Garment Measurements | Virtual Size Chart


The Swiss Army Cargo Trouser by MotivMfg x Division Road is a high-rise, single-pleated pant with a roomy and relaxed top block and thigh that tapers to a moderate hem for a perfectly balanced, modern take on mid-20th century Swiss and German military and aeronautical utility pants, designed to be an inspirational piece in the Original Gentleman's wardrobe. This trouser is made from a 10 oz. Herringbone cloth and was developed exclusively for Motiv using Wild Tussah Silk, ethically harvested by allowing the silkworms to leave their cocoons before those fibers are boiled for spinning. Tussah silk is prized for its durability, luxurious drape, and broad temperature regulation. It allows styling versatility in all-day comfort amidst various climates when on reconnaissance in the city or trekking the outdoors. This traditionally slubbed long-staple fiber has been refined to provide a luxurious texture, woven into a herringbone cloth that balances the dutiful with the distinguished and is painstakingly garment dyed to a warm charcoal with a brown-purple undertone. Paying homage to the original with sophisticated finishing, this trouser is designed with a single pleat for an optimal fit with drape, featuring an adjustable waistband with an ingenious tab button front and concealed elastic back, complete with a zipped fly and top button front. These Swiss Army Cargo Trousers have design-focused utilitarian pocketing, including gusseted and angled side cargo pockets and a patch back pocket with button closures paired with slant front pockets for all the tools and accompaniments one needs. Finally, this pant is packed with superior bespoke and old-world detailing like an articulated back yoke and legs, cotton twill pocket bags and interior trim, felled seams, bartack reinforcements throughout, a finished tailor's hem for easy inseam alterations, and genuine horn buttons with a unique polished finish. 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.

MotivMfg runs true to traditional tailoring, and the Tussah Silk Swiss Army Cargo Trousers run true to size to our other MotivMfg trousers and small compared to our Swiss Army Cargos. Generally, we suggest taking 1 size up from your standard Swiss Army Cargo, or sizing to your Actual Waist Measurement (Body), which is typically 1-2 sizes larger than modern brand sizing.

We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart.
