Description
 
This black silk haori jacket is lightweight but the silk makes it cool on a warm night and warm on a chilly one. A lightening jacquard pattern is the background but woven florals floating about give the jacket an even more formal feel. The flowers are woven urushi - lacquered threads that shine in the light and give a slight texture above the silk.

This jacket has a single white family crest at the neck as well.

These slightly modified vintage Japanese kimono jackets offer a comfy fit for larger women. In our Oki Line (oki means "big" in Japanese) of modified haori jackets, we open up the gusset and underarm seams and then re-attached them using every inch of the salvage seam edges. This yields up to an additional 6" of width in the waist, hip, and bust measurements.

Whereas unmodified haori tend to be more narrow at the bust because the side gussets gradually narrow from waist to bust, our Oki Haori do not taper at the bust, which gives you more coverage in front. Compare your measurements to those given, and keep in mind that the measurements we give are the haori measurements, not a recommendation for the wearer's measurements.

Remember, vintage haori do not cross over or tie with a sash, like a kimono does - they are meant to be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn beneath.
