Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The French Work Trouser by MotivMfg x Division Road is a high rise single pleated pant with a roomy top block and thigh that tapers to a moderate hem and a clean break for a tailored, modern take on straight leg workwear trousers from the early 20th century that's perfectly balanced in design to be a wardrobe staple for an original gentleman. This trouser is produced in a 10 oz. Japanese Serge Twill from an Osaka Mill that focuses on sustainable production while using extremely high quality 100% Cotton raw natural fibers, refined yarns, and deeply saturated dyeing. The military inspired serge twill replicates the specifications of traditional French workwear cloths that used the same yarn weight and type for warp and weft in a stepped twill to produce a durable and consistent cloth with a slight sheen that will subtly dull and patina while retaining its shape to be better than the originals by a long shot. Designed with a single knife pleat for optimal fit and drape, a clean button front and large tacked belt loops serve as vintage elements with modern refinements. These French Work Trousers are packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like slant front pockets, workwear inspired patch back pockets, a darted back yoke, zigzag bartack reinforcements throughout, and custom burnished gun metal buttons cast in the shape of the plastic 50’s military originals. MotivMfg has re-established a pattern-to-bespoke garment, one-roof workshop in Beijing with the ethos, process, techniques, and materials of Savile Row to produce historically informed garments in styles and production methods lost by the west. We are honored to partner with MotivMfg to offer completely exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
