Description

The French F-2 Fatigue Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road from the Officer Dress Uniform capsule collection is designed as a meeting point between dutiful mid-century European military garments and tailored outerwear pieces made for the future. This piece is derived from 1950's French military jackets, re-created in an anatomically tailored fit with an articulated shoulder, collar, and set-in sleeves in a heavy-weight fabric that will outlast any generation or future war, while providing a luxurious drape in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made in an 18 oz. Anthracite Belgium Linen Canvas Cloth that uses hearty 100% Organic European Flax fibers in a thick-yarned box weave to produce a dutiful and breathable fabric in a warm-weather piece that will perform in a variety of conditions. One of the best examples we've seen of Belgium's centuries old traditional linen production, this rare heavyweight fabric is yarn dyed with a white core and has been garment washed for a worn-in appeal and flexibility in an extremely durable material. This French F-2 Fatigue Jacket is designed with a concealed rolling button front placket with a storm-ready, button up notched collar to allow for outerwear versatility, function, and style in an unlined and finely finished structural piece with cotton twill trimming on the yoke and pockets. Paying homage to the originals with sophistication, this jacket has beautifully shaped and utilitarian pocketing with concealed buttoning, like welted flap chest pockets and patch flap front lower storm pockets that are gusseted to house plenty of modern armaments, along with functional design refinements like the articulated elbow patches that transform into a gusseted and buttoned cuff. Further, this jacket is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like flat felled seams, zigzag back collar stitching, bartack reinforcements throughout, and impressive custom burnished gun metal buttons cast in the shape of the plastic 50’s military originals. 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 present these exclusive patterns, adapted in every way as a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army, signified by a commemorative MotivMfg x DR capsule collection corozo button pin.
