The souvenir jacket, also know as the Sukajan in Japan, is an embroidered, decorated, lightweight bomber jacket that originated a the Yokosuka base camp in Japan during WWII, often wore two-tone baseball jackets that they had brought from home while off-duty. The service men and women would customize their clothing to commemorate their time in the Pacific by commissioning Japanese tailors to embroider Asian motifs on them. They would often personalize their jackets with places they were stationed or visited or traditional symbols like dragos to bring home as a literal souvenir.
