      I am so sorry I started this argument; I meant to help
      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
