  • STORY

    Elegant shirting is a large part of our MFSC Apaches collection, and without further ado, we introduce the chemise calico in two versions: An indigo blue Calico and a white Calico.

     

    Inspired by late 1800′s European cotton printed shirting fabrics and several vintage swatches from MF® Archives, we went back to early techniques of discharge printing to produce these textiles in Japan.

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN:

    All original MFSC pattern, inspired by early European shirting.

    FABRIC:

    All cotton fancy Broadcloth, 3.5 oz. Exclusively woven and printed in Japan for MFSC. Limited run.
    Indigo dyed base, discharge calico print.

    BUTTONS:

    Authentic French 1900′s-1930′s New Old Stock glass buttons, also referred to as boutons Briare, because of their regional origin (Finding them in France was a real wild goose chase…)

    Designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co under our MFSC® collaboration. Limited Edition.

  • SPECS

  • CARE

    SHRINKAGE/SIZING:

    Both fabric options are RAW and unwashed, and will shrink lightly with cold wash/hang dry. Hand wash with care (or very gentle wash cycle), cold water, dryer OK. Use no soap/detergent with the indigo métisse, and hand wash only when really needed, to maximize the beauty of natural fading.

     

    DISCLAIMER:

    To avoid confusion and surprises, all shirts are WASHED and hung dry (no dryer, to keep the light startchy crispy effect). So the initial shrinkage of the 100% cotton fabrics is taken care of. We didn’t pre-wash the fabrics before cut/sew to preserve the ropping/twisting cherished effects, but felt like -unlike denim items- a shirt gets washed often and should be low maintenance.
