Description
 
This vintage Japanese man's kimono reminds us of a pinstriped suit. The deep dark indigo blue has a very slight reddish cast to it from the tiny pinstripes that run vertically. Silk indigo lining.

The fabric might be all silk but it has a firmer cotton feel, so we suspect it is a cotton-silk blend.

There are three main differences between traditional kimono made for men and women:
-Men's kimono have no opening under the arm like women's kimono do, creating a more square sleeve.
-Men's kimono are shorter so there is no extra fabric to fold over at the waist.
-Men's kimono are single color or have a very small woven or printed pattern.

See the video below for details on how to traditionally dress in men's kimono.
