Kimono Fitting

It is best to put yourself in the hands of the Kimono company fitting the garment. They will do their best to make you look good.

The fitting assures that the Kimono is the proper length and the design is what the wearer is pleased with. The garment is precisely fitted prior to the event it is to be worn for.

Women's Kimono's are colorful and pleasing to look at while men's Kimono's are more like a suit, tailored to fit and conservative.

This Kimono is traditionally worn by the groom on his wedding day, however, it is like a tuxedo, it can be worn by a gaijin anytime.

The Kimono is a fitted garment, it is assembled by a team of women who are very experienced in costuming Kimono's. The Obi is the last piece of the garment that is assembled. This picture is minus the Obi (and not completely fitted, only for size and color). These Kimono's were rented for a family event.

I wish I had a men's kimono.

The Kimono's are not cheap. I guess they are around $5,000 to $20,000 per garment, depending on the design and material. They will last a lifetime.

The Kimono cannot be assembled by yourself. It must be suited on the person.

Later on I will comment on wearing the Kimono. Being an ex-altar boy, I can relate to wearing formal garments.
