This is a VINTAGE Japanese Men's Komon Kimono. Komon are informal kimono worn at home and about town. They are essentially the jeans and t-shirt combo of the kimono world. The smaller the pattern on a komon, the more casual it is. This one has a very small pattern, so it's a more casual piece. This kimono likely originates in the mid to late Showa Period (1926 - 1989).
I have inspected this kimono in detail, and it is in excellent vintage condition with only a few faint spots on it. Damage photos will be posted shortly. This garment is 100% silk.
145cm - Long (Collar to Hem)
133cm - Arm span
64cm - Width across the back
138cm - Total width of skirt
51.5cm - Sleeve drop
If you are unsure of how to interpret the kimono's size it is important to know that men's kimono are made to match the height of the wearer. The length of the kimono should match the distance from the shoulders to the floor of the wearer. In this case, this kimono would likely fit someone who is about 175cm (5'9"). The kimono should also wrap around the hips a full 1.5 times. So this kimono would fit a man with hips about 92cm (36"). If you are a little too tall for this kimono, that can be hidden by wearing hakama over top. There is a little bit of give and take in these measurements.
