    Additional Information
    One must bear in mind that most are vintage items, which I strive to describe accurately and honestly. Most are in excellent vintage condition and therefore look virtually new but all are vintage, even the unused garments. Only a few smell of mothballs or a touch of vintage mustiness but most do not. This can be aired out and can be speeded up by tumble drying the dry garment at warm, but it should be put in a pillowcase in the dryer. I have also had success at removing it by turning garments inside out and spraying very lightly with Oust, then letting them hang for a couple of days, but you do this at your own risk, as I canít guarantee it wonít damage some fabrics. I found Oust to be much better at it than Febreze, even though Febreze is intended for some fabrics and Oust is an air freshener. I usually mention any mothball or musty smell, if one does smell of it, but one must bear it in mind it is a possibility, even of not stated in the description, whenever buying vintage and antique textiles.
    When it comes to colour, please be aware that all monitors display colour slightly differently, so colour in photos is purely a guideline, as I can't foresee how your monitor will display it. While I sometimes try to describe colour, a description often conjures up one colour to one person but may suggest a different shade to another, so, again, any colour description is just a guide to the colour.

    Japanese Haori Kimono Jackets - The Stylish, Japanese, Easy-Wear Option

    Japan's Secret Treasure

    A haori kimono jacket is an exquisite, easy to wear, traditional Japanese jacket that looks wonderful worn either casually with jeans or dressed up with evening wear. It's a long Japanese jacket, with deep, kimono style, swinging sleeves; always in lovely fabrics, often with lavish designs on the back. Men's haori have the sleeves attached most of the way down the body, like their kimonos do, and tend to be plainer on the outside than women's ones but men's often have exquisite designs on the lining. Haori kimono jackets, unlike kimonos, do not need a sash or obi; they are either worn open or loosely fastened at centre front with a himo tie but, although the Japanese don't wear them with a sash, they also look fabulous cinched in at the waist with a belt. Haori kimono jackets mix perfectly with western world style clothing, so are a great way of adding that touch of Japan to your wardrobe.

    Haoris seem to be a well kept Japanese secret. We, over here in the West, all know about their lovely kimonos but few have ever even heard of haoris and it was long after I started my kimono collecting that I discovered these jackets that the Japanese sometimes wear on top of their kimonos.

    I was focused only on kimonos, but eventually I bought a haori, just to see what it was like. From then on I was hooked. I love that I can now wear something so clearly Japanese with my everyday type clothing, something that's very striking and so different from what I see other people wearing. I think of them as one of Japan's secret treasures.
