Yamatoku Classic on Ebay - $20 Ko-Furisode - Results Are In!

As I posted a while ago, kimono dealer Yamatoku Classic put up a ton of synthetic ko-furisode (most casual form of furisode) on Ebay for a really low Buy-It-Now price of $20 each.

I snagged two for myself, and they got here today. I couldn't be happier with my purchases! Not only is the wingspan really and truly wide enough (meaning the sleeves reach to my wrist proper) and the kimono long enough for my 5'7" self, but they're beautiful in person. And, as they're synthetic, you can actually wash them yourself (by hand), which you can't really do with silk ones. Here are the two I got:

If more come up in the future, I'd recommend checking them out. I know I might get another one! :)
