Mister Freedom "Randall" Review


New in Town
Hello all,

It has been a long time. I hope all is well. When I joined a few months ago, I had every intention of posting all the time, and then I took a new job. Now that I've had time to settle in, I thought I'd try to become a bit more active. Anyway, I thought I'd post some pictures of my new "project." Worn it every day since I've gotten it. The one day I didn't wear it, I set it out to "tan." Somehow it fell down on my gravel, got wet, then developed these nasty little marks in the leather. With wear, they faded slightly to the point where you cannot notice them. The only reason I mention this is that it changed my perspective on the jacket. If I had the nasty marks in the leather, why not wear it hard? Well, now it's blue from my jeans in places, black from working on things around the house, and I think there's even some ice cream from my kids. Okay, okay. That's from me, too.

You may be wondering about the jacket itself. You might have seen me in my campus jacket. I love that jacket. It's my first choice for "date night" jackets. It is, however, a tad short; it is also a little snug when buttoned. That's more of a "me issue," of course. And all that damn Halloween candy. This is jacket is also a 44 but is much roomier. The published measurements have it a 25 inches p2p, but mine is 24 right on the dot. One of the other cool aspects is the "branding." No, I don't mean the cool little flourishes that Mister Freedom does in their store or when shipping their products, I mean the actual "brand" that was on the horse. On mine, you can see an 8 and a 6. If you've even been intrigued by MF's leathers before, I'd have to say this rivals the campus, perhaps even beats it. Let me know if you'd like to see more pictures in the future. Also, I have gotten this bad boy wet when cleaning up the markings I described above, but I have not but any Pecards on it yet. Trying to wait until it really needs it.

Last thing, I don't know why I wasn't smiling in this picture. I'll go back and photoshop that one.

Thanks for sharing man, what a cool jacket! I was actually checking out that very one just the other day on the Mr. Freedom website and thinking that somehow I liked it a lot more than the campus jacket.

Love love this! I have the natural campus but now this is on my list.
Can’t believe how quickly you’ve got it to tan this jacket has only just been released. You must be living in that nice cali weather. Looks great on you! Thanks for sharing.

Great evo and write up. I can vouch that the Halloween candy is not just a you issue btw.

Looks great!.. I like the evo you have so far.
I was able to buy a natural campus in October, happy they now make a size 46. mine is coming along about the same as yours..smudge marks, indigo stains, water marks.. no ice cream but coffee.

Im tempted by the "Ringo" the black version of this one/ should be available soon

great evo, congrats and welcome, hope you post more evolution pics of it, even when new stain can be eye piercing overtime they will blend in and create unique patina, same with scratches new one look rough but after sometime they would heal and show just enough character in the leather, I haven't arrived at these level on my natural jacket, but I see these on my wallet and wristbands and hoping one day the jacket too will follow.
honestly the mid orange tan you're at now is the tone I want to fast forward into 1 or 2 steps darker. so good for you to be able to hold back conditioning, I hope you are rewarded with more natural looking tan, than the most of us who use obenauf or other to "cheat" through it (me included)
