The Scissors Slim tapered - Ace 10.5oz Selvedge

SKU 301519827-29

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.

Because our 10oz denim represents a modern denim fabric, we paired it with a higher contrast fade for the Ace, to emulate the type of fades you see on modern Japanese jeans. The Ace wash having the highest contrast and most defined creasing of all of our aged denim washes.

Good Fit & Really Fake Finish

Ordered these and I will start by saying the fit and quality seem great. I've not bought from the brand before, so that was good to see. However, I had to return them because I found the faux worn finish to be really really fake looking. The whiskering and honeycombs were just off for me - I can see others really like them. I was surprised b/c plenty of brands make jeans in a pre-worn look that are fine. At this price-point, I think I was just surprised at how poor the effect was on these. I decided I'm going to order the regular indigo raw finish in 14oz. and hope that's a better option for me.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our product. We're glad to hear that you liked the fit and quality of The Scissors Slim tapered jeans. However, we apologize if the faux worn finish did not meet your expectations. Your feedback has been shared with our designer. We hope that the 14oz raw works for you. If you have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you for choosing our brand.

Love them

I usually don’t buy pre-distressed jeans (aside from simple washing). But I currently lack a nicely worn in pair so I tried these. I was not disappointed, really like them, nice worn in effect without looking overdone. Great job on the wash! Also, the usual high quality construction I’ve come to expect with Kato denim.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Scissors Slim tapered jeans. We are thrilled to hear that you love them and that the pre-distressed effect met your expectations. -Kato Team

Bags Out After Two wears

I really wanted to love these. They felt great on the first wear, looked great. But after two wears the seat and thighs bagged out significantly. Major diaper butt. I tried contacting customer support, but it was final sale and they said it was within specs. I tried hot wash and machine dry to shrink but two wears later back at diaper butt. Really bummed. I would strongly recommend sizing down!

Major Design Flaw

The Whisker design on these jeans were badly misplaced and frankly, look ridiculous. The photos are Misleading and don’t show this.
I have purchased 3 other pair of HK jeans which I love, but these are unwearable, I’ll feel like a fool. I can’t return them since I had them hemmed.
