Original Taisho Japanese Police Officer White Uniform Tunic Jacket Breeches Set:
This summer white uniform set is very clean considering they are from Taisho era. A museum grade piece that can be added to your collection of Imperial Japan.
The Taisho tunic has stand collar, 4 slant double-welt pockets and saber vent inherited from police uniform of Meiji era. It has some details of a police officer’s uniform as shown in pictures, such as some string and loops on the collar and pocket, and one inside whistle pocket, etc. The breeches have two front pockets, one flap pocket at back and a reinforced area at crotch. It seems to me the front buttons, sleeve emblems and back buckle on breeches are replacement at later time.
The kanjis on the triangle marking inside right chest from top row are “Size No. 1”, “Issued in Taisho 15th Year” and “Police Station”.
This police uniform set is highly collectible for its condition, size, and being completed with breeches. It’s hard to maintain cleanliness of white uniform from almost 100 year ago. Usually vintage Japanese uniforms are very small, as the average build of Japanese before ww2 were 2 sizes smaller. This extra large uniform set in old time is about medium to large size of US currently, which is exceptionally rare. Most of summer uniform were completed with straight pants during Taisho era, which makes this set with breeches for ceremonial or horse-mounted occasions extremely rare. You will never see same beautiful set on or anywhere else for sale, if you miss it out here!
One of the buttons for suspender inside waist band is broken as shown in picture. A small area at right seat looks worn as shown in picture, but neither broken or ripped.
