Juban Shitagi is a traditional Japanese shirt, worn under kimono, as a casual shirt, under shirt or pajama top. Traditionally the juban shitagi would be worn under the kimono to help keep the samurai cool and to prevent their sweat from damaging the outer kimono top they wear. In home samurai would often wear this traditional under shirt as a casual shirt, while lounging in their home or while they sleep. Today, modern warriors may wear juban shitagi with narrow sleeves, under their Iaido Gi, Kendo Gi or as a light training Gi top. They also make for a traditional casual top, great for hot, humid summer nights. These traditional juban shitagi are perfect for anyone wanting a traditional samurai under shirt for training, cosplay, re-enactment or for a casual traditional fashion.

Liked the quality but the length of the arms and wideness were incorrectly sent based of the receipt, because the order took two months to deliver returning seemed inconvenient, for some reason this review doesn’t have the option comment on the other shintagi I ordered but it also had the same issue. The print came out nice but there was no way to know what it would look like in the store, example pictures would have been appreciated to show what the different placement options would have looked like
Thank you for your comment and review. As noted on the top of every page, including the view cart and order page there is roughly a 2 week delay in order processing due to back orders and pandemic issues. This is in addition to the stated 2 to 4 weeks for crafting time (more towards 4 weeks if a mon is selected to be printed). The images of the mon (front / back) should be shown when clicking the ? next to the option or when cycling through the product images.

Ordered narrow sleeve style, it was made incorrectly, sleeves looked like it was the wider sleeves just sewn partially inward toward the armpit in an attempt to make the narrow sleeve style I ordered.

Great quality stuff here! As an inner garment, it matches my vermilion red armor quite nicely!
For some reason the fabric was to rough to wear without a undershirt.
Thank you for your feedback regarding the natural texture of natural linen. Linen is a strong, robust material and will at first be a little rough to the touch of skin. After you wash it by hand and brush the material, it will become softer. You can repeat this until it becomes the softness of your desired feel. After you wash it lightly and it will maintain this texture and feel for the life of the linen and it will still remain strong. This is the reason why many people appreciate us using natural linen. Please try it and you will feel the difference. I hope with this explanation you too will appreciate your juban more and consider revising your rating.
As always, if you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact us directly via email, chat or phone. We are always happy to assist you 🙂
