Thank you guys. I appreciate your assistance. You could very well be right, that is was kimono. Not sure, though, cause they looked just like gi, just more elegant of faberic and design. I will continue my search. And http://www.round-earth.com
has patterns for kimono for men, as well as Hapi, Haori and Tabi.
And MikeE, thank you so much for the link. I love getting links to these kind of sites.
