    Default Japanese winter tunic

    Hi, im looking at this tunic right now.
    I like the stamps and the design of the tunic, however it looks to new.
    It may very well be a minty example but that is always a big concern.

    I would love to have some opinions on it, if possible.

    I cannot speak to authenticity (though, it looks authentic to me); probably unissued as no one's name is inscribed. The label shows it to be a Number 6, manufactured in Showa 17 [1942], and maintained at the Hiroshima [Hiro] depot.

    This is an original winter work uniform. The winter combat uniform is made of wool, whereas this is cotton, and the working uniforms have reinforcing patches on the shoulders and arms as it was intended for labouring. The combat types dont have those. It appears in Mike Hewitts 'Uniforms and Equipment of the Imperial Japanese Army.' I have several original Japanese tunics and they are often in good condition, this is a good one.

    Me too, is this from eBay? There's a great seller from Tokyo that selling his huge collection of immaculate items. I was lucky to get a nice naval rising sun flag from him. I was outbid on all the tunics and caps,though.

    I remember reading somewhere that these work tunics and breeches were worn as combat uniform too as they were more easy to dry out than the woolen tunics . This was in Manchuria i think
