Never a literalist, Christophe Loiron makes better-than-repro garments. Case-in-point: this Type 2 could easily just have been a straight-up copy. Instead, we get the round collar of an A-1, angled front pockets, arrowhead dart stitching, and a great fit. To tweak the shape, it features a two prong adjustable buckle back, and deep rear pleats that make movement easy.
The Bison Ranch Blouse is made from a custom veg tanned full grain cowhide, developed exclusively for Mister Freedom. This leather averages between 2 & 3oz, and features a brown tea-core finish, meaning the dye is not fully struck through the hides, sitting only on the surface of the leather. Over time, the brown die will begin to wear off in certain areas, around the seams, and anywhere that gets scuffed or experiences abrasion.
The cut is exceptional, with a relaxed (but not roomy or wide) chest and ever-so-slightly cropped body length that looks great with jeans. The shoulders are cut wide, so as to drop a bit (which is also why the sleeves appear to measure short) and allow greater ease of motion. Inside, the jacket is completely unlined, with clean, fully-finished seams throughout.
