This season, Mister Freedom has taken to the high seas. Well, in this case – just the docks, actually. Part of their Spring/Summer line is their “Waterfront Surplus” which takes inspiration from the many iconic pieces worn to sea. One such piece is their Longshoreman Shirt, a popover shirt that comes in an indigo herringbone twill.
In keeping with their 1930s U.S. and French Naval inspiration, the Longshoreman is styled on a denim work shirt worn as a uniform piece in the 1940s. The 7.7 oz. HBT is actually a cotton/linen blend well-suited to summer and the garment stays true to its workwear origins with the inclusion of three chest pockets and an overall boxy cut.
Though you may not be shipping out to sea, it can’t hurt to have a well-made, breathable denim overshirt in your rotation, can it? Especially one that conjures the calming image and feel of being on the water.
