The Pen Slim - Paul 14oz Selvedge

SKU 3010-346-02-29

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.

• Slim fit

• 4-Way stretch selvedge denim

Our denim goes through a time consuming 50 day process from start to finish to ensure the highest of quality. Built using only the best available hardware with traditional machines and techniques, you are getting a true vintage inspired piece with a modern upgrade of comfort.

Colin Levy
Best Pair of Jeans Bar None

These jeans don't just look good, they are durable, incredibly well-made, and super comfortable. It is rare to find all those things in the same pair of jeans. While there may be jeans out there that claim to be all these things at a lower price point, but I would be wary of such claims. Hiroshi Kato know their denim and clearly take pride in their work. This will most certainly not be the last pair of jeans or other garments I purchase. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Colin! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying them and appreciate your feedback. We hope you'll continue to shop with us and recommend our products to your friends. Thanks again!

Another great pair

12 pairs in on my Kato collection and these are one of my new favorites. As always the comfort and fit are spot on, the fading is suble and not over processed. Love em!

Wow, thank you so much for your continued support, Will. We appreciate it.
