Soto Koromo Priest's Robe
Soto Style Koromo Priest's Robe or Zen Ordained Robe.
Our Koromo is a Soto Style robe which is based on a typical pattern. It is more stylized and formal than the Lay Robe. The bodice is actually more similar to the Jubon. The skirt portion has more pleats and they overlap. And, there is an "arm pit ventilation" feature. The sleeves of the Koromo are extra long, extending far beyond the finger tips. We make the Soto Style Koromo Priest's Robe from the identical 100% fine quality, durable, cotton fabric.
The length of the lower portion of the Koromo robe hem is about 9" from the floor.
The sleeve portion extends beyond the finger tips when arms are outstretched by about 3".
The sleeve dept from the top of the arm towards the floor is 27". If you want deeper sleeves, please advise then ordering. There is an additional charge for the time to make deeper sleeves.
Your have two fabric choices:
- a Black men's dress shirt weight fabric
- a light weight fabric just about half that weight.
The lighter weight fabric is an excellent choice if you live in a warmer climate or want a Koromo for late Spring and Summer wear which is not so hot.
