The roots of the Souvenir Jacket, or Sukajan in Japanese, can be traced back to American soldiers stationed in the Pacific following the end of World War II During the post-war occupation, American troops began using traditional Japanese designs and hand-stitching them into the backs of their jackets to commemorate their time in Japan Popular designs included Japanese (and Chinese) style dragons, cherry blossoms and trees Some would also opt for artwork that could have ranged from local maps to Geisha girls These pieces would often use rayon and silk  

Drawing from the post-war American presence in Japan the TT14331 Sukajan jacket of the 40's through 60's has been beautifully reproduced by one of the best out there  

The body of the garment is cut from a unique acetate rayon, original to Tailor Toyo Their choice and design of fabric is aimed at  producing the most aesthetically vintage looking piece as possible Taken from their vast archive in Japan, TT are able to successfully create a garment steeped in post-WW2 history with a true authentic, vintage feel 

Sukajan jackets are steeped in history and each symbol has a meaning and were carefully chosen Snakes are a symbol of creation and skulls are a symbol of mortality and death The Skull/Dragon represents the cycle of life and the balance between creation and destruction A great piece of historical clothing that fits easily into everyday wear
