The Scissors Slim Tapered - Nina Air 11.5oz Selvedge

SKU 301544607-30

The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. This denim has the look and feel of a 15oz denim but is actually a 11.5oz 4 Way Stretch Selvedge.

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.

For “The Nina” we used denim that was woven using ropedyed indigo yarns and then overdyed the entire garment in black. This method creates a denim that will start off black and will fade to first reveal the indigo, and then fade to white. The depth of color and the high contrast of the fades from this denim will be like no other, making overdyed denim highly sought after by denimheads.

Top notch

These pants are perfect. I'm hesitant to buy before trying on but these are the best fitting, feel and looking pants i own, so i bought more. (Ordered 32, 6'3 180lbs) Im sold on every from this company. Will be constantly checking back for new releases

Soft comfy denim

Great unique colour and soft comfy denim, such a pleasure to wear and they look amazing dressed up or down.

Thank you for the kind words, Troy! We're so glad you're enjoying our jeans.

If you are under 6ft.... stay with solid color

quality and fit of these jeans are amazing. Nina Air fits amazing, i returned because of the fabric - not quite denim - just personal preference) My issue is with the pairs with very intentional fades, which are made with the full length of the pants as the starting point. If you are shorter (i'm 5'9"), the fading comes out in the wrong place. On the Jett, the crease lines behind the knee were mid calf on me and the front fade down to mid shin. So just be aware if that's an issue for you. I'm trying to make any pair of Kato work because they are just that amazing... so onto a third try in solid color that will hopefully work.

Hi Glen, thank you for the feedback, we'll definitely take this into consideration.
Please don't hesitate to contact our customer service if you have any question or concerns regarding any future purchases.
