The Sukajun Way

Fully Reversible Suka JacketThey are called Suka jackets and they were first created in Japan. They are simply awesome! It appears that the Japanese infatuation with American made apparel has led to the creation of some iconic products. One of the most popular and coveted apparels are Japanese made denim jeans. They carry the goodness of denim jeans that were made back in the US, in the 1950s. Many Japanese brands also use natural Indigo dye during the manufacturing process. These denim jeans are loved for their authenticity. There is one other special item that is at the very top of the list of collector items in the world of apparel, original Sukajun jackets.

Also called the Suka jackets, they are known by the western world as Souvenir jackets. Unlike denim jeans these jackets are not just another version of an American made garment. As a matter of fact, this was the result of the culmination of the Japanese penchant for Artwork and the love of the Americans for it. The birth of the Suka Jackets took place back in the late forties. The Second World War had ended and there were many American soldiers stationed in the Pacific region. During the post-war occupation exercise men of the American troop began having traditional Japanese style art onto their jackets. They consisted of, Dragons, Tigers and more. This was done to commemorate their stay in Japan. In a matter of months this became a huge trend in both Japan and in the US, upon the return of the troops back to the homeland. There was now a demand for Suka jackets.
