CL's Advice: The “ICE BLUE” Californian Lot.674 are true-to-size, with the usual “vanity sizing” standard in the industry.
A tagged W32 will most-likely be the right size for an individual with an approximate measured waist of +/- 32 inches, and with average body proportions. (Note that your natural waist is a bit bellow the belly button, not bellow the hips.)
The size that will work best for you depends on how you like your jeans to fit. I opted for a W31 in the Lot.674 “ICE BLUE”, which tends to be my size of choice for the MF® style of 1960’s slim jeans patterns, such as our popular Speedways, Malibu’s, Lot.74 and Lot.674 models.
Hand wash or machine wash on delicate, cold water, minimal eco-friendly detergent. Turn inside-out. Line dry only.
This fabric will develop attractive patina over time, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear and laundering choices.
Colored denim made its way to the forefront of fashion for casual wear suppliers and westernwear brands in the 1950’s. By the next decade, the catalogs of the “Big Three” were all spiced-up with a range of colorful models, alongside the traditional indigo blue utilitarian dungaree offerings.
Our 12 Oz. “ICE-BLU” denim twill, the Mister Freedom® interpretation of vintage colored denims features a sky blue indigo warp and ecru weft and solid white selvedge.
To match the Californian Lot.674s we gave our staple Ranch Blouse, the "ICE-BLU" treatment. For the Texas Tuxedo-shy, mixing-up either top or bottom with traditional darker denim might be the ticket. Either way, these two pieces are quite versatile for anyone with a sense of style anchored in old classics.
The Californian Lot. 674 combines the best of two worlds, the top block of the Lot. 64 with the tapered leg of the Lot. 74, for a pair of blue jeans with a mid-60’s twist. The Lot 674 is our slimmest jeans silhouette, and is as slim as we’ll go.
The “ICE-BLU” Californian LOT.674 are designed in California by Mister Freedom®, and manufactured in USA in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co., from denim fabric milled in Japan.
