question for everyone with a Mulholland Master - how do you normally wear it?  I got it assuming I'd wear it closed with the belt, but it's just not that flattering. Tying the belt, trenchcoat style, seems to wear better than using the prongs. But really it just seems to look better open - which is a shame because it loses some of its magic that way I think.

Those are some photoshopping! Christoph sure has a different way in producing workwear than any other brands/designers. How he incorporates fabrics and cuts together from the same era but different geographic locations is why the stuff they make are always intriguing to see. Oops dropped my 2 cents

The Champ shirt is similar to the thermals he put out a couple years ago. It has the same 3/4 sleeves. The bandana is 1 of 5 Christophe printed for the SENY grand opening. It's pretty much the same as this:  http://www.misterfreedom.com/?p=1113" rel="nofollow - http://www.misterfreedom.com/?p=1113  It bleeds like crazy though. The collar of my off duty CPO is red now.

 Just picked up two pairs of Mister Freedom riders in midnight and chino. John at the store advised me on size 32 in the midnight riders and size 34 in the rider chinos. Can anyone offer me advice on getting the correct fit in terms of shrinkage for these pants. John at the store has suggested the chinos come up a little small hence the size 34 option. How do these two pants behave in terms of shrinkage and what is the best way to get a custom fit (sit in the bath, cold wash, warm wash, tumble dry etc...?)  Any advice or experience with these pants appreciated. Thanks

MisterFreedom- it's really nice to have you here.
Mind if we ask you a few questions about the new season & the MF line in general? 
Something I've been wondering about was how you go about choosing and developing fabrics for the MFxSC pieces. Every season there seem to be a number of items that are made with original, exclusive materials that Sugar Cane has produced for you. The plain indigo/natural weave for the 'Off Duty' CPO shirt from several seasons ago and the linen/cotton canvas used in the new 'Blouse Chaparral" are especially intriguing to me.
 If you'd care to comment on your development process- either internal or your actual collaboration with Sugar Cane- in coming up with these or any other fabrics, we'd greatly appreciate it.

Thx for the welcome Gents.
Because i do not have to stick to rules and to keep things interesting for me, i like to mix fabrics with specific well established patterns. Not for the sake of the 'vintage with a twist' fad, but because i always feel that a lot of 'classics' have yet to see the light of day. Someone at the old Philly QM Depot might have come up with a denim Peacoat at one point, but it never got authorized nor left the drafting table... I like these type of fictions.
So when i chose fabrics, i keep the plausible aspect in mind. I would never, therefore, 'do' a MA-1 in tiger camo...
* The inspiration behind the plain weave indigo/natural fabric of the off-duty CPO was a lining found inside a pair of (otherwise pretty common) 1920's USN wool uniform trousers. It was a lighter weight 100% cotton textile, contrasting with the usual regulation black satin. I always wanted to use that somewhere, and thought it would work for that custom CPO shirt. It was milled in Japan from a swatch and instructions to make it heavier of ounce.
* For the Chaparral fabric, i used an old 20s~30s French hunting coat sample (the type with the 'game' metal buttons) that i've had for a while. The fabric was amazing to me, and much different than the usual 'coutil' fabric they are usually made of. The jacket is all beat up and sun faded, so after analyzing fiber content (Toyo got experts doing that), I picked a specific tone of the color from an inside concealed pocket that hadn't endure much wear/exposure.
When you don't use wash houses and fake aging treatments, it is tricky to foresee how a specific fabric you mill will age. So you have to get a bit familiar with dyeing processes and techniques.
That canvas fabric with french origin made sense for me to use. A similar fabric can be found in WW1 French military items (overcoats, tents, musettes...with a specific desired by collectors "cachou" color.) The idea of using tent fabric for work wear, although a bust at the time, had already made sense for someone we all heard about in SF a while back ;-)

Thanks for not doing this. This is a perfect example of "vintage with a twist" which is exactly what you're not doing. 

Thanks for the insight on the fabrics. The fabrics for the Les Apaches are some of the best I've seen and the new stuff looks incredible. The swatches on the cardboard boxes are a great touch

thank you for the insight mister, this collection as all the others is beautiful, and so full of crativity and imagination.

are those the californie jeans your wearing with the apache shirt? it looks slightly different, and will there be som scarf or bandanas included in this collection

I'd only do a tiger stripe MA-1 if i can add an off-center rhinestone glittery dragon on it, Dubai fashion style Clap
I's wearing some raw Calif 44s (Lot P2). No time to do bandanas this season... I kinda like a DIY faded raggedy strip of old fabric around the neck though (like an old recycled piece of original indigo calico), a bit less obvious than the bandana thing.
Bandanas are fun to draw, just a pain to print here because the screen is huge and it's hard to control the bleed thru effect so that both side are coloured.
I have tried discharge printing indigo dyed bandanas, but messed them all up. Need more patience...

Thanks, MisterFreedom! So nice to get a look behind the scenes.
 The 'off duty' CPO is a personal favorite of mine. I'm glad you finally found the right place to use that fabric. Would you care to show us a picture of the original trouser lining you based it on?


Posted By: mr randal
Date Posted: 08 Mar 2012 at 1:39am
Another question occurs to me after digesting your above response, MisterFreedom.

 If I am recalling correctly, the first two MF episodes (Naval Tailor & Speed Safe Clothing) utilized a mix of Sugar Cane staple textiles, some in exclusive colors, NOS fabrics, and a few exclusively manufactured MFSC fabrics, like the "white denim" and "midnight denim". The Apaches and American NOS lines seemed to be all NOS and exclusive MFSC fabrics. All of the items from the new theme so far appear to be specially developed MFSC textiles.

A) am I right here or way off base, and if I am correct:
B) did you consciously move in the direction of utilizing more and more custom developed textiles or is this something that has naturally evolved as your work has progressed?

Here are some shots of the original pocket bags and seat lining of those 20's USN trousers that inspired the MFSC 'off-duty' fabric:

My hirondelle shirt stopped bleeding after about two weeks of effective wear. The puckering on the placket and pockets really starts to show as well.

Mister freedom, what is the shrinkage like on the indigo hirondelle. I haven't washed yet.

@rnrswitch: a bit confusing with that fabric. Some people mentionned that after wearing in raw for a while, the fabric stretched out and washing didn't really make the shirt shrink. On the other hand, I have been wearing one of the early samples and had to rinse/machine dry it from the top, because sizing was wrong for me. Mine has shrunk a bit after full drying cycle. Because of the cotton/linen blend that fabric seems to have a life of its own and do its thing...

Midnight CPO and Chino Riders


Posted By: MisterFreedom
Date Posted: 10 Mar 2012 at 12:28pm
I've been very spoiled to have access to Toyo's endless ability to mill fabrics from swatches. In the early MFSC days i wasn't too familiar with that potential, so i indeed chose from existing SC fabrics. (looking back at the mix of the three SC denim of the 7161's, i guess i couldn't even make my mind up ;-)
Developing a new fabric is very costly/tricky/risky and expensive (and it shows at the end of the chain). Existing fabrics are usually an easier choice since fading/sturdiness/cost/shrinkage/'popularity' are somewhat under control. However, some of the collections are new territories for Toyo and called for new textiles and experimentation. Nothing is set in stone though, as, at times, a new item design is 'molded' around a NOS fabric I found in sufficient quantity to run a small batch prod, if it matches the story.
I am grateful to the Toyo textile team for milling/printing some of those new fabrics, as i know that it gets technically challenging and high maintenance for them. The amount of headaches coming with each MFSC collections is only a fraction of Toyo's staff daily dose.

IMHO, the headaches are well worth it.

from Clutch magazine, which is a new magazine from the publishers of Lightning. Apparently the e-book version will have an English translation.

Christophe, that brown Chaparral Blouse is lovely and the Triumph is sweet.

Christophe, what pants are you wearing in that photo?  I couldn't decide if it were the Speedway Pique's, Moleskin Pantalons, or the new Gunslinger Pants.  I'm digging them with the Blouse.

I've been waiting for http://www.misterfreedom.com/" rel="nofollow - this ! Saw these on some Japanese sites, but wanted to wait and get them direct from Mister Freedom. Fantastic artwork, as well. I want a poster.

Seconded.   Christophe, it's time for posters! 

Also, I love the "3-Way" fit pictures of the Gunslinger Pants.  It is a great way to see how they truely look/ fit.

It looks like a miserly old miner.  Or maybe somebody that rummages through trash heaps.
