Japanese Exclusive/Irregular product

Ken Japanese TUXEDO(grey lining)

This category “Japanese exclusive/irregular product” is a showcase of non-regular products in my collection which seems to be sold in Japan market.

compare two Tuxedo jackets below. the left side is a regular product which has black full lining. the right side is a irregular product which full-lining is grey. this jacket is the same as regular jacket except for the grey lining. I’ve confirmed that this grey is not fading, grey thread is used on.

I found this Tuxedo outfit (including this grey lining jacket) at Japanese auctions. I am not sure if it is an original configuration.

Jacket with grey full lining/boutonniere on lapel/R label/1964 style dress shirt with no label/trousers with snap/cotton socks/corsage/black shoes. missing a bow tie and a cummerbund.

Regarding the Japanese specification of Ken, I’ve confirmed below items so far.

1:Almost the same as regular items, but with different some small point like buttons or lining (Dream Boat, Tuxedo)
2:The sewing pattern is the same but the fabric of another costume is used (Best Man trousers)-I also found a Tuxedo-shirt(panel) with a different costume’s fabric, but I don’t know if it’s a Japanese specification.
3:The sewing pattern is the same and another fabric(Japan only) is used(Here Comes The Groom tailcoat)
