PATTERN: All original MFSC pattern and fit.

FABRIC: Heavy 100% cotton moleskine, the French choice of workwear and outdoor washable fabric since the 1800′s. Moleskine is a tightly woven twill, with a napped surface. The close weave makes this fabric almost windproof, warm, insulating and very durable. It performs much better than denim does, but is very expensive to mill. This 100% cotton moleskine is milled in Japan, to the specs of a 1900s swatch from our archives.

LINING: Full body lining with 100% cotton stripe MFSC ticking. Arms lining with lightweight all cotton MFSC stripe ticking.

BUTTONS: Original MFSC Corozo natural wood buttons. (aka "vegetable ivory", corozo buttons where an hi-end option for suiting from the 1900"s to 1940"s.)


WASHING: Hand wash with care (or very gentle wash cycle), cold water, no dryer. Wash the black moleskine option inside/out to avoid marbeling.
