HIROSHI KATO

The Pen Slim - Indigo Raw Air 11.5oz

$209.00

Heavily Textured, Lightly Worn

In the pursuit of innovation we have created our latest achievement in denim. The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. We wanted to introduce a denim that had the look and feel of a 15oz denim but one felt light and very comfortable when worn. After a very long development process with a highly capable mill in Japan, we were finally able to make this vision a reality.

Instead of using the usual 3 X 1 weave of standard denim, we implemented a 5 x 1 weave. This creates a denim with a higher surface thread count but a lower overall thread count, making it lighter and still durable. The low tension yarns and loose denim weave contribute to the thicker look of the denim while maintaining its light feel. The overall result is a vintage textured denim that looks like heavy weight and feels like a lightweight.

• Slim fit

• Indigo Raw 11.5 oz

• 98% COTTON 2% 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 Addition to My Collection

These jeans fit and feel amazing. Have a great texture amazing feel.. But what sets them apart, is how they really allow air to flow through the denim on warm days. Highly recommend.

Interesting denim

As per the description, these jeans do have a heavy weight look but with the breathability of a lighter weight denim. If that is what you are looking for, give them a try. They have the same fit as my Pen 14 oz but the cuffs feel a little bit more like a donut because of the thicker fabric.

Thank you Raymond for your review!

We're happy to hear your liked our Air Selvedge.

I like what I see

I haven't wear or do any alteration yet, but I do like how it look and feel. I don't mind trying the lighter jean if I can get the same discount as the first one.

Thank you for your review! We're happy to hear you like our jeans!
