Dochugi are casual kimono jackets typically worn by artisans, shop keepers, and workers. They feature a cross-over closure in the front, secured with fabric ties. Some have tapered sleeves, some even have pockets. They tend to be subtle designs and darker colors and are more likely to be made of durable cotton, synthetic, wool, or blend material. Because they have tie closures, the fit can be modified based on the frame of the wearer.
