Jelado Alaska Suka Jacket 5MB-7223 Black/OrangeClutch Cafe
Jelado's approach is always a little different, where most would produce a reproduction of the classic post war 'Japan' souvenir jackets of the 40's & 60's, they decide to produce the much harder to find 'Alaska' version.
Inspired by the earlier Japanese examples gone are the dragons & tigers instead being replaced by embroidered native motifs of wolves, walruses and eskimos. Made to the same fully reversible bomber jacket design, one side is made from a plush velveteen while the other is a silky orange satin rayon with black detailing. The knits are 100% wool and woven double sided to accent either side colourings with a YKK 'two-way' reversible zipper. 'The Land Of The Midnight Sun' refers to the perpetual sunlight which is experienced north of the artic circle.
Original examples of Alaska souvenir jackets are highly sought after being privately made for stationed servicemen in much smaller numbers. Jelado recaptures perfectly the style and playful design of these classic jackets which have a timeless flare to their style.
