Part of what makes Mister Freedom so very special is Christophe’s stubborn refusal to be literalist when it comes to the American garment canon. What we have here is a third type denim jacket - aka the trucker jacket - but not really. Unlike many other spins on this archetype, no hand pockets were added; however the fit was tweaked to become more cowboy-like, slimmer and leaner throughout. The chest pockets were given a bit more of an aggressive angle, and button tabs can further adjust the fit from the back.
Inspired by vintage corduroy sportswear, these are made from a 14-wale (narrow width) Japanese corduroy, woven from a cotton/poly blend. This soft corduroy is rinsed once to account for initial shrinkage and stiffness, and is a perfect medium weight that feels good almost all year long. As a bonus, this corduroy is indigo-dyed, and will fade over time with wear and washing.
The details are all there - tonal “M” stitching on the pockets, custom copper buttons, and original MF woven labels. The side tabs for cinching the waist stuck around from the original, and 100% cotton thread used to chainstitch the garment together.
True to size. Minimal shrink with a cold wash and hang dry.
