Double Volante interview (Yu Kuniyoshi)

Recommended Posts

Not super well-known, Yu Kuniyoshi of Double Volante has quietly been doing his thing on the sunny island of Okinawa for over 13 years now, after spending 10 years in Okayama at Kapital learning his craft. A super friendly guy, Kuniyoshi-san is old school...the guy doesn't even own a computer. :biggrin:

Hope you'll enjoy the interview, but I should warn you that it's pretty much impossible to get his jeans if you live outside of Japan because he has no stockists, no online shop, and doesn't speak much English. He did tell me however that you're welcome to try and DM him on Instagram (@doublevolante), but please be understanding that a reply might take some time as he tries to work through the language thing. Enjoy!
