The warrior in the photo wears a "samurai-eboshi (=head gear )" and a "hitatare" kimono which were saamurai's daily wear of those days. " Unlike "enryoes", such as "ho"and" kariginu" etc. which were the Imperial Court wears, this kimono serves as "suiryo." " As for it, the popular dress of ordinary people was its original style. In the upper and lower sides, this kimono is "retsu", white, "munahimo", and a "musubi-kikutoji" is attached to the waist part of "hakama" trousers. The warrior in the photo wears the "sodekuguri-no-o," attached to the sleeve, which shows his status. He has a waist sword, and a long sword to which "sarute" (=ape's hand) of a samurai style is attached, and then the fan and wears leather tabi. The "hitatare" does not show its "sodekuguri-no-tsuyu" outside, but is preserved to the inner side. The form out of which only the end comes to the bottom of a sleeve is common. The time of being in a battlefield is the time when it is a formal array which "chozugake-no-kakeo" is attached to "eboshi" cap. It is usually stopped by "koyui."
