Satin Emroidered Sukajan Reversible Bomber Jacket$550.00
Amazing example of a souvenier jacket, or suakajan, which were first made post WW2 in Japan. This one is from after the Korean war, (mid 1950's), and was brought to Ohio as a souvenir by an American soldier. This jacket has a double-sided metal zipper and is fully reversable. The green and yellow side features tigers heads on the front chest and a map of Korea showing the 38th parallel, majour Korean cities, a dragon, and tiger. The reverse side is a rich blue with pink accents, having snow capped mountains with pink trees in the foreground on either side of the chest. The back of the blue side shows a scene of two men and a horse with buildings in the background. I have not been able to find this motif on other sukajans of this era/style.
