PATTERN: An original MFSC pattern, inspired by early 1910’s -1920’s USN and US Coast Guard Melton wool Peacoats
FABRIC: Body: Coarse weave 16 oz indigo “black back denim” twill (indigo warp x black weft), aka “Midnight Twill”. 100% cotton. White ID selvedge. Woven in Japan, exclusive MFSC. Indigo bleeding to be expected and anticipated. The white core of the indigo yarn will surface with proper wear and will give amazing patina to the coat over time. All kinds of blues!
LINING: Inner full lining, 10 oz. plain weave indigo/natural white woven cloth, all cotton, woven in Japan
CLOSURE: 10 button front, USN style early “13 Star” buttons. Full front closure with collar up and throat latch for windy deck conditions.
POCKETS: Two outside slash “hand warmer” pockets and two flap pockets (all lined with 100% cotton wide wale corduroy). Inside chest pocket and “cigarette” pocket. The flaps are made from lighter 10 oz. “black back denim” with royal blue selvedge ID.
STITCHING: All cotton thread stitching, ‘oxydized faded’ black colour.
DETAILS: Owner’s own identification wide white sheeting neck label, ready for perso ID stenciling (a detail from early French military gear), back selvedge vent, concealed detachable throat latch under collar, ZigZag stand collar reinforcement stitching…
CLEANING: Can be hand rinsed with cold water and minimal soap, dry-cleanable. Extended wear and abuse recommended before washing is considered, to maximize patina over time.
SHRINKAGE: With full washing/drying (again, not recommended, fabric will ‘marble’ with strong machine wash-cycle), a FULL size shrinkage is expected.

PATTERN: An all original MFSC pattern, inspired by 1920’s-30’s military/uniform shirting.
FABRIC: 10 oz. Indigo warp/black weft twill (with royal blue selvedge ID), aka “MFSC midnight denim”, aka black back denim, aka ‘the bleeder’. Unsanforized
DETAILS: Metal military snaps, long chin strap, elbow reinforcement, double shoulder patch, yoke back, selvedge chambray side gussets, buttoned belly flap, triple snap wrists, indigo popeline/blue chambray facing, underarm chambray gussets, inside chest passport pocket…
WASHING: Please do not BOIL this one! We recommend wearing the shirt raw. You can spray it with water to get some shrinkage (full shrinkage is about a full size down), and wear it damp to mold to your body (no white undershirt!). Can be dry cleaned in the future.If you need to wash this shirt, cold water and very minimal soap, inside out. NO dryer. The reason for all this is to maximize the beauty of the fading that is guarenteed to happen with repeat wear.
