The Pen Slim - Indigo Raw 14oz Selvedge


Slim fit, medium rise, 14oz raw Japanese 4-Way Stretch Selvedge, zip fly, premium leather patch, and custom-branded hardware. Made in USA.


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.

Great fit and love the wash

Thank you for your positive feedback! We hope you continue to enjoy your new jeans. -Kato Team

all the great jeans

looking back at all my orders - my advice - leave the website or go broke. these are simply the best designed, best made, best fitting clothes I own. they're addictive. I'll never fully fade any pair of jeans because I just rotate them. I like the pen slim because they're just slightly different from the scissors (which are also great).

We're thrilled to hear that you love them so much and that they're among your favorite pieces in your wardrobe. We completely understand the struggle of trying to resist buying more of our products - they really are addictive! And we're so glad that you appreciate the design, quality, and fit of our jeans!

Until now, I was skeptical of stretch denim. These look great, are super comfotable, and will not be my last pair!

We're thrilled to hear that you've had a great experience with our stretch denim and that you find them both stylish and comfortable. We hope this won't be your last pair as well!

My second pair

I love this brand. This is my second pair. I had recently gained some weight. Couldn’t fit into my size 30. Loved the style and quality so much I decided on a second pair in 31. I’m 50, lean, 150lbs.

Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you love our brand and have decided to purchase a second pair. Your support means a lot to us.
