Hiroshi Kato’s ‘The Hammer’ Straight in Raw 12.5oz Natural Slub Indigo jean is here to make your Summer a lot more comfortable. Straight leg fits are always a good option in the warmer months. Well, in any month, for that matter, but the denim on these is also 12.5 ounces per square yard. That’s lighter than average and would qualify these jeans as a summer weight in our minds.
Kato is a newer, made-in-USA brand that’s been on our radar, and these selvedge jeans are a stand-out in their collection. They’re equipped with a perfectly vintage-hued slightly slubby sanforized (pre-shrunk) denim, a classic and minimal 5 pocket pattern, rivet and bar tack reinforcements throughout, selvedge detail on the coin pocket, metal button fly, arcuate-free back pockets, and ‘Kato’ branded leather patch on the back that you can slide your belt into. Kato recommends you take these with a snug fit, as the fabric will relax and stretch a bit, so go for your true size (and always check the size charts!).
Available for $228 at Hiroshi Kato.
