Jipijapa Kaga jersey blazer

October 26, 2012

Here’s yet another great bit of kit from Japan I can find very little about, apart from Maps have it and it’s ace. It’s by Jipijapa Kaga designed and it’s a three-button (well four if you count the one under the lapel), single breasted blazer in grey flannel. That much I do know (well see).

It’s also chock-a-block with details – from the differing button styles, to the contrasting under collar felting, asymmetric elbow patches, rear center vent and herringbone cotton lining there’s loads to take in visually. The most striking feature though must be the pockets – instead of being stitched straight onto the outer fabric, this is instead cut out and the pocket stitched underneath.

It’s a great touch and makes the blazer look totally different to everything else out there. With all of the other details it shows a level of care and attention we seldom see outside of Japan, and it’s especially impressive that everything is kept subtle and low key in the process. A great piece for sure and one that you’ll probably never see. Still nice though…

If you’re interested in it and can read Japanese you can find more information on it here: Jipijapa Kaga jersey blazer.

    Them pockets are a bit tasty & so’s the rest of the detailing. Shame we’ll never see it over here.
