CL's Advice: I am usually a 38 in mfsc jackets and I am a 38 in the CAMPUS, with room for a lightweight shirt underneath. Please refer to sizing chart to determine which size works for you.
Because of its weight on the light side for a leather jacket, I wanted a slim and quite snug fit, reminiscent of the original 1930’s silhouettes. This leather jacket is easily wearable during California summer evenings, with a light shirt or T-shirt. Besides the easy blue jeans/Ts, I like the more elegant white shirt/tie look with it as well.
We recommend you leave you Campus as-is and just wear it. Treat with care when necessary. Use appropriate products for leather garments and please be aware that almost anything applied to light colored leather will alter its color.
Seek the help of a professional leather cleaner should staining occur that you cannot live with.
Note: Because of its original light natural color that will darken over time, it is prone to get soiled, water marked etc… This is part of the tough life of a leather jacket, your second skin.
The CAMPUS is a Mister Freedom® interpretation of traditional 1930’s ‘Cossack’-type jackets.
This natural veg-tanned CAMPUS Jacket have received a special outdoor treatment over several months, bathing under our lovely California sunshine and conditioned with ample doses of patience and elbow grease!
Please note that we just wanted to kick-start the process of a natural patina, not ‘distress’ the jacket or mimic a vintage patina. The select few CAMPUS jackets “Sunshine” edition definitely remain a DIY project for the future owner, they have 100% life left in them, as they have not been weakened by industrial “vintage” distressing.
DISCLAIMER: Your Campus Jacket may feature the authentic ranch “branding iron” (scar) mark typical of livestock raised outdoors. Each hide we select features its own single original ranch branding, more or less visible/well-defined. When both the yield of a hide and the ranch brand position permit it, our factory cutters have been instructed to include the original mark usually on one of the shoulder yoke panels. Not all of our leather jackets feature a branding iron mark, but those that do are much sought-after by our customers for their uniqueness.
This MF® garment is designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®.
