This September, the Japanese company Cospa is set to release a Sukajan featuring a Shiba Inu, inspired by the anime Sekai no Owari ni Shiba Inu to ("At the End of the World with a Shiba Inu"). This jacket is designed for both boys and girls, although one might assume it primarily appeals to the latter.
The Sukajan, or souvenir jacket, has its roots in Yokosuka, Japan shortly after World War II. American soldiers stationed at the local military base would request their jackets to be embroidered with traditional Japanese patterns featuring dragons, carps, and the like. The jackets were typically made from parachute silk or inexpensive silk, and in modern times, synthetic materials are often used. As a result, Sukajan jackets possess a unique aesthetic that's simultaneously modest and luxurious, reflecting their considerable value.
