Elegant, for formal occassions such as "Embu" and "Taikai" these "Montsuki" have virtually replaced the more expensive silk garments because of practicality and price! Swordstore offers the best garments on the market today. These garments are made to the highest standards in Japan to hang properly and gather straight. For the sword arts and Kyudo, movement should look "monolithic" and our garments are made specifically for Iaido with this purpose in mind.
Larger clients with waists wider than 40 inches and/or chests greater than 42 inches should request "OKUMI". The kesa should not pull or tug and the garment is made to accomodate the larger sizes without compromising how the garment drapes. Culturally, the Japanese judge how a garment fits and is worn.
