The Pen Slim - Old Blue Raw 14oz Selvedge

SKU 301053905-29

 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.

Kato’s respect for denim reaches back decades. Our years of experience and research is how we can create a timeless pair of jeans.

This season we use our breakthrough 4 Way Stretch Selvedge as the base for several new fabrics that give a nod to the freewheeling vibe of the 70’s.

• Slim fit


• Made in USA

• 4-Way stretch selvedge denim

• Model is 6'1" and wearing a size 32.



Crafted with intention, our denim is made using premium Japanese 4-way stretch selvedge in our Los Angeles workshop. Our denim goes through a time consuming 50 day process from start to finish to ensure the highest of quality. Built using only the best available hardware with traditional machines and techniques, you are getting a true vintage inspired piece with a modern upgrade of comfort.

Great jeans, great color

I’ve found the Pen Slim is a great fit for me and probably for most people. Not too slim, not too baggy. The 14 ounce denim is also fantastic, feels great on even in a little bit warmer weather, but never feels too light unless it’s absolutely frigid. 14 oz is pretty much all I buy now from Kato.
This particular color, old blue, is really nice and IMO is visually a bit different in person vs how it appears on the website, but in a better way. The color is a deeper blue, less washed-out appearing than in the pictures. Great job on these jeans. They’re one of my favorites.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review for The Pen Slim - Old Blue Raw 14oz Selvedge. We're so glad to hear that you love the fit and weight of the denim. We appreciate your feedback on the color as well, and we're happy to hear that it's even better in person. It's great to know that these jeans are one of your favorites. We hope you continue to enjoy them! Thanks for choosing Kato.

Amazing color and fit

I’ve recently been purchasing a bunch of their denim. This color is the one!! Deep color but when the sun hits it is when it really pops and shows its character. And the 14oz feels great. I’ll be purchasing strictly the 14oz from Kato going forward.

Top Quality and Amazing Look

I love my Old Blue Raw Pens, they look and feel amazing. The color is deep, the texture is visually-appealing, and they fit perfectly. They’re a perfect Fall jean and look great with boots and a plaid shirt.

Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so happy to hear that you're enjoying your Old Blue Raw Pens! We hope you'll continue to use them and enjoy the great looks and feel they provide.
