Here is another jacket of this type. There are quite a few of these with Chinese dealers at the moment, and I took the opportunity to ask them where they came from - they are unanimous that they come from Yunnan, but vague about which group made them (most say Miao, but that's the default reply for most dealers). This one has seen some use, but age difficult to determine.

Like the others who posted these, I love them. Very strong and very sharp design. Would have looked good on 1980s synth-rock stars (Duran Duran et al)

just spotted this .. here is a jacket and skirt shown in the book "Minority Nationalities' Costumes and Ornaments In Yunnan by Li Kun Sheng (ISBN 7-80586-845-X). It is described as "Zhuang" minority, from "Guang Nan", which is in the Wenshan Zhuang-Miao autonomous district in south-eastern Yunnan. The jacket shape is exactly consistent.
