A Coxeter arrangement is the set of reflecting hyperplanes in the reflection representation of a finite Coxeter group. Arnold and Saito showed that every Coxeter arrangement is free. We prove that any restriction of a Coxeter arrangement is again a free arrangement. It explains why the characteristic polynomial of any restriction of a Coxeter arrangement has only positive integer roots, which was observed by P. Orlik and L. Solomon. We use the classification of Coxeter groups.
