This is a vintage Japanese summer kimono for a man - light and unlined to handle the hot and humid Japanese summers!  Men's kimono tend to be very understated in pattern and darker colors (even for summer), 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 lightweight blue silk with a subtle, small woven checked pattern.  The silk is smooth with a slight sheen.

We don't typically include a sash with kimono but in this case we've added a thin blue and white tie that would have been used on an underkimono.  We rarely get men's obi except for our Surprise Me Heko Obi, which would work with this kimono if you wanted something more traditional. Or if you'd like a wider, cotton sash in a contrast color, you can Add a Sash (see option at right). Be sure to include a note with your order that you'd like a contrast color, otherwise we might send blue or white.)

Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'8".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.
