Our Sportsman Chinos and Continental Trousers feature similar design details, but differ fit-wise. While the top block is comparable on both models, the Sportsman Chinos are cut with a more generous 40s/50s-style leg, and the Continental Trousers have a slimmer leg profile. The choice is a matter of one’s personal style preferences and body type.

Our classic and versatile suiting patterns, to pair or wear individually, to color-match or mismatch, to dress up or down.

CL's Advice: These trousers are true-to-size, with a ‘forgiving’ waist (aka vanity size), adjustable via the rear cinch. Go for your usual size in mfsc pants, but consider that the full leg and higher rise will provide an old school vintage work pants silhouette.

With a generous inseam, the overlocked leg opening is left open to your cuffing preference. DIY with a regular single needle machine.


Machine wash on delicate, cold water, minimal eco-friendly detergent. Turn inside-out. Line dry only.

This fabric will develop an attractive patina over time, according to the owner’s activities, frequency of wear, and laundering choices.

This MF® garment is designed and manufactured in California by Mister Freedom®, in collaboration with Sugar Cane Co. 



The MF® CONTINENTAL Sportcoat and SPORTSMAN Chinos both come raw/unwashed. These garments are cut so that the measurements match the labeling AFTER an initial cold soak/line dry.
We recommend the usual protocol before wearing:

  • Cold soak in a tub for about 30-40mn, with occasional hand agitation.
  • Line dry, no heat dryer.

Jacket and pants are considered true-to size. Subtle puckering and roping of the material/stitching will result from the rinsing process, slightly altering the fit and drape, and will give the HBT fabric plenty “life” and character.
Please refer to sizing chart for post cold soak measurements.
At 5’7 and ~145 lbs, I opted for a comfortable size 38 Sportcoat and relaxed silhouette W30 in the Chinos.

Reach out to to tune-in sizing if needed.

Trousers hemming: After the initial soak/line-dry process, we recommend settling down on the final length after briefly wearing the pants (roll-cuffed) around the house a bit. Let the fabric crease and stretch, then decide on a proper classic leg break that works for you, pin up the hem, and proceed with cropping/hemming at your local tailor.
I went with a DIY blind (hand) stitch 1¼ inch hem.
For a classic period vibe, we recommend hemming and not “roll-up” cuffing.
