Description
 
This is a dochugi style jacket, which crosses over in the kimono style (unlike the haori style which hangs open in the front). But instead of needing an obi, it closes with inner and outer ties, which can be tied loosely to allow for a more generous fit. Where haori are best for up to a size 12, dochugi can fit up to a size 16+.

A sweet design of floating ginko leaves - with their distinctive fan shape - seem to flutter all along this jacket. A light golden brown color with the leaves done in a lighter version of the same color. (The color may seem more pinkish in some of the full-view photos, but the color is best represented by the close up photos.) We love the ginko leaf motif - and it's not all that common!

Tapered sleeves make this a jacket that would work better than its haori cousin in a work situation. Nice medium-weight silk with a golden yellow corded outer "frog"closure that pops a bit against the golden brown.
