The Blade - Indigo Rod Air 11.5oz Selvedge

SKU 501244607-S

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. The Blade Jacket has undergone a wash to add to the vintage look and broken in feel.

Great Fit and Comfort

Super comfortable jacket. I'm 5'10" & 155lbs, the S fits me very well. The slight stretch in the material makes it easy to move around and provides great flexibility for a denim jacket. Further, the denim is super soft right out of the package and feels like I've worn it for years. Definitely recommend if you're willing to spend the extra on something as premium as this piece. I have a corduroy jacket from Kato as well, both are amazing quality. Thanks for delivering!

Thank you for your review, Michael! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying the jacket.

Incredible Jacket

This is an incredibly well-made and comfortable jacket. I now own two of the Indigo Rod Air versions simply because I never want to be without one. One stays in my car for anytime use on the road and the other at home. If you’ve never tried the Selvedge Air fabric you’re in for a treat. I highly recommend a pair of Kato jeans in this same fabric.

Thank you Robert for your review!

Glad to see you like our Blade Jacket in ROD Air.
