Many westerners think of a kimono as a "robe" worn by geisha.

However they've been traditionally been worn by both men and women of every class and occupation in varying forms since the Heian period (794-1192).
Kimono were made by cutting pieces of fabric into straight lines and sewing them together.

The straight-line-cut method.

Allowed the tailors to work efficiently and not have to custom make clothing for individual people or waste fabric.
Loose fitting fabric was comfortable and easy to wear in all seasons.

Even in winter because of the ability to layer and/or use heavier fabric.
Colors and patterns of kimono and their accessories are typically chosen by season.

Some point in history men's were based on class and clan.
Men's kimono are typically more subtle.

Among the Kamakura period warriors, kimono could be used to flaunt one's status and call attention to himself.

Much like with their elaborate helmets and armor on the battlefield.
During the Meiji period, with pressure to westernize, the kimono's presence lessened.

Officials were required to wear western clothing.

The kimono's usage was mostly limited to "ordinary citizens".
