Mister Freedom® “McKARSTEN” Jacket-Trousers set evo, HBT denim.

Mister Freedom® “McKARSTEN” Jacket/Trousers set, HBT denim edition evo.
SS2019 mfsc SURPLUS catalog.
Made in Japan.

Quick update on my Mister Freedom® McKarsten set, HBT denim edition.

Initially released in 2019, both garment patterns were inspired by several vintage 1930s-40s denim workwear pieces from our archives, see original posts for the Jacket & Trousers for all design references.

After the wrap of Jailhouse Rock, my HBT combo didn’t get equal wear time,  and the jacket was left on the roof at some point, to experiment with natural sun-bleaching.
Nice to see the HBT denim fabric (indigo-dyed warp yarns x natural color weft yarns) come to life and the indigo pop out after several months under the California sun.

Raw/dry versions of theMcKarsten Jacket and Trousers are available from www.misterfreedom.com, our Los Angeles brick & mortar store, and fine retailers around the World.

Mister Freedom® Mess of Blues.

Because we don’t offer factory-distressed garments, for environmental reasons, ethical concerns and plain common sense, we often get asked “How soon can I expect a worn-in patina?”…
There is no easy answer besides “Just wear and find out”. Frequency of wear, type of activities, fit, … all play a major role in how denim garments evolve and fade, a role often more decisive than the specific fabric itself. Our denim twills and indigo canvases will fade overtime. Just enjoy the journey and don’t watch the water boil.

We have never been about fast fashion, and the Mister Freedom® denim catalog is not about instant gratification. But we believe there is an instant reward in knowing you are investing in ethically-made garments.
