The Pen Slim - Gray Raw 10.5oz Selvedge


Slim fit, medium rise, 10.5oz gray 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.

Perfect fit, lightweight enough for summer

I've normally been wearing 14oz+ denim, but wanted to try something lighter for the summer. The 10.5oz is a lot more comfortable in the heat, and the slight stretch makes them particularly comfortable.

Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that our 10.5oz Selvedge denim was the perfect fit for you and provided much needed relief in the hot summer months. - Kato Team

Eye-catching Quality

These are by far one of my most complimented pairs of jeans. The fit is consistent with my other Katos, and the fade has a premium, textured look. They go great with a black pair of Chelsea boots and a leather jacket.

Zipper handle came undone

Brand new Jeans, worn 5/6 times and the zipper handle came apart - not expected from a brand new pair. Been wearing the previous two pair of Jeans from Kato - no issues.
The jacket from Kato always attracts compliments. I am heartbroken to see my favorite brand crumple.
Sent email to customer service - lets see what happens.

Can't go wrong with these

Same great quality on a pair with a perfect color. Can't go wrong with these jeans for fit or quality.

Another Great Pair of Jeans!

I purchased my first pair (Pen Slim - Jett 14oz) and immediately knew I had would be making another purchase. I love the look of this pair of jeans. Its the perfect shade for casual everyday use and for an evening out. The feel is great - comfortable and worn-in from the start. Would highly recommend!
