THE LAUNCH: MISTER FREEDOM

What does a popular vintage store know about making clothes? If it's Hollywood's Mister Freedom, a whole lot. The West Coast emporium recently teamed up with Japan-based Sugar Cane Co., and the result is MFSC Naval Clothing Tailor.

What does a popular vintage store know about making clothes? If it's Hollywood's Mister Freedom, a whole lot. The West Coast emporium recently teamed up with Japan-based Sugar Cane Co., and the result is MFSC Naval Clothing Tailor. The name may be clunky, but the clothes, inspired by a fictitious naval merchant, are anything but. For winter, Mister Freedom owner/designer Christophe Loiron has put together a kind of high-seas survival kit: reengineered scarves with frayed edges, dark-denim workman-inspired trousers, rumpled chambray shirts, and thick wool jackets with hook closures and blanket linings. Rugged and utilitarian, these clothes, which are selling out at places like J. Crew, look like they come with a built-in history. Katie Hintz
