Types of Kimono Jackets
The following are the different types of kimono jackets:Haori
These loose, mid-length or waist-length kimono coats were originally worn by men over the Japanese traditional clothing for men, but since the Edo Period, women started to wear them, too, over a kimono on cold and rainy days as protective clothing and for added warmth. Haori is meant to be worn open and has small ties on the front, which help to secure their front panels. Just like the Japanese kimono, the haori also comes in many colors and prints and made from elegant fabric, like silk, silk crepe, brocade, and many others.Michiyuki
Also known as travel coat, the michiyuki
is distinguished for its square neckline that is fastened with snaps or cloth-covered buttons. It comes in various lengths, is usually made of silk, and may have an inner lining that features a design, which complements the print or pattern of their outer fabric.Douchuggi
This long kimono coat or Japanese kimono raincoat are akin, in terms of style, to the Japanese kimono. However, in place of the obi, it is secured with fabric or corded ties both on the outside and the inside.Happi
This short informal jacket, also known as festive vest and similar in style to the haori, is worn in Japanese festivals or matsuri
and sports events. It was once worn as work clothes by the Japanese, like the fire fighters, gardeners, shop assistants, and craftsmen.Hanten
This padded traditional short coat features a simple tie-loop at the front. It was originally worn in Japan as an everyday jacket and are favored at present as sleep-over coat, outdoor coat, or short winter coat.Neneko
This padded knee-length kimono jacket is large enough to accommodate and warmly nestle a child that a mother carries on her back beneath the jacket.
The first happi coats often represented a family crest or coat of arms and were worn by house servants. Over time, the crests of symbols of shops or organizations superseded the family-based happi coats. Happi coats, today, come in a great variety of colors and styles. While popular during Japanese festivals, they can also be worn over a t-shirt with shorts or pants as active wear or casual clothing.Shop happi coats, Japanese kimono jackets, and kimono-style robes
