This is a vintage Japanese summer kimono for a man - light and unlined to handle the hot and humid Japanese summers!  Men's kimono tend to be very understated in pattern and darker colors (even for summer), so expect blues and browns with very smalll woven designs or no pattern at all. These make great robes for leisurewear at home but can also make a statement if worn out to a party or special event.

The fabric is a lightweight silk with a pattern that looks like the static they used to broadcast when a TV station went off the air (decades ago!). Blue and black mix to create what may appear steel blue from a distance.

We don't typically include a sash with kimono but in this case we've added a thin sash normally used to  tie an underkimono.  The blue and white woven design is similar to the type of casual obi that would traditonally be worn with a kimono like this. We rarely get men's obi except for our Surprise Me Heko Obi (in black or blue) which would work with this kimono if you wanted something more traditional. 

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'8". Taller, slender-to-medium build men will be able to wear these kimono but will find the sleeves ending between elbow and wrist and the hem ending somewhere on the shin.
