  • STORY

    Inspired by early European shirting, here is a fine lightweight moleskin pull-over shirt for Fall, which wraps up our French escapade this season.


    The name Hirondelle (swallow) is a reference to a collar shape typical of 1930′s French shirting. Longer and pointier than its American ‘wing tip’ collar counterpart.


    It also refers to the bird often seen tattooed on the French Apaches skins. The Hirondelle symbolized freedom and escape.

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN:

    All original MFSC pattern and fit. Pull-over style.

    FABRIC:
    CREAM moleskin  Lightweight 100% cotton moleskin, 5 oz., the French choice of work-wear and outdoor washable fabric since the 1800′s. Moleskin is a tightly woven twill, with a napped surface. The close weave makes this fabric almost windproof, warm, insulating and very durable. It performs much better than denim does, but is very expensive to mill. Our 100% cotton moleskin is milled in Japan, to the specs of a 1900's swatch from our archives.

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

  • CARE

    SHRINKAGE/SIZING:

    All three options come RAW/unwashed. 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.
