News from Los Angeles. Mister Freedom just released this Californian made Cotton Sack Coat that is perfect for the summer. It’s made in a small production batch from a limited yardage of vintage NOS (New Old Stock) fabrics from Mister Freedom’s archives. It’s a all single needle machine construction, 100% cotton thread, french seams (no dreadful overlock), and selvage button facing panel.
I’ve been waiting for this particular pair of jeans for a long time. Ever since I first saw them at the Mister Freedom website I’ve somehow been wanting a pair of my own, and now I finally have it. At first I thought they were a bit too much of it all with the big hand painted leather patch, the huge back pockets, and the high waisted 50s silhouette. But slowing I was drawn by all the classic details that I now value so much. Let me give you a little tour of this pair of truly authentically made in the U.S. of A. “new classic” jeans made with an unmatched eye for the detail, material, and quality.
Mister Freedom just got back from Tokyo and he brought this little swatch board with fabric samples for the FW12 collection. Some of it is exclusively milled in Japan for MFSC, some NOS American denim, some recycled textiles. Mister Freedom never takes the easy way, cuts corners or presents trend following collections. The collection will be released in the US in September 2012. We’re really looking forward to seeing what Mr. Loiron is going to do what that denim.
Mister Freedom is one of the most authentic denim brands out there on the Californian fashion prairie. Nothing is left to chance and every detail has its merits. The clothes are often used in film productions, but it can certainly also capture the attention of a denim hunter. This article is about little about the history of the brand and the last pieces in the “American Sportswear” collection.
