Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The French Work Trouser by MotivMfg x Division Road is a high-rise, single-pleated pant with a roomy top block and thigh that tapers to a moderate hem and a clean break. This tailored, modern take on straight-leg workwear trousers from the early 20th century is perfectly balanced in design to be a wardrobe staple for an Original Gentleman. This trouser is made from an 8 oz. Pure Belgium Linen cloth and was exclusively developed for Motiv with Shenzhen’s best linen weavers to replicate a fine stripe inspired by early industrial-era workwear. This special and limited fabric uses high-twist slub yarns dyed in a traditional délavé process, woven as a twill into a softly textured stripe like a Bedford corduroy and enzyme washed to provide a subtle patina unique to antique linen in a cloth with beautiful drape and luxurious finish. Paying homage to the original with a finished sophistication, this trouser is designed with a single knife pleat for optimal fit and drape. It is given a clean button front with large tacked belt loops that serve as vintage elements with modern refinement. The French Work Trouser is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like slant front pockets, workwear-inspired patch back pockets, a darted back yoke, zigzag bartack reinforcements throughout, and a genuine mother of pearl top button paired with a matte horn button front fly. 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.
