What size is appropriate for mens kimono?

Our store lists vintage mens kimonos. We often get questions about size. Men seem to want a more samurai-like look than women who enjoy kimono in their free style. The conclusion is, “It’s difficult, so you can wear it freely on a T-shirt, etc.”, but let me explain how to wear it and the appropriate size.The following photo is a set of long kimono, haori, hakama, and kaku obi.

Men may dream of dressing like this.Or maybe a woman wants to date a boyfriend in this fashion. Both are quotes from the magazine “Utsukushii Kimono(Beautiful Kimono)” Fall 2009 issue.

Anyone who wants to challenge can find a video with an English explanation on YouTube. For example. . . .

Japanese movies featuring Samurai and Yakuza gang will also be helpful. For those who say, “I don’t want a movie with a splash of blood,” you might like the “Bonchi” (1960) starring Raizo Ichikawa. This is the story of a bad son from a large merchant in Osaka. You can also enjoy the kimono appearance of women.

① Length = Height-25cm~27cm
② Sleeve length x 2= Height 165cm → 140cm, 170cm → 144cm, 175 cm → 148 cm

In addition, the length of the haori,
Long Kimono Length-45cm to 50cm is standard.

However, this is the way of thinking in the Japanese figure. Europeans and Americans may have longer arms.
In addition, the dress length is assumed to be Japanese sandals, but Westerners wear boots, so there is also the idea that the length can be shorter. In other words, if you enjoy your own style rather than the authentic way of wearing like a Japanese man, you may not need to worry about the size of the kimono and Haori. Kimono is a very flexible outfit.
Please enjoy yourself with your own ingenuity.
