きものーわーふく

It is a site that I'm discussing various ways of thinking and reference examples for men to use kimono (Japanese clothes) in everyday life.
Kimono is the same "clothes" as clothes, so my idea is that not only as a dress for a special day, but also as a daily wear for everyday wear, feel free to wear as it is for clothes.


Not dedicated to Men's kimono, but has some interesting information (english)

Victoria and Albert Museum

The kimono is a Japanese traditional garment worn by men, women and children. In kimono it is the pattern on the surface, rather than the cut of the garment, that is significant. Indications of social status, personal identity and cultural sensitivity are expressed through colour and decoration. The kimono worn by women, particularly the young, were the most richly decorated and it is generally these that survive in collections like that of the V&A.
