This is a vintage Japanese kimono for a man - a heavier weight and weave than we usually see.  Men's kimono tend to be very understated in pattern and darker colors, 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 heavy weight polyester in light and dark blue with a very tiny weave pattern that melts into a solid blue color when not viewed close up. There is a 3" tuck sewn a the waist - which is how kimono are "hemmed" - that could easily be removed if desired.

The basting stitches on the sleeves suggest the kimono was never worn, since that trim detail is typically done at the tailor's who sewed the kimono.

We don't typically include a sash with kimono but in this case we've added a thin obi normally used to tie an underkimono.  The black and white stripes go well with this kimono.  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Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'8".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.
