“Skipper” Board Shorts.
NOS selvedge canvas.
Made in USA.

The Mister Freedom® Sportsman made-in-USA Board Shorts have had a few jolly iterations since their introduction in Spring 2014.
Originally released in NOS indigo twill and NOS Hickory Stripe Twill, they were also issued in a wide variety of craaaazy NOS vintage novelty-print fabrics, known as the Adventure Beach Trunks edition of 2015. A special Saigon Cowboy model in tiger stripes camo Tapdole Sparse Pattern hit China Beach nostalgics that same year… sorry ’bout that.

After scoring a nice assortment of royal blue/sienna/coral selvedge canvas fabrics from a dusty warehouse, we decided to go for a “Skipper” version, for dudes, hodads and barneys.
This one took a little time to complete as the cut/saw process had to be interrupted by a fun silkscreening session. The canvas fabric was originally solid and we decided to print one of the leg panel with an original Polynesia-inspired motif. 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.

The Skipper Board Shorts are designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®.
