Meet the "Resolute" Founder
YOSHIYUKI HAYASHI - Denim Designer
Born in 1956. Based in Osaka.
In 1988, as a designer for establishment of DENIME, Yoshiyuki Hayashi is scrupulous with his huge passion for denim, and becomes an existence which tows the unprecedented replica jeans boom in Japan. DENIME, in the years since, had expanded and was eventually bought out by Hitoshi Tsujimoto, the owner of Real McCoy’s. It was at this point that Hayashi left DENIME to focus once again on his true aim: creating a perfect replica of the Levi’s 501…and thus Resolute was born.
Hayashi loves to wear his jeans with a very short inseam, leading to the so called “ankle-freezer” look. Many Resolute’s Japanese customers are following this style. Apart from Resolute, this style is very common nowadays and you see it nearly everywhere. To be fair, Hayashi-san has been wearing his jeans this way for many years already, and so many denimheads call this look the “Hayashi-style”.
