Mister Freedom

Recommended Posts

Wearing the HBT Apaloosa for the first time today. Very nice shirt, fairly light weight. The wrist are super tight though. I can’t button the first snap over my watch.

Could someone give me the measurements for their *washed / soaked several times* garrison twill shirt? I'm trying to get a sense of how much they really shrink. The numbers on MF's website don't make sense (L size shrinks 1" in the chest but XL size only shrinks 1/4 inch). Mostly interested in chest & shoulder measurements for the L or XL sizes.

Inhale, exhale just got an Okinawa Ranch Blouse in the mail. I've had my eye on one for some time and the jacket in hand is really something. Loads of details topped off with great Sugar Cane denim. Great service and denim chat with the team at Rivet & Hide @Danny @ Rivet & Hide.

Pre-soak pics... soak underway now so I have my fingers crossed...

Thanks @Broark! I'd definitely say go for it ! It's a special jacket - lots of features without being overtly showy imo.

I've just done a  30 min warm soak and quick spin - there is significant shrinkage to factor in... 
P2P 2.5 cm
Shoulders 1 cm
Length 2 cm
Opening 3 cm
Sleeve 4.5 cm

Mildly anxious it's going to be a tight squeeze for me now!!! Hey ho will do some prayers and get cracking on wearing it in tomorrow when it's dry...

Yes @bartlebyyphonics! It's that kind of jacket - thanks.

@ThisSunday's white one is consummately cool as! A proper Sunday special. 

The good news is it fits in its post-soak damp state - though now very snug and a little shorter. Was never any good at waiting for things... but think I'll avoid the dryer on this occasion :)

I thought I'd add a couple of post-soak pics (hope I'm not innundating the page!). As you'd expect it's snugger in the chest, shoulders and opening and a good bit shorter in length. The arms are a much better length now. Must say I'm happy with it.... now onto breaking in the reassuring crunchy-ness...

@MJF9I'm still on the fence, it's been so warm here lately that I've barely been able to wear any jackets yet.
I don't think I'll be able to hold out through the weekend though...:ph34r:

Yeah, that jacket is so nice. I have too many denim jackets already and I don't even get to wear them that much so I just can't justify getting another. My MF cowboy jacket isn't even remotely broken in yet.

Love it. MF really nails their jackets.

 

What shirt is that?

Shirt is from Proper Cloth. A mtm company. Fabric is from Albini I think but out of stock atm.

Raw state the jacket was pretty frumpy but after that hot wash and dry it shrunk to perfection on me. My first denim jacket and I'm loving it.

Well, I fucked around and missed the Okinawa Ranch Blouse. Starting to think this jacket wasn't meant to be. :(

I really like that jacket and I’m thinking about getting it in Cone. Did you take your usual MF size?

I have that one in the NOS Cone, too. My usual MF size is 38 but I took it in 40, didn't want it to come up too short. Sleeves also came out perfect for me and would have been on the short side with a 38, but YMMV on that.

If you don't mind shorter length and don't want to layer too much under it your usual size should work fine. For comparison, I have the Mulholland Master in 38 and 10th Anniv. CPO in M and they fit great.

Just wasn’t meant to be I guess, I’ll probablt hold out for a CSF type II or the next iteration of the Ranch Blouse. :ph34r:

@CAL415

For outerwear I don't have a usual size as that's my first MF jacket. Took a size 38 based on the charts. Reference I'm 5'8 and at 170lb (weightlifting so maybe not a good reference for you). Took it based on the sleeve length and shoulders.

For shirts I'm actually M-L depending on fabric shrinkage or lack there of.

Both tips are really helpful. Thanks!

Do you pay attention on whether a MFSC item is made in Cal or Jp?

I don't see why I should care, no matter where it's made quality is always there with MF. As long as that doesn't change Christophe can have his stuff sewn wherever he likes.

Shoulders - 18.5

P2P - 23

Length - 30 1/8

Waist - 22.5

Sleeve - 25
