The Needle Skinny - Indigo Black Raw 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 3008-276-05-30

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.

The Needle skinny fits smaller than our the Pen slim fit.

Worth the $

My first pair of indigo needle and expectations were exceeded. They're not obnoxiously skinny and the fabric feels amazing. I trusted the reviews on something I would typically never buy without trying on and no regrets. Hopefully, some more color options on the way and I'll be buying another pair soon!

1st pair of black jeans from HK

I’ve been rockin' a pair of indigo selvedge needle-fit jeans by HK for about a year, and I decided to up my wardrobe with a black pair. I love the needle fit and I know I’m not alone in wishing that HK would make more options available for us slender guys in that skinny fit.

My fave pair of jeans ever. These are soft, slim, and the fabric is luxurious. These are the peak of understated elegance--exactly what one would expect from Hiroshi Kato. The stitching is remarkably cautious and elegant. These jeans are of the highest quality without being flashy. Hiroshi Kato is the peak of good taste and timeless style. I plan to order another pair soon.

Amazing jeans

My 2nd pair of Kato selvedged jeans. Love these jeans, a unique color blend of black and indigo makes it really versatile with different colored tops. The stretch is perfect and the sturdiness leaves me confident these jeans will last for many years. Color contrast seam stitching is also a great touch! Highly recommend!

Thanks for the review, Danny! We're so happy you like the jeans. They're definitely unique and versatile - perfect for any outfit.
