Because of its extreme comfort and effortless versatility, “The Ripper” Double Gauze Shirt has become KATO's flagship shirt. Double gauze fabric is a very lightweight cotton fabric that has a very loose weave. The fabrics amazing texture offers the wearer ultra soft comfort making this the perfect shirt for every occasion.
The Denit® Pants are reminiscent of the vintage stay-pressed pants made popular in the 60’s and 70’s, but with innovative updates to the fabric and a modern fit to achieve unparalleled comfort and style. Years of meticulous development of both the fabric and construction make this possible. The result is a unique knit pant that retains its shape and will last for years.
The Fabric Denit® is a knit fabric specially developed to have the comfort of sweatpants and the rebounding qualities of our 4 Way Stretch Selvedge but the unmistakable softness of a knit fabric. Made from 70% cotton, 21% Polyester, 9% Polyurethane.
We were very interested in the potential of this fabric and were inspired to make a knit 5-pocket pant with it, something we have not seen done before.
The journey was far from over.
The techniques used to successfully sew this fabric into pants had not yet been developed and it was thought to be impossible. Because of the incredible quality of this fabric, we were excited to take on the challenge. We worked for a year to develop a technique of sewing that would not only enhance the comfort and mobility but also preserve the beauty of the fabric. We are very proud of what we have achieved.
