Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The English Air Force Sidcot Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between vintage English Royal Air Force flight jackets and modern tailored outerwear pieces made for the future. This jacket is derived from an early 20th-century aviator style infused with elements of leather car coats from the 1930s, recreated in an anatomically tailored fit. Articulated set-in sleeves and a fully pleated back finished with buckle cinch waist tabs allow for a clean form and complete mobility in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made from full-weight European Horsehide that is vegetable-tanned to a custom recipe for a natural matte finish and grain texture, then hand-oiled for pliability. This leather will evolve over a lifetime with a sophisticated, layered patina in shades of brown and a natural matte finish, revealing the unique grain characteristics. This Sidcot Horsehide Leather Jacket has an architecturally designed asymmetrical RIRI® zipped front integrated into a snapped storm collar that lays down beautifully and is fully lined in the body with a British Shetland Wool Flannel combined with quilted Bemberg lined sleeves, completed with adjustable snap-tab wool gusseted cuffs for a finely finished garment with considered detailing elevated for function and style. Paying homage to the originals with sophistication, this jacket has perfectly proportioned and shaped pocketing with a device-ready gusseted snap flap patch chest pocket and lower wide welt fluted hand pockets, paired with interior pocketing for concealed carrying and keepsakes, including a welted flap chest pocket with button closure and a vertical zipped pocket. This piece is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like a curved front hem, rolled seams, wool trim lining throughout, and custom patterned military spec brass snaps and buckles with a matte zinc vintage 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 completely exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
