Plateau Duffle Coat - Lovat Ribbed Wool Overcoating / Lead


Free USA Shipping on orders over $300


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”

Motiv's take on the classic Duffle Coat may be the very best we've seen. Cut with a full length body, the more traditional boxy fit has been slimmed down with raglan sleeves and reinforced shoulders, as well as a detachable hood and two large vents at the side for ease of movement. The end result is a much more elegant and handsome duffle coat with the versatility to be worn both formally and casually (as well as all the stuff in between).

Speaking of the hood, it features an attached face mask portion, inspired by Soviet era Afghanka hats, that can be tucked away and buttoned to the side of the hood, or worn down as a face covering when the weather gets unpleasant. The front of the jacket closes up with three angular loop and toggle fastenings, with handmade glazed ceramic toggles that will patina handsomely over time. 

The front of the jacket features two exceptionally roomy bucket pockets with flap closures, perfect for storing your phone, wallet, hands, keys, a canned beverage, energy bar, and mask (tested and confirmed by Elliot on February 27th, 2023). If that wasn't enough for you, there's an additional internal pocket too, for that extra precious cargo you want close to your heart.

Developed exclusively for Motiv by Scottish weaver Lovat Mills, this custom ultra heavy wool fabric (800g/m) is woven with a unique corded structure, utilizing heavy cheviot yarns, made from the wool of cheviot sheep (which is known for being thick and strong). This unique weave imbues the fabric with a 3D textured face, with a subtle stripe pattern and an impressively intricate texture when viewed up close.

Being so heavy, this fabric is highly wind and water resistant, holding up exceptionally well to all sorts of inclement weather. Being made entirely of wool, it's also quick drying, with remarkable insulation and a fantastic drape.

Fits true to size. Dry clean or spot clean only.
