This season Mister Freedoms collection is named Pioupiou and the inspiration behind the garments comes from what the French army wore during the first world war. The term "Piou Piou" was a nick name used to describe the French infantry troops back in the days. The clothes are inspired by vintage French military garb used in between the late 1800’s to the 1930’s, but as always when it comes to Mister Freedom these garments have been reinvented to make them easier to wear in a contemporary setting!
The Chemise M35 Indigo Linen Shirt is inspired by a French military shirt from the 30's. The model is a pull over type with a front expansion pleat that is created from the folding of the front fabric pice. The fit is wide, making the shirt comfortable and the indigo dyed linen fabric is a pleasure to wear. We can assure you that it will look and feel it's best after being used for quite some time, allowing the fabric to soften and to fade in a beautiful and unique way.
This shirt is raw/un-rinsed and will shrink when washed. The Mister Freedom recommendation for washing is a cold soak for about 30-40 minutes, with occasional hand agitation.
