Men's Kimono

Men's kimono, also known as 'male kimono', have a construction similar to women’s kimono but there are few key differences.  The male kimono is typically a simple, understated color and design compared to those found in women's versions. Kimono for men are also slightly shorter and the sleeves are “boxier” because they are sewn to the bodice under the arm whereas women’s kimono are open under the arm. In recent years, “kimono men” can be seen more often on magazine covers, social media, and in the fashion world, with celebrities and trendsetters embracing this unique and stylish garment.

She has a deep passion for Japanese textiles, over 25 years' experience selling them, and is still eager-as-ever to share that with her customers. So if you have any questions or want to learn more about the history and significance of your purchase, Nancy is more than happy to 'talk kimono' with you.
