Japanese sukajan, also known as “souvenir jackets” or “souvenir sukajan,” are a type of jacket that originated in Japan and gained popularity in the 1940s and 1950s. They are characterized by their intricate embroidery, often depicting elaborate designs such as dragons, tigers, cherry blossoms, or other Japanese motifs.
Sukajan jackets were originally created by U.S. military personnel stationed in Japan after World War II as a way to commemorate their time in Japan. They would often commission local artisans to create custom jackets with embroidered designs that reflected Japanese culture.
This Jacket has a typical “Anego” Embroidery all-over, beautifully printed on the chest, arms and back. “Anego” is a Japanese term that can be translated as “older sister” or “big sister” in English. In Japanese culture, it is often used to refer to an older woman who is respected and admired for her maturity, experience, and wisdom. Anego is a term of endearment and respect, and it is often used to describe a woman who is older than the speaker or someone who is considered to be like an older sister figure.
In popular culture, the term “anego” has been used to depict a particular type of female character, typically portrayed as a strong, independent, and confident woman who exudes charisma and charm. Anego characters are often depicted as successful career women who are respected in their professional fields and are admired for their leadership skills, intelligence, and elegance. They are often seen as role models for younger women and are admired for their ability to navigate both their personal and professional lives with grace and poise.
