About us

Inspired by classic garments, KATO focuses on combining the modern need for comfort with the love for vintage pieces. Taking inspiration from hardware, stitching and even machinery used and blending it with innovative blends of fabric and new fits, KATO is dedicated to creating timeless pieces that you’ll hold on to for years. 

We’ve developed signature materials like our 4 Way Stretch that consists of combining traditional Japanese denim and a 4 Way Stretch material allowing us to create the most comfortable pair of selvedge jeans from day one of wearing them. That innovation also led KATO to develop Denit®, a new knit material that looks like denim but essentially feels like loungewear giving you comfort and style wherever you go.

We’ve always put quality first. All of our garments are made at our workshop in Los Angeles, California. Our selvedge denim is created just outside of Tokyo and then imported into the U.S where each pair of jeans goes through a long process from pattern making to sewing, washing and durability tests. This allows us maximum control to continuously put out the best quality possible.

Our garments are inspired by classic menswear designs that have stood the test of time with fashion for decades. Our goal is to produce pieces that you’ll be wearing for years to come by combining our passion for vintage menswear with the modern need for comfort.
