  • STORY

  • FABRIC

    PATTERN: An original MFSC pattern, inspired by 1900′s~30′s pull-over shirting, with it’s origins in Europe before becoming a popular Old West garb feature.

    FABRIC:
     100% Cotton broadcloth, 4.5 Oz., dark Indigo dyed and discharge printed. Milled, dyed and printed in Japan. Two options: “Apache” calico print (tiny sun looking prints) and “pueblo” calico print (reminiscent of pueblos architecture)


    This is NOT a cheap navy blue print on a white fabric. By the time a Trade Shirt reaches us, many people have been involved in its making, none of them residing in China:

     

    * Our natural broadcloth was dipped many times in an indigo vat to reach the desired shade of dark indigo. plain weave fabric.

    Designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co under our MFSC® collaboration. Limited Edition.

  • SPECS

    * Then the shirts go to the long and tedious cut/sew production period…

    * Early homesteader, reminiscent of early non-traditional Indian Native style/silhouette
    * Stand collar with chin strap
    * Back panel and cuffs shearing.
    * Real 1920’s ox bone NOS buttons.
    * Button placket facing with contrast white all cotton muslin fabric.
    * Original rayon woven MFSC labeling on bottom of the button placket, reminiscent of early European Henley type undershirt label placement.
    * Flat felled chain-stitch seams and single needle machine construction.
    * Side gussets, European construction.
    * 100% cotton ivory color high count stitching.

    * A special paste was applied to the dyed fabric with a screen of the Apache or pueblo print.

    * The discharge process is finalized by way of steaming, the paste ‘bleaches out’ the fabric. The face of the fabric looks different than the inside because of the inconsistency of the ’bleed through’ effect.

  • CARE

    SIZING/SHRINKAGE:


    The trade shirt comes RAW, unwashed, and will shrink very minimally with cold wash and hang dry (the indigo dying process has technically taken care of the shrinkage)

     

    I recommend minimal detergent (such as Woolite for dark or equivalent), in order to keep the rich indigo color longer.

     

    As with ALL indigo dyed garments, color bleeding and rubbing is expected and unavoidable. Arms and body or white undershirts and skivvies WILL turn blue (no Smurf panic here, it all washes off easily).  The color rubbing will minimize after several washing/wearing cycles, until it eventually stops.  Available RAW/Unwashed
