(if you’ve just come from one of the other Charlotte school uniform posts, yes, this is essentially the same! I have made them into separate posts so that I can highlight the differences!)

The construction of the jacket is fairly simple. The body should be made of four pieces – two fronts and two backs joined down the middle.

The collar stands up in the mandarin style. The white edge is part of the collar, like perhaps an inner collar? Initially I just thought it was the shirt collar inside of it, but it’s actually together. See collar reference in gallery.

For front buttons, there are five silver ones. Generally the top button will always be unbuttoned. There are two silver buttons on either sleeve cuff. The cuff should be a little bit shorter than the shirt sleeve so the white shirt shows under the jacket slightly.

There is thin white (or maybe silver?) piping/edging down the front of the button placket. Very slim, just an accent piece.

On each side near the waist there is a flap pocket with a silver button. In addition, there is a slot pocket over the left side of the chest. Should be fairly high up as it looks higher than the sleevehole.

The total length is slightly past the waist – not long enough to restrict movement (i.e. running) but fairly long as noted by the proportion between pants and jacket.

SHIRT

His shirt is a basic white collared button-d0wn shirt with long sleeves. Very straight forward and available from pretty much any store that sells mens’ clothes. The top button is buttoned (unlike Yuu). The shirt is tucked into the pants.

PANTS

The pants are plain black slacks, neatly ironed into front and back creases.

SHOES

Can’t see his socks; they will be either black or white. Like all the other students, he wears brown loafers. They must be a school requirement.

ACCESSORIES

Takajo’s glasses have slim black frames. They look almost like the kind that’s invisible on the bottom edge as the top is definitely drawn thicker than the bottom. The lenses are symmetrical ovals.

WIG

Arda – raven or charcoal blue in a styled/cut Hansel, Magnum, or Derek. Lots of choices. Probably a fairly simple cut and style required is all.

(Got another favorite wig brand you’d like to recommend? Add in the comments! I use Arda for Cosbreaks because their website is simple for me to navigate and their color/style selection is very wide.)
