This is a very vintage - perhaps antique? - linen kamishimo vest with three crests. While this style of vest was worn by samurai in the "olden days", this is more likely part of a costume. Historical costume parades, like Aoi Matsuri or Jidai Matsuri in Kyoto, are annual celebrations of Japanese history, and many of the participant groups would wear kamishimo as they marched.

This vest is linen, black, and is in good vintage condition. There are some signs of age, but it can be gently worn or would make an interesting decor piece.
