Kato’s respect for denim reaches back decades. Our years of experience and research resulted in our own version of the sought after denim of the 50s. This fabric has been crafted with meticulous precision to replicate the uniform texture of the faded vintage denim collected for the Kato archives.
To make this a timeless pair of jeans, we chose our straight cut, “The Hammer” and the modern slim cut “The Pen”. The 12.5 ounce, 100% cotton denim does not have stretch but it will break in and mold to you, making it a pair you will want to wear for years. We wanted these jeans to be vintage down to the core details, so we introduced a button fly, using donut style laurel leaf buttons, which have been acid dyed to give them an authentic aged look. We also added a pop of color with a red leather patch, our own twist on the original. We are offering several versions of the Classic Slub Denim that represent different stages of aging.
Miles - Overdyed Indigo
This is a very special version of our Classic Slub Denim. We took the Raw Indigo jeans and overdyed them black for a pair that will produce fades like no other. The jeans start out looking black with a deep indigo undertone. As they fade, the indigo is revealed, which will also eventually fade, showing the white core of the fabric yarns. These distinct fades are sought after by denim connoisseurs, will have more contrast and definition.
These jeans are non stretch and take time to break in.
