The Pen Slim - Indigo Raw 14oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-224-05-29

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.

It took some trial and error, but I’ve found the denim I plan to wear until I’m too old to pull it off. I’m a 49 yr. old contractor. 6’ 190 lbs (long and lean). I need denim I can wear at job sites, as well as meetings with my clients. I don’t swing hammers, but I’m hauling materials and around dust daily. These aren’t intended to be “work” jeans I doubt, but they are as tough, as they are stylish.

(1st pair) I started with 31W 10oz Pen Slim. After a few nights of wearing them at home, I accepted they were too small, and I’d be donating them. (2) 32W Pen Indigo Raw 10.5 oz. These are awesome! Love most everything about them. The calves are snug and warm when it’s humid outside. (3) 32W Pen Indigo Raw 14 oz. These fit even better. Perfect for me. This weight feels more roomy. (4) I submitted a request for notice when the Pen Brown were in stock. I got the email, scared my dog, and ordered immediately. They came a few days ago. I’m wearing them now at home. (5) Not yet, but a Mammoth indigo raw is inevitable.

I want to own and consume less (not environment driven). I needed to simplify my wardrobe with high quality, long lasting pieces. Buying 2 pair of $250 jeans from a retailer every year, for 20 years, is bananas. I plan to wear these Kato’s hundreds of times.

If you’re on the fence, do it. Wear them for 50 hours, then you’ll start telling your people about them.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a detailed and thoughtful review. We take pride in creating high-quality, durable pieces that can withstand any job site or meeting. We appreciate your loyalty and are happy to hear that you plan on wearing these jeans for years to come. Thank you for choosing Kato and we hope you continue to enjoy your new pair.
