96% COTTON/4% POLYURETHANE

4-Way stretch selvedge denim

Made in USA

Model is 6'2" and wearing a size 32.

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.

Accurate Fit, Feels Good

I haven't given these my tortune test yet, I'm still in the trial period. I ordered 38, and wasit feels true to size. Slightly tight, but clearly room to break in and give. The cut is true to size as well - straight legs, not tapered. I would say slim/traditional cut - not skinny jeans look, i.e. clinging to calves. I like their fabric blend with poly, definitely gives the entire pants a much more athletic feel, sort of like wearing secret gym pants. Will be great for motorcycle riding!

We are very glad you like the fit of the Pen, Matthew. We really care about the materials, and thanks for helping others with your comment!

Best Fitting Denim

The best fitting denim in my closet. Whether it's the 10.5 oz or 14 oz, you can't go wrong. I'm on my fifth pair of Pen Slims and just discovered the Denit in Old Khaki. The reason I love the fit is that I don't have to wear a belt in a Size 30, perfect fit in the waist and rise. These jeans wash well too!!

I should also mention that Kato has excellent customer service. After purchasing many pairs 10.5 oz or 14 oz from my favourite denim retailer, I noticed that first pair of Pen Slim (Rain) that I purchased from my retailer, was missing a leather KATO patch. If I'm going to spend $300+ on a pair of denim, I want to show the name proudly. After reaching out their customer service, I told them I was missing a leather patch, and they were happy to send me one, and I had it sewed on by a local tailor.

Thanks Kato for making an excellent product and for having first class customer service!

Hi Jason

We're happy that we have nice customers who leave a kind review like this. People are unsure about size when they order clothing online so it always helps when we get a review with sizing information.

Thank you for mentioning our customer care. These nice comments motivate us to work harder.

The Pen Rain = Amazing Stretch Denim

I was a bit hesitant to buy a pair of stretch selvedge, especially online. But the reviews were so unanimous and the jeans themselves looked too good, so I took a chance and Im an immediate Kato-convert. They arrived within a few days, the quality is obvious everywhere, the fabric and wash are top quality, and the comfort? Im not even sure what accolade to drop here. Never felt denim this silky and dynamic to move in. I pulled the trigger on the 14oz Tyler wash within days and Im already eyeing out some raw denim and a shirt or two. My other denim in the closet are also high quality and solid, but they might also be pretty lonely in the following decades :) For size, Im 6ft, 170-175lbs and can go with 32 or 33 depending on the cut. Because of the stretch I went with the 32's and they are spot on

Hi Steve

Very awesome denim

I am perfectly satisfied with this. Perfect fit and feel. I can tell they will age nicely. Quality piece of clothing! Kato was quick with the delivery and the packaging was nice. I bought another pair of jeans and a jacket two days later.

Hi Nino

Welcome to Kato family! We are happy that you liked your first pair of jeans and also got a jacket, not only jeans. Did the jacket work for you well too? Let us know if you have any concerns. Thank you!
