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.

The silk of this kimono was dyed with an iron-enriched mud and woven with the ikat technique, where the threads were dyed before being woven. The process is called dorozome - see video below for how this is done.

The tiny repeat pattern is traditional for a man's kimono, as is the indigo blue lining.

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7".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

See the video below for details on how to put on a man's casual kimono.
