HIROSHI KATO

The Pen Slim - Indigo Black Raw 10.5oz

$198.00

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.

Perfect Pair of Jeans

Customer service was great and the answered all my questions regarding their raw denim. Was able to get the size and length needed. They have the option to hem with chain stitching. The denim was a perfect fit and I plan to get another pair.

Thank you for your review, Ryan!
We take pride in our customer service, we are glad they were able to answer all your questions, we hope you continue to enjoy our Pen Slim fit.

Great color, great fit

Excellent fit and fabric; easy to move in, and well-cut. The deep indigo color is a real winner!

Thank you for your review, Nicholas.
We're happy you like our Pen Slim fit and color.

Very high quality

So comfortable with quality visible in every detail. Simply some of the best jeans out there. The indigo powder does shed a bit so be carful about letting them come into contact with lighter fabrics, I’d also worry about sitting on white leather with these. This is only the case with the black indigo color, lighter colors even those pretty dark which also came with a warning about color transfer did not have this issue. But the black indigo is such a nice color I’d say it’s worth it. If you’re on the fence about getting these jeans or a different brand, get the Katos. Unbeatable quality.

Thank you Torin for your review!

Your insight with the raw denim color transfer is quite helpful for new buyers.

We're happy to hear our selvedge worked out perfectly for you!

Poor quality and customer service

After owning these jeans for less than a month they began to develop loose threads. When I contacted customer support for advice about a repair or replacement, I was told there is nothing they can do. I found this to be unfriendly to both customers and the environment. Even if they can’t replace the jeans, I feel the company could offer more advice on how to get them fixed. I like the fit and feel of the jeans, and would have bought another pair. Now I’m just going to look elsewhere.

Hi Chris,

We apologize for your experience. We sent you an email!
