Mens tapered pants in a breezy Takashima Chizimi crepe cotton are great for the warm weather months. It is ideal for dressy casual outfits during the summer, and pair with our kimono sleeve tops for a traditional look during summer festivals. The silhouette is similar to “Tattsuke” pants that had ties below the knee to taper the pants in. These “Tattsuke” were also named Steco after the “Steco Dance” during the Meiji era. The dance was made famous by 3rd generation Rakugo performance artist, Sanyutei Enyuu, who wore a pair of white “Tattsuke/Steco” under his kimono during performances.
※These pants fit slightly more snug on the body than previous releases in other materials, so it is recommended to size up to the next largest. Check dimensions before purchase.

※Each piece is cut uniquely from the printed textile, therefore print placement will vary and cannot be selected.

About Takashima Chizimi Crepe Cotton
・Cotton crepe fabric or “Chizimi” in Japanese, with origins dating far back, was introduced to Japan by Ming dynasty weavers in the Tensho year of the Momoyama period (circa 1573). By strongly twisting the weft yarn during weaving, it produces a material that can retain its shape despite stretching or pulling.
・Chizimi is very breathable and effectively absorbs sweat, keeping you feeling fresh and vibrant all day long.
Chizimi crepe cotton is one of Japan’s finest textile exports, and SOU SOU is very proud to offer a wide variety of products made of this versatile fabric.
