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.
