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 is woven with threads that were dyed in a mud bath with an iron content that is known to extend the durability of the silk threads. Dorozome is the term for dyeing with this mud, and oshima is the term for this type of woven silk. Soft, with a bit of sheen, and a tiny grid pattern that is typical of this style of kimono.

Dark indigo silk 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Sizing for men's vintage kimono is very limited since they were originally made for Japanese men, who typically had slender builds and an average height of 5'7".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 but if you have a requested color, please note that on the order form.

See the videos below for details on how to put on a man's casual kimono and how oshima silk is made.
