Kimono-style coat

has its origins in Japan, where it still exists today as a long, open, wide-sleeved garment, which is cut as a single piece. In fashion, the name is closely connected with a popular, simple and comfortable cut - particularly of the sleeves, which have an accentuated width and are an inseparable part of both the back and front of the garment. This style was imported from Japan by fashion designers in the early 20th century; later, it was inspiration for men's fashion suits. A kimono suit allows its wearer great freedom of movement.
