CL's Advice: I wear from waist 30 or 32 in mfsc pants and I opted for a 32 in these.
Hand wash or machine wash on delicate, cold water, minimal eco-friendly detergent. Turn inside-out. Line dry only.
This fabric will develop attractive patina overtime, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear and laundering choices.
The style of these El Americano Trousers are inspired by 1920’s-30’s type gentlemen slacks from the olden days when a man’s waist rose above the hip bones.
This cotton linen blend canvas is milled and dyed exclusively for us in Japan, inspired by a vintage Swiss Military bag from the MF® Archive, creating a fabric with a random pattern resulting in a mix of a covert (salt and pepper) and striped textile.
For inspiration we played with period elements like decorative pocket arcuates, adjustable side straps, and curved welted rear pockets.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
