Unusual Finds: Yukata and Pleather Obi

I bring two unusual finds this week! For the tall girls out there, there's a "5L" size new women's yukata over at Ichiroya. Note the crosshatch texture of the fabric, a typical feature of nicer yukata which, if I remember right, helps give the fabric a bit of stiffness.

The other is pre-tied men's obi over on Ebay, which aren't rare at all, but these are made out of something I've never seen used for obi before: synthetic leather, an apparent nod to trendy modern fashion?
