The iconic ‘Sukajan’ or ‘Souvenir’ jacket dates back almost 60 years ago.
It all started in Yokosuka, the mouth of Tokyo bay which was an important military port for American troops in WWII.
Towards the end of the war foreign troops wanted to have souvenirs of their foreign assignment to bring back home.
They had tailors embroider the map of Japan and other various oriental symbols on their jackets as remembrance of their posts and services in the war.
Tailor Toyo are still known and respected as one of the original and best producers of the iconic ‘Souvenir’ jacket.
