    Kimono/Yukata

    Hello I'm trying to wear kimono as much as possible at JKI (and Jon wears samue). Here's some kimono photos I have... I have a lot of kimono at home, and most of them are not in this thread.. From next time I wear kimono, I will make sure to upload photos here.

    FYI: I started learning how to wear kimono like a year ago (from my Mom who lives in Japan)... so please forgive me for any mistakes I make...

    With my artistic parents.




    I bought this hurisode (kimono with extremely long sleeves) for my coming of the age.



    Date night in kimono




    Quick breakfast in kimono...


    Being two massive dorks in kimono (hakama for Jon)




    Working in kimono

    These Kimonos are beautiful, but I have to say, your father looks awesome in that second picture. I hope I get a few pictures like that of me before I die.

    Jinbei. Best summer clothing ever. Just hard to find my size.

    I really enjoy putting kimono on ! I'm hoping to do a kimono day more often, but i often run out of time The purple one you liked is from Japanese so-called "Taisho Roman" (Taisho Romance) period. It's an antique, and was originally designed as a wedding gown. As an indication as an antique, the hem has a little volume to it.
