  • SPECS

    * Inspired by 1930s-40s custom-made private purchase naval dungarees and shipyard crews work clothing.

    * Pull-over style “jumper” pattern.

    * Half zipper closure placket, 30s/40s-style bell-shaped pull “silver” Talon zipper, 100% cotton tape. (use caution when fastening, as these vintage-style zippers are more delicate than modern versions with polyester tape. Lubricate the metal teeth with natural beeswax occasionally.)

    * Fabric cut using vertical cross grain for body and sleeves, displaying the warp horizontally.

    * Selvedge displayed in bottom hem, cuff hems, and pocket fold (denim version only.)
    * Three front utilitarian patch pockets.
    * Concealed chest pocket, stripe ticking fabric.
    * Clean chainstitch construction, no open seams.

    * Mister Freedom® mfsc woven rayon “SURPLUS” label.
    * Made in Japan.

  • SIZING/ FIT

    The following applies to both fabric options. The MF® LONGSHOREMAN Shirt comes raw/unwashed and is cut so that the measurements match the labeling after an initial cold soak/line dry.

    CLICK TO ENLARGE

    We recommend this usual protocol before wearing:

     • Cold soak for about 30-40mn, with occasional hand agitation.

     • Spin dry and line dry.

     • Hang until fully dry.

     

    Due to the 100% cotton stitching and specific grain cutting method, attractive puckering will show at the seams after the soak, giving the garment more of a vintage feel.

     

    The denim version will be stiffer after the initial soak due to the re-activated starch, but the stiffness is temporary and will subside rapidly with wear. I opted for a comfortable 38 (MEDIUM) in both fabric options, both with a similar fit but different drape. The silhouette is quite slim yet comfortable enough not to make pulling the shirt on/off an excruciating task

  • CARE

    According to body types, the cut will accommodate layering with a skivvy or classic Nixon chambray.
    We recommend going with your usual mfsc shirt size.

    Please refer to sizing chart for approximate raw/soaked measurements.
    Soaked = 30-40mn cold soak, spin dry and line dry (ie. minimal shrinkage).

     

    Launder when needed. For both options, we recommend turning the LONGSHOREMAN Shirt inside out, fully zipped-up, to avoid marbling of the fabric.
    Machine wash on gentle cycle, cold water, minimum eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry.
    Patina will develop according to activities and frequency of wear.

    Available Raw/unwashed ONLY.
