The Lot 64 by Mister Freedom are inspired by the details of 1950’s blue jeans, but dragged forward into the 1960’s with additional leg taper and a little less rise. The Mister Freedom attention to detail is present all the way through these, just like every pair. Featuring a whooping 12 different thread changes, these are a highly intensive pair of pants to make, utilizing a shocking variety of thread gauges and classic colors.
This batch is made from premium old stock Cone Mills selvedge, this particular fabric being made from organic cotton as well. Crispy and unsanforized new, the fabric is a slow fader, which will develop gentle and richly varied fades over time - with multiple different shades of indigo visible at all points of the process. This deadstock fabric was woven at the OG White Oak Cone Mills in the USA, and weighs in at about 12.75oz before washing.
The whole thing is sewn up in 100% cotton thread, which will wear down more quickly and authentically than synthetic-cored threads. This is by no means a fast process, but we like to compare denim with 100% cotton stitching to cars that need more regular oil changes.
Unsanforized (shrink to fit) - these run large and will shrink to the tag size after the first wash. Most shrinkage will occur during the initial soak - but be aware that the garment may continue to come in further during the first 3 washes. Over time, the fabric will stretch back out with wear (before shrinking again after a wash). Wash cold, hang to dry.
