Please note the different fabric patterns for the Medium & Large sizes. These pants are designed to fit loosely. These monpe will shrink after the first washing to the size in the description picture.

Note: The monpe's fabric is somewhat stiff due
to containing a small amount of sizing used during the weaving process. After the several washings, the fabric will soften to become very comfortable.
The monpe should be washed separately from other clothing at least for the first time because of dye bleeding.
