The Mister Freedom® Mechanic's Utility Trousers comes raw/unwashed, and will shrink to tagged size. Follow the usual recommended initial method before wearing: cold soak for 30mn, spin dry and line dry. Please refer to sizing chart to determine which size works for you.
CL's Advice: If you are opting for the cold soak/line dry, I recommend sizing down on these. I am usually a 32 in msfc bottoms, but went for a size 30. I might hem them later, but decided to wear them with a fat cuff for a while.
The leg is still quite generous with a 30, and these are definitely not slim fitting,
Hand wash or machine wash on delicate, cold water, minimal eco-friendly detergent. Turn inside-out to avoid marbling of the fabric. Line dry only.
This fabric will develop attractive patina overtime, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear and laundering choices.
We have adapted the pattern and features from a pair of military work pants, originally issued to the US Air Force, for our Mechanic Utility Trousers.
We kept the recognizable long waist adjusting tabs and the four patch pockets adding the usual MF® flair, like USN-type chambray accents and corozzo wood buttons. We re-positioned the tool pocket along the inseam of the left leg, "sandwiching" it in the flat felled seam.
This obscure and dark selvedged denim-like twill is based on a small swatch of vintage indigo cavalry twill from the Mister Freedom® textile archives. Cavalry twill shares its origin with tricotine, a double twill the French came up with around 1886. After an initial cold soak, natural wear will bring out the indigo blue color over time.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
