Convention Questions: Men's Colors

Whenever I go to a con to do a panel or to sell, I try to remember questions I get asked a lot. At this convention I've had several guys ask about men's kimono colors and patterns, as in what range do men have?

This is actually a quick and easy answer: if you go to any men's store here in the West and look around at the suits and business wear, you'll see the same color palette used in men's kimono and clothing (minus rare exceptions like Kabuki costumes, etc.). Black, grey, dark blues, browns, beiges, maybe the occasional light blue or light neutrals, are the norm. Patterns, if used, are very small and sedate, again like Western suits.

Thanks so much to everyone who's stopped by the booth so far and see you again tomorrow!
