"River Runners" Man's Haori

A vintage formal man's kimono jacket (called a haori). The decorative lining on these formal jackets often reflects the hobbies, interests, or favorite myths of the original owner.

The lining features an elaborate, artful scene of a traditional river boat filled with travelers and their goods. This artwork was created by a master, no doubt. Contemplate the calligraphy, admire the shells, and ponder the expressions on their faces, wonder about the contents of those wrapped packages...

The outer jacket is a solid black with five crests.

We display these men's haori inside out to reveal the lining - normally hidden from public view when worn, and only visible if glimpsed as it was taken off or hung up.

All of the stitching is hidden, so these jackets can normally be displayed or worn (in the West, at least) either way. See the video below on how to wear traditional Japanese garments for men.
