Did you know? The common school uniform for Japanese men was modeled after Prussian military uniform.
セーラー服 (sailor uniform), which Japanese girls wear, was modeled after the deck uniform of English sailors. It was first adopted as the uniform for naval academy for youths.
Japanese adopted the uniforms from Prussia and England. Don’t forget that Meiji government learned the Navy systems from England, and the Army systems from Germany.
School, Army and Society were part of the social systems.
