“Do the Hustle, Do the Ska, Do the Continental!”

Mister Freedom® Continental Sportcoat, Vest and Trousers
NOS Cacao Chambray, NOS Indigo Cross Hatch Twill
mfsc Sportsman Fall 2016
Made in USA

Immediately following the release of the limited edition Continental “Player” three-piece leisure suit, here is more Continental goodness from our Made in USA Mister Freedom® Sportsman catalog this Fall 2016.
To show the Continental’s versatility, and for elegant mix ‘n match options, we took the Continental from doing the Hustle in Las Vegas to doing the Ska in Kingston. Our original suiting patterns get a late 50’s – early 60’s textile treatment this time. The result is old school yet timeless, you get the flavor.
Style tip: To amuse the children, compliment the Continental with a hat that’s too small and a walking stick. Endless laughter and tears of joy guaranteed.

The Mister Freedom® Continental is versatile.

Back to the dancehall.
To enhance your ability to shake-a-tush rock steady-style, we are bringing on two handsome fabrics recently dug out. These vintage New Old Stock textiles are another lucky score, courtesy of our MF® team of relentless savvy treasure hunters.
So, besides the snazzy “Player” denim, the new fabric options for our Fall 2016 Continental triad are:

A) Cacao Chambray (brown warp & white weft), 100% cotton plain weave fabric, about 9 Oz., milled in Italy.
Only the Continental Trousers and Vest are released in Cacao Chambray.
B) Indigo Cross Hatch Twill (dark indigo warp and black melange weft), 100% cotton twill, about 11 Oz., milled in EU.
Only the Continental Sportcoat is released in Indigo Cross Hatch Twill.

The Continental Sportcoat, Vest and Trousers are designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in California, USA, by Mister Freedom® in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.

SIZING/FIT:

This explains how we size our garments.
The Continental Sportcoat, Vest and trousers come raw/unwashed. We recommend the usual initial 30mn cold soak/occasional hand agitation/spin dry/hang dry process. The tagged size reflects the size of the garment after going through this process. The subtle variation of shrinkage between body fabric/lining fabric/cotton thread will result in puckering and roping, slightly altering the fit and drape.

I personally opted for a Size 38 in the Continental sportcoat and vest, and Waist 32 trousers. These are my usual sizes in mfsc garments.

Trousers sizing: The Continental Trousers are true to size. If you are a measured-waist 32 inches, you are a stamped W32 in the Continental Trouser. Do not size down on these. Please note that the Continental Trousers pattern might not be a good option for all body types. Proportion-wise, those with very muscular legs will probably look better in our regular Sportsman Chino models.

Trousers hemming: After the initial soak/hang dry process, we recommend settling down on the final length of the bottom hem after gently wearing the trousers around the house a bit. The cotton fabric tends to naturally bunch/wrinkle and pull the leg up slightly. Letting this specific fabric react to your own body for an hour or so will allow you to decide on a proper classic leg break that works for you.

Please refer to sizing chart for approximate raw/soaked measurements. Soaked = 30mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry.
Full wash cycle and heat dryer are not recommended.

CHART

CARE:
Hand wash or machine wash unbuttoned on delicate, cold water with minimal environmentally friendly detergent. Line dry.
NOTE: Full washing cycle and machine dry might result in excessive shrinkage, color fading, marbling or damage, to be experimented with care and at owner’s risk.

NOTE on the INDIGO sportcoat: hand wash separately as indigo croaking is expected. Indigo color may rub on light color garments.
