This is a vintage Japanese casual kimono for a man. We know it’s casual because it does not have any komon – family crests. These make great robes for leisurewear at home but can also make a statement if worn out to a party or special event.

This kimono may be "casual" but it's very finely woven. We can't be sure about the fiber, but it has a sheen but is also a heavier fabric than normal, so might be silk blended with something sturdy. The very tight weaving includes several colors but the kimono "reads" a shiny blue.

Nice indigo silk lining and basting stitches on the sleeve edges suggests that the kimono was never worn.

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7".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