Between opening a can of worms and untying a sack ‘o cats (dixit Dino), here is the scoop:
Same drill than with the Ranch Blouse, we have selected some New Old Stock selvedge denim from our archives to make the Californian Lot.54
Cut and sew has been a challenge, as previously mentioned, but we are happy with the results.
One “five pocket” pattern in about 35 different denim… 28” to 33” width old shuttle loom made selvedge denim, collected throughout years of warehouses digging. Origin Japan and USA.
All MADE IN U.S.A. Five pockets style. Selvedge legs and button hole fly flap. Riveted back pockets with ‘zigzag flush’ stitching. Original “M” back pocket stitch design, securing inside all cotton twill backing.
Original Mister Freedom® pattern, inspired by traditional 1950′s era blue jeans.
All 100% cotton color thread. We are using an original MF 12 types of gauge/color combination thread for each pair of jeans. Main colors are Orange/Yellow, non colorfast.
Designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom® in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co.
Original Mister Freedom casted combo metal fly buttons, steel back. Unmarked copper flat top rivetting.
Handmade original MF® debossed natural cowhide leather patch on right back pocket. Cheeze cloth size labeling stitched in rear part of waist band. The Lot.44 has an added back cinch strap, longer inseam, yellow “M” pocket and side stitching, different fabric pocket bags.
100% cotton NOS stripe ticking denim. Some bag bags are made with indigo/white plaid twill. Random.
Based on the general silhouette/image of the “BRMC” blue jeans of the Wild Ones (1953). Traditional mid-rise, “tubular” silhouette legs, fit seat. These blue jeans are NOT skinnies, as we don’t dig the ‘men in tights’ or “girlfriend’s jeans” thingy.
Available RAW/unwashed (again, the photos of the used jeans above are just for reference, and NOT how they will come)

To each his own, but we recommend the “quick cold rinse, hang dry and wear when damp” method. Subsequent washing when REALLY needed, minimal detergent and hang dry.
All fabrics are RAW and unwashed. Due to the assorted denim, shrinkage is all over the place. Please refer to chart below, where we shrink tested some of the jeans (cold soak for about 30 min, no agitation.
Please don’t BOIL your jeans, as you will alter the color of the denim and ruin the leather patch.
In the USA, the Californian Lot.44 comes in an old school cardboard box with original artwork. This sturdy box can be used for storage of small items, please re-use.
