someone who is infatuated with Japanese traditional clothing and often can be seen wearing it. This person knows all the different types of kimono, their names, and their history. This person will often take the position of being opposed to modern clothing.
I'm a kimono phile coz I collect and wear kimonos and have the ability to judge the quality of a kimono by touching it and seeing how light shines on it.
