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.

You may notice this material has an odor of denim fiber. Most of our denim are processed to control the order of the denim fiber but this style. The odor will go away in the course of time

Indigo Raw

4-Way stretch selvedge denim

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.

Growing into them…..and liking them with each successive wearing

Upon first wearing…they felt a bit less comfortable than my Scissors Slim Tapered 10.5 oz version…but the feeling of the material against your skin does have an airy feeling that seems to regulate your skin temperature between walking to the tango dance club in the evening’s cool and breezy weather…but not feeling like you are over heating when dancing. Finally, i have come to appreciate the look and feel of the fabric’s external ‘texture’ giving it a bit more visual depth of field and makes for interesting pairing of shirts, sweaters and jackets. Looking forward to seeing how well the age w time.

Thank you Rodney for your review!

Love the way you explained the feel of our Selvedge!! We're glad our jeans worked out perfectly for you.

Great pair of denim

Denim heads, this is my 3rd pair of selvedge style pants and and first pair of Kato’s. Gotta say that I love these. The stretch weave in these denim pants must be worn to be appreciated. Try a pair and trust me!

Just perfect

This is truly top quality denim. Worth every penny. The Scissors is the perfect fit for someone with an athletic build and gives you more room to move than the Pen.

Thank you Marc! We're glad the Scissors worked out perfectly for you! Definitely The Scissors are good fit for athletes out there.
