The Pen Slim - Rain 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-198-02-29

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.

I'd sleep in the rain if I had to.

Wearing them right now. Deep dark Indigo fading nicely. These are the jeans that go with every piece of clothing. The color is beyond perfect. Honeycomb and whiskers galore
I'm 6 foot, 180 lbs and pen slim 33 are what I buy. They're slightly tight and allows me to carry my pistol everyday inside the waistband. Super happy with Kato.

Be careful on fit! Varies from wash and color!

I was gifted a pair of these, sz 31 raw indigo/black and absolutely love them! I know raw does shrink a bit after first soak/wash, and they fit perfectly after that. I picked up 3 pairs for myself, Keith, Rain and Black raw. The Keith borders on not even being slim in the slightest, a little less stretch (expected as its 14oz vs 10.5) and the rain feels soft but is slightly smaller fit than the Keith and a weird boxy like fit between the raw and Keith wash. They are all the same size! I love the black and indigo raw ones, but it's hard taking a chance online, having them hemmed, to find the inconsistencies in fit by wash and cant return. Pretty bummed, but my suggestion is to try each wash first before hemming. I'll still *maybe* give Kato another try because they are a great material and the raw is prefect.Just a bit sour after over $600 and alterations and cant wear them. I've spent SO much money on jeans and brand and fits, and the pen raw is up there for me. For reference, 5'6", 155 lbs never skip a workout, especially legs, and the scissors are tight on calves, pens (non raw) are apparently not narrow enough at the bottom and the needle wouldn't even fit over my arse.

Hi there! We wanted to first apologize that you weren't satisfied with our products. Our team will contact you directly to resolve this issue. Thank you!
