a new person to the SCA make her man look like he was
a samurai, somehow kimono alone looks incomplete. My
terms were inappropriately general and vague. I read
somewhere (be careful using undocumented sources) that
a samurai would never attend a festival (SCA events
being festivals) without pants. I have only studied
some people of the "Sengoku" period, so my area of
knowledge is truly quite small.
In the future I will be more careful how I phrase
things... "Look here for cool samurai pants too!"
Sorry for the confusion
