Product info

Jeans made in KATO' signature 4-Way Stretch Selvedge denim with Japanese thread. Unlike most other denim companies, we design, cut, and sew in the USA in Los Angeles, California.

This pair of Indigo Raw jeans is 14oz indigo-dyed denim woven on vintage shuttle looms at the world famous Kaihara Mill in Japan. As time passes it will begin to exhibit desirable fading at crease and stress points. Because of our signature 4-Way Stretch Selvedge denim material, our jeans are comfortable from day 1. Continuous wear only enhances the character, color, and comfort of our denim. 

This "Indigo Raw" is also made in the lighter 10.5oz material. 

This style is running true, so take your normal size. If in-between sizes, size up.

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

Please visit our Size Guide for guidance on how we measure our jeans.

    Just what I wanted

    Raw but comfortable

    A little stretch so it’s comfortable from the beginning. Look forward to the first wash.

    Great jeans!

    I am fairly short (5'7") with an athletic build and always have problems finding the right pair of jeans. Most designer jeans are either too long or are too tight or wide in the wrong places. These jeans still ran a little long for me, but a simple hem gave me the slim, elevated I was going for. The selvedge finish of the denim is real nice and gives a nice pop of color if you want to do a 1/4" fold on the cuff. I appreciate the workmanship of the denim also: The fabric is heavier weight and slight stretch is a forgiving on a guy with larger quads without feeling like leggings. Will buy again!

    New Satisfied Customer

    Gave myself a new Christmas present and purchased these for myself. I am very pleased with the quality of the product. They fit perfectly and after a weeks worth of wear I can already tell they will be my favorite jeans. I am looking forward to seeing how they mature and age. I will most definitely be a return customer.

    Spectacular Selvedge

    Dark denim, with stretch. Perfect for my active lifestyle. These look great with a crisp white shirt and or a t-shirt or polo. Dress it up with a nice blazer.. WIN WIN....
    Good purchase for sure. Stockin up....
