A collection for the bold, Mister Freedom bring in Japanese Aloha shirt masters, SUN SURF, for their latest eye-popping project. A limited edition run, the “ROCK’n’ROLL” range swaps Hawaiian prints for ’50s greaser graphics, three “Action Packed” models feature surfers, skydivers and racers across a black, red or white backdrop.

Part of the Toyo Enterprise group, makers of Buzz Rickson’s and Sugar Cane denim, SUN SURF products are unbeatable in both quality and authenticity. Licensed to produce a selection of ’40s and ’50s labels including “Duke Kahanamoku” and “Keoni of Hawaii” alongside their own brand, the company have earned a cult following worldwide. For this latest collaboration, they have produced a rayon/cotton blend fabric to create that essential weight and drape of the vintage original. Finished with Corozo wood buttons and chain stitched seams, each shirt comes packaged in an LP-inspired box decorated with original Mister Freedom artwork. One for the purists, grab the ultimate summer shirt at the MF website.
