This is a fantastic hand stitched very dark greyish navy blue men’s Asa 麻 (hemp) summer kimono which has the lovely warm feel of vintage hand weaving. The grey shima 縞 (pinstriped) design is stylish and sophisticated. Because of the fairly small size, I do recommend it for women as well — in fact I would be very happy to wear it by myself! Jump The Gun has a lovely original crispy and refreshing touch of hemp. This is definitely a special piece.
It has certain wear and some flaws including a repair at the right chest, a smudge in the lining around the hip and mark in the collar but I would enjoy the taste and feeling of the wonderful vintage piece. Please check detail photos and 'Extra Images'.
Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £7 or £8 for a belt.
