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.

The fiber is a soft Japanese silk, with a gray overcollar (which can easily be removed) that has some texture and might be a silk blend. (There is also some fading of the collar at the fold.)

The patterning is alternating bands of light sage green and darker teal green. Floating along those bands are three different woodblock-style scenes - one of which looks like a little tea shop along the roadway. The other scenes include Mt. Fuji and a castle along a river.

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Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7".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