Imperial Japanese Army officer's formal dress uniform tunic, trousers, and sash. The tunic is in excellent condition, all original buttons present, though a few bear minimal oxidation in places. Sleeve and collar insignia are firmly attached and excellent. Both epaulets are also present, lightly worn, though one cloth attaching loop is loose at one end and should be re-sewn. No mothing is apparent. Tails and tail buttons are fine. Quilted lining is excellent, bearing minimal wear at armpits. Brown and white sash and knots is very good, with slight oxidation to the two thin metal buckles. The trousers bear two very small moth nips in the wide beige vertical stripes and some wear at trouser bottoms (where they would meet the soldier's shoes), but are otherwise fine. A difficult uniform to find, especially in this condition.
