With over 20 years of experience in the denim industry, Yoshiyuki Hayashi founded Resolute in 2010 with the idea of producing just four styles of denim in an abundance of sizes. Whilst each of these four models is based on a vintage pair, any details that could be considered unnecessary have been removed, leaving only the most important elements and a real emphasis on fabric.
From the dying of the yarn to the final sewing process with a UnionSpecial sewing machine, Resolute's denim is made entirely in Japan. The selvedge fabric is woven by Shinya Co. Ltd. on a vintage power loom which is used exclusively by the brand, whilst the jeans are sewn and finished by Nimi Sewing Co. Both Shinya and Nimi are based in Okayama; a prefecture famed for its denim production.
Yoshiyuki believes that this simplified approach to denim making will allow his product to be be worn in more ways and for longer, becoming a useful tool in ones wardrobe, even as your own personal style changes.
With the arrival of the 712, the latest addition to our Resolute roster, we thought it was about time to break down each model by fit and style so that you can pick your next pair of Resolute jeans with ease.
The 710 is Resolute's core model and is inspired by 60s style denim jeans. With a medium to high rise and a straight leg, the fit is slim but not tight, meaning that it will work for just about anyone. Because of the fit, the 710 can be worn with both smart and casual outfits. Try it with an Oxford shirt and navy sport coat or a white T-shirt and chore jacket.
The 711 model from Resolute is based on 50s style workwear denim. It has a straight leg with a low rise, meaning a fuller, looser cut. It will work well with casual shoes or suede boots and like the 710 can easily be dressed up or down. If you prefer your denim a little loose with more room for movement, then the 711 is the style for you.
The 712 from Resolute is their slimmest fitting style. The 712 has a low rise and a straight leg that is tapered just below the knee. It's the only model from Resolute with a zip fly which is a nod to the original jeans this model is inspired by. If you're looking for a more contemporary fit, then the 712 is it.
