Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The French Rapide Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between mid-century European commuter garments and tailored outerwear pieces made for the future. This jacket is derived from a vintage cycling style infused with elements of military overshirts, recreated in an anatomically tailored fit. The set-in front and articulated sleeves with a square back yoke and French pleat are borrowed from industrial-era workwear and finished with a belt back hem to allow for movement with a design-centric approach in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made from a 12 oz. Coal Twill Woolen Cloth milled by the storied Abraham Moon® using fine 100% British Lambswool Merino wool in a directional pattern with a brushed flannel finish, resulting in an incredibly durable fabric with immense drape and comfort. One of the few remaining vertical mills, Moon produces this special twill with the first shear of their own Merino sheep, which is spun into lightly dyed yarns and woven to create a tonally subtle, textured charcoal and black speckled palette. The soft yet hearty fabric is perfect for surveillance in the city or traversing the outdoors in all-day comfort amidst various climates. Paying homage to the originals and designed with sophisticated finishing, this jacket has a point collar and rolling 5-button front placket with a darted chest aligned with wide welted lower hand pockets and integrated flap front patch chest pockets for large devices to allow for urban functionality and styling versatility. This jacket is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like zigzag back collar stitching, two interior buttoned chest patch pockets, pleated and buttoned cuffs, felled seams, and decorative bartack reinforcements throughout, complemented with the hallmark improvements of a cotton ripstop half-lined body and genuine horn buttons with a unique matte finish. 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 exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
