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 ultimate comfort/casual trouser, the Skyliners are inspired by WWII flight pants, with an abrasion-resistant fabric through the seat and an insulating soft fabric along the front. With two front and two rear pockets, it's an upgrade over the usual sweatpants - but still features an elasticated waistband with an internal drawstring to ensure a comfortable and optimal fit at all times. The fit is slightly exaggerated, with a medium high rise, roomy top block, and a dramatic taper below the knee to an elasticated cuff.

As mentioned above, it's made from two different fabrics - the first, of which is a steel gray nylon weather cloth, a dense nylon/cotton blend with a tight weave and thin waterproof finishing layer. The second fabric is a teal jersey fabric made from a blend of 55% cotton and 45% wool yarns, where the surface is primarily cotton and the reverse side is primarily a brushed wool pile. After looming, the fabric is shrunk to tighten up the knit and imbue the fabric with a subtly irregular texture throughout.

The end result is as if your favorite pair of sweatpants were somehow merged with a bomber jacket. Extremely comfortable, warm, and sturdy, these may very well be the ultimate travel pants, but probably fare no worse if you're just wearing them around the house.
