The Pen Slim - Jett 14oz Selvedge


Slim fit, medium rise, vintage fade Indigo Japanese 14oz 4-Way Stretch Selvedge, zip fly, premium leather patch, and custom-branded hardware. Made in USA.


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.

These jeans are amazing and I love the darker Wash on the Jett. I have several pairs of Kato jeans and they are the best jeans I have ever owned. My other favorites are the Julian and Mani washes.

Great jeans

These are my favorite pair of jeans. Very comfortable and a great dark wash. They’re also a good weight, not too heavy or too light. My only complaint is the right leg seams. They are not straight and twist a little down my leg. Not that big of a deal and not worth returning but I didn’t expect this for the price of these.

Thank you for your review, Dan! We're sorry to hear that you experienced some inconsistencies with the seams on one of your jeans. We'll be sure to pass on your feedback to our production team.
