MotivMFG is headed by 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 various antique European manuals) with workwear production techniques. Constant research into garment production techniques around the world informs their design, with the goal of creating “recreations” rather than “reproductions”

The Envoy jacket is a minimalist robe jacket with a relaxed design featuring raglan sleeves, a stand collar, and two very deep and roomy front pockets. The garment features a paradoxical asymmetrical symmetry across the front and back, with a covered placket up the front and a full pleat down the back - the torso itself is open and unrestrictive, layering easily, but also wearing comfortably over just one other piece.

The body is slightly extended, really adding to the overall comfort and robe-like fit, but not so much as to get in the way or making sitting difficult. Inside, there's an additional breast pocket that you can use for storing a phone or small to medium sized wallet for extra security, and the two large "postman pockets" on the front both button close as well. The collar facings and cuffs are both trimmed in another tonal silk fabric, for a subtle but effective low-contrast detail.

The very latest in Motiv's exploration into Tussah Silk fabrics, the new Chinese Tussah Silk herringbone is particularly luxurious, being woven without the usual neps characteristic of Tussah Silk. Tussah silk is sometimes also called wild silk, being sourced from the cocoons of wild silk moths that live in forests throughout parts of India and Southeast Asia, rather than cultivated from domesticated silk worms in a farm. The cocoons are processed one at a time, being sterilized in boiling water before they're individually stretched out over a form to separate the silk filaments.

Woven from extra long filaments, the fabric is finished and sewn up completely into a garment before being dyed a deep and rich aubergine color. With a cool and slightly dry hand, the herringbone weave is exactly as soft and breathable as you'd expect it to be, resulting in an outstanding comfortable fabric from the moment you put it on. It features a subtle luster and an extremely bouncy drape - it's one of the most fluid and unique fabrics we've ever encountered, moving easily and dramatically before snapping back into shape.
