CL's Advice: According to your fit preference these can be worn fitted or loose. Although usually a Medium in MF® shirts, I opted to size down and wear a small in the MF® tricot marin, same as the Stanley and Skivvy.
Low-maintenance, just throw your tricot marin in the washer/dryer, cold or hot water, delicate cycle.
Here is our iteration of the classic Tricot Marin featuring an 18 striped chest band. A reference to authentic French Marine Nationale jerseys.
We are using a col bateau (boat neck), a collar pattern specified in the original French regulation code of 1858, insisting with our manufacturer for the curve of the collar stitching, a technical challenge for the skilled machine operator.
Our 1/4 sleeves, shorter than the government issued shirts are a nod to the common practice of chopping up the sleeves of your jersey for comfort in tropical deployments.
Today, the famous stripes are mostly associated with France, summertime, fun-in-the-sun, sea-side resorts, yacht clubs, freshwater sailing, fishing, bouillabaisse, beach umbrellas… and fierce menswear fashion courtesy of Mister Freedom®.
This MF® garment is designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.
