Mister Freedom - The Second Chapter #1

One of our favorite lines here at Self Edge, Mister Freedom comes back with the second installment in the story of a Merchant Navy Sailor in the 1930's who had his clothes custom-made by the local Naval Base Tailor as he cruised around the world.

The second chapter of this concept is he sailor's last cruise that took him to the cold waters of the Souther Indian Ocean, after serving ten years in the Navy.

This Winter Collection, "The Last Cruise, Salty Years" focuses on extreme weather gear, custom Naval Tailor-made.
Our Sailor had become an "old salt" (an experienced seaman) by then and his clothes were weathered and faded by sea water, sun and wear. Although non-regulation, a popular practice since the 1920's for Navy enlisted men, was toe have custom "LIBERTY CUFFS" and multicolored stitching added to their uniforms by local tailors. Sewn on the inside of the garment and invisible to the patrol officers, the fancy cuffs were rolled up and displayed while on shore leave.
The sailor CPO denim shirt and forthcoming denim Pea Coat are "LIBERTY ISSUE", customized by the MFSC Naval Base Tailor, featuring a mermaid patch (also used as a secret money pocket) and hidden custom stitching in the form of a inner rainbow chainstitch.
The collection also includes a Modified Type of jungle cloth Deck Jacket, a pair of Modified Type 7161 denim jeans, a wool/cotton sweater, a rain hat, and an undershirt. MF has also reissued the extremely popular chambray shirt from last season.

We've done something a bit special again for this photo-shoot, modeled by Samuel de Goede, shot by Sidney Lo, then each main photograph was digitally processed by Ordo, also check the online store for hi-res shots of the rest of the details.

The 7161md Jeans, Foul Weather Hat, CPO Overshirt, Chambray Shirt, and Mister Freedom T-Shirts are now available in-store and in our online store, these items are made in small runs and restocks are not available. Please check the online store product pages for far too much information on every single piece in the collection:

Mister Freedom - The Third and Final Chapter

The last chapter of the "MFSC Naval Clothing Tailors" has unfolded.

The two previous collections, Spring 08 and Fall 08, captured the working gear and duty clothes that our Sailor had custom tailored in local ports during his 10 year service at sea in the Merchant Navy.

His duty Tour ended in 1946 in the waters of the Indian Ocean. Thereafter the whereabouts of our Seaman are unknown, but his wooden personal locker recently surfaced in a Southern California estate sale.
Unopened for over 60 years it contained a collection of his personal clothes, tailor made for his private use, when on shore leave and off duty.

The designs of this personal wardrobe came from the "MFSC Naval Supply Research" department and some items were labeled as "Experimental Garment" and made in very limited quantities as test pieces. None of them were intended to be worn on board during service, but rare photographs show our Sailor proudly sporting these garments while at liberty on some Indian Ocean shores...

The locker contained:
MFSC JS-09: A white denim Shore Jacket
MFSC PS-09: A pair of denim trousers
MFSC 645-N and 645-W: Two off-duty custom color Chambray shirts
MFSC SS-09: A pair of white denim Bermudas
MFSC VS-09: A multi-pocket denim vest

All these items are now available in extremely limited numbers and now even come in women's sizes; check the online store for full spec lists for all six items.

Mister Freedom * Speed-Safe Clothing for Modern Riders * 1ST GEAR

Mister Freedom, never one to disappoint with a compelling story-line or garment line, has moved on this season from the naval theme to clothing inspired by 1930's to 1960's motorcycle gear.

With the "Speed-Safe Clothing for Modern Riders" collection Mister Freedom delves deep into the vaults of lost designs and modifies them to today's needs of riders and non-riders of two wheeled motorized vehicles. Fully functional in every way and designed beyond what you'd expect from a small line made in Japan by those obsessed with the years past of garment manufacturing. Every piece is manufactured by Toyo Enterprises (Sugar Cane) with the utmost attention to detail, just as you'd expect from anything produced by Toyo and overseen by Mister Freedom himself, Christophe Loiron.

With the collection in first gear we bring you four pieces. A pair of Rider's Dungarees made of a beautiful left hand twill denim, a Mechanic's Shirt made of a indigo salt & pepper fabric similar to a medium weight chambray, a Mechanic's Sweatshirt available in three colors with great detailing and fabric that has to be felt in person to be fully understood, and last but not least a Denim Rider's Cap which is exclusive to Self Edge San Francisco outside of Japan.

As with all Mister Freedom collections these are made in extremely small runs and will not be available for long, so needless to say, if you want anything, do not wait. We'll be shifting into second gear in early November with a Horsehide Jacket and a Mulholland Master Jacket, and some other special surprises to come in a few months from now.

Check the online store for more images.
All these items are now available at SESF, SENY, and in our online store. The Denim Rider's Cap is only available at Self Edge San Francisco. Check the online store product pages for hi-res images, measurements, and far more specs than you probably need for a garment:

Mister Freedom Black Mulholland Master Jacket - Down Shift

Due to the popularity of the original Mulholland Master Jacket Mister Freedom has paid a short revisit to the piece by turning it into a cleaner version by employing a black jungle cloth fabric and forgoing the clip clasps for black Fiocchi snap buttons over the 1930's style "hookless" zipper. This version of the jacket also comes with white & indigo plaid checkered accents and a black windproofing leather inside the zipper cover flap.

With these color and fabric modifications they took a great jacket which was the most popular piece of the F/W09 collection and turned it into a guaranteed Mister Freedom classic by making a more minimal looking version.

Mister Freedom * Speed-Safe Clothing for Modern Riders * 2ND GEAR

The first new pieces from the Spring and Summer line of Mister Freedom have just come in. Expanding on the theme which was started in the fall of 2009 this collection goes deeper into vintage styles but moves the era up a bit to the 50's and 60's.

We've got a new light zip-up jacket in the form of the Breezer Drizzler made of an amazing fabric which has a cotton warp and a rayon weft. Great functional pockets, plaid ticking, and a great fit make this our perfect spring jacket. Available in both black and white.

Also in is a new take on the Mechanic's shirt in two new fabrics. One is a white chambray and the other is a black chambray with an indigo selvedge id.

Mister Freedom * The Midnight Collection * 3RD GEAR

The second half of Mister Freedom's spring and summer collection is a hot one.

Our French outlaw finds himself darkening up the collection with an amazing new fabric which is an MFSC original woven by the magical hands of Toyo Enterprises.
It's a 10oz denim twill with a royal blue selvedge id color; what makes this interesting is the warp threads are pure indigo rope dyed and the weft (fill) threads are black pigment dye. It's extremely dark but will age just like indigo denim does but in an entirely new way due to the black fill. An amazing fabric which almost has an overdyed look but it's the combination of the weave and indigo/black threads which give it a very blue-black look.

The Midnight Breezer jacket constructed out of the 10oz indigo/black denim twill is a light jacket with a "conmatic" zipper up the front, plaid ticking, three outer pockets, and one inner chest side-entry pocket.
The Midnight Rider's Jeans are a trouser style jean, very slick and very dark. Details are on the subtle side compared to past models and the denim is great for warmer weather wear considering its lighter 10oz denim twill fabric.

One last new item has come in to round off this season's offerings. The Union Tees are made up of 100% Cotton mid-weight tubular jersey in a 1930's European undershirt henley style with fabric covered buttons and underarm gussets.
The Union Tees are available either in a white jersey t-shirt with a indigo dyed popeline front placket or an indigo jersey t-shirt with a blue chambray front placket.

Mister Freedom Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Mister Freedom comes through with a highly anticipated collection which is a combination of updated versions of his greatest hits combined with a couple of essential basics.

For those waiting for the Mister Freedom rendition of the classic 5-Pocket jean this is your turn, Mister Freedom has done his version of a mid-50's style 5-Pocket jean out of a deadstock American woven unsanforized indigo denim. We love the details on this, from the pocket stitching to the leather stamped pocket tag to the straight leg classic fit it's a great jean and exciting to see Christophe Loiron's take on this classic style.

The Foul Weather Deck Jacket has been updated with a Troy Wool lining which is lighter in weight but just as warm as the previous version and the CPO Overshirts have been updated with two new fabrics, both exclusive to MFSC and woven just for this run of shirts.

Also in is a long sleeve sweater named the Union Fleece with a chambray placket down the front, a great snug fit, available in very small numbers (no restocks on this item). We love this piece, it's versatile and extremely comfortable.
