ADVISOR Jacket - ERDL Camo

$380

The pattern of the MF® ADVISOR Jacket was adapted from a vintage local-made mid 60s windbreaker, cut from a late 60s US Army ERDL poncho liner.

As always, we are not going for a replica, so the design of the MF® “ADVISOR” is not about regulation field uniforms or authentic US Gov-issued period gear. Instead, we played around with the concept of a fictitious in-country tailor-made jacket that one could strut on R&R.

PATTERN: Original MFSC pattern, inspired by a 1960s zipper jacket, and the US military tradition of local-made custom garments.

FABRIC:
Vintage Mil-Specs 100% cotton rip-stop fabric, 6.8 Oz, Vietnam era ERDL Lowland camo pattern.

DETAILS:
* Classic 1960s windbreaker stand collar zip jacket style.
* Raglan sleeve pattern.
* Unlined, all clean seams (no overlock.)
* 50s/60s-style “Universal” metal zipper with cotton tape, bell-shaped pull.
* Rear panel elastic waistband cinch.
* Two concealed chest pockets cut from vintage NOS “emergency orange/signal yellow” rip-stop, for iPhone or sunglasses.
* Classic USN-style “fouled anchor” CPO plastic buttons on cuffs/collar.
* Original mfsc “FROGSVILLE” woven rayon label.
* Made in Japan.

The MF® ADVISOR Jacket comes unwashed and is cut so that the measurements match the labeling AFTER an initial cold soak/line dry. We recommend this usual protocol before wear:

  • Turn garment inside-out. Cold soak for about 30-40mn with occasional hand agitation.
  • Washing machine spin dry.
  • Line dry. (No heat dryer)

CL's Advice: I opted for a 38 (Medium) for a comfortable fit (5.7’’ / approx. 150 lbs).

Compare measurements with an unlined jacket of similar style you own and that fits you well to dial-in the size that will work best for you, according to your silhouette preference and layering habits.

Launder when needed.

We recommend turning the jacket inside-out to avoid potential marbling of the fabric. 

Machine wash with cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry.

The pattern of the MF® ADVISOR Jacket was adapted from a vintage local-made mid 60s windbreaker, cut from a late 60s US Army ERDL poncho liner. We tweaked the pattern, details and fit to our liking, and opted for two distinct fabrics.

We added two concealed iPhone/sunglasses pockets on the zip placket, cut from a contrast “signal yellow/emergency orange” twill. 

The MF® ADVISOR Jacket is designed in California by Mister Freedom®, and manufactured in Japan in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.
