Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The French Air Force Zephyr Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between vintage French Air Force flight and motorcycle jackets to present a tailored outerwear piece made for the future. This jacket is derived from WWII French aviator pieces infused with elements of motorcycle dispatch coats from the 1920s-30s, recreated in an anatomically tailored fit. Articulated set-in sleeves and a fully pleated back finished with a curved adjustable tab waist provide a clean, tailored fit with full mobility in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made with a custom vegetable-tanned recipe using French Lambskins glazed with waxes to create a smooth satin finish with a color-rich and grain-heavy aesthetic. These flexible and durable full-weight lambskins will evolve over a lifetime with a dramatically layered patina of color and finish. This Zephyr Lambskin Jacket has an architecturally designed two-way asymmetrical zipped front with a notch collar and rolling lapel that transitions to a storm flap with snap closure and is half lined in the body with a Cotton twill combined with Bemberg lined sleeves 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 an oversized dispatch-inspired gusseted snap-flap patch pocket and lower welted hand pockets and is completed with adjustable snap-tab pleated cuffs. This piece is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like a curved hem, zigzag back collar stitching, felled and trimmed seams, custom military-spec zinc snaps, and a nickel zipper with 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 exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
