I never got the geta like I wanted... so if Revell is selling them in the dealers hall I'll pick some up.
Jinbei are a combo of loose-fitting shorts and shirt made of a light fabric. They almost resemble Japanese construction workers clothing. It's made for stepping out with your beau on those warm summer fetsival nights, The designs range from simple to ornate. The men's Jinbei are usually done in subdued colors like dark blue, grey, or black, while the children's types are are colorful. For a peek at what they look like, see my fanily photo in the in Japan summer trip post. I'm wearing one.
We don't have geta for sale...never saw it much during my travels, it was mostly wood sandals or slippers on feet there. I think somebody figured out geta are hard to walk about in.
