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.

    • Haori: Haori are designed to be worn on top of kimonos but also look great with western world style clothing, with jeans etc.
    • Length: Haori are long jackets, most are from upper thigh to just below mid thigh length. Measure from base of back of your neck down to judge length on you
    • 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, onto which a himo (front ties) are attached. Himo are usually bought separately. Men’s himo should not be untied to open the haori, you unhook one side to open it. The hooks are hard to find but they can be made using a hairgrip and round nosed pliars to cut a piece of the hairgrip to the correct length then bend it into the S hook shape
    • Storage: Hang your garment to air when you receive it and do this at least three times a year if it is not frequently used.
      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 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. 
    • Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing traditional Japanese garments. I would advise only dry cleaning for silk ones and for most synthetic ones
    • Colour: Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently, therefore colour in the photos and description is a guide only
