Description

The MOTIV Capsule Collection French F-2 Fatigue Jacket by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as 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 an above-military-grade fabric that will outlast any generation or future war, providing a structured form in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary. This jacket is made in a 20 oz. Charcoal Covert Cloth Twill that uses steeply and tightly woven 100% British Worsted Wool yarns to produce an amazingly dense fabric resistant to weather and tearing. Featured in the V&A Museum for its deep ties to historic milling processes, Covert Cloth was originally created in the early 1900’s as a military grade riding wool twill weave, providing outdoor protection for officers and gentleman alike. This particular iteration of the fabric was produced by Scotland’s Lovat Mill from 1826, as a refined version of their production of military regimental tweeds with varied shades of grey, charcoal, and black tightly woven into this coal colored tank-like twill. 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, pockets, and gusseted button cuff for practical refinement. 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. 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 MOTIV collection corozo button pin.
