Dege & Skinner are British tailors that are commissioned to tailor clothing for royalty, with Queen Elizabeth II, the Sultan of Oman, and the King of Bahrain being their clients.
Their history of clothing royalty makes it fitting to help design an 864,000 yen ($8,070) recreation of Char Aznable’s military uniform. The all-wool uniform uses the same materials as the British royal guard’s iconic red jackets, which are also tailored by Dege & Skinner.
Three ultra-detailed recreations were created for the upcoming “Welcome to Zeon” event at Isetan’s Shinjuku department store. Dege & Skinner provided the fabric and design with the sewing and embroidery being handled by two Japanese companies.
Recreations of Char’s white leather gloves and boots were also commissioned, which cost 21,600 yen ($201) and 118,800 yen ($1,106) respectively.
The elaborated costumes will be on display at the Welcome to Zeon event, which runs from April 25 to May 6.
