At Motley, we make the uncomfortable but necessary changes. We don’t always do what the customer asks – we’d rather do what they need in order to succeed.

It’s in our heritage. The Motley is the outfit of the court jester, the only one who’s an outsider in the royal court of kings and queens. When the jester is wearing the motley, he’s allowed to speak his mind – without fear of losing his head.
