We’re always excited to see what the folks at Mister Freedom and Sugar Cane have in store for us for each of their seasonal collaborations. The MFSC collabs have offered up some beautiful could-have-been pieces that look to the past for inspiration without fully engaging in reproductions.
One of the most recently released pieces from the duo is the Mister Freedom Okinawa CPO Shirt. The shirt boasts some serious 11 ounce unsanforized denim–rarely found in the world of shirting–which is composed of 50 percent cotton and 50 percent sugar cane. It’s also left-hand twill, which, is softer than its right-hand cousin. As you can see from the pictures, there is some strong texture going on, with a slubbiness evident on the exterior and some hardcore nep outside and inside.
The fit and construction is based upon a military aesthetic, offering a version of the classic casual outerwear piece that takes its cue from the functionality and clean lines of a uniform. The Okinawa keeps in the tradition of offering a heavier piece: at 11 ounces, it outweighs most of its shirting counterparts.
Suffice it to say that we’re excited to see how the fades shape up on this shirt.
