CL's Advice: I opted for a MEDIUM, my usual size in MFSC shirting. The fit is quite trim, well-balanced between with enough room to pull the shirt on and off without too much struggle, and a flattering a slim silhouette.
Hand wash or machine wash on delicate, cold water, minimal eco-friendly detergent. Turn inside-out to avoid marbling of the fabric. Line dry only.
This fabric will develop attractive patina overtime, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear and laundering choices.
For this mouthful of a shirt, we basically combined two classic vintage work shirt patterns lifted-off two specimen of the MF® archives.
Design-wise, we simply merged one rare and plain 1930’s pull-over chin-strapped no-name work chambray, with the tricked-out “Double-Panel” pattern of a vintage 1940’s Sturdy Oak work chambray.
For the fabric of the ‘Secoya”, another stroll down Memory Lane brought us to our earliest collaboration with Sugar Cane Co: the 2008 mfsc “Naval Clothing Tailor” collection. We decided to have another fresh batch of “NCT selvedge chambray” milled in Japan, to the exact same specs as the original.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
