Mister Freedom® “Californian” blue jeans LOT.74, NOS wheat denim.
The Sportsman, Fall 2015, made in USA.
We’ve had requests… but we did it anyways. We’re adding another Californian to “The SPORTSMAN” catalog.
To the MF® blue jeans saga inaugurated by the Lot.54 in 2010, backed by the special ‘Goat Rope’ edition Lot.44 the following year, beefed-up by a herd of Lot.64‘s starting in 2013, revisited this Spring with the Lot.654… we are adding a chaser: the unbeeeeeliiiievable Californian Lot.74.
Tony might want to sit this one out, still, since this updated cut of our classic five pocket jeans has yet to feature that enviable 14-inch flare. But we’re working on it, Anthony.
So what’s the fuss about the Lot.74 you axe me?
Walks in Alain.
The Sportsman “Californian” LOT.74 wheat denim jeans are designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.
Inspired by traditional 1960′s-1970’s era blue jeans, traditional slim fit, straight leg from the knee down. The Lot.74 is our slimmest five-pocket jeans cut, and is as slim as we’ll go, with a silhouette similar to the Malibu’s and somewhat of a high rise by 2015 standards.

The wheat denim Californian LOT.74 comes UN-WASHED and cut so that the measurements match the labeling AFTER an original cold soak/line dry. This specific denim is sanforized, and a tagged W32 x L34 wheat Lot.74 Californian will measure an approximate 32” x 34” after the initial soak/dry process.
Which size works for you depends on your actual waist, and how you like your jeans to fit. I wear a tagged waist 32 in the Lot.74.
We recommend getting your usual waist size, although proper fit is a subjective matter and everyone has their own idea of what looks good.
As with all denim twill, shrinkage and stretching will occur for a while and will depend on the wearer’s body, activities and initial fit.
Please refer to sizing chart for approximate raw/soaked measurements. Soaked = 30mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry.
Wash your jeans when hygiene dictates and common sense prevails.
Machine wash with cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry. Please note that the debossed graphic on the leather patch will naturally ‘flatten out’ when soaked in water. As devastating as it is, this is normal.
DISCLAIMER: Some minor color transfer from the the leather patch and pocket bags to the wheat denim might occur after laundry. This will recede with subsequent washing cycles, as light-colored garments require frequent cleaning. Using hot water will increase chances of color transfer.
