Japanese Kimono Haori, black montsuki for a man. The garment is woven with black silk and metallic thread in a subtle diamond pattern. Five mon (crests) are printed onto the surface in white. They attest that this kimono was commissioned by a descendant of the feudal Lord Clan Doi Toshikatsu (adviser to Shogun Tokugawa Hidetada 1573-1644).
The dark and restrained patterning of the outside of this kimono jacket, or haori, contrasts with the dragon and tiger woven embroidery on the golden, silk lining. Depictions of dragons are used throughout the Japanese culture as symbols of strength, courage and magic. Japanese dragons are tied directly to deities. The tiger is a symbol of bravery and dignity in Japan.
All hand-made-hand-woven in pure, high quality Japanese silk. Japanese men's haori have no openings under the armpit. Obi is not worn with haori jackets so it is not included.
Measurements (please do not double): Back (flat): 25 inches (64 cm). Sleeve length: 20 inches (51 cm). Length (shoulder to hem): 41 inches (104 cm).
Condition: Excellent vintage. Commissioned in the Showa period. The item is pre-owned/loved and authentic. You may want to opt for an interesting wall display (see photo). Haori is completely wearable, as well. Men's haori is suitable as "Japanese groom kimono".
Provenance: Japan, Miyazaki.
