View Full Version : Do men's kimono shirt exist?

I couldn't find any shirt-like kimonos ( not sure if they'd be called kimonos ). Pretty much like a karate gi, but with short sleeves. I'm looking for something like the posted picture. Is there such a place that sells them, or would I have to make it myself? Thanks!:)

You're going to have to make that yourself, probably. The closest would be men's jinbei (a kind of traditional pajama set) but the sleeves are usually elbow-length and they don't have the extra collar piece.

You'll probably have to make it yourself, but luckily they're pretty easy. All the pieces are rectangles.

Look for patterns and directions to make a Jedi tunic, and shorten the sleeves. I made a shirt very similar to that image based on these directions: http://www.rebellegion.com/jedigarb/tunicinnertunic.html

You might also want to check out the kimono pattern from Folkwear and just modify the sleeves. Most of us use it to make kimonos and you can find it cheep on ebay.
