This is a vintage kimono jacket, called a haori, made for a man. The lining of men's haori jackets often depict a scene or motif that was of special interest to the original owner.

The lining of this man's kimono jacket features a pair of large fan shapes, each filled with what we imagine are two views of a small rural village.  One is a close up of a small hut (perhaps a tea house) next to a bridge; the other is a landscape view of rooftops and a pagoda in the distance. Perhaps the scene represents a long journey home, with the teahouse as a last rest stop along the way.

There is a stiched repair on the front of the lining on the right sleeve as well as a worn area on the same side, lower lining - see last photo - neither of which would show if displayed from the back, nor do they impact the "wearability" of the haori.

The original hang tag from the Daimaru Department Store is sewn to the inside collar.  And a tachibana ("orange blossom") family crest was stitched at the back of the neck, suggesting this kimono jacket was intended to be worn to a semi-formal event where representing his family was expected.

We display these haori inside out to feature the lining when it is unique. All of the stitching is hidden, so these jackets can normally be displayed or worn (in the West, at least) either way.

If you need a display rod to hang your purchase, we offer 60" wooden rods in four colors - see tab below.

See video below for how haori are worn these days.
