CL's Advice: I went for a Medium with the Chemise “MARINA”, with a trim but comfortable fit. A Small was personally out of the question with this garment, to avoid the cropped-top look.
For info, I usually opt for Small in Mister Freedom® knitwear – Stanleys and Skivvies, Tricot Marin, GI Henley – due to a subjective preference for old-school silhouettes rather than contemporary streetwear vibes.
Wash when necessary. Hand-wash or machine wash with cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry.
Consider the Chemise “MARINA” as a delicate garment, and do not launder with clothing containing sharp hardware (metal buttons, metal zippers, hooks) to avoid snagging the pique knit fabric and overall damage to the shirt.
The MF® Chemise “Marina” is our humble twist on the traditional “polo shirt” pattern, so called due to its initial association with the ancient sport of polo. It is in the popular 1950’s and 1960’s styles that we found inspiration for the Mister Freedom® Chemise “Marina”.
Our ribbed knit underarm expansion gusset is a familiar classic design detail lifted off vintage sportswear polos, but the choice of chest logo took a little longer to come-up with. We’d seen them all.
So, after days at the drawing board, we eventually settled on a maritime signal flag gimmick! Diagonal white cross on blue background is international naval code for Mike, the letter “M”. Red diamond on white background is Foxtrot, “F”.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
