This is a vintage Japanese underkimono - called a juban - that would be worn beneath a kimono, where only a few centimeters of the collar would be seen in public.These days, our buyers use these as casual robes as-is if you don't have a kimono to wear with it.

This juban is gorgeous - the fabric is a soft, smooth, drapey silk with a printed or perhaps painted design that features elements of travel in the Edo Period. Youll find a basket, a thatched rain coat and hat with a walking rod, and a view of Mt. Fuji. Inbetween there are several poems or phrases in kanji - each with the stamp of the author - but unfortunately we cannot translate them.

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7".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