Offered today is an exquisite Japanese dragon robe of a silky material in black and royal blue. The embroidery on this reversible robe is extensive featuring three toed dragons of the Japanese Culture. The diagram on the back of the black side is done in cream and gold thread. On the blue side the threads are silver, white, and three shades of blue. Each side has a smaller dragon on one breast and Japanese characters on the opposite breast. Each sleeve has embroidered design on two sides. Each side has patch pockets with contrasting trim, blue on black / black on blue. The cuffs are contrasting as well. The original belt is seven feet long; one side blue, the other black. The width of the robe is the same for its entire length leading me to believe it may have been made for a man, but I feel it is unisex. It was purchased at the famed tourist stop, Bailey's Antiques and Aloha Shirts in Honolulu in 2006. I say 'famed' because the likes of Tom Selleck and the Ronald Reagons shopped there.

Robe will be shipped to you in the same condition I found it in. I wore it sparingly, but felt royal when I did. I wore it comfortably and I am. Definite XL. Cleaning will be up to you. No stains, no ware, no damage. I am selling because my son had a robe tailor- made for me in Korea.
