MotivMFG is Samuel Wei, founder of Radiance Blue and the pioneer of the heritage market in China; and Daniel Gu, a third-generation tailor and designer. Together they combine old-world tailoring from antique German manuals with workwear production techniques. Constant research into the garment making techniques around the world informs their design with the goal of creating “recreations” rather than “reproductions”

The Work Sack Jacket was inspired by the highly functional and stylish worker's jackets of the 1920s. Usually made from hard-wearing materials and cut into anatomical, tailored fits, Motiv's version is no exception, using a heavyweight custom moleskin and some very subtle and effective shaping.

Cut into a four-button stance, the lapels hide a fifth button, which can be done up to remove the labels and raise the collar. Three welted pockets with flaps can be found across the front of the jacket, with another three more on the inside, so you have plenty of space to carry things. The lining is printed with the first ever Lunar map, originally illustrated by German astronomer J.F.J. Schmidt.

The fabric is a heavyweight (700g) ultra high quality moleskin fabric from Brisbane Moss in the UK. Brisbane Moss produces some of the very best, if not the best corduroy and moleskin in the world, with this batch being no exception. Remarkably soft and wind resistant, the tightly woven moleskin breaks in quickly, taking the shape of the wearer's body with little effort.

After finishing, the fabric was given a garment overdye, which will gradually fade over time, leading to a unique and highly varied patina with immense tonal depth. The long pile fabric also features a remarkable wooly texture that is best viewed up close.

Fits true to size. Wash cold and hang dry, or dry clean.
