This is a vintage Japanese semi-formal kimono for a man. We know it’s semi-formal because of the three family crests (called mon) that appear at the neck and back of each sleeve. A more formal kimono would have two more crests on the front; a less formal kimono would have only one crest or none.

The black silk is smooth and lightweight but there seems to be a thin layer of silk batting beneath the silk, so this kimono would be great for cooler temperatures.

The crest features a ring of five circles that represent stars, and in the center is a sunburse pattern.

The lining is two-tone silk with lighter indigo blue on the top and a darker version of indigo at the bottom.

There is also a 2-inch tuck at the waist that can be released if more length is desired.

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7". 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.

NOTE: Our kimono do not come with an obi/belt/sash and we rarely are able to carry men's obi. But we do make simple cotton sashes that can be added as an option when you order. We'll choose a color that goes well with it.
