  • STORY

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN:

    An original mfsc pattern, inspired by 1920′s-30′s short-type vintage jackets.

    FABRIC:

    Indigo Corduroy: Mid wale 100% cotton corduroy. 14.5 Oz. Indigo vat dyed. Milled and dyed in Japan.

     

    For the Indigo corduroy “Blouson El Americano”, some crocking is to be expected when pairing with light colored garments. Indigo ‘stains’ from rubbing wash off eventually.

    Designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in small ethically run factories in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.

  • SIZING/ FIT

    CLICK TO ENLARGE

    I am usually a 38/medium and wear a 38 “Blouson El Americano”.
    True to size but refer to chart for rinsed/hang dry measurements.

    Do not use hot water or machine dryer as this might result in excessive shrinkage and color loss.

  • CARE

    SIZING/SHRINKAGE:

     

    All fabrics will shrink to approximately the same tagged size after an original cold soak and hang dry.
    The reason for the original cold soak/dry is purely aesthetic. I like the natural torque/twisting of the fabric that gets rid of that fresh-off-the-shelf look.

     

    As a matter of personal preferences, we tend to not make our clothes look vintage by distressing them artificially with harsh chemicals/sanding treatments from industrial wash houses. We instead use old tricks and details to make our clothes look like they’ve been around for some time. To some, these “Blouson El Americano” look like they are off a dusty bygone menswear store shelf… In days of disposable fashion, we don’t think that is a bad thing either.
