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”

Another silhouette of Motiv's outstanding shirt patterns, the Mikhail shirt is inspired by and named for pianist Mikhail Pletnev, cut with a narrow mandarin collar, covered placket, and full sleeves. The chest features two welted flap pockets reminiscent of midcentury Chinese workwear, while the back is cut extra long, with double pleats at the rear yoke for greater range of motion. The sleeves are cut extra wide, with gathering at the cuffs that looks good worn plain, bunched, and rolled up.

This lightweight linen broadcloth is woven using fine count yarns at a very high density, creating a fabric that is light and airy yet structured and draping. An ideal summer fabric, the 100% linen yarns breathe better than cotton does, wicking moisture and drying more quickly as well.

Fits true to size. Wash cold, hang dry.
