Actual Japanese Workwear

Check out these absolutely stunning Japanese firemen coats. Known as Hanten coats, these were worn by Japanese firefighters in the 19th century. At the time, the technology to spray water at a high-enough pressure hadn’t been invented yet, so Japanese men had to fight fires by creating firebreaks downwind. Doing so, however, put them in danger of catching on fire themselves, as hot embers can travel up to a mile. To make their coats more protective, they were continually doused in water. 

The symbols and designs you see are for several things. Some are just for decoration, of course, while some signal the fire crew that the wearer belonged to. Others are lucky symbols or refer to a heroic story, giving the wearer encouragement to be strong and courageous. 

You can see these coats in person (along with many other awesome things) at Shibui, a shop in New York City for Japanese antiques and collectibles. They’re moving at the end of September and are having a sale right now to lighten their load. Select items are discounted by up to 50%, including lots of boro fabrics, which is a kind of heavily patched and mended Japanese textile. You can see examples of boro here.

For those of us outside of NYC, Shibui has a Google+ page you can admire (they’ll take phone orders, if you’re interested). There’s also a book titled Haten and Happi, which is all about traditional Japanese work coats.

King Cheetah.

The king cheetah is a rare mutation of the cheetah characterized by a distinct fur pattern. The cause of this alternative coat pattern was found to be a mutation in the gene for transmembrane aminopeptidase Q, the same gene responsible for the striped ‘mackerel’  versus blotchy ‘classic’ patterning seen in tabby cats. The mutation is recessive and must be inherited from both parents for this pattern to appear, which is one reason why it is so rare.

High Waist & Pleats
Here’s another great example of how higher waisted trousers can give you nice proportions between your torso and legs, and how pleats can visually break up the expanse of fabric that sits on your hips and thighs. Ignore fashion writers who say that pleats should always be avoided, or that they’re only meant for heavier set men. There’s nothing wrong with pleats if the tailoring is done well, and you can find many good examples in Old Hollywood pictures from the 1930s through ’50s. Slim the legs down a touch, if that’s to your taste. 
That polo shirt, incidentally, was made by Ascot Chang and is currently being sold through The Armoury (where the model above, Nick, works). You could wear it underneath a sport coat for a more casual look. The collar and cuffs will give you the look of a dress shirt, while the half-placket and pique cotton will prevent you from looking like you just came from the office.
