Men's Yukata specificity
Dressing men's Yukata is easier than women's because of no Ohashori (adjustment of height of yukata) and no Emon-nuki (collar arrangement for women).
So when you buy your Yukata, it is necessary to fit the height of yukata and length of sleeves. The height of Yukata is just on the ankle. Bit shorter is smarter than longer size.
Obi for man's yukata
Heko-obi is easy to wear. My junior high boy can wear it by himself.
A young guy I saw in a train recently, he tie the Kaku-obi tightly around his hipbone with a bow knot in front. But it was cool. Any arrangement is OK with stylish way of dressing.
