  • SIZING/ FIT

    Both versions of the Mécano come raw/un-rinsed. We recommend the usual protocol before wearing:

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

     • Spin dry and line dry.

     • Wear briefly before fully-dry to set creases, then hang until fully dry.

    Both versions will fit approximately the same following the above procedure, although the denim Mécano feels roomier because our mfsc shrink tests are done with heat-dried garments. There is therefore more shrinkage to be expected for the denim version with subsequent washing, or if a heat dryer is used. We don’t recommend heat drying as this tends to soften garments, ‘break’ the fabric starch, and result in unsightly fold creases or marbling marks. Garment stiffness after a soak/line dry will subside rapidly with normal wear.

    Please refer to sizing chart for measurements, reflecting a 30-40mn cold soak/spin dry/line dry process, resulting in minimal shrinkage.

  • CARE

    Both Mécano Jackets are considered true-to-size, and we recommend wearing your usual mfsc jacket size. I am usually a medium/38 in mfsc jackets, and I opted for a comfortable 38 in the indigo HBT and denim Mécano. Please note that the drape on both fabrics is very different, resulting in a subtle difference of silhouette.


    The raw measurements are given for reference only, as the numbers that actually matter are post soak. We do believe that, according to frequency of use, washable garments should be laundered when needed, and not kept ‘raw’.

     

    Launder when needed.

     

    We recommend turning indigo blue/denim garments inside out to avoid marbling during laundering. Machine wash, cold water, gentle cycle, eco-friendly mild detergent and line dry.

    Potential attractive patina will develop according to activities and frequency of wear.

     

    Please note that dark indigo might cause color transfer, and potentially “bleed” on light-colored garments, furniture, and skin.
