Please refer to sizing chart to determine which size works for you.
CL's Advice: I wear a comfortable 38 in this coat, with room for a thick shirt or wool sweater underneath. In general, go with your usual size in mfsc jackets. We have taken the measurements to the best of our abilities. Refer to our sizing chart and remember that measurements are from the outside of the fabric.
NOTE: Treat your zipper as you would a vintage one, rub wax to lubricate at times, and use common sense rather that brute force to zip and unzip, making sure tabs line-up when zipping.
The Mister Freedom® Mulholland Master‘s pattern borrows heavily from vintage UK apparel, but also from vintage US military gear such as 1940’s paratrooper outfits and BU. Aero US Navy flight jackets. It combines old school European moto style with US mil-specs fabric and hardware, keeping the 1960’s vibe while giving it a contemporary fit.
Our Mulholland Master is a versatile coat. Although not water-repellent, unless properly treated with some kind of water-proofing wax the jacket is quite suitable for diverse outdoor activities, spanning from sunny motorcycle rides to stylish city strolls.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
