Hi Craig and thankyou.
I can't photo the actual kimono becuase it is all wrapped up in special Japanese gift wrap. I've found this pic which looks close to it except the colour is gold not orange and there isn't any pattern on it (this also not where I bought it from - I got a friend to buy it while she was in Osaka). It is really lovely and I can't wait to see him in it, but just dont want him embarrassed! The website says this is a ladies kimono and that's why I am worried - all the male kimonos I can find seem shorter, darker and maybe a different material?
By the way, what would be ok for guys to wear under it? I can't find jubans anywhere apart from antique sites. Someone suggested a slip, but I think that would make the issue I'm concerned about much worse!
Thanks for your help; I really appreciate it.
