- A man’s cotton han juban, with synthetic textile sleeves and collar.
- Made and bought in Japan
- 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
Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only

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 kimono jackets are traditionally held closed by a single tie at centre front, called a haori himo. The himo is always bought separately from the haori and can be changed to suit the occasion. On men;s haori the himo is usually attached with hooks and simply unhooked at one side to open the haori, on women's haori the himo is tied with a much simpler knot and untied to open the haori.
Men's haori vary in formality, the bigger and thicker it is, the more formal the occasion to which it may be worn. A very thick, white himo with fluffy tassels is the most formal.
