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.
These are a real pair of tailored trousers with a Hollywood waist, where the fabric of legs continues up to the top and is turned over to finish the waist. This eliminates the need for a separate waistband piece, creating a very comfortable fit. In addition, these feature a split waistband, allowing for size adjustments over time.
The fabric used for these trousers is a cavalry twill from Brisbane Moss, masters of woven cloth in the UK. It has a dry, abrasion resistant face with a lightly brushed inside for comfort.
The combination of the shape and fabric on the allow them to be worn casually or paired with a blazer (or the DB Reefer) for a smarter vibe. To give them a more relaxed vibe, we suggest engineer boots and a Western shirt. There's a little extra length in the hem allowance for a proper turned up cuff.
