Freewheeler charcoal Moleskin CPO jacket-shirt

When it comes to signature fabric, we usually hear about denim… When it comes Freewheelers, one of their most famous signature fabrics is their cotton moleskin, this amazing fabric is truly one of a kind!

The heavy weight moleskin fabric is very soft to the touch and has a subtle furry feeling. This special kind of fabric can only be created from vintage machines controlled by skilled craftsmen. The charcoal colour has been overdyed, with use you’ll see the fabric age to a soulful vintage look. The colour tone will become lighter and the furry texture will become enhanced!

The construction has a totally ‘bullet-proof’ appearance, the complicated detailing and precision of each chainstitch is unlike any other brand. If you look closely you’ll notice the FW have even used extra thick thread to increase the durability and to add extra character to the overall style. The extra thick buttons are also specially created for this shirt and are all individually hand stitched, a time consuming process that yields the best result!

Thanks to the heavy-weight fabric and construction, you can wear the shirt in summer as a jacket or as an undershirt in winter! If you are a fan of true craftsmanship this is a great opportunity to try something very special!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
