Sizing:
Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Because of this (and only really knowing my own size anyway) I can't really advise anyone on the fit. Please judge fit from the measurements given. Measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length.

    Below you can see examples of Japanese haoris (not the one for sale in this listing), some worn open and some with a belt added. The model, without heels, is 155cm tall.


    Haori Information:

    • Haori: Haori are designed to be worn on top of kimonos but also look great with western world style clothing, over casual jeans, with smart trousers or dressed up with a skirt or dress

    • Fastening: Haori do not overlap at the front and are not worn with an obi/sash. Haori can be worn without fastening but, if you want a fastener, they have little loops at the inner edge of the fronts, to which a himo (front ties) are attached. Himo are usually bought separately, though some of my haori already have them attached. Tying instructions can be found on my Kimono Info pages

    • Haori also look really good cinched in at the waist with a belt and they are usually so beautifully made that, in the lined ones, the seams are all concealed, so you can turn it inside out and wear it that way, with the top half of the body showing the beautiful lining fabric and the bottom half of the body and the edge of the sleeves showing the same fabric as the outside. Being effectively reversible, it's like having two different jackets in one.

    • Storage: The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment.

    • Hang up your garment for a few hours prior to wearing, to remove fold creases.

    • They should also be hung out to air 4 times per year, if not worn frequently. Hang your garment to air for a day or so immediately after purchase too, as it will have been stored for a while.

    • Cedarwood or lavender essential oil keeps moths away, don't get it on the fabric, apply near it, on the box, wrapper, drawer etc or on a tissue.

    • Uses: Haori can, of course, be worn but also make a wonderful display items and require less space to display than a kimono. Many of them have lovely linings and they usually have hidden seams on the inside, so can be worn or displayed inside out too

    • Length: Haori are long jackets, most are from upper thigh to just below mid thigh length. Check length above then measure from base of back of your neck down to judge length on you

    • Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing traditional Japanese garments. I would advise only dry cleaning for silk ones and for most synthetic ones and any crepe or shibori fabrics. Some synthetic or cotton kimonos can be gently hand washed but the dyes can run even in some of those, so consider that before washing. Do not machine wash, it can rip off the sleeves

    • Colour: Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only

    Additional Information
    One must bear in mind that most are vintage items, which I strive to describe accurately and honestly. A very few smell of mothballs or a touch of vintage mustiness, most do not. This can be aired out and this can be speeded up by tumble drying the dry garment at warm. I usually mention it in the listing if one does but one must bear it in mind as a possibility when buying vintage and antique items.
    Please be aware that different 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 try to describe colour sometimes, a description often conjures up one colour to one person but may suggest a different colour to another, so, again, colour description is just a guide to 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 publicly wear something so clearly Japanese, very striking and so different from what I see other people wearing. I think of them as one of Japan's secret treasures.
