The Blade Jacket Air 11.5OZ - Indigo Raw
Heavily Textured, Lightly Worn
The idea for Selvedge Air was born out of the love for old vintage denim and the need for comfort. Kato 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, they were able to make this vision a reality.
Instead of using the usual 3 X 1 weave of standard denim, they 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 Kato's denim are processed to control the order of the denim fiber but not this style. The odor will go away in the course of time.
