antique japanese tonbi coat
This antique Japanese Tonbi coat is a wearable piece of history. Over a century old, the immaculate craftsmanship and exquisite quality wool has endured the test of time, adding beautiful drape and a dramatic modern silhouette to winter looks.
The distinctive cut of the Tonbi coat is a fusion of Japanese and western styles, popularised during the Taishō and early Shōwa eras. Modified from English Inverness overcoats and given exaggerated arm openings, they were designed to be worn over kimonos but offer a timeless flexibility of styling that can be worn just as easily with traditional clothing or mixed up with modern pieces.
Fully lined with an oversized club-collar, side inseam pockets, internal breast pockets, hook-clasp neckline, and button-down front, this coat offers function and versatility equal to its eye-catching form.
