A quickie Google Image Search for "chinese robe" got a gajillion hits. Here's one from, of all places, Etsy and ships from Pennsylvania: One Example.

Note - the above is Etsy and the example robe is 40-ish years old - meant as an example, not the one to get necessarily...

[We have a couple dynamite robes ourselves, both reversable (!); yesterday I was wearing the black/gold combo complete with dragons etc - warm, etc. Unfortunately, these were made and bought in Vietnam and brought back (per request) by a Ma-in-law but the dragon is similar to the link above]

Goodness! With a little more image perusing (used "reversible chinese robe" as the Google Search key) I found what appears to be the same line of robes mentioned above in the aside - note that there were many many hits, probably some of them in the US:

Similar to what we have

Interesting...I once said that to a linguist and he hadn't heard it before but flew with it and said "Hmmm...probably from 'macht nichts'" or something like that. I got it from my Dear Ol' Ma whose parents used to speak German whenever they didn't want her and her siblings to know what was being discussed...
