"Cormorant" 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.

This lining features a cormorant perched atop a basket used to carry them to the river. Cormorant birds - called ukai in Japanese - have been used for centuries to catch a sweet river fish called ayu. Click here to see photographs of how this fishing is done.

Small, light blemish, see photo.

The outer jacket fabric is a solid brown with a single crest in light brown stitches.

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.
