal, comfortable like no other, and is unmatched in style/design. Definitely worth it!!
Coming out of heavy non-stretch denim it's taken time to get used to these being so stretchy, but I'm slowly getting there. They are comfortable for sure. I do wish the black were offered in something heavier in the hammer because they are a bit thin, especially when youre used to 21oz and 23 oz...they feel like tissue paper. If they were offered in a heavier weight I'd definitely be a life customer.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our 'The Hammer Straight- Night 10.5oz Selvedge'. We're glad to hear that you find them comfortable and that you're slowly getting used to the stretchiness.
We appreciate your feedback about the thickness of the fabric and we'll definitely take it into consideration for future product development. We're always looking for ways to improve and meet our customers' needs.
First order and I really like them. Hoping the denim keeps its shape over multiple wearings (rather than stretching out in the seat like a lot of denim/poly blend jeans). Glad I found these!
Thank you for your review, Kelly! We're glad you like the fit and quality of the jeans. We hope you'll enjoy them for many wears. To maintain their shape we recommend following the care instructions.
This is my 5th pair of Kato jeans and they haven't disappointed me thus far, amazing quality and great fit.
Thank you for your review, Christian! We're glad to hear that you're pleased with the quality and fit of our jeans, we hope to continue meeting your expectations.
Love these jeans. I have yet to be disappointed and don’t expect to be.
Thanks for the great review, Ross! We're glad to hear that you're happy with the fit and appearance of the jeans. We hope you'll continue to enjoy them.
