The very much distinct embroidered style of the Sukajan was originally made for American soldiers deployed in Japan as a souvenir to bring back home – and ever since then, the style has evolved into a culture and fashion statement. Locally known as “Sukajan” which is Japanese for souvenir, it featured many kinds of embroidered characters – from dragons, to cherry blossoms, geishas, and even traditional Japanese maps. The Sukajan was often a jacket similar to the Amercan’s baseball jacket, but with it’s being of a fashion icon, it has been applied on many articles of clothing – as seen with New Era Japan’s latest collection of caps. Dubbed as the Sukajan series, this 9Forty Trucker Cap features Tigers as the embroidered character across the two front panels – the Trucker has a Black base throughout which has the Tigers icons standing right out. The New Era flag logo is done in White. View the entire collection over here at
