For the past couple of years I had been on the hunt for a vintage souvenir jacket, and had even debated splurging on a very cool version by United Bamboo I found while shopping in New York over a year ago. But, I decided to save my dollars and continue my search in vintage stores. A few months ago while I was in San Francisco on a vintage rampage, I spotted one at a favorite store and I knew it was just for me. Even better was that it was deadstock and the owner had been sitting on a few of them; purchases made long ago on a sourcing trip abroad. It is one of my favorite purchases and I wear it often, especially since it’s reversible – one side with an embroidered dragon and the other with an embroidered tiger’s face and Japan. I love it so.
