Dear Friends,

Hope everyone is faring well under the circumstances, staying healthy, sane and positive. I won’t dwell on current events as your news sources are probably handling that daily, just hoping you are finding ways to navigate through these uncharted waters well, and safely.

We’ve kept on truckin’! Here are the fruits of our Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane (mfsc) collaboration this Fall 2020. The line-up this season consists of the following groupings, produced in Japan and USA (regrouped in the above photos by “stories” rather than Country of Origin, with some style crossovers.)

TRUCKSTOP” is a new capsule, drawing inspiration from the colorful world of the American independent trucker, with Mid-West style influences spanning 1950s to 1970s. Think Smokey & The Bandits, Convoy, Citizens Band Radio (CB), vintage Overdrive magazines, River Rat and the 1973 US trucker strike
Made in Japan, the line-up includes:
a) PIONEER Jacket:
* Midnight denim, selvedge 16 Oz. indigo warp x black weft.
* Wool plaid, 21 Oz.
b) DEPUTY Pants:
* Midnight denim, selvedge 16 Oz. indigo warp x black weft.
* NOS brushed Dobby stripe, brown.
c) DUDE RANCHER Shirt:

* Indigo denim, selvedge 7.25 Oz.
d) MAVERICK Jacket:
* “Malibu” denim, selvedge 12 Oz.
* “Ice-Blu” denim, selvedge 12 Oz.
* “Malibu” x “Ice-Blu” combo.

WATERFRONT SURPLUS” is an old mfsc favorite, a nautical grouping inspired by 1930’s US Navy and French Marine Nationale utility uniforms, local-made and custom-tailored dungarees, with the usual liberties we take with military-inspired classics. Made in Japan, this line-up includes:
a) PRIVATEER Roll-Neck:
* Cotton rib, indigo-dyed.
* Cotton rib, natural.
b) MF37 SNIPES Shirt:
Blue chambray, BR selvedge 5 Oz.
c) MF51 FIELD Shirt:
* Melton wool, 10 Oz., navy blue.
* Melton wool, 10 Oz., indigo-dyed.
d) NCT CHINOS:“Okinawa” selvedge denim, 12 Oz.

“SURPLUS” is our on-going catalog of original classics and mfsc re-issues. Made in Japan, FW2020 additions include:
a) ROAMER Car Coat:
Heavy wide-wale corduroy, old black, 14 Oz. (w/ Troy blanket lining.)
b) SECOYA Shirt:
Heavy flannel, indigo-dyed yarns, selvedge, 8.25 Oz.

The SPORTSMAN” is our on-going catalog of original classics. Made in USA, FW2020 additions include:
a) ARISTOCRAT Shirt:
* Cotton Oxford, selvedge, blue.
* Cotton Oxford, selvedge, white.
b) Continental Sportcoat and Trousers “RIVE GAUCHE”:
Heavy corduroy, cognac brown.
c) BALOO Jacket:
Combination black tea-core cowhide and brown sheepskin panels.
d) RANCH BLOUSE & CALIFORNIAN Lot.64:
SC66 indigo denim, selvedge 14 Oz., NOS plaid pocketing.
e) CALIFORNIAN Lot.674:
“Hawaii” indigo denim, selvedge 14 Oz.
f) FEED Cap:
* 6 Panel pattern, NOS selvedge denim.
* 5 Panel pattern, orange mesh & “Malibu” selvedge denim.
g) BALL-T’s:
Tubular “Stanley” all-cotton slubby jersey knit.
* Black body / white sleeves.
* Black body / royal blue sleeves.
* Royal blue body / white sleeves.
h) TOPSIDERS:
New Old Stock (NOS) 100% cotton herringbone twill, 8.5 Oz., brown (gunpowder tea color).

As always, besides the classic vintage style references, the common thread in all these original garments is our on-going commitment to ethical manufacturing and resistance to fast fashion.

Drop dates for this latest Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane SS2020 mfsc line-up are in the coming months. We are expecting deliveries between August and September 2020, as Japan and USA factories gradually complete production. Feel free to contact sales@misterfreedom.com with questions you may have, although full specs will only be available at the time each garment is released and documented on this blog.

Lastly, I know that you, as a consumer, have many options in selecting menswear apparel to match your aesthetics, ethics, and budget. I am therefore particularly grateful and indebted to all our supportive patrons, who have yet-again made another season of mfsc possible.
Thank you for supporting creativity, for keeping small businesses in business, and for
making us look good.
Stay safe and stay cool my friends.

Love from Sunny California,

c

MISTER FREEDOM® x SUGAR CANE Co mfsc SS2020 collection preview.

Our SS2020 mfsc line-up consists of several groupings of interconnected capsule collections, produced in Japan and USA. That up-coming season features “WATERFRONT SURPLUS”, “DUDE RANCH”, and a follow-up to our 1960’s McQueen-inspired concept called “YUCATÁN”, including our summer shirt collaboration with Sun Surf®.
We are introducing new fabrics (like the smashing Ice Blue denim!) in classic mfsc patterns, and familiar fabrics in new patterns. Some of these SS2020 garments fall under the SPORTSMAN (made in USA) or SURPLUS (made in Japan) catalogs, but are presented here regrouped by “story” rather than CoO (Country of Origin.)
Besides the classic style references and vintage inspiration, the common threads in all these original garments are our long-standing commitment to ethical manufacturing and aversion to fast fashion.

“WATERFRONT SURPLUS”:

1) DOCKYARD Jacket (made in Japan):

“YUCATÁN”:
Loosely inspired by an obscure 1969 movie script written by actor Steve McQueen. Set in Mexico and involving chasing motorcycles, roaring dune buggies, desert racing, cenote diving, and treasure hunting… That project never made it on film. Following its SS2019 chapter, our SS2020 take consists of the following.
1) MERIDANA Shirt (made in Japan):

* Beige mid-weight slubby Chambray, 50% Hemp – 25% Linen – 25% Cotton.

FW2019 Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane mfsc collections.

Our Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane Fall/Winter 2019 contribution to the world of Menswear fashion this up-coming season will consist of three groupings, FW2019PIOUPIOU”, “SURPLUS” and “SPORTSMAN”.

The “PIOUPIOU” collection is our 2019 theme-based capsule collection.
The obsolete term “Pioupiou” was a happy-go-lucky nickname given to French soldiers heading out to the frontlines on the onset of WW1. As the “Great War” (1914-1918) dragged on, and trenches of the Western Front revealed their terrifying reality, the sobriquet quickly changed to “POILU” (literally ‘hairy’), ’tough guy’ or badass in period jargon…
Our collection is loosely inspired by French military-issued garb of the 1910’s to the 1930’s. It blends period utility uniforms and revisited vintage civilian attire into contemporary wearables, following the usual MF® “might have been” design approach.
The FW2019 “PIOUPIOU” line-up, all garments produced in Japan, will consists of:
1) “MECANO” Jacket:
* Indigo cotton/linen HBT, 15 Oz.
* 14Oz. SC 401 “Hawaii” selvedge denim.
2) Pantalon “LE VAILLANT”:
* Indigo cotton/linen HBT, 15 Oz.
* 14Oz. SC 401 “Hawaii” denim.
3) Chemise “POILU”:
* 100% cotton blue sateen/popeline dobby stripe
* 100% cottonwhite sateen/HBT dobby stripe.
4) Chemise “M-35”:
* 100% indigo Linen plain weave.
* 100% cotton indigo stripe ticking, 4.5 Oz.

The SURPLUS” collection, our twist on classics and all-original vintage-inspired creations, produced in Japan, will consist of:
1) “MATTOCK” Jacket:
Heavy Corduroy, camel color, 14 Oz., with “Troy Blanket” lining.
2) “MULHOLLAND DRIZZLE-KING” Jacket:
100% cotton “Cachou” Brown canvas, 13 Oz.
Also shown on the photos is a DIY beeswax-treated prototype.
3) “TRAILBLAZER” Shirt:
100% cotton Brushed Sateen, Rust color or Prussian blue.
4) N-1H Deck Jacket:
100% cotton Jungle Cloth, 14 Oz., “Mulholland” brown.
5) “TONKINOISE” Shirt:
“Gunslinger” double indigo selvedge twill, 12.4 Oz.

1) “BALOO” Jacket, Black Edition:
USA-sourced MF® exclusive black tea-core (chashin) cowhide, brushed cotton flannel lining.
