The French Shipyard Type-1 Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between dutiful industrial era workwear blousons and maritime outerwear, made for the future. This jacket is made from a 14 oz. Japanese Mini Herringbone Twill Selvedge Denim that uses various shades of sulfur dyed black warp and grey weft yarns in a broken twill weave that creates a textured and tonal traditional dress pattern in this durable, 100% Cotton denim. This exclusive to MotivMfg fabric development will evolve beautifully through heavy wear as the black yarns fade to grey and further reveal the intricate, woven pattern while maintaining a structure that will mold to the body and patina with substantial character. The Shipyard Type-1 is derived from early 20th century French dock and naval pieces, re-created in an anatomically tailored fit with set-in front and articulated sleeves and a split back yoke that combines with a knife pleated and cinched buckle back borrowed from industrial era workwear, allowing for movement with a design-centric approach in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. Paying homage to the originals and designed with a finished sophistication, this jacket has a pleated chest creating two large device pockets that integrate into the gusseted lower hand pockets, a button front placket with a rolling diamond shaped collar with button closure to combat weather while offering styling versatility. Further, this jacket is packed with superior bespoke and old world detailing like a curved hem, tab button cuffs, felled seams, selvedge line reveals on the placket, cuffs, and banded hem, decorative bartack reinforcements throughout, and 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 partner with MotivMfg to offer completely exclusive collaborations for a new and timeless uniform for the Division Road Army.
