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 Apothek jacket is the mid point between chore coat and blazer, not quite as formal or informal as either of its influences, but as versatile as either. A minimal reimagining of a turn-of-the-century shop clerk's jacket, it's got three handy external pockets for easy storage. A single internal pocket and the sleeve cuffs are lined in a striped 100% silk fabric, for that little pop of visual interest.

The fabric is a perfectly balanced linen/wool hopsack, produced by Marling & Evans in England, which delivers the very best of both materials in terms of warmth, softness, breathability, and drape. The scarlet color is not quite red, not quite orange, and pairs well with all manners of olives, indigos, and other neutrals. The whole thing closes up with tonally matched Trochus (it's a sea snail) shell buttons sitting behind a covered placket.

Fits true to size. Wash cold, hang dry.
