Copy of About us


KATO focuses on combining the modern need for comfort with the love for vintage pieces. Our roots are steeped in classic American heritage style, from iconic vintage workwear to military-inspired apparel. We always put quality first. All of our garments are made at our factory in Los Angeles, California.


Nick Noguchi, the designer at KATO, had a vision: to make the most comfortable stretch denim with the look and durability of vintage selvedge. After years of development, we were able to create this amazing 4-Way Stretch Selvedge. Typical stretch denim only expands horizontally, our 4-Way Stretch Selvedge stretches both horizontally and vertically. This unique flexibility in the fabric ensures comfort that adapts to your movements. Kato 4-way Stretch Selvedge is crafted on vintage shuttle looms at our Japanese Mill, this authentic selvedge denim not only promises unparalleled comfort but also outlasts traditional stretch, maintaining its shape and resisting bagging over time.


While we honor our Japanese roots, we live and operate here in the US. There is nothing more important to us than making selvedge denim of the highest quality while building strong bonds with the people we work with. Japanese denim, American built. We are involved in every step of the manufacturing process. By crafting our garments in our own factory, we can keep a very close eye on quality control.
