MF® Ranger Shirt, NOS Cone Mills 7oz “Midnight” Indigo Twill, SS2023 Sportsman catalog, made in USA.


Mister Freedom® RANGER Shirt, Cone Mills “Midnight” Indigo Twill.
mfsc SS2023 Sportsman Catalog.
Made in USA.

One could say that we are quite fond of the RANGER Shirt pattern, since we have, at this point, cut it in about 150 different fabrics since the original 2015-2016 NOS Madras release.

This versatile and timeless pattern is a Mister Freedom® take on classic 1930s-40s workwear-type shirting, a straight forward vintage utilitarian style with the de rigueur chinstrap and side gussets, double box-pleat chest pockets and contrast white poplin button placket.

For this release, we opted for a snazzy “Midnight” indigo twill — indigo warp x black weft, wide loom — fancy New-Old-Stock yardage milled by the original Cone Mills White Oak plant, Greensboro, NC. This all-cotton 7 Oz. twill has a deep dark indigo color face, and will age gracefully with normal wear/wash cycles.

If the ‘Ranger’ name hints at rugged Park and Forest Rangers and the early days of Conservationism, our “Midnight” Ranger is as comfortable in the woods, at the office, on a date, around town, or at home.

The Mister Freedom® Ranger Shirt Cone Mills “Midnight” Indigo Twill is designed and made in California, CA in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co. Cut from NOS fabric milled in USA.

The Mister Freedom® Ranger Shirt “Midnight” Indigo comes RAW/unwashed. It is cut so that the measurements match the labeling after an initial cold soak/line dry. We recommend this usual protocol before wearing:
* Cold soak for about 30-40mn, with occasional hand agitation.
* Machine spin dry cycle, then line dry.

At 5.7’ ~145 lbs, I opted for a MEDIUM for a rather trim fit. Note that I tend to be a SMALL in most mfsc shirts lately.

Again, this Ranger Shirt “Midnight” Twill runs a bit small, some may consider sizing up, understanding that what will work best for you depends on your body type and how you like your clothes to fit.
Please refer to our sizing chart reflecting soaked measurements (= 30mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry.)

Machine wash on DELICATE, cold water, mild eco-friendly detergent. Hang dry.
Heat dryer may result in excessive/irreversible shrinkage.

Available from, our Los Angeles brick & mortar store, and fine retailers around the World.
