The Hammer Straight- Night 10.5oz Selvedge


Slim fit, medium rise, vintage fade black Japanese 10.5oz 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.

• 96% Cotton 4% Polyurethane

Fantastic fit. Perfect weight. No break-in required.

These jeans immediate vaulted to the top of my rotation. They have the quality feel that you want from selvedge denim, but they're not stiff and uncomfortable as is so often the case. They don't require a lengthy break-in period that often comes with jeans of this quality.

Thank you so much for your kind words! We're thrilled to hear that you are loving our Hammer Straight- Night 10.5oz Selvedge jeans. We hope they continue to be a staple in your wardrobe. -Kato Team

Form meets function meets comfort

Hiroshi Kato gear is, hands down, the best gear in my closet. I've got more than a few of the who's who in the world of quality, japanese-made selvedge. I love them all, but this jean(and all other Hiroshi Kato gear) has a special place in my heart because it's made here in SoCal, comfortable like no other, and is unmatched in style/design. Definitely worth it!!

Thank you for your positive review! We're thrilled to hear that our Hiroshi Kato gear has a special place in your heart. Our team takes great pride in creating products that not only look stylish, but also provide comfort and functionality. We appreciate your support and hope to continue exceeding your expectations. Thank you for choosing The Hammer Straight-Night jeans.

Does the job.

Coming out of heavy non-stretch denim it's taken time to get used to these being so stretchy, but I'm slowly getting there. They are comfortable for sure. I do wish the black were offered in something heavier in the hammer because they are a bit thin, especially when youre used to 21oz and 23 oz...they feel like tissue paper. If they were offered in a heavier weight I'd definitely be a life customer.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our 'The Hammer Straight- Night 10.5oz Selvedge'. We're glad to hear that you find them comfortable and that you're slowly getting used to the stretchiness.

We appreciate your feedback about the thickness of the fabric and we'll definitely take it into consideration for future product development. We're always looking for ways to improve and meet our customers' needs.

Kelly Robason
Great fit!

First order and I really like them. Hoping the denim keeps its shape over multiple wearings (rather than stretching out in the seat like a lot of denim/poly blend jeans). Glad I found these!

Thank you for your review, Kelly! We're glad you like the fit and quality of the jeans. We hope you'll enjoy them for many wears. To maintain their shape we recommend following the care instructions.
