The Story Behind The First Volcom Stretch Jeans Inspired By Dustin Dollin
Dustin Dollin used to wear ladies jeans. Wait. What? Okay, that's not too hard to believe, it is Dollin we're talking about. See back in the early 2000's guys who liked a slim fitting pair of jeans had a hard time finding them, never mind finding a pair with some stretch to make them actually comfortable. Options were super limited and if they could be found they were usually expensive luxury menswear. Guys like Dustin, and there weren't a lot of them at the time... mostly musicians, had to resort to wearing women's jeans. Recounting the experience to Remy Stratton, Volcom's SVP of Skate & Snow, and former Volcom Skate Team manager, Dustin recalled when he finally came across a pair of tight fitting men's stretch jeans and could ditch the ladies jeans he had been wearing. The discovery was so rare he found himself hoarding them. "I remember finding the first stretch denim at the Melbourne market, some made-in-China denim from an Australian brand called Workland jeans, and I used to go every weekend and buy all the size 30's. I think you once asked me why I never wore Volcom jeans and I replied because these are tight and stretchy." Going back and watching Dustin's part in Chichagof (2004), you'll notice that he wears two different styles of jeans throughout his part. The looser fitting pair are Volcom jeans that Remy must have been able to wrangle him into occasionally, and the tighter pair are the ones he found at the market in Melbourne. Following the release of the film it was clear that the answer to how to get Dustin to wear Volcom jeans was to make him his own model. "Once Dustin gets something in his head, that's it, we obviously needed him wearing our jeans,"  said Remy, "and our design department quickly embraced his concept." With this began the collaboration with Volcom's denim designer, JJ Gonzales, on the first pair of Volcom jeans that would bear Dustin Dollin's name and be included in Volcom's fledging V.Co-Operative series. Launched in 2004, the V.Co-Operative series was birthed from the skate team, with initial collaborations with Geoff Rowley and Mark Appleyard, who worked closely with the Volcom design team to help build their perfect pair of jeans. Joining the V.Co-Opertative program shortly after its launch, Dustin and the design team began work on creating a wholly unique style of jean that captured the essence of Dollin and was unlike either of the existing collaborations. "It was revolutionary. Dustin's jean immediately filled a void,"  said JJ, "it was a forward fit with a functional fabric for the skate world." "It was right when a lot of skating changed to tight jeans,"  added Dustin. Armed with a few pairs of Dustin's old women's jeans as well as the ones he found at the Melbourne market, JJ and the design team went to work adapting the fit for a man's body. Describing the design and fabric challenge, JJ said, "the fact that they were women's jeans that he was wearing, creating his fit was all new as women's jeans have a shorter rise and are proportionately different," and added that at the time, "stretch denim was more of a women's market, so fabrics were lighter in weight and not made to withstand the wide range movements and heavy slams,"  that someone like Dustin sustains when he skates. Sourcing the right fabric that could wear close to the body but was flexible enough that you could still skate and take slams in them would be the key to the success of the jeans. Enter Lycra®. Developed in 1959, the revolutionary material was not introduced into denim jeans until 20 years later in 1979 when the first women's stretch jean was made using an elasticized Lycra® fiber cotton blend. For the next 25 some-odd years stretch remained mostly a feature of women's jeans only. Typically thought of for its comfort factor, and marketed that way to women purchasing stretch jeans. Lyrca® was also fundamental in the advancement of performance sportswear throughout the 90's with its ability to offer apparel a greater freedom of movement. It was here at the intersection of denim, performance sportswear and Dustin Dollin that a whole new product sub-category, the performance stretch jean, revealed itself to the designers at Volcom. "I can honestly reflect now and say that Dustin's signature jean was the catalyst to what the mindset of Volcom Brand Jeans is today,"  says JJ. "It's combining fit, function, durability and quality in an innovative way." So it was with release of his signature Volcom V.Co-Operative jean in the summer of 2005, that Dustin Dollin and Volcom blessed the skate world with the first stretch denim jeans designed for skateboarding. Ahead of our time then, Volcom today is still at the forefront of denim design, utilizing technical fiber blends and finishes to create performance jeans that are designed for skateboarding. Explore the latest stretch denim innovations with the release of Volcom Stone Made jeans that incorporate groundbreaking superior stretch, anti-microbial, durability and water resistant properties that have yielded some of the most profound products in the market today.
Volcom at Visions Festival | London, England
This past Saturday Dustin Dollin, Ben Raemers, Harry Lintell, Eniz Fazliov and Lois Pendlebury spent some time in the UK at Visions Festival – a Real Life Happening spread across several venues in Hackney, London. Following on from two critically acclaimed and sold out years, the festival hosted a whole range of happenings from the East London Print Makers screening onto our shirts to the Fat White Family band, The Hinds and more playing killer shows in this third year sold out event making the whole thing a blast from start to finish. Volcom also took along our two prize winners who hung out with the crew for the day after winning Volcom Brand Jeans, travel, hotels, guest list tickets and plenty of beers. Matthew Rutherford -­‐ Prize Winner: “Festival tickets, travel, hotel, jeans. I’ve been looking forward to the bands, the food and the beer. You can’t beat this can you, really?" The Fat White Family smashed through a killer set with their frontman Lias getting well amongst it all with the crowd. Our Finnish connection, Eniz Fazliov enjoying the Visions outdoor space… …With our Aussie connection Dustin. The Visions blimp flew high and mighty all day above the festival. Our contest winners Matt Rutherford and Joe Seager sank a few beers with Dustin and lurked heavily with us throughout the festival. Good times! Lois Pendlebury and Harry Lintell. A couple of teeth short. Dustin sees downtime, Lois sees playtime. No caption required Our pal and PR master, Leanne trying to work out what trouble Harry’s hijinks will land them in next. The party crew outside the Oval Space venue. Low key Raemers. Quietly fuelling the fire… Theres something out there. Claw Marks really, really know how to put on a show. Hanging from the rafters. Literally. London Fields in between shows. Dustin & Eniz take five… Always on. Dustin kept everyone entertained – especially our two new mates. The face of a man with a plan REDDOS! Stretching before hitting the next show. That’s some serious knowledge! Ben Raemers. Taxi service in full swing.  
Volcom Bastille Days Opening
Cliquez ici pour la version Française On Wednesday July 1st, Volcom opened its skate obstacle, which will remain all summer long on the Esplanade du Port de l’Arsenal, Place de La Bastille in Paris. The afternoon started with the official opening by the Paris city council, with the presence of three Mayors of the surrounding districts, and then the spot got invaded by skateboarders, never minding the high temperatures (Europe is sweating under a record heat wave). Tons of goodies were given away at our DIY stations (tee shirt screening, hat customising and button making…) and in no time, everyone was hyped to watch the action unfold. Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau and Romain Covolan from the Volcom skate team put down a demo matching the heat! At the end of the demo the list of ABD’s of the spot got quite filled up with notably a switch fs 360 and a switch flip from Axel over the trash bin, some trademark crails from David, an alley oop fs 270 heelflip from Eniz and a a double flip by Victor… Right after this some of Paris big dogs entered into the mix during a “Trick 4 Trick” session organised by Electric, where the skaters had to land the same tricks that Electric team skaters David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs and Sam Partaix were doing for cash. The day ended with music and drinks, but unfortunately without the planned live concert due to some tech problems, and the skateboarders took over the spot for a first of a long series of evening sessions. A big thank you to the city council of Paris for bringing this to skateboarding in Paris, Sterling Projects for such a rad design and finishing details, to Cosanostra skatepark, to Carlsberg for the refreshments, Snowbeach, Urban Surfers, Citadium, Hawaii Surf, Guillaume Perimony for the clip and Jelle Keppens for the photos. See you on Sunday July12th, starting at 19h for an instalment of photos from De Paris yearbook, music, refreshments and the screening of the video “Deuxième Vague”-  Entry is free.

L’après-midi commença par l’ouverture officielle par la Mairie de Paris, avec la présence des trois maires des arrondissements voisins. Ensuite le spot a été pris d’assaut par tous les skateboarders malgré la temperature caniculaire. Des tonnes de goodies ont été donnés suite à des sessions Do It Yourself (impression de tee shirts, customisation de casquettes, fabrication de badges…), et peu après, le public a profité d’une demo de skate du team Volcom avec Dustin Dollin, David Gonzalez, Eniz Fazliov, Axel Cruysberghs, Victor Pellegrin, Vincent Coupeau et Romain Covolan qui ont tout donné. A la fin de la démo, la liste des ABD du spot fut plutôt bien remplie, avec notamment un switch fs 360 et un switch flip d’Axel au dessus de la poubelle, des crails magnifiques de David, un alley oop fs 270 heelflip d’Eniz ou encore un double flip de Victor… Juste après ça, quelques uns des meilleurs skaters de Paris entrèrent en jeu pour une session “Trick 4 Trick” organisée par Electric, durant laquelle les skateurs devaient replaquer les mêmes figures que les membres du team Electric David Gonzalez, Axel Cruysberghs et Sam Partaix avec 500€ en cash à la clé. La journée s’est terminée en musique et avec quelques boissons fraiches, malheureusement sans le concert qui était prévu, en raison de quelques problèmes techniques. Les skateurs ont pris possession du spot pour une première session nocturne en présence de presque tout le gratin de la scène skate Parisienne. Un énorme merci à la mairie de Paris pour avoir permis l’installation de cette structure, Sterling Projects pour un tel design et de supers finitions, à Cosanostra skatepark, à Carlsberg pour les rafraichissements, à Snowbeach, à Urban Surfers, à Citadium, à Hawaii Surf, à Guillaume Perimony pour le clip vidéo et à Jelle Keppens pour les photos. On espère vous retrouver le dimanche 12 juillet à partir de 19h pour une exposition photos du yearbook De Paris, de la musique, des rafraichissements et la diffusion en plein air de la vidéo Deuxième Vague.
