In summer you'll often find people wearing a Yukata. It's a kimono but for the summer. I've seen people wearing these at Disneyland and on the streets of Tokyo. It's also the season for summer festivals or in Japanese, Natsu Matsuri. During these occassions Yukata's are worn.
I was in LOFT on Tuesday and spotted some Yukata's for men. These had skulls and spiderwebs on them. Since this tradition is fading I guess they are trying to change the designs for the more hip generation.
