We recommend an initial cold rinse and line dry. The vests fit true to size. I am a 38 and wear a 38 in the Faro vest.
Both fabric options come raw/unwashed.
Just as you wouldn’t boil a fancy suit, please treat with care or take to your environmentally friendly dry cleaner for future cleaning.
The pattern for our waistcoat is inspired by a vintage French silk velvet vest from the 1800’s. In usual MF® fashion we combined several elements of early vest patterns, outer and inner panels and piecing to create the Faro.
According to your preferences the Faro Waistcoat can easily be paired with the Faro Sack Coat and mismatched trousers, but we will leave that up to you.
Designed in California by Mister Freedom® and crafted as a one-time limited batch by Sugar Cane Co in Japan.
