Mister Freedom “VAQUERO” Blue Jeans – Just Released


Mister Freedom has become known for drawing inspiration from different historical eras and creating pieces that range from 1930’s naval inspired jackets to 1960’s Californian Sportswear shirts. Their newest collection, aptly named “Viva La Revolucion“, reflects the styles of 1800’s European settlers of the Old West and while there are a couple pieces in the collection that are worth spending time discussing, one of the standouts is the “VAQUERO” blue jean.

Deciding to model the pants on European trousers rather than the cowboy jean that are much more common today, Mister Freedom has incorporated details such as side cinch straps, flared waistband, no back yoke, and an open bottom hem. The fabric used is a slubby left hand twill denim supplied by Sugar Cane Co. from Japan which is a blend of cotton and sugar cane fibers. The combination of the tough fabric with the more traditional trouser silhouette is something that even the most die-hard denimheads can appreciate and enjoy.

Mister Freedom consistently creates unique pieces that blend together old styles with modern touches and this jean is no exception. While they may not be for everybody, expect these to sell out quickly as they are made in highly limited quantities.

    Mr Freedoms products are impressive, VERY impressive. Love the jacket I have but have to sell a kidney for other kit. Owner is also very socially concsience about how products are made. Who cares if another companies products are hot but they employ children and have deplorable working conditions.

    I’m sorry, is it just me or do these look like Raw Mom jeans? That back pocket is horrible.

      Funny timing! We’ll actually be interviewing Christophe Loiron very soon. Any particular questions you’d like us to include?

      • http://www.facebook.com/johnsonlb Johnson Benjamin

        Oh wow. I am still exploring their site and google searching information on the brand. I am most interested in their special concept runs and how they go from design to production. If I understand it right, they do the small garment runs there in the shop themselves?

        Did I miss this interview? Or has it not come out yet?

          Wish we had this interview out sooner but unfortunately there seems to be a hold up on their end.

    I seriously can’t fathom paying Mr Freedom prices for Toyo / Sugar Cane jeans.
