Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The MotivMfg x DR French Draftsman Shirt is designed as a meeting point between dutiful industrial-era workwear shirting and tailored overshirts to act as a wardrobe staple for an Original Gentleman. This French Draftsman Shirt comes in a beautiful Rust brown, heavyweight Japanese 8.5 oz. Military-spec Flannel flipped on the reverse to provide a soft, brushed interior for comfort and exhibit the pronounced 2x2 directional twill for a hearty, clean, and consistent woven exterior in a robust military-inspired cloth that balances the dutiful with the distinguished. This new-classic button down is derived from early 20th-century factory workwear shirting and is designed to function as a base layer or overshirt for numerous dress-to-casual ensembles. Recreated in an anatomically tailored fit balanced between vintage and contemporary, this shirt has set-in sleeves, gathered back shoulder pleats, and a curved hem to be worn tucked or untucked. Paying homage to the originals with a finished sophistication, the Draftsman Shirt has a square chest pocket, an elongated point collar with hidden under-collar buttons, and buttoned barrel cuffs. This piece is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like a gusseted side seam panel, single and double needle construction, felled seams, bartack reinforcements throughout, and custom shell buttons for an authentic vintage aesthetic. 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.
