Mister Freedom® Naval Chinos, Type No.266ac, mil-specs Khaki Chino Twill issue.
Fall 2016 mfsc Anniversary Collection
Made in Japan

A nod to our early collaborating days with Sugar Cane Co, specifically the “MFSC Naval Clothing Tailor” capsule collection of 2008, we are issuing a version of our original “Naval Chinos” this Fall. With a pattern inspired by 1940’s US Army chino trousers, this Ten Year Anniversary edition comes in two very distinct options, the recently-released indigo canvas version, and a version similar to the original issue, a long-awaited new khaki chino twill model. Please note that these are military-inspired chinos, a totally different pattern from our casual Sportsman chinos and dressier Continental trousers.

As we did with our 2008 original issue, we are mixing two types of cotton military chino twills, produced by our friends at Buzz Rickson’s, US Army, US Army Air Force, US Air Force, and US Navy vintage mil-specs replica experts. Both twills feature the same 8.2 Oz. weight, but contrast noticeably in color. Our original design approach in mixing them was to emanate wartime production crunch, when two different dye lots were at times cut and sewn into one production run. Vintage clothing aficionados will be familiar with such specimen, quite rare today.
Our ‘Naval Chinos’ also stand out from the contrasting navy blue stitching. With repeat wash/wear, these color contrasts will gradually fade into an attractive, unique and subtlety-nuanced blend.
One might consider our tricked-out colorful chinos ‘too weird’ to wear, but, if you’re reading this, chances are you are already dressed weirdaccording to the guy sitting next to you on the plane.

The MF® “Type MFSC No.266ac” Naval Chinos, Khaki Chino Twill issue, are designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.

Original mix of two dye-lot shades of period mil-specs khaki chino twills, 100% cotton, 8.2 Oz., milled in Japan for Buzz Rickson’s. The initial fabric sheen is due to the specific milling and finishing process, and will rapidly subside with normal wash/wear cycles.
Pocket bags and waist band are made from 100% cotton woven stripe ticking, milled in Japan.

The Type MFSC 266ac Naval Chinos in khaki twill come raw/unwashed/loomstate, and the fabric is pretty much sanforized.
We recommend an initial 30-40mn cold soak with occasional hand agitation, then spin dry cycle. Hang dry.
The tagged size roughly corresponds to sizing after this soaking process. I wear a comfortable Waist 32 in these chinos. No need to size up or down from your actual measured waist size.
Please note that, due to the use of 100% cotton stitching and 100% cotton pocketing, slight shrinkage, seam roping and torquing might be obtained with the use of hot water and normal washing machine wash cycle. The true intended fit and pattern of these trousers has been adjusted according to a cold water rinse and low-heat tumble dry process.

Our khaki Naval Chinos feature a vintage silhouette, mid rise, with somewhat of a classic leg, neither slim nor baggy.
Refer to chart for soaked/line dry measurements.


These trousers should be low maintenance. We recommend a normal wash cycle with cold or warm water and eco-friendly detergent. Turning the trousers inside out will help avoid marbling. Line dry.

Available RAW (unwashed)
28, 30, 32, 34, 36 and 38.
