What is denim weights?

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.

Great Jeans but don't dare try to send to Europe

These jeans are fantastic, worth the hype and worth every penny. However seems like Hiroshi Kato hasn't figured out how to deal with European imports and duties like everyone else by this point. I had to pay €200 in tariffs to import to Spain. Unbelievable. Worst of all wrote them twice about this and basically got no response.

Mind blown

I typically wear Naked and Famous jeans but couldn't find the exact shade i wanted so my local boutique (Artisan Deluxe, Columbus OH) turned me to Kato. Im completely impressed by the fit and quality! The level if comfort is amazing as well. Im in love with theses jeans and am ordering a black pair next.

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.
