The Scissors Slim tapered- Indigo Raw 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 3015-198-05-28

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.

Awesome pair of jeans with a minor flaw

Let me get the minor flaw out of the way.
Not going to lie, this was my first pair of jeans that cost over $100 and with this price tag, I feel like it should be flawless but the leather patch above the rear pocket was only sewn half way. If they're going to charge that much for a nice pair of Selvedge, the QC needs to be better. The overall jeans though, I have athletic legs and been struggling to find the right pair of selvedge jeans that are actually comfortable. THIS IS IT. Fit was true to size with perfect amount of stretch. I would definitely buy another pair.

Best jeans that I found for Fit, Quality, and Color.

I've been searching for the right pair of jeans that represent the perfect fit for me and color. I like them better the Raleigh Denim and all that other high quality denim companies that I have purchased, owned, and tried. Hiroshi nailed the fit, color, and fit. I have 4 pairs of these Scissors Slim Tapered- Indigo Raw 10.5oz Selvedge. On top of it all, Hiroshi Kato let's you select to get them hemmed which is a great service and they are fast and the jeans hemmed perfectly to pair with my Red Wing Heritage Boots. I've gone through a few tailors in town and none of them could get it right. Best jeans I've owned. Thank you Hiroshi. Well done.

Thank you for your great review, Justin! We're glad to hear that you're happy with our jeans and appreciate the fit, color, and service you received from our team. We hope you'll continue to enjoy wearing them for years to come.

Nice jeans, slim indeed.

Materials and construction are nice. These do indeed have a slim fit. They were just too tight in the seat and thigh for me, and I had to return them. I'm 6'0" and 175 lb and wear 32x32 as my go-to size. I have a rather slim build naturally, but I do squat and lift some weights. If you're like me these likely won't fit you, and you need an athletic fit. I really wish Hiroshi Kato would make an athletic fit tapered jean. Until they do, I have to search elsewhere.

Thank you for the review, Jordan! Our designer recommends a tight fit for raw jeans as they will gradually conform to your body shape. We hope you can give us another try in the future.

Finally a great fitting pair of jeans

After trying other direct to consumer brands and even having a pair of jeans custom made (mistake), I was super happy with my Hiroshi Kato purchase. As soon as I put these on they felt instantly comfortable - which is surprising for new selvage denim, but the small amount of stretch makes a huge difference. I like the fit of the scissors and have ordered a few different washes as these are my go-to work/out to dinner jeans. I wanted to like the pen slim cut but found the rise/crotch to be too high/tight so stuck with the scissors. The jeans did stretch out/loose up a little after wearing a few times - nothing crazy, but if you're in-between sizes like me, would suggest sizing down in the waist.

Thank you for your review, William! We're thrilled to hear that you're enjoying our The Scissors Slim Tapered fit. We appreciate your continued support.
