  • STORY

     

    We scored a very nice lot of 1940′s-50′s New Old Stock (NOS) work-wear fabrics in France, thanks to a dear friend, Monsieur Jérome Girard, ze treasure hunter from Le Zouave
    Speaking of vintage hunters friends, Arnaud Bauville from “French CanCan” and Damien from “Le Magasin” are great sources for European vintage. After their long ship voyage across the Atlantic, we decided to make some work trousers with these fabrics, inspired -but of course- by French work wear, à la façon Mister Freedom
    ®.

     

    The fabric stock came from a now defunct French teinturerie (dye house) from Amiens. Those rolls were left over and never made it to production. They were intended to be used for typical work jackets and pants to supply local farmers, construction workers, railroad crews, vignerons… with sturdy outfits that would last for decades and get patched up along the way.

    Concealed inside the rolls of fabric were the original paper flashers and tags that were supposed to be attached to the finished garments. In this lot, there were mainly 6 different types of fabrics, ranging in color/texture/weight: Light blue to dark indigo, 100% cotton heavy moleskine to 100% cotton Bedford cord types (aka coutil)…

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN:

    Original MF® pattern, inspired by several work trousers, with a 1930′s~1950′s French work-wear influence.

    FABRIC:

    All fabrics are selvedge, tonal color ID:
    * F02: 100% cotton heavy moleskine, brushed back, “Bleu de Chauffe” color (typical dark navy French work-wear color). They are several batches from the F02 lot, varying slightly in weight and shades. We count them as one same fabric.

     

    Because of limited quantities of yardage, we were not able to make full size runs in all fabrics. We focused on ‘popular’ waist sizes, a few 30, 32, 34 and 36.

    As always, our shirt is not a replica, just an humble interpretation of a classic piece.
    Designed by Mister Freedom

  • CARE

    SIZING/WASHING:
    These pants should be pretty low maintenance, but we still recommend gentle cold wash and line dry. The ‘Sportsman Chinos’ are sold RAW (unwashed) and are not sanforized, they will shrink to tagged size.


    The waist sizing is pretty ‘generous’, but still get a 32 if that is your usual size. These are not tights, but man pants.



    To avoid random shrinkage issues, we decided to get all rolls sanforized before cut/sew, in order to keep the fit consistent across all fabrics. However, because of the different weights, the draping (= the way the fabric hangs) varies, and therefore the silhouettes.

    As always, “Le Révolutionnaire” are no skinny pants. They are similar in silhouette to our MF® Chinos.
