We are very excited to announce a new shirt in the Kato lineup. Inspired by the classic and rugged vintage workwear shirt, The Brace is built tough but keeps the comfort you expect from Kato. We focused on the workwear details that add durability and functionality to the garment. Triple stitching on the shoulders, back and side seams and the bar tacked reinforced pockets adds unparalleled strength to this shirt. The discreet and easily accessible pen pocket gives The Brace a nice detail.
The Chainstitch runoff found on the side gussets is an interesting detail and a nod to vintage shirts. Early workwear shirts were made with authentic high quality sewing machines that produced this run off effect when finished. These would usually get cut off in production, but sometimes missed. Vintage collectors would find these rarities and they became highly sought after, not only for its rarity, but because it was a true sign a shirt was made using authentic vintage sewing machines. We made Kato work shirts following the footsteps of these vintage treasures and the chainstitch runoff is a testament to its quality and heritage. You can choose to wear them with pride or cut them off with no compromise in durability.
We made The Brace from a light and comfortable 100% cotton, 7oz denim fabric. This denim has a loose weave, woven from thinner yarns, which makes the denim very breathable and perfect for wearing year round. We have made 4 colors available: Indigo, Washed Indigo, Black and Washed Black.
• 65%COTTON 35%TENCEL
• Made in USA
• The model is 6'3" and wearing the size M.

So the Brace shirt is beautiful. I've just received a blue one and this is the black. I've just started buying some nice cool weather pieces and the compliments I've received on my Kato pieces from shirts to pen jeans is really nice
Thank you for your review, Steven! We're glad you're enjoying our new Brace shirts. We hope you continue receiving more compliments.
Love this shirt. It’s perfect for the Saturday lounge day or date night. Extremely well made, and the cut is perfect. I’m 6’1 180lbs and the medium is “I never wanna take it off” perfect. I highly recommend this shirt.
Thank you for your kind review, Vincent! We're so glad you love our shirt - it was designed with comfort and style in mind.
This is a really good looking jacket and since buying it I have ordered a couple of the other colors as well. What I will say is I wear a small. The sleeve length is made for someone who has arms twice the length of their body...
Ok its not that bad but the sleeves are crazy long.
Thanks for the feedback, Christopher! We're sorry to hear that you're not happy with the fit of the Brace Shirt.
