Kato Denim - Japanese Selvedge Denim That's Super Comfy Right Out The Gate

Fred Whitefield

Posted on August 24 2017

We love selvedge denim.  It's the highest quality denim available.  But sometimes it’s stiff and takes time to break it in.
Kato has done away with the break in period by adding 4-way stretch to their selvedge.  They look and feel like raw selvedge, because they are!  But they’re actually comfortable.   
And while Kato Denim cuts and sews their denim in Los Angeles, their denim comes from the highly regarded Kaihara  denim factory in Japan.  (We’ve consulted experts and they all agree.  It’s the good stuff.)
Kato Denim comes in three fits:  the Needle, a skinny fit; the Pen, a slim tapered fit and the Hammer, is a straight fit.  Something for everybody. 
Convert is hosting a Kato trunk show this weekend featuring lots of fits and washes so you can find your favorite new pair of jeans. Sat 8/26 at our Berkeley store. Sun 8/27 in our SF store on Hayes St. 1-5pm. Get a cool Bearbrick keychain gift with Kato purchase

If you can't make it to one of our Bay Area stores, you can find Kato right here.
