HIROSHI KATO

The Scissors Slim tapered - 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.

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

Most comfortable jeans in my collection!

I already had a pair of these jeans. I liked the look and feel to them so much that I had to purchase these jeans again. I have jeans from mostly all well known jean makers like, Iron Heart, APC, Nudie Jeans, SOSO, Unbranded, Brave Star, Blue Japan, The Flat Head, Rouge Territory, The Railcar, Naked and Famous, and anything else you can think of. Out of all of them I like these jeans with Iron Heart close 2nd. Buy these jeans to add to your daily wear, you will not be disappointed.

Hi Javier, thank you so much for taking the time to leave an excellent review. We really appreciate your business.

Really nice product, really limited return/exchange setup

Unfortunately the Hiroshi Kato returns system makes it difficult and expensive to switch between cuts. I tried the Scissors Slim and they were the wrong size and cut for me; but the only way to exchange for a different cut is to initiate a return, make a separate purchase, and pay shipping and forgo the new customer discount. Fixing this process should be a priority. In the meantime I'm looking forward to trying on the Straights I ordered to replace the Slims.

Thank you for the feedback, Eric!
We will look into it.
Hoping the Scissors Straight will work better for you.

Mixed feelings

Right out of the gate, these jeans boast 4 way stretch, but there isn’t even a quarter inch of give in any way direction. The color is the best aspect of these jeans. After a dozen or so wears over the course of a month, I can’t report any molding or “custom experience” thus far. For the price tag, I was raspy hoping for more of an experience. Also, back pockets are comical oversized and aren’t flattering in the slightest.

Hi Paul,

We appreciate your review.

Our team will be reaching out to you.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
