See last photos
These pants are designed to fit very loosely and are a little larger than our other monpe. These monpe will shrink about 5+% after the first washing.


Note

The monpe should be cold/warm washed separately from other clothing at least for the first time because of dye bleeding. Washing instructions included in shipment.
