The Mister Freedom® Ranchero Shirt comes raw/unwashed, and will shrink to tagged size. Follow the usual recommended initial method before wearing: cold soak for 30mn, spin dry and line dry. Please refer to sizing chart to determine which size works for you.
CL's Advice: This is not a tight fitting shirt. Wear a medium if you are a medium in mfsc though.
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.
We mixed a bit of early work shirts, Native American ‘traditional’ tunics, Old West shirting, European fancy shirts, stirred it all up, and dipped it in the MF® salsa to create the Ranchero Shirt.
The ‘cut away’ collar pattern was inspired by late 1800’s European homemade farmer blouses & early Mexican and Mestizos tops.
For this version of the Ranchero we created a crispy 100% cotton selvedge popeline, indigo dyed to our specific hue, with a discharge and a ‘madder’ red tiny print inspired by several vintage swatches from our archives.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
