due to popular demand, i have created this thread to show the available options for Kuniyoshi-san's Double Volante jeans. i will upload more options as they become available. to learn more about Kuniyoshi-san and Double Volante, please go here:

http://www.superfutu...ad.php?t=149004

first, here are the available denim options.

he has four basic denim types available. he can special order other types of denim, but these are the four types that he always has in stock.

1) 15 oz., right hand twill, tight weave. this is his most popular denim. it has a tight weave that fades extremely well. the indigo is very dark.

this pair has been worn for about 2 years.

Posted Image


2) 14.75 oz., right hand twill, loose weave. this denim has a looser weave and is slightly "rougher" looking. it has more pronounced vertical falling lines once faded.

Posted Image

this pair has been worn about a year and a half.

3) 14.75 oz., left hand twill, regular weave. this denim is kuniyoshi-san's choice for left hand twill denim. it fades very well with the characteristic left hand twill haziness. it is also very comfortable.

this pair has been worn for 2 and a half years.

4) 21 oz., right hand twill, tight weave. this is the heavyweight king of denim. it is extreme in every sense--the denim is heavy, the indigo is very dark and the weave is tight. still, it is not too stiff to allow for comfort.

Posted Image

this pair has been worn for about 1 year.

Great thread miz!

I love my pair 21oz. Just like you stated, the denim is very dark and rigid but yet soft and comfortable.

I´m eying the 15 oz and I might pick up a pair in spring...

Would rep and big kudos for this thread! It´s a brand that´s not known by every denimnerd out there yet but will be in the near future.

What´s good miz?

This is truly awesome (and overdue). I don't think I've seen any other make of jeans with such fine examples of their denim worn in. That 15oz and LHT denim looks amazing, grail status material.

Thanks again, miz, for sharing the wonders of Kuniyoshi-san's craft.

Great thread! Was wondering when an official thread was going to be made. When the 811 contest is over, I planned on wearing my Porky's next, but those color on the 15oz RHT is too nice. Looks like my '66 DV's are getting priority.

I'm loving my 15oz RHT, and after seeing those evo pics I'm going to wear them more and hopefully post some evo pics here. The denim is really amazing and like everyone said the attention to detail is superb.

I'd love to see more pairs. Have only seen a couple thus far.

Miz - can we get some shots of your original pair from the original So, I'm having a pair of jeans made thread?

It's been a couple years now, no? I'm sure they're epic.

for those who have bought jeans recently, does he do custom sizes or use the prebuilt 47, 66 and 19cm cuts?

i think i know what youre trying to get at, however you probably phrased it wrong...

but to answer it straight up, yeah, there is no one size fits all

to answer it by assuming what i think you meant to say, he has templates for those cuts that he goes by and if you want it adjusted i'm sure he will do it for you

K-san has a few different cuts available. Obviously you'd pick your cut, then you'd pick the size you want. He will also take your measurements to make sure you're getting the right size, and perhaps, adjust just a touch.
