This jacket is part of the Japanese Second World War 'Kokumin-fuku', or 'National Uniform', which the Japanese military introduced in the 1940s, based off the military uniforms of European armies. This jacket was issued to Japanese Navy personnel, used specifically by the Forward Landing Forces. It is crafted from a lightweight speckled cotton in a classic field jacket style, with two upper front button close pockets and two lower welt pockets, with a button down front. All the buttons are embossed with the Japanese Navy 'Anchor & Chrysanthemum' buttons.
The jacket is in good vintage condition considering the age is almost 80 years old with general signs of wear, discoloration and marks throughout. There are some moth nibbles to the fabric inside the back shoulder panel, but this can't be seen when worn. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
