Description

The Swiss Army Officer Coat by MotivMfg x Division Road is designed as a meeting point between WWI officer coats and modern tailored outerwear pieces made for the future. This coat is derived from 1920's Swiss and Eastern European military overcoats, re-created in an anatomically tailored fit with a raglan sleeve and a center quad back pleat to allow for movement with a design-centric approach and buttoned tab to adjust the drape in a vintage-styled fabric that will naturally outlast any generation or future war. Providing a substantial form in a cut perfectly balanced between vintage and contemporary, this piece is made in a 22 oz. Box Weave Woolen that uses completely undyed, natural 100% British wool in varying shades of light brown, which is woven with thick yarn to provide immense movement and flexibility in a hefty fabric. From one of England’s oldest mills dating to 1782, Marling & Evans®, this tweed has a durable and pronounced texture while remaining free of chemicals and is only processed in a simple soap wash to retain the natural oils of the wool for weather resistance, a soft hand, and finished feel. This Swiss Army Coat is designed with a rolling 4-button front and buttoned notched collar to combat weather with styling and functional versatility. Constructed with a hand padded and canvased body for a structured shape with optimal drape along with being fully lined with washed cotton and a fine corduroy body along with bemberg sleeves resulting in a comfortable winter coat with practical refinement. Paying homage to the originals with a finished sophistication, this coat has a lower front button storm tab and center vent, adjustable tab button cuffs, and beautifully shaped utilitarian pocketing with a deep curved buttoned front welt pockets and a buttoned pass through to access the interior in stormy or cold conditions along with an interior buttoned pocket for carrying small armaments. Further, this coat is packed with superior bespoke and old world detailing like taped seams, zigzag back collar stitching, bartack reinforcements throughout, and impressively custom, genuine white horn buttons that have been burnt to a golden tan with an irregular finish to replicate vintage originals in a fresh way. 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.
