Mister Freedom’s Pantalon Ouvrier workmans trouser is inspired by early French workpants and military chore trousers. The detailing is tremendous with the 9.7 oz indigo dyed twill blend comes in a slimmer fit and a high rise for maximum comfort and wearability. The trousers come with matching fabric removable suspenders and the buttons are made from corozo natural wood.
As California’s Mister Freedom begins to take delivery of their fall pieces, we thought it would good to show you the brand’s offerings. This season sees a merger between the “Naval Clothing Tailor” and “Speed Safe Clothing”, both themes of collections we seen in the past. The characters in both series are meeting on common grounds, with pieces crossing over, all under the old school Mister Freedom umbrella.
The Chiller Vest is a crowd pleaser and it’s available in four variations, our personal favorite being the cotton/rayon finish in blue with indigo pockets.

Available for pre-order now is Inventory magazine’s second issue which looks to be as promising as the debut issue. So how do you top features that introduced us to the folks behind iconic brands like Mister Freedom, Engineered Garments and Yuketen? Inventory looks to give us an inside look at brands we seldom have access to here in the States and they succeed again as we get to meet the people behind BEAMS and The Real McCoy’s and many more.
Inventory Issue No. 2 is set to release on May 15th but it’s available for pre-order now. There are two covers, one which features Kenny Kenichi and another with Margaret Howell gracing the cover.
J.Crew continues to deliver some timeless collaborations, this time bringing together L.A.-based Mister Freedom and France’s Saint James. Mister Freedom designed and hand screened the original graphics onto an authentic Breton tee, a shirt that’s made Saint James the king of classic nautical style.

Mister Freedom gives a look at their continuing collaboration with Japan’s Sugar Cane. The Spring/Summer 2010 collection, entitled, “Speedsafe Clothing”, offers up a handful of item. On our radar is the chambray mechanic shirt and the ever-so popular Mulholland Master in a refined black issue. The fabric is a sturdy 100% cotton ‘gros grain’ type cloth, which was originally developed for the US Navy and officially called “Jungle Cloth”.

Mister Freedom and Japan’s Sugar Cane strike again with the addition of a second skin for your riding enjoyment. From Fall 2009′s “Speed Safe Clothing for Modern Riders” Collection, this motorcycle jacket is inspired by those from the 1940s to 1960s, when genuine horsehide leather was the best thing available to protect you from spills. The black/camel finish is fitted to an all-original MF S/c pattern. The Bronco Champ is lined with herringbone twill 100% cotton plaid fabric while the shell is genuine front quarter horse hide leather. It’s tough, but soft and is guaranteed to age beautifully.
The Bronco Champ Star Model was designed in California by Mister Freedom and skillfully crafted in Japan by Sugar Cane Co. It’s a limited edition piece and probably won’t last long. Hurry you might still be able to tuck it under the tree. (more…)
