The Mister Freedom® 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.
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.
The Mister Freedom® board shorts are based on a few classic pairs of late 60’s~70’s trunks. We added a fancy wax pocket, to holster your iPhone comes clambake time, and a concealed rear pocket.
After scoring a nice assortment of royal blue/sienna/coral selvedge canvas fabrics we decided to print one of the leg panels with an original Polynesia-inspired motif, for a “Skipper” version. As with the MF® Shop Tees, we are using water-based ink, so the graphic will gradually fade with wear and water sport activities.
Please note that, although adequate for swimming, these are vintage-style 100% cotton beach trunks, and will not dry as fast as modern polyester trunks or spandex speedos. We get it, but it worked for generations of swimmers, and sometimes it’s one for the money and two for the show.
This MF® garment is designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®.
