HIROSHI KATO

The Pen Slim - Gray Raw 10.5oz Selvedge

$219.00

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.

• Slim fit

• Gray raw 10.5oz

• 96% COTTON/4% POLYURETHANE

• Made in USA

• 4-Way stretch selvedge denim

• The model in the first picture is 6' and wearing a size 32.

Crotch seam fail and for skinny leg boys

I am not rocking huge quads here and the waist is definitely right but the thighs and business parts space is tight. I’m not sure what eunuch with skinny legs model these are made for but damn. The seam at the lower crotch started to fail in a week … give the boys some space !! I wanted to love these. The stretch and style are superb. I don’t want baggy jeans but man who fits in these?

Hi Erik

We are sorry that the pair did not you well and resulted the failure in the crotch area. I do not see any orders under your email on our webstore but did you purchase the pair at a retailer? If so, I'd like you to contact the retailer first. Please let us know if they do not respond you.

Thank you.

These are my new favorite jeans. Love them!
It killed me when J Brand jeans went out of business. I have been looking for nearly 2 years for a replacement of my then favorite jeans. I now have found Kato Jeans.
Let’s start with the material. Light enough (10.5 oz) to be cool on warm days but heavy enough to be warm on cool days. The denim is also durable but has a nice “new sheen” to it. They look stylish and relaxed at the same time. Easy to dress up or down with corresponding shoes/shirt. The fit is also great. I have a 29 inch waist but large thighs. These jeans are cut slim but both waist and thighs fit comfortably. Usually it’s one or the other. The jeans are 96% cotton and 4% polyurethane. Just enough stretch to give when moving/bending or walking but by no means do they fit tightly or look like nylon/spandex. The components are also well thought out and engineered. The pockets are the right size and allow my hands in fully to the very bottom. I have a pair of Ermenegildo Zegna jeans that have pockets so tight I cannot get more than two fingers into them at a time. Seriously, they seem just to be decoration. The zipper is also a treat: nice heavy duty, brass/metal. So much better than plastic zippers with teeth that clinch and handles that quickly break off. Or, button flies that have holes for the rivets that quickly stretch and then don’t hold the fly shut. I am 5’11” and the 33.5 inch inseam is the right amount of length. Just enough extra material from the calf to ankle so the jeans bunch just a bit on top of my shoes. If I wore boots I could probably roll them at the bottom of the legs. My only complaint is the large width of the belt loops: 2.5 inches. Fortunately I do not wear a belt with them because they fit so perfectly. But if you love your belts and they are not big and chunky they may look out of place. Would I buy another pair of Kato Jeans? Absolutely! Look forward to it!

Hi Joseph, thank you so much for such a great review. We hope you continue enjoying our Ren Gray Raw, and thank you for the feedback regarding the belt loops, we'll pass it along to our designer.

Great pants

This is the first I've purchased a pair of jeans from Kato and the quality of the jeans are impressive and they fit me well. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade their jeans game.

Thank you Jason for your review!
