The English Dress Hunt Vest by MotivMfg x Division Road from the Royal Cavalry Regiment capsule collection is designed as a meeting point between tailored officer riding and dutiful industrial era workwear vests, perfectly balanced in design to be a wardrobe staple for an original gentleman. This piece is derived from vest patterns dating back to the Victorian era, re-designed with an anatomically tailored and functional fit, curved front hem, split side seam, darted back, and cinch buckle back waist in a design perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This vest is made from an 18 oz. Anthracite Thornproof Hopsack Woolen Cloth that uses highly twisted 100% British Worsted Wool yarns in a double basketweave pattern to produce an amazingly durable fabric with a natural flexibility that is weather and tear resistant, with the ability to self repair when abraded. Thornproof tweeds have been used for hunting and riding woolens for over a century, providing outdoor protection for officers and gentleman alike. This particular iteration of the fabric was produced by Scotland’s Lovat Mill from 1826, as an exclusive development for MotivMfg in a refined version based on their production of military regimental tweeds with varied shades of grey, charcoal, and black woven into this neo-industrial, coal-colored woolen. The English Dress Hunt Vest is designed with a non-collar 5-button front to allow for utilitarian versatility and function in a traditional waist coat style that is fully finished with a Tencel-cotton lined body for a structured drape with mobility. Paying homage to the originals with sophistication, this vest has beautifully shaped and utilitarian welt front pocketing and is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing, bartack reinforcements throughout, and genuine ebony horn buttons that have been sanded for a unique vintage 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 completely exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
