With a favorite store of mine in Berlin carrying the infamous and rare Mister Freedom line (Burg & Schild),  I was surprised to see that the Hollywood based brand had recently capped a collaboration with J. Crew to produce a limited number of their deck jacket.  This is a great direction for J. Crew following their entry into concept retail (their Liquor Store in NYC).  Details from men.style.com are as follows.

J.Crew has devoted itself in recent seasons to the atmospheric—the Liquor Store is equal parts stage set and retail space—so when the brand set its sights on creating a military jacket, no surprise that it went for broke on the details. Made in collaboration with the Hollywood-based vintage hound, designer, and retailer Mister Freedom, the Crew’s limited-edition (only seven made) deck jacket obsessively reimagines forties naval garb, boasting enough period details to satisfy even the most meticulous armchair ensign.
