"Sad Daruma" 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.

It's with designs like this when we wished our knowledge of Japanese folklore was deeper. The rounded image in the center is Daruma, one of the seven gods of fortune (who travel by ship) who is usually expressionless or at least neutral. Here he looks sad, and we're sure the kanji writing that surrounds the ship element explains why.

Beautifully painted, delicately drawn...and we have no idea what the black tiled square represents or covers....!

The outer jacket is a solid black with one stitched crest on the back.

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.
