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 haori is black on the outside with five family ivy crests, confirming it was made for a formal event. The lining is in shades of brown and gold, with a single sparrow in flight next to large bamboo shafts, each shaded beautifully. The lower band of gold is filled with small gourd shapes, tumbling around, and each filled with kanji lettering, some that resemble hanko (name stamps). Quite an interesting design!

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.
