Q. Those who can't select a size…

A.. You should wear fitted RESOLUTE. The most important thing for size selection is finding the right fit for you. We have some ideas to help you find the right fit. We want you to enjoy the sophisticated, smart silhouette of RESOLUTE 710 jeans, so when you are wearing RESOLUTE for the first time, it is important to check the fit. “You can wear RESOLUTE without a belt with a snug fit from your hip to your thigh.” Some people like it tighter, others prefer it loose. In the end, you should wear your favorite RESOLUTE size. If you have any problems, we’ll handle them at any time.

Q. Those who decided to buy jeans of one-wash type. If I wash them many times, will they shrink?

A.. When you bought it, it’s the smallest size. The more you wear it, the bigger the size becomes. However in the case of using clothes dryer many times, it may become different from the ordinary size selection. If you don’t know it, please feel free to ask the ZABOU staff.

Q. Is it possible to wash denim too much?

A.. No, it is not. There is no such a thing as too much. As Mr. Hayashi, RESOLUTE designer, said
“It’s just a jeans!”. We recommend to wash ordinary and wear RESOLUTE many times. If you leave dirt from skin on denim, the fabric will tend to wear out. You must break in your jeans. Then your jeans create BuriBuri, the stiches have a sawtooth pattern the denim has kyers. About timing of washing, you should wash when you think the denim is dirty considering the usage and now many times you wore the jeans. In fact, there is a blog from one of the ZABOU staff who washes RESOLUTE. How to wash them is written in it. →http://shop.zabou.org/?pid=38939363

Q. Those who worry about Tatami Jiwa of jeans, wrinkles that can be when you fold clothes…

A.. Some people worry about it, others don’t. If you worry about it, you turn them inside out while washing the jeans for the first time. After that, turn the jeans right-side out and iron them. Then the jeans will be clean. Also after turning right side out, sometimes lint will stick. If you peel them off, the jeans will come a good fit.

Q. Why are the seams of both side of the jeans wavy?

A.. I'll tell you about the conversation I had with Mr. Hayashi. “Denim fabric is the type of woven fabric, which is called “Twill”. The weft threads pass over one or more warp threads. The area where those threads cross looks like a dot, and the dots lie in a row create diagonal pattern. This characteristic pattern is called “twill”. Twill goes up left to right is right-hand twill, and right to left is left-hand twill. RESOLUTE denim fabric is right-hand twill. This is why it gets twisted from left to right.” Incidentally, cloth of RESOLUTE is right twill. Generally, it is natural for fabric to be twisted in the direction of twill. So you can enjoy RESOLUTE without worrying about it.

Q. Is it possible to exchange denim size and to return RESOLUTE?

A.. Yes. First about exchanging it, denim size of some people bought were big and some were small after they wore it. Then merchandise can be exchanged. In that case, you must return it within 5 days. In returning it, you'll need to pay for shipping fees. And about returning it, there are some conditions. For more information, please see the shopping guide of ZABOU webshop. If you don't know it, please feel free to send an email.

Q. How long will it take to order RESOLUTE?

A.. In the case of denim sizes being in stock at the manufacturer, they'll arrive at ZABOU on the next day of the day you ordered. Please allow up to 2〜3 days for delivery. But if the day you ordered is holiday (Weekend is holiday) and there is not stock at the manufacturer, delivery will be late. Then we will put stock information on ZABOU webshop.
