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”

Inspired by oversized Zoot suits from the 1930s and 40s, Motiv have designed this softened suit jacket, with an unstructured form and relaxed silhouette to inspire a more casual air. Closing with just a single reverse mother-of-pearl button, the collar can be worn up with a second hidden button beneath the lapels. There are three bucket pockets on the outside of the jacket, with one more on the inside for extra storage. Soft and relaxed, it's a perfect casual piece with a distinguished silhouette and a lot of versatility re: dressing it up.

Motiv's Tussah Silk Broadcloth is an incredible fabric, sourced from one of the last remaining mills in China that exclusively produces tussah silk. Tussah silk is sometimes also called wild silk, being sourced from the cocoons of wild silk moths that live in forests throughout India and Southeast Asia, rather than cultivated from domesticated silk worms in a farm. Woven at a high density from irregular tussah yarns, the midnight silk broadcloth has a plush face with fluid drape and a gentle sheen. 

The irregularity of the individually woven yarns creates tonal and textural variation in both horizontal and vertical directions, giving an almost plaid-like impression at certain angles. Despite its relative thickness, the fabric breathes extremely well, keeping you cool and comfortable when temperatures rise. Not quite black or navy, the midnight color is an extremely dark blue that can be dressed up or down quite easily.

Fits true to size with a relaxed fit - size down for a more traditional fit. Dry clean only.
