Hey Guys, how’s it going? I’m currently in Manchester and it’s just started snowing! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone, the fact that it’s nearly the end of November is just crazy. Christmas is right around the corner and I am no-where near ready. Although I do have some pretty exciting news that I can explain
to you guys soon. Anyway! My obsession for the past few months has been of the Sukajan Jacket or the ‘Souvenir’ Jacket. I’ve been searching for the perfect one, black and white (obviously) with preferably with dragon/tiger embroidery. When I tried to describe them to my friends they were like ‘ oh yeah baseball jackets’ and I was like no they’re different, I didn’t really know how to describe them but they’re basically a mix between an american baseball jacket and Japanese embroidery I found that originally they were created by American troops at the end of WWII, wanting Asian embroidery on jackets that represented colours from their division.
I think I have an obsession with them because even though I already have one I keep looking at more and more different types/styles, you can even get reversible ones!
Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend and let me know if you get or already have a Sukajan jacket! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
