Imperial Sartorial

I have nothing against the Japanese Imperial family, but I have always thought it peculiar that, for people who are supposed to be the “symbol of Japan,” frequently the clothing they have chosen is essentially the fashion worn by upper-crust British from a great many years ago (probably they dressed this way during the Meiji period and have not modernized because it’s “traditional”). I wonder if the new imperial family will continue this practice or update.

  1. The Japanese Emperor as an institution is as old as the Catholic Pope. The Catholic church is the only institution that survived the fall of the Roman Empire. Its leaders still walk around in Roman dresses. Would you like the Japanese imperial family to copy such behavior?
