Mister Freedom® CONTINENTAL SPORTCOAT & “SPORTSMAN CHINOS” two-piece suit, cotton HBT  jacquard edition
mfsc SS2024 Sportsman Catalog
Made in USA

For this edition of the Mister Freedom® Continental suit, we combined two of our popular classic patterns, the Continental Sportcoat and Sportsman Chinos, both staples of our made-in-USA Sportsman catalog.

The Sportsman Chinos and Continental Trousers feature similar design specifics, but differ fit-wise. While the top block is comparable on both models, the Sportsman Chinos are cut with a more generous 40s/50s-style leg, compared to the Continental Trousers slimmer leg profile. The choice is a matter of one’s personal style preferences and body type, and we opted for the Chinos pattern to better match the vibe of our AREA 7161 story.

The unstructured blazer style of the MF® Continental Sportcoat was initially inspired by a vintage French 1950s cotton twill work coat, jazzed-up by our Design Dept sometime in 2016, making recurring appearances every season since. Its no-padding construction and elegant-yet-casual attitude are reminiscent of vintage 1930s-50s tropical Palm Beach type suits.

The Mister Freedom® Continental series can be worn as matching sets, can be tastefully mismatched when texture/color/weight of the fabrics agree, or paired with whatever one is comfortable with. Remember, everyone has a soft spot for an honest man in a good suit! The only commitment of our Continentals is to be stylish, unpretentious, flexible, travel-friendly (i.e. low-maintenance), and — importantly — USA-made.
The Sportcoat, Trousers and Chinos are available in a range of classic NOS and Japan-milled fabric options
.

The CONTINENTAL Sportcoat and SPORTSMAN Chinos, HBT Jacquard edition, are designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.

SIZING/FIT:
This
explains how we size and measure our garments.
The MF® CONTINENTAL Sportcoat and SPORTSMAN Chinos both come raw/unwashed. These garments are cut so that the measurements match the labeling AFTER an initial cold soak/line dry.
We recommend the usual protocol before wearing:

  • Cold soak in a tub for about 30-40mn, with occasional hand agitation.
  • Line dry, no heat dryer.

Jacket and pants are considered true-to size. Subtle puckering and roping of the material/stitching will result from the rinsing process, slightly altering the fit and drape, and will give the HBT fabric plenty “life” and character.
Please refer to sizing chart for post cold soak measurements.
At 5’7 and ~145 lbs, I opted for a comfortable size 38 Sportcoat and relaxed silhouette W30 in the Chinos.

Reach out to sales@misterfreedom.com to tune-in sizing if needed.

Trousers hemming: After the initial soak/line-dry process, we recommend settling down on the final length after briefly wearing the pants (roll-cuffed) around the house a bit. Let the fabric crease and stretch, then decide on a proper classic leg break that works for you, pin up the hem, and proceed with cropping/hemming at your local tailor.
I went with a DIY blind (hand) stitch 1¼ inch hem.
For a classic period vibe, we recommend hemming and not “roll-up” cuffing.

CARE:
Machine wash on DELICATE, cold water, eco-friendly mild detergent. Line dry. To avoid color transfer, wash with similar colors, as the indigo HBT will initially bleed.
Do not use the washer’s heavy-duty cycle. Heat dryer is also not recommended and may result in excessive and irreversible shrinkage.
