MotivMfg moves the heritage menswear aesthetic forward while remaining legible in the moment. Constant research into the garment making techniques around the world informs their design with the goal of creating “recreations” rather than “reproductions”. They walk this line while not sacrificing quality or craftsmanship in their product.

The team behind this is Samuel Wei, founder of Radiance Blue and the pioneer of the heritage market in China; and Daniel Gu, a third-generation tailor who combines old-world tailoring based on antique German manuals, with workwear production techniques.

The double-breasted reefer jacket sits between a peacoat and a blazer in construction and utility; and is considered the archetype of all double-breasted tailored jackets. 

The fabric used is custom for Motiv by Lovat Mill in Scotland, the home of tweed fabrics. It's a high-twist thorn-proof yarn that's been doubled up into hopsack structure to give it the structure of a fine tailoring cloth. In plain english: It's durable, drapes well, and looks incredible. 

The interior is a custom-printed tencel-cotton blend, also used to line the pockets; while the sleeves are lined in Bemberg. A higher closure point and convertible lapels, combined with the exclusive fabric create a DB jacket that can be worn as outwear as well as a blazer.
