    forgot if this was the relevant thread for this given the date, but K-san just finished sewing up my jeans. http://doublevolante.ti-da.net/
  3. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    personally did not see anything wrong with the model, i mean we all have different body types so... off-topic but ordered SDA t-shirts the other day off a rakuten e-store - i know my size due to fitting them in person, but i can never use the Japanese models as a reference point since my shoulders are wider than the average Japanese guy, haha.
  4. The Flat Head

    blast from the past, but does anybody by any chance remember the Self Edge x RJB Black x Black collab jean? (RJB66BSPBK) I'm trying to recall what the specs of the jeans are, but no dice.
  5. Studio D'artisan

    there indeed will be, he's created a sample pair in his latest update: http://doublevolante.ti-da.net/e9675137.html
  6. Japan Trip

    apologies, re-reading my post i definitely could've phrased it a little cleaner. comes off as a lot more passive aggressive than how i felt while typing it... and certainly, that's likely why my friend wanted to visit the venue! while i was having a so-so time, my friend had a great time.
  7. Japan Trip

    As a Japanese citizen with roots in the states, I can profess/confirm the following with regards to the robot restaurant: -food and drink is bad, don't order any -feel it is very hit or miss, you either like it or hate it (i didn't enjoy it myself, took a friend who was visiting who wanted to see it) -it is very wacky, but I wouldn't categorize it as 'so Japan' considering the locals don't really embrace it. it's primarily a tourist trap

    very nice, i own the 2016 lightning denim issue myself but that's it.

  10. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    very nice! forgot about the sda order he fulfilled, should've asked him some questions about it... oh well. and will do on the finished product. he estimated about 3 months so it will be some time. i should bump the old miz thread on that occasion...
  11. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Hi all, first post in a long while. does anybody remember doublevolante? I had the chance to visit Okinawa yesterday and finally got around to ordering a pair. Had some small talk with K-san and he says that WH is probably the most popular domestic brand in the raw denim game at the moment, pbj the most popular internationally (FYI this is based on his talks with clients and not based on actual numbers)
  12. Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

    stopped by SENY for the first time in a long time the other day, thanks for the help. friend wasn't convinced by any of the fits he tried (3sixteen, iron heart, imperial) but ended up going with the f310s. think it was a bridge for him to gap to spend that kind of money on denim for the first time rather than being comfortable with the pair/fit, but i have no doubt he'll be happy with em over his rag and bones.
  13. Double Volante

    I actually live in North Jersey, I happened to stop by Okinawa for vacation last summer where I got to meet kuniyoshi-san and check out his workshop. I was going to order a pair, but I couldn't figure out a way to make a payment (didn't have enough cash on me in person, /lifebeat) without a middleman and before I knew it I was getting swamped with work/life... I had a friend who is working in Okinawa about 15 minutes away from the DV workshop. I'm sure he is taking local orders. Why don't you ask your friend to find out for you? My hunch is that the main obstacle with online orders is 1) payment, and 2) his lack of computer/internet skills to take on more orders.
  14. Double Volante

    I'm not sure. He mentioned to me he's currently doing work for SDA, and that much is reflected on his blog. He does still actively take orders from said reputable brands. Haha, I don't know. It may be his polite way of saying thank you but no thank you... but on a real note, you can imagine the trouble of him fulfilling an online order as opposed to a local / nation-wide order over the phone etc.
  15. Double Volante

    Hey man, I was able to get a hold of Kuniyoshi-san today. He is very busy, taking on massive orders from reputable brands abroad Japan. unfortunately, he is too swamped at this time to take additional online orders. while he would love to take on more work, he feels it would be inappropriate as the turn-around time at this point would take way too long. I'll let you guys know if his situation changes. I'm sad because I wanted to fulfil an old order myself, but I am glad his business is taking off.
