Double Volante

Recommended Posts

I've finally completed my order after weeks of inner debating with myself on what details to go with. My pair is kind of an engagement present from my girlfriend, soon to be fiance.

I get a "wet dream" pair of jeans and she gets a huge diamond ring; fair trade off the way I see it.

I'll post pics once I receive it, and I can promise a nice treat as I'm sending my own materials for a few of the most significant details.

Now, I've got to brace myself for a few weeks of anticipation.

Nice, from the google translated entry on doublevolante's site today, it sounds like my pair should be made and up on the website tomorrow.

edit:They're up:

b_F - understandable, I've heard a few people around here state that they didn't really like the rivets. I just think they give a rugged look on 21 oz. denim.

the pocketbags are Okinawan bingata. hand made/dyed and, from the pictures, I'm very pleased with how they turned out. like the denim, they too, will fade over time.

the red tab on the coin pocket, red fly j stitch, two red outter stitches, and the red Double Volante tab inside the back waist were meant to compliment the red-lined selvage zipper (not pictured)

back has selvage chambray lined back pockets with custom SMXDV leather tab, Okinawan steerhide leather patch, and custom arcuates.

Depending on the details and denim, they will set you back aprox $375...more if you go with special requested details, such as rivets, pocketbags, stitching etc...

I figure he would be, since he's based in the south, Okinawa. Most of the destruction came in the upper north in Sendai. I spoke to my peeps in Tokyo and they said the aftershock lasted for hours. they got a lot of shaking for a long time. The tsunami did the most damage, since it crushes almost everything in its path and starts fires and damages the nuclear power plants.

Perfectly understandable.

I hope the situation improves in Japan soon.

All my best wishes to everyone in Japan suffering right now.

spent the day googling about more information about ishinomaki in the miyagi prefecture and everything seems to be in ruins. i hope yuichi san and his loved ones made it, nevermind the shop (which i think would most likely have been gone).
