The Pen Slim - Gray Raw 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-273-05-29

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.

Another Great Pair of Jeans!

Christmas present for my hubby

He requested "a pair jeans that make my butt look good." I saw these and knew they would fit him perfectly and they did. The grey color makes them even more special and gives him a dressy look even though he's comfortable in just jeans.

We strive to provide high-quality jeans that not only fit well but also make you feel confident. We hope he enjoys wearing them and feeling both comfortable and stylish.

Really unique color, fantastic jeans

These jeans fit me really perfectly in size 31, and the grey color is super unique. This is my favorite pair of jeans out of all of the ones that I have from Kato. My only wish is that it would be released in 14oz denim if that is possible. Otherwise these are literally perfect!

Thank you for your kind words, Pat! We're so glad you like the unique gray color and the fit of the jeans and appreciate the feedback.

Look even better on...

I wasn't sure how the gray denim would look in person, but I am super pleased! These have a rugged, yet somewhat expensive appeal to them. I was looking for a comfortable, but well-crafted jean to mix it up with the usual blue...these delivered! I'm starting to build a multiple pair collection of raw, selvage denim. These are truly one of my favorite right now.

Hi Jeremy, thanks for the great review! The Pen Slim - Gray Raw 10.5oz Selvedge are definitely a great option for anyone looking for a comfortable and well-crafted jeans. Thanks for taking the time to write this!
