Inspired by early french work wear gear, the first installment of the MFSC Apache collection is a their version of a french worker"s coat. Mister Freedom has combined elements of several 1900"s to 1940"s pieces to make the veste ouvrier.

DETAILS:

  • Original slanted button holes, to keep straight vertical closure.
  • Inside white cotton twill pocket backing, to reinforce pocket top edges.
  • Concealed chest pocket, with flap covering the MFSC woven label (NO visible branding/logo, so you don"t feel like a billboard").
  • Cinch back belt, with original french NOS metal sharp-prong buckle (DISCLAIMER: guaranteed to mess up your car seat, but we figured they have been around on battle fileds and in factories since the 1840"s, so we"re taking the risk in 2011"). The buckle is removable and you can switch to one that fits your needs.
  • Concealed chin strap.
