SOLD. Rare and marvelous reversible sukajan with shirt collar and Tokyo zipper. Circa 1950s-60s. There is no info, dates, or locations on the jacket to indicate the owner or tours.
Please note the cuffs are not original, they were altered into a kimono style because the fitted cuffs disintegrated. The result is quite beautiful.
The zipper says "TTS Tokyo" and fully functional.
Material is a synthetic satin I believe.
I have not washed this garment for fear of color-run.
18" shoulder to cuff
16.5" pit to cuff
22" total length
