Lined Striped Kimono
  • Men's informal, striped crepe fabric, Japanese kimono. It is fully lined (awase) and has a lovely weight to it. A very handsome garment.
  • Made  in Japan
  • The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment
  • To wear a kimono closed, you also need a tie belt/sash/obi of some kind. These are always bought separately. Think of it like trousers and a top, you don't usually wear one without the other but you buy them separately and mix and match
  • Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only

Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit style, so a single garment will fit a range of sizes. As I only really know my own size (female, UK size 10), I am not really able to advise anyone about the fit on them. Please judge the fit on you from the measurements given below.

  • Kimono require a sash to hold them closed, this is always bought separately. Men usually wear a kaku obi with their kimono or, casually at home, a soft heko obi.

    Sizing: Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes.

    Judge fit from the measurements given. Check length given for the garment, then measure from base of back of your neck down to judge that length on you. Also measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length.

    Cleaning: Be very cautious about washing kimonos. All cleaning is done entirely at your own risk, as is standard with all vintage garments and items. I would advise only dry cleaning for silk ones and for most synthetic ones, cotton ones may be dry cleanable too but select your dry cleaner carefully and take their advice before deciding if you want to try dry cleaning it. 

    Colour: Be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only.
