Inspired by classic garments, KATO focuses on combining the modern need for comfort with the love for vintage pieces. Taking inspiration from hardware, stitching and even machinery used and blending it with innovative blends of fabric and new fits, KATO is dedicated to creating timeless pieces that you’ll hold on to for years.
By always putting quality first. All of their garments are made at their workshop in Los Angeles, California. Their selvedge denim is created just outside of Tokyo and then imported into the U.S where each pair of jeans goes through a long process from pattern making to sewing, washing and durability tests. This allows us maximum control to continuously put out the best quality possible.
Their garments are inspired by classic menswear designs that have stood the test of time with fashion for decades. Hiroshi Kato's goal is to produce pieces that you’ll be wearing for years to come by combining their passion for vintage menswear with the modern need for comfort.
