  • STORY

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN:

    Original MFSC pattern, inspired by early French tailor-made suiting.

    FABRIC:

    INDIGO Métisse: 9.7 oz. indigo dyed twill blend, 70% cotton and 30% linen, un-sanforized. The yarn core is white, the indigo outer has a purple blue shade typical of early French indigo work clothes. Fades, bleeds and reacts to sun light… Milled in Japan in limited batch. This fabric is the same fabric the VESTE OUVRIER is made of, so it will fade to this with wear.

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

  • CARE

    SHRINKAGE/SIZING:

    The gilet comes RAW and unwashed, and will shrink and torque lightly with cold delicate wash/hang dry (about 1 to 2%). As you wouldn’t throw a suit in the washer, this gilet de ville, although washable, should be treated with TLC.

     

    DISCLAIMER:

    Will scratch car seats, sofas etc… The buckle is removable and you can switch to one that fits your needs (a “safer” metal buckle, used for the Japanese production, will be found in one of the pockets.)
