As a part of their special 10 Year Anniversary Collection, the vintage-inspired mastermind over at Mister Freedom dug deep into their archives to bring back some hits from the past with an updated spin. One of those pieces is the Liberty Issue CPO Type 189ac shirt, offered in a new fabric option and rich with thoughtful detailing that helped MF become the brand it is today.
Originally released sometime in 2008, the Type MFSC 189 CPO was an interesting take on something you might have seen on the back of a Merchant Navy sailor in the 1930’s. Features such as single pleated front chest pocket with hidden inner passport pocket, button chin strap, and snap button closure all carried over into this piece.
More notably, the new 189ac will also feature updated vintage-style “Liberty Cuffs” featuring original MF embroidered octopus and mermaid artwork on 100% rayon. While various iterations of this piece have seen releases throughout the brand’s archives, this is the heaviest one, weighing in at 11.7oz. of yarn-dyed indigo selvedge cotton canvas, milled and constructed in Japan. It may require some saving for, but when it comes to Mister Freedom you can rest easy knowing the quality and history are unmatched.
Available soon for $399.95 at Mister Freedom.
