The Trailblazer is Mister Freedoms version of a shirt / jacket intended to be worn as a hiking garment. It's best described as a blend of vintage work shirts from the 30's and garments used by early California rock climbers in the 70s. The pattern is more or less a vintage work shirt with an updated fit and the addition of the two lower front pockets and the thick, dense orange brushed selvedge sateen fabric make one think about fabrics that was more common in the 60 / 70s than they are today.
One of our favorite details of this shirt is the mixed combination of buttons used, each of them in different models and in contrasting colors!
