I am usually a 38/medium and wear a 38 “Blouson El Americano”.
True to size but refer to chart for rinsed/hang dry measurements.
Do not use hot water or machine dryer as this might result in excessive shrinkage and color loss.
All fabrics will shrink to approximately the same tagged size after an original cold soak and hang dry.
The reason for the original cold soak/dry is purely aesthetic. I like the natural torque/twisting of the fabric that gets rid of that fresh-off-the-shelf look.
For the Indigo corduroy “Blouson El Americano”, some crocking is to be expected when pairing with light colored garments. Indigo ‘stains’ from rubbing wash off eventually.
As always the ‘Blouson El Americano’ is not an exact replica of an existing jacket, but rather a new garment a la MF®. The pattern combines details of several short-type vintage jackets, 1920’s-30’s suede leather jackets and casual western coats.
Our blouson features details like low positioned chest pockets typical of 1920’s-30’s, flared shaped cuffs inspired by a 1800's suede ‘bolero’ jacket and the rounded collar of A-1 type coats.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
