Product Description & Reviews
An always trendy baseball silhouette with embroidered detailing. Vintage look and feel. Dry clean only. The roots of the Souvenir Jacket, or Sukajan in Japanese, can be traced back to American soldiers stationed in the Pacific Theater following the end of World War II. During the post-war occupation, American troops began getting traditional Japanese designs hand-stitched into the backs of their jackets to commemorate their time in Japan. Popular designs included Japanese (and Chinese) style dragons, cherry blossoms (floral) and trees. Other soldiers chose local artwork that ranged from traditional maps to Geisha girls to snakes. These jackets would often incorporate rayon and silk and, in some cases, were actually constructed from excess silk salvaged from military parachutes. These jackets were brought back to the United States as literal souvenirs and sometimes were purchased as gifts for family members and close friends. Other than the embroidered designs themselves, this style of jacket is defined by its cut, which is similar to a classic American baseball jacket. This style is reversible if you want to lose the embroidery for a night. -HYPEBEAST
