Sugar Cane for Mister Freedom – Trade Calico Shirt

We had to return to the Mister Freedom ‘Men of the Frontier’ Spring/Summer 2012 collection after last weeks superb canvas ‘blouse’ jacket. The second drop is here, a Calico shirt made once again in conjunction with Sugar Cane. This fabric is pretty amazing, as always plenty of background info from MF but to summarise “calico printed ‘homemade’ shirts were a well spread non-traditional garment for many Native Indians. Since the 1800’s those fabrics had been imported from Europe and widely used and reused by the pioneers and homesteaders”.

4.5 Oz. cotton broadcloth, chinstrap, 1920s ox bone buttons, available in Apache and Pueblo print. A look at their calico print swatches has us hoping this will be a continuing item for seasons to come. More here.
