A splendid example of the uniform of a Captain of the Imperial Japanese Army of World War II, comprised of his custom made tunic, the matching tailored breeches, and his named officer's field cap. The uniform and cap are constructed of a very high quality olive green wool. The jacket collar displays a matching pair of Captain's collar insignia. The uniform is in exceptionally fine condition, showing little evidence of wear. The jacket has gilt buttons and a side opening for wear of the Shin Gunto sword. The buttons do show some signs of age, with some flaking of the gilt finish from the passage of time. The matching breeches are, like the jacket, in extremely fine condition. The officer's field cap is in overall very good condition and appearance. It does show wear to the interior and there is some light scattered tracking a a few small holes, none of which are particularly distracting at all. A gold bullion Army star is sewn to the front, and the leather chin strap is retained by gilt buttons bearing the cherry blossom design as worn by officers. The name of the owner is embroidered in kanji on the interior of his field cap, with the officer's name being "Sawada". Overall a very impressive and complete uniform set for an Imperial Army officer, showing only light use or signs of age.
