MFSC “Midnight Riders”, Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane, Spring 2010: The “Speed Safe Clothing for Modern Riders” Collection.

Man, do we love those dungarees here! Can’t stop wearing them and noticing the indigo abrasion everyday. Impossible for me to photographically capture the beauty of the fabric, but the combo indigo “soaked” yarn warp and black dyed yarn weft has a life of it’s own. You’ll see…
The face of the raw fabric looks like a rich very dark indigo/black. The inside looks black.

* Pattern: An all original MFSC pattern, inspired by twill work chino pants, old denim dungarees and European 20’s-30’s slacks.
* Fabric: 10 oz. original MFSC exclusive denim cotton twill, milled in Japan. Indigo warp x black weft. Royal blue selvedge ID. Non-sanforized (=not pre-shrunk).

The “Midnight Riders” featured on the photos are my own (dirty) pair, worn raw for about 1+ month, still unwashed, NFS.
Stock issues are RAW and not artificially aged. Get your own whiskers, baby! Also expect some indigo “bleeding” on underwear or undershirts, goes with the territory…You can soak the garment in water/vinegar to limit that.

Mister Freedom x Sugar Cane: MFSC “Mulholland Master”

Sharp, sharp! The Master! The Master!

MFSC Mulholland Master

 

 

 

MF S/c “MULHOLLAND MASTER” By Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane

“Speed Safe Clothing for Modern Riders”, Fall 2009 Collection

 American riding jackets were predominantly made out of leather since the 1930’s, which proved unpractical in wet and muddy environments, such as off road riding and rainy conditions. They were also mostly shorter waist cut.

Influenced by military patterns, British motorcycle clothing manufacturers (such as Barbour International, Belstaff etc) adapted military field/air jackets to produce riding coats suitable for wet and cold conditions, creating the typical “International” style soon sported by riders around the world. Professional motorcyclists also adopted that style, as seen with the 1964 ISDT American Olympic Team outfits, featuring Steve McQueen as one of the official US Trial riders.
