Denim Vietnam Jacket" combines historical masterpieces with denim fabric
The Vietnamese jacket (commonly known as Viet-Jan) may be a bit of a geek for the general public, but it is actually extremely popular among Houston fans as a well-known item. The ``Denim His Vietnam Jacket'' that we introduce today is an updated version of Houston's hidden masterpiece "Vietnamese Jacket'' using denim fabric. A piece that can be worn in a wider range of situations, and can also be enjoyed as it changes over time. If this is the case, it will be easy to incorporate even those who are not familiar with the military.
What is “Vietnamese Jacket (commonly known as Viet Jean)”?
Previously, in an article introducing Sukajan, I explained about ``souvenir jackets'', and this ``Vietnamese jacket'' is actually a type of ``souvenir jacket.''
The word "souvenir" in "souvenir jacket" generally refers to souvenirs and souvenirs.
After World War II, American soldiers stationed around Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, used oriental patterns such as hawks, tigers, and dragons as souvenirs, or embroidered images of the units and bases to which they belonged, as souvenirs. It is said that the souvenir jacket was originally worn or purchased in Yokosuka (Yokosuka).
It is said that sukajan came to be called ``sukajan'' for short because it was made (embroidered) in Yokosuka, or because it often had sky dragons embroidered on it.
So, what about “Vietjan”? As those with good intuition may already know, it is called a ``Vietnamese jacket'' because it is a ``souvenir jacket'' that was created during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s.
The big difference between ``Sukajan'' and ``Vietjane'' is that ``Vietjana'' also uses materials such as parachute fabric. In the vintage market, this parachute fabric called ``Vietjian'' is very popular and is traded at a fairly high price.
In addition, many ``Sukajan'' designs have no collar and are ribbed, while ``Vietjana'' jackets, on the other hand, often have collared designs.
Which one you choose, ``Sukajan'' or ``Vietjan'', depends on your preference.

I will introduce this time
What is the charm of “Denim Vietnam Jacket”?
In fact, ``Houston'' also sells a ``Vietnamese Jacket'' that uses parachute fabric and is a faithful reproduction of the real thing, but this time we will be introducing an updated model that uses denim as the material.
Made of exquisitely thick (thin) denim fabric of 11 ounces, it retains the unique silhouette and light comfort of the Vietnam Jumper.
The denim is available in two colors: "Indigo", which is dark blue, and "Vintage Wash", which expresses a vintage texture. Indigo is for people who want to enjoy changes over time from scratch. "Vintage wash" is recommended for those who want to enjoy the finest texture from the beginning.
The embroidery on both chests, arms, and back faithfully recreates the atmosphere of the embroidery of the time.
By using denim material for the body, it is easy to incorporate into a wider range of coordinations.
