“Workman Shirt” in NOS cotton-linen Stripe Chambray “Sportsman Shirt” in NOS check cotton poplin.
The Sportsman catalog, Spring 2017
Made in USA

We are kicking  Spring 2017 with two additions to the Mister Freedom® Sportsman catalog, home of Made-in-USA vintage-inspired classics, old-school original MF® patterns issued in an assortment of fine New Old Stock or fancy Japan-milled fabrics.

This season, our MF® Workman Shirt comes in a fancy New Old Stock woven stripe chambray, a textured cotton-linen blend of EU origin. This light color oat meal fabric contrasts with the previous  darker iterations of our traditional 1940’s-50’s type work shirt, such as the HBT Gunpowder Tea, Indigo Wabash, or 2×1 Blue Denim versions.

The MF® Sportsman Shirt, another vintage work shirt classic pattern with an early workwear twist (chin strap and shoulder yoke darts), gets a woven check cotton poplin navy blue treatment. This NOS fabric of fine manufacture is of uncertain origin.
Both shirts are produced in limited quantities, due to limited stock of fabric.

The Workman Shirt and Sportsman Shirt are designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.

The Mister Freedom® RANGER Shirt, made in USA from New Old Stock authentic Indian Madras milled on shuttle powerloom.

The Mister Freedom® Ranger Shirt, Powerloom edition
NOS authentic Indian Madras
Made in USA

Working on this off-the-beaten-path MF® Ranger Shirt project has been quite the walk in the park for some time.
After years setting it on and off the back burner, we are happy and proud to finally share the results of its manufacturing journey. Here is the Mister Freedom® Ranger Shirt, latest addition to our USA-made Sportsman catalog.

Those of you familiar with the brick and mortar pile o’ rags at 7161 Beverly Blvd might have noticed an unusual stack of hopsack-wrapped bales sitting in the back of the store, at some point during a visit. Sometime around 2010, we came across a large lot of New Old Stock textiles, packaged  into compressed bales. Although discovered in an old warehouse in California, these mysterious bundles of cloth originally came from India. More precisely from a textile manufacturer located in Chennai, a city formerly known as Madras.
How and why those bales ended-up in California is unclear, but even more puzzling was the content: stacks of folded yardages of unused cotton fabrics, a crazy mix of textiles in an amazing range of colors, checks, dobby patterns and textures, all selvedge… Most of them were no longer than six-yard strips, a realization greeted by a subtle wtf upon cracking open the first bale.
A yellowish packing list inside each bundle detailed the exact yardage content, and invoiced the shipping transaction back to 2001. The paperwork also described the original shipper as “Manufacturers and Exporters of: Handloom & Powerloom Fabrics in Cotton & Rayon as Madras Fast Colour Checks, Cross Colour Chambrey, Greygada, Dobby Checks, Stripes, Tie & Dye, Ikat Flannel, Seer Sucker, Bathik Prints, Marble Prints, Patchwork, Lunghies & Rumals…” (spelling as-is). A mouthful on a business card, but a very promising resume for the fabric addict.

The exact vintage of all these Indian mill textiles is unknown, but many feel quite 1960’s-70’s. With an average width of about 44 inches, selvedge to selvedge, they were apparently milled on shuttle powerlooms. Antiquated and obsolete shuttle powerlooms are still in use in India and other textile-manufacturing destinations today, not always to the benefit of pleasant working conditions. Let’s leave workers’ wages and other local labor issues aside on this one…
Old-school powerloom weaving is a disappearing technique due to productivity challenges, equipment maintenance, and the disappearance of the operators’ know-how. The produced textiles are often inconsistent, slubby and imperfect, not in par with our contemporary expectations of standardized mass-produced goods.
The selection of the fabrics contained in our bales definitely typified the ‘wabi-sabiness’ of textiles milled with shuttle powerloom machines: weaving flaws, texture variations, yarn slub and other traits of uniqueness. Apparently, no computer was harmed in the milling of these Madras fabrics!
(Powerloom photo credit here, some interesting facts/images of bleeding madras here.)

However amazing our eclectic fabric loot was, indeed a treasure trove for the textile R&D-inclined, turning countless disparate strips of cloth into garments seemed a bit challenging. In good ol’ MF® “Geronimo!” fashion, and following the old familiar adage “in life, there are no problems, only solutions”, we figured out a way to somewhat handle that soup sandwich. And boom, these yardages of Madras checks have now been given a new life, as upcycled wearables!
The MF® Ranger Shirt comes in dozens and dozen of very-few-of-a-kind variations in colors, textures and patterns. You will see Glenn checks, Madras checks, tartan plaids, windowpane checks, Tattersall, Pin check, houndstooth, gingham… Fabric texture and thickness is also all over the place, ranging from lightweight plain weave to muslin-types to dobby weave patterns…
Here is a sample taste of the Ranger Shirt menu:

The garment pattern of our Ranger Shirt is no groundbreaking revolution, as it is inspired by the same vintage pieces that heritage brands and mainstream labels alike have been playing with for some time, i.e. 1930’s-40’s workwear-type shirting featuring a chin-strap.
The ‘Ranger’ name reference is not a military one, but hints at Park and Forest Rangers and the early days of Conservationism.
The MF® Ranger Shirt, Smoky the Bear goes preppy Madras, for a fashionable patrol in your favorite National Park…


Smokey, the original denimbro.

On sizing availability:
Each fabric style yielded a very limited amount of shirts. Often, only one specimen could be made, so this is as close as manufacturing vintage clothing as it can get for us. If sizing options are very limited for one particular check pattern, some of these checks can be regrouped in families and a different size in a similar fabric might be available. Check with for special requests.

Oh, and each shirt features a combination of 1920’s-30’s antique buttons from Europe, for that International touch. The MF® Ranger shirt is adorned with an assortment of NOS white and tan glass buttons (don’t bang on these Briards type buttons, they are glass and will break), and one rare vintage sheetmetal button embossed with “For Gentlemen”…

This limited edition Ranger Shirt is designed in California by Mister Freedom®, and manufactured in the USA with New Old Stock Madras fabric originally milled in Madras, India.


Vintage New Old Stock Indian madras, woven on shuttle powerloom machinery, 100% cotton, selvedge. Assorted patterns, colors and weave, approximately regrouped by check families and color range.
Please refer to the MF® website regarding purchasing the Ranger Shirt online, in the Madras check of your choice.

* Original Mister Freedom® pattern, inspired by 1930’s-40’s workwear and casual preppy shirting.
* Relaxed silhouette and fit.
* Long sleeves.
* Double chest pockets, inverted box-pleat.
* Chin strap.
* Full button front, featuring French 1930’s vintage “Briard” glass buttons.
* European vintage 1930’s top button, debossed “For Gentlemen”.
* Selvedge side gussets, self fabric.
* Each shirt is unique, one or few-of-a kind.
* Very limited edition.
* Made in USA.

For general instructions on how we size Mister Freedom® garments, see here. Please refer to sizing chart to figure out what works for you.
To limit shrinkage dilemmas with the Ranger Shirt, we have opted to thoroughly launder/dry each shirt in-house.
This not only takes care of most of the shrinkage (we used cold water), but also results in interesting fabric/stitching puckering. As much as I am not into factory-distressed garments, I like the wrinkled ‘vintage look’ when it comes to casual shirts with a workwear feel.

All shirts were measured and size-stamped AFTER the cold wash/dry process. This lead to four size groupings (S, M, L and XL) with somewhat similarly consistent measurements. Two Mediums in two different fabrics will have some variations in measurements and proportions, but they still belong to their size family, as Mr. Dascalu’s painstaking and torturing sizing assignment have determined. Within one sizing group, they are still noticeable variations in length, meaning some Mediums will be shorter than other Mediums.
Putting each shirt in a specific sizing group was mostly determined by the pit-to-pit measurements. Praises or donations for the pleasant endeavor can be forwarded to

If your are generally a Medium in MF® shirts, it is safe to opt for a Medium in the Ranger Shirt, for a comfortable fit. However, some of the Smalls might also work for some, for a slimmer 1960’s silhouette.
(All shirts shown on the fit pix below are stamped Medium.)

Depending on the specific weave of each fabric, some stretching back and forth is to be expected as the shirt goes through wash/wear cycles. Please note that steaming or ironing will result in a garment that appears to fit more comfortably. Wrinkles tend to make light-weight garments look like they fit tighter.

Each Ranger Shirt has been thoroughly wash and dried.
Launder when hygiene dictates and common sense prevails.
Machine wash on delicate. Cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry.

Mister Freedom® “Californian” blue jeans LOT.74, NOS wheat denim.
The Sportsman, Fall 2015, made in USA.

We’ve had requests… but we did it anyways. We’re adding another Californian to “The SPORTSMAN” catalog.

To the MF® blue jeans saga inaugurated by the Lot.54 in 2010, backed by the special ‘Goat Rope’ edition Lot.44 the following year, beefed-up by a herd of Lot.64‘s starting in 2013, revisited this Spring with the Lot.654… we are adding a chaser: the unbeeeeeliiiievable Californian Lot.74.

“That’s unbeeeeeliiiievable.” says Tony Manero (1977)

Tony might want to sit this one out, still, since this updated cut of our classic five pocket jeans has yet to feature that enviable 14-inch flare. But we’re working on it, Anthony.
So what’s the fuss about the Lot.74 you axe me?

Walks in Alain.

The End

The Sportsman “Californian” LOT.74 wheat denim jeans are designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.


Inspired by traditional 1960′s-1970’s era blue jeans, traditional slim fit, straight leg from the knee down. The Lot.74 is our slimmest five-pocket jeans cut, and is as slim as we’ll go, with a silhouette similar to the Malibu’s and somewhat of a high rise by 2015 standards.

Limited NOS Cone Mills wheat denim, 12.5 Oz., black/white/red line selvedge ID, sanforized. Milled in the USA.
Pocket bags: French NOS navy blue cotton pique, from an old stock of French workwear fabric lot.

* Five pockets.
* Zip fly, vintage-style brass ‘Gripper Zipper” pull.
* Selvedge leg outseams.
* Combination of tonal stitching, 100% cotton threads of assorted gauge.
* Re-designed rear pocket shape.
* Original inconspicuous “M” stitch design on rear pockets.
* Newly-designed debossed leather MF® patch on rear pocket. Cristian likes it.
* Coin pocket with concealed selvedge.
* Top pocket reinforcement zig-zag stitching.
* Original brass cast MF® branded waist button.
* Unmarked copper riveting for pocket reinforcement.
* Original MF® ‘smoke-free Johnny’ pocket paper flasher.
* Made in USA

The wheat denim Californian LOT.74 comes UN-WASHED and cut so that the measurements match the labeling AFTER an original cold soak/line dry. This specific denim is sanforized, and a tagged W32 x L34 wheat Lot.74 Californian will measure an approximate 32” x 34” after the initial soak/dry process.

Which size works for you depends on your actual waist, and how you like your jeans to fit. I wear a tagged waist 32 in the Lot.74.
We recommend getting your usual waist size, although proper fit is a subjective matter and everyone has their own idea of what looks good.
As with all denim twill, shrinkage and stretching will occur for a while and will depend on the wearer’s body, activities and initial fit.
Please refer to sizing chart for approximate raw/soaked measurements. Soaked = 30mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry.

Lot 74 Wheat

Wash your jeans when hygiene dictates and common sense prevails.
Machine wash with cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry. Please note that the debossed graphic on the leather patch will naturally ‘flatten out’ when soaked in water. As devastating as it is, this is normal.
DISCLAIMER: Some minor color transfer from the the leather patch and pocket bags to the wheat denim might occur after laundry. This will recede with subsequent washing cycles, as light-colored garments require frequent cleaning. Using hot water will increase chances of color transfer.

Mister Freedom® Black “CAMPUS” Jacket, Italian veg-tanned Lamb edition
‘The Sportsman’ Fall 2014

That’s right jack.
It’s back.
It’s black.

And I don’t mean zombie-consumerism Friday, with deals you can’t refuse on things you won’t use.
I’m talking new addition to the Sportsman catalog. Like a new version of the MF® Campus Jacket we originally introduced in 2013.

In this instant-gratification World, where mass producing soft factory-distressed garments is the norm and the money-making ticket for the Garment Industry majors, releasing an unlined pink-colored cowhide jacket, as we did in the Fall of 2013, can be seen as an unwise move. In the “these guys are not well” kind of a way…
But thanks to the good sports who decided to take the plunge and play the DIY game, we survived. And, a year later, there are some mighty fine examples of worn-in Campus jackets out there.
We were rewarded by all the cool evolution shots, every patient new owner molding his Campus to his own liking, for some breaking it in for the next generation.
One way to do it was expertly documented on the Vintage Engineer Boots website by our friend USMC MSgt John V.
Whether hands-on or via social media photos, witnessing this fun natural patina process might have hopefully convinced a few skeptical individuals that the ‘worn look’ will come… naturally. Our Campus jacket went from a ‘raw’ light pink to warm shades of orange, with basically sun exposure and wear. Nothing revolutionary for you salty bunch, but an apparent novelty for some who hold factory-distressed clothes as the norm, because they are ‘comfortable’ straight off the rack…
My apologies to the choir for the broken record.


Early evolution of a Campus jacket, 2013

Campus Jacket Natural cowhide Mister Freedom 2013

Perso Campus jacket, 1.5 year of intermittent wear

Then, in 2014, this happened…
As I was sourcing out leather one day, trying to discern Sonny Fisher’s ’56 “Pink and Black” from the engine rattle, I came across a stack of wrapped bundles of black leather sitting on top of a metal shelving unit, in a wholesaler’s warehouse. Inside the craft paper, small hides of a supple and delicate leather with somewhat of a glove leather touch had been gathering dust for years. This was ordered from an Italian tannery and was never paid for, I gathered…
Long story short, this was a New Old Stock lot of genuine vegetable-tanned lamb hides from Italy (I found some remnants of paperwork in the rolled skins).
Although a definite departure from the rugged look of a worn cowhide Campus jacket, I felt that a black Italian lamb Campus would not be too shabby of an addition to the Mister Freedom® Sportsman catalog. Next thing I remember, I was driving off with my lamb loot.
The USA manufacturing went as smooth as the first time around…

Campus Jacket Mister Freedom 2013

The first time around…

For extra fun and because we had way too much time on our hands this summer, the originally solid dark brown corozo buttons we selected for the project were left in the sun for several weeks. This gave ‘life’ to the wood grain and veins, making each button unique, and puzzling the neighbors in the process. Yes, we laid each button flat in several trays, one by one, then put the trays on the roof for a tan. We then sat down and stared for over a month. Don’t worry, we took turns.
Now, if you‘re very bored one day, check the back side of a button, for an idea of its original color.

Campus Black Lamb Mister Freedom 2014 Campus Black Lamb Mister Freedom 2014

The style of our Campus jacket, inspired by a “Cossack” type cut popular in the 1930’s, has been discussed in the original post and remains the same for this black lamb issue.
This time however, DO NOT immerse this jacket in water! Don’t even think about it…
The black lamb Campus is ready to go, just requires to be worn as-is, without any pre-treatment or efforts.
This version is intended as an elegant 1930’s style jacket, dressy sportswear if you will. These veg-tanned lamb hides are delicate and will scuff easily. Do not rub against brick walls or drag this jacket behind your car, like this maniac
This is not a workwear-type coat meant for field work and rugged treatment, including storing nails in the pockets. You wear this on a date. Or to get a date, when cargo shorts don’t cut it.

Bottom line, should both arms of our Black Lamb Campus get tied to two draft horses pulling in opposite directions, we guarantee the jacket will rip in half.

The Campus Jacket was designed and manufactured in California, USA, by Mister Freedom®, with the help of Sugar Cane Co.


PATTERN: An original pattern inspired by 1930’s sportswear type lightweight leather jackets.

LEATHER: Genuine Italian vegetable tanned lamb leather, exclusive to the USA production. The leather is BLACK.

* 1930’s silhouette
* One piece back
* Fully unlined, clean seams.
* Cotton corduroy collar and wrist cuff facing
* Slash pockets with arrowhead-shaped edges.
* Side gussets with adjustable side straps (NOS metal slide buckles)
* Keyhole button holes.
* Sun-tanned brown ‘Cat Eyes’ corrozo wood buttons (aka ivory nut), backed by 1920’s NOS French antique glass buttons (some jackets will have black, some will have iridescent white-colored back-buttons).
* Underarm venting eyelets
* Mister Freedom® ‘The Sportsman’ woven label behind the slash pocket, right front panel.
* High stitch-count, sturdy poly-cotton thread stitching.
* Made in California, USA.

This is quite a delicate jacket, not intended to be worn while working in the field but rather as a dress-up garment.
It does not require any type of pre-treatment and is ready to wear as-is.
After a few years of normal use, professional care or conditioning might be considered and left to a veg-tanned leather specialist. Again, DO NOT immerse in water.

The cut of the Campus is quite snug, depending of course on your own built. I wear a snug 38, my usual size in MF® jackets, with a simple Tshirt or light shirt underneath.
Like its cowhide predecessor, this black lamb model is true to size. It is not anticipated that the lamb leather will stretch/’shrink’ with normal wear.

Please refer to sizing chart for approx measurements, identical to our 2013 natural cowhide Campus jacket.

Sportsman Shirt, indigo twill métis
“The Sportsman” Catalog, Fall 2014

A new addition to our “Sportsman” line-up this Fall 2014 is an indigo twill métis shirt.
Using our classic Sportsman shirt pattern, we have once again put an old familiar face to work: our original indigo métis fabric, originally introduced sometime in 2011 with the Veste Ouvrier of “Les Apaches” collection.
Some of you might be familiar with other good use we have made of that fabric, such as the Sportsman Chinos, Pantalon Ouvrier, the Paletot Apache, the Chemise Hirondelle, and the Gilet de Ville de Depp de Hollywood

When applied to textiles, the French word métis refers to a blend of cotton and linen fibers. Métis fabrics were used extensively by French country folks in the better part of the XXth Century, for both bedding and clothing. If hemp was never mixed with linen, cotton became its best companion due to the properties of the resulting ‘métissage’. In the old days, cotton/linen textiles were tough, affordable, washed easily… until poly fibers hit the fan.
On a side note, it has not escaped you that I have kept on spelling it wrong since launching our indigo twill in 2011. Indeed, it is métis, and not métisse. Mea culpa, I can now feel awsome again.
The fabric of our Sportsman shirt blends 70% cotton with 30% linen. Woven in a twill pattern, both warp and weft yarns are indigo dyed.

Sportsman Metis Fall 2014 Mister Freedom

For those into naturally faded specimen of indigo-dyed clothing, here are some instances of what happens to our indigo métis over time.
We don’t get tired of our friend Tyler’s veste ouvrier, quite an epic example of what happens to workwear actually worked-in…

Veste Ouvrier Tyler Madden Mister Freedom

Our friend Mikko, from  “Pancho and Lefty” in Sweden, has a neighbor who seems to enjoy wearing his Sportsman Chinos indigo métis quite regularly… These were purchased unwashed, and were originally the exact same color as our métis shirt…
Thank you for sharing, Gentlemen.

The Sportsman Shirt indigo twill métis is designed and manufactured in California, USA, by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.
Fabric loomed  in Japan.

PATTERN: An original MFSC, inspired by our vintage influences.

Indigo Métis Twill: 9.7 oz. indigo dyed twill blend, 70% cotton and 30% linen, un-sanforized. The yarn core is white, the indigo outer has a purple blue shade typical of early French indigo work clothes. Fades, bleeds and reacts to sun light.

* Relaxed silhouette and fit.
* Original chest inverted box-pleat double pockets.
* Slim chin strap.
* Full button front.
* Original painted embossed metal buttons, combination solid and MFSC branding.
* White cotton popeline button facing strip.
* Double front & back expansion pleats on shoulder yoke.
* One piece cuff gusset.
* 100% cotton thread, high stitch count.
* Flat felled seams, with inside green chain-stitch MF® signature.
* Side gussets.
* Original “The SPORTSMAN” woven rayon label.
* Made in California, USA.

This shirt comes raw/unwashed.
We recommend an original 30mn cold soak, spin dry, line dry. The shirt can be shaped by putting it on for a few minutes while still damp, then hung back to fully dry. This process with result in minimal shrinkage and almost no indigo color loss. The shirt might still feel a bit loose because it has not fully shrunk but will settle to the proper fit with subsequent normal wear/wash cycles.
We prefer this slower method over the hot water/heat dryer some use to make clothes fit.
I am a Medium in mfsc shirts and wear a Medium in the Sportsman métis.

Color croaking is to be expected and will temporarily ‘stain’ light color garments such as white undershirts. Indigo rub-off washes off eventually, but is less than attractive when applied to arm pits. This is unfortunately the nature of the beast.
This indigo-dyed métis fabric is also very light sensitive. Protect garment from the sun if stored folded to avoid uneven fading.
When laundry is due, hand-wash inside out with mild detergent and line dry.

Please refer to chart for cold soak/line dry measurements. Keep in mind that our cold soak method results in minimal shrinkage.
