The French Rapide Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between mid-century European commute garments and tailored outerwear pieces made for the future. This jacket is derived from a vintage cycling style infused with elements of military overshirts, recreated in an anatomically tailored fit. The set-in front and articulated sleeves with a square back yoke and French pleat are borrowed from industrial-era workwear and finished with a belt back hem to allow for movement with a design-centric approach in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made in a heavy-duty 14 oz. Chocolate Brown Moleskin in 100% ring-spun cotton and garment overdyed in a two-stage process using reactive and low water dyes to produce a fabric that will patina and evolve to the wearer's shape in a resilient fabrication. From England’s signature corduroy and moleskin mill, Brisbane Moss®, this fabric was developed initially for work-wear applications during the British and French Industrial Revolutions. It was later adopted to produce durable and insulating outdoor and countryside garments. Paying homage to the originals and designed with a finished sophistication, this jacket has a point collar and rolling 5-button front placket with a darted chest aligned with wide welted lower hand pockets and integrated flap front patch chest pockets for large devices to allow for urban functionality and styling versatility. This jacket is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like zigzag back collar stitching, two interior buttoned chest patch pockets, pleated and buttoned cuffs, felled seams, and decorative bartack reinforcements throughout, complemented with the hallmark improvements of a cotton/Tencel blend herringbone twill half-lined body and custom vintage reproduced and finished genuine horn buttons. 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.
