Fade Friday – Mister Freedom CPO Liberty Issue (14 Years, 1 Soak)

Canada’s own Ryan Stevens has worn his CPO Liberty Issue Shirt from Mister Freedom since the prehistoric age of 2008. 2-0-0-8. That’s 14+ years people! In addition to being one of the oldest items we’ve featured, the story is too good.

After buying the shirt new from MF, Ryan soaked it once, and… that’s it! It hasn’t been washed or soaked since then. Although be worn nearly everyday, it hasn’t needed any repairs and is the sole reason ‘wine‘ in the phrase ‘aged like a fine wine’ needs to be replaced with ‘denim‘. The wear really is perfect.

Ryan stuck with his shirt, squeezing the life out of it any chance he got and it shows, everywhere. Every square inch of this fabric has been faded, unlocking every shade of blue imaginable with the collar, elbow, forearm, and chest pocket leading the charge. So before you buy that next piece, take a deep look inside…your closet, because chances are there is a future winner or two waiting for the Ryan method™.
