KATO BLADE JACKET 11.5 oz DENIM, 4 WAY INDIGO
This variant is currently sold out
In the pursuit of innovation KATO has created a great achievement in denim. The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. The goal was a denim that had the look and feel of a 15oz denim but felt light and very comfortable when worn. After a very long development process with a highly capable mill in Japan, they were finally able to make this vision a reality.
Instead of using the usual 3 X 1 weave of standard denim, The 4 way Blade jacket was 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. The Blade Jacket has undergone a wash to add to the vintage look and broken in feel.
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.
