Kato by Hiroshi Kato
“ The Blade” Denim Jacket design was based on a vintage denim jacket with pleats on the front, often seen in the 1930s.
This symbol of vintage design was called "pleated blouse" in 1930 and originally adopted the design of a shirt.
The design that symbolize vintage, such as pleat secured by box-stitches, a pocket on one side (not both sides),
created more emphasized vintage-like design.
Front Pleat - There is a function that makes it easy to expand and contract due to the pleats.
Front Pocket - The design of the breast pocket is a pocket type of KATO's original 5p jeans, and it is a deformed design that symbolizes KATO'. In addition, the pocket is oriented in a different direction from the body. This is because the body and the pocket will fade differently as you wear them.
Stitches - We adopted three chain stitches to armholes, back yoke, and side seams make it stronger and easy to fade.
Side Pockets - Although it is not in the original vintage design, the side pockets have been added for functionality and ease of use.
