Our “NO PHOTO” policy is just a peaceful attempt at fencing off freeloading ‘designers’ taking shots of labeling/packaging/details of our clothes, for the price of an iPhone photo and a French exit. We have company names of a few red-handed specialists…
Our store inventory, new and vintage, takes a little while to design/make/collect/merchandise/curate. Normal people understand that the Mister Freedom® Los Angeles retail HQ is not a California State-funded attraction. With common sense and basic ethics, one realizes that taking photos of merchandise in a retail store in general requires asking for permission.
Having said that, if you’re into old piles of rags and want a souvenir of your West Coast trip, or an Instagram background for a selfie, we’re honored 🙂
We recently had the visit of Mr. Piero Turk, of ‘A Life With Denim‘ fame, who snapped a few in the store, to publish on his blog. Piero has a denim-related book out called “Details”, available here, featuring close-ups of vintage work-wear. Thank you for the visit.
