    me, Rye and Whodini went to Mr Freedom over the weekend

    It's a huge store but kinda easy to miss, I'd never realized I'd driven by this place for years without ever noticing it. The interior looks like a museum for vintage work and military gear. (prices seem consistent for museum pieces as well, and are on the high side) They have tons of racks of coats, jeans, tshirts, shirts, trousers....all vintage, I'd say most of their wares are pre-58

    Interesting items:
    A french workers shirt from the 1800s...in AMAZING condition, almost immaculate.

    Used Sugarcane, Fullcount and Denime jeans....selling for as much as a new pair. Maybe they're rare and unavailable models?

    SuperBobo's head would explode in this store. I think his year's earnings would all go to Mr Freedom

    The Mr Freedom line that CottonDuck is modeling looked interesting...not anything I could incorporate into my daily shit but for the right guy it'd be the bees knees.

    I just made a call to "the people"...
    My advice is that if you want something and it's available, get it now, don't wait.
    The bag and jeans will definitely not be recut, the shirts might be, the jacket maybe.. but like i said, anything can happen, if you want something, grab it.

    In other words: it's pure costume.

    After checking out this stuff in person, I would completely disagree.

    It doesn't suit my wardrobe much, but I thought the pieces were cool and definitely wearable.

    I was interested in the foul weather jacket initially, but I didn't like the scratchy wool :[. The clasps on that jacket are super fun though.
