So a few weeks ago, when the crew at MFSC HQ teased a storage unit being found and some oldies surfacing, I figured it was just some stock from closed down retailers from a few years ago.. I had no clue it had my ultimate grail item...



Also, somehow I swooped in and snagged an original 189 CPO (pre liberty and OD edition) where it was really just a long utility shirt with snaps..



Both items are HUGE on me, and since I’m sure they were in non-climate controlled storage unit somewhere, the elements may have already “environmentally sanforized” them to some degree through humidity exposure, but I put both through a warm soak, some agitation and rinse + spin and hoping they work!

For fun.. pre soak fits lol



I’m actually excited to wear the 189 as a shirt - it’s only 6oz, but it bled a blue green indigo like crazy, so can’t wait to see how it evos!

I “may” have gotten the last pair.. at least the final pair from MFSC HQ.. I has been asking them for years if any had popped up, so when they teased the random lot on IG, I knew exactly what I was looking for haha

Well, the Shrunk... a ton! I haven’t seen this much shrink since a pair of Warehouse in 2009...

I believe the 5-8% disclaimer on the tag for sure

Denim in sanely stiff, and feels super beefy for 14oz. I could stand to lose a little more in the leg and length, but overall, these are great and the slightly lower rise than my chino riders does help with comfort when sitting.

Thanks @sabergirl and @Boyo - thrilled beyond belief to own a pair that fits me. I bought the midnight riders years ago and they didn't shrink at all, and were always super big on me, so I let them go. Glad to have the chinos and denim riders now!

Maybe one day a 36 in the midnights will show up :)

Love it @Appfaff.  I dig all the MF posts recently.  The midnight CPO is one of my favorite overshirts of all time.  Your posts remind me I need to post my HBD Appaloosa.

Thanks @summ3rhays - I'm honestly just reliving my 21/22 year old self now that I can actually acquire these things I lusted for when I was getting into denim.

A few items always stuck out to me... Bandit Photographer's Riders, Some Dude on Sufu's (I believe Seafinch?) IH 301s, and of course PeterRock's Heavy Flannel and 634s outfits.

Every few years, I kinda go back and try to stock up on some of those things I loved.
