Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The American Vector Bomber by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed to bridge vintage military jackets and modern tailoring. This outerwear garment is derived from a WWII Tanker Jacket that takes fit and detailing from aviator styles, recreated as a cleanly designed bomber in an anatomically tailored fit. A complicated articulated raglan sleeve with integrated diamond-shaped shoulder patches for reinforcement is combined with a pleated back shoulder to allow for movement in a design-centric approach to a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made from a 10 oz. Herringbone cloth and was developed exclusively for Motiv using Wild Tussah Silk, ethically harvested by allowing the silkworms to leave their cocoons before those fibers are boiled for spinning. Tussah silk is prized for its durability, luxurious drape, and broad temperature regulation. It allows styling versatility in all-day comfort amidst various climates when on reconnaissance in the city or flying to new style heights. This traditionally slubbed long-staple fiber has been refined to provide a luxurious texture, woven into a herringbone cloth that balances the dutiful with the distinguished and is painstakingly garment dyed to a warm charcoal with a brown-purple undertone. This American Vector Bomber is designed with a zipped and buttoned storm placket front and articulated ribbed stand collar, hem, and cuffs, allowing for outdoor versatility and functionality with elevated style. Paying homage to the originals with sophisticated finishing, this jacket is fully interlined and lined in a striped acetate for a luxuriously draped structure. It has oversized welt hand pockets with silk jacquard diamond-shaped trim and two interior snap pockets for comfortable and secure carrying. This piece is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like felled seams, bartack reinforcements throughout, and custom gunmetal finished zipper and cast metal buttons. 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.
