    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    @edmond wrote thoses a couple time on the thread that Resolute had a few different denim over the years with little changes to fine tune what Hayashi-san consider perfection. I also talked to superstitchparis whom is the official resolute dealer for Europe and he was testing a new denim in 2019 on a pair of 710. I’ve seen it in person and it was a little bit darker when new because cotton was less white.

    Ask him when the new resolute denim with unbleached (darker) threads is coming

    Denim Repair

    @Double 0 Soul I've look the whole thread but couldn't find it. But by watching all @jyoni repairs, I think he would have done it with back stitch like I've did on a pair. The result is correct but nowhere an original hem. @428CJ Thanks for your description! I think the end result are the same as my first picture if I'm not mistaken ? But you use double thread which make your sewing looks more like a machine would. Anyway it really looks good. If you have the time to take a couple pictures to show how you exactly are doing it would be great Hard to get it by text aha

    Denim Repair

    @428CJ Really nicely done. I'm super interested in how you proceed for the hand chain stitch ? I've searched quite a bit but never found the way to properly do a chainstitch by hand. I've found the embroidery chainstitch but it doesn't match the originally chain stitch. I've trier both method shown on the bottom but I'm not a fan of the result. I've never tried with a double thread tho. is it what you are doing ? Shown on the bottom how a machine is doing the double locking chainstitch by a machine. Never tried it by hand tho. I'm sewing my hem with back stitch and passing by the middle of the thread.

    @Geeman @louisbosco Thanks guys, appreciate it. I don't really like the new versions of the iris, especially since they released it as "Iris jacket". But this version is my favorite and the cupra nylon really as a vintage feel and an appreciable low sheen. And a plus, it's warm !

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    @lophophora Thanks for your input, very useful. As you have +1 in Ooe compared to Roy and a close « build » to mine... how do they fit and feel compared to each other ? Does the Roy have more space with the bigger measurements ? EDIT: Got the Roy in 31. Many thanks to all for your quick and helpful answers, appreciate it

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    Nice fits on both! @lophophora Roy seems slimmer, is it the case ?

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    @Broark Yup, it helps a lot. Exactly what I was waiting for, thanks a lot! I'll take 31 ! Does the denim shrink more than the 3" in length announced by SelfEdge ? I figured I could get them hemmed raw by SE and shrink them to the good length afterwards instead of sending them elsewhere after a couple of soaks

    Roy. (expurgated edition)

    I was looking to purchase the new Roy at SelfEdge but can't figure out my size with their way to measure it (on the was it band). Comparing my pairs I should either take 31 or 32. Any advice to give me ? ( 32 Fullcount 1108, 32 Ooe Yofukuten, 31 Warehouse 800, 32 Resolute 710 etc...) Sorry if it's a dumb question but I don't want to do any mistakes and would appreciate any input from people who wear Roy too. @Broark ?

    @mpukas Thanks mate! It’s a Visvim jacket from their FW12 collection. It’s made in Italy from a gorgeous cowhide. It features 2 hidden side pockets with a custom riri zip, indigo dyed patch and vintage conchos on sleeves. I like it a lot but find that the sleeves are a tad too long. Will send it to alter when I can find someone to trust. I wish I had one their natural processed one (painted with ashes, mud dyed, indigo painted/dyed) but the retail is crazy stupid. Got this one second hand in new condition for a quarter of the price. Visvim makes great garments but the retail price outside Japan (and in Japan) is crazy expensive not to say stupid for a bunch of garments. All my collection is second hand except a pair of shoes. Here is a cochineal dyed one : And the indigo painted one:
