Can we agree kimonos and japanese footwear are the best clothes ever ?
Next chatper fucking when ?
I need more of Uka and Touka.
Yeah, but they still managed to keep a bit that beautiful cultural heritage.
All clothes needs to be practical ?
Those shrine maiden outfits are better when we're talking about traditional Jap clothing.
But more importantly WHERE THE FUCK IS MY GODDAMN INARI CHAPTER HOLYBALLS
I'm sorry but the Chinese have the upper hand here
I really like those thick soled okobo/pokkuri geta a lot.
But are they really exclusively associated with geisha in Japan like wikipedia seems to imply? I'm sure I saw a lot of regular characters wear them, and it sure would paint them in new light.
American Indians have the best footwear. Moccasins = rugged, comfortable silent movement.
Cheongsam is better for the mistress you fuck on the side.
Kimono is better for the wife you love tenderly who raises your children.
...did you ever hear about that whole "fashion" thing, anon-kun? Practicality is hardly the only thing that matters when it comes to clothing.
I see /a/ is as autistic as usual today.
They were great for their time and it's hard to beat for being quiet, but soft leather shoes like those were used for thousands of years literally all over the world. Only reason we associate then with Native Americans is they were still using them until pretty recently.
Not great protection for your feet though, and little ankle support. Also lets in mud and water very easily.
So Yune was a geisha? That explains a lot.
Are you sure you don't mean zouri? They're the regular kind. But I specifically mean the taller ones.
Well, okobo are usually worn by maiko, apprentice geishas. But you can wear them with very beautiful clothes to complete it even if you aren't a geisha.
You'll usually see more getas and zoris.
The most beautiful thing is the coming of age ceremony in japan.
All these beautiful clothes and pretty colors.
You can see them here
>better than chinese
Yes,Kimono basically is derived from Chinese Hangfu.
Well,Kimono basically is derived from Chinese Hanfu.
There is however a difference between traditional/ceremonial clothing and what passes as fashion these days, ie: horrible monstrosities that have no place outside of the passerelles.
These are just s small part of them.
Usually yes, the red one.
It's called an "Hakama", it exist in many different colors, and used widely, but the red one are only for the shrine maiden it seems.
And nothing wrong with that, it's beautiful, and have a sexy side to it.
I don't know what makes them so pretty
and sexybut I'm happy not to question it too much.
The so-called "China dress" is a bastardization hybrid of Manchu Qing dress with European dress. True Chinese dress is the source of the Kimono.
Fuck the Qing. They ruined Chinese fashion with their ugly straightjackets and queues.
>a bunch of weebs who think nippon is glorious
Europeans are best culture you degenerates and I'm glad it has practically replaced Japanese culture
Cheongsam with thigh highs is a gift from the gods.
> No fundoshi.
/a/, you disappoint me...
Actually, traditional Qipao(Cheongsam ) is also partially derived from Chinese Hanfu.

Yeah, just like some of you perverted twats here who love footjobs or wearing high heels. It used to be a foot fetish custom.
Yeah I can easily love colourful dresses with pattens, but it's all about the shape and layers. Simple with earthy colours and patterns will always appeal to me on a core level though, I just like that stuff.
3DPD for illustrative purposes only
Patterns and embroidery were mostly for status. The poor would have still had very simple clothes. You could also look into the dress of poor and more chaotic times when patterned clothing was considered too much of a luxury even for nobility.
>Cao Cao discovered that Cao Zhi's wife the Lady Cui had disobeyed the sumptuary laws by wearing embroidered silk. It is said that Cao Cao himself saw her when he was on a tower, but in any case she was sent back to her family and ordered to kill herself.
Yukata : Summer kimono, light, one layer.
You usually don't wear anything under, and just normal sandals.
Kimono are usually everyday clothing, multiple layers of different fabrics. Usually worn with other accessories and tabis.
I'd say rich girls and traditional family.
It's still clothes from the past, most of the time it's used for festivals, and special events like graduation and such.
I don't think a lot of young girls wear them everyday, it's probably a question of tradition in the family.
Mature womens seems to wear them a lot.
It's true, but anime overexaggerate.
It does emphasize breast since the obi hold them, but it doesn't pour out of the fabric like often shown. The material is rather heavy.
It does work on a yukata though.
It's impressive how Japan managed to keep their tradition until now, that wouldn't happen in europe.
True, but it's just not the same.
Sorry for the 3DPD though, but I though it was nice enough to be posted.
For poofy as all fuck you would have to go to pre-Revolution France. This is a 1819 dress, only missing gloves.
This was a good and comfortable thread
Thank you all
They can be elegant as fuck aside from anything else
Speaking of that.
They even have a dance where they perform with getas.
