Chushingura (Edo period) which I have had the daimyo strolling the
halls in nagabakama. Yes, I know that movies are not documentation,
but they are illustrative. Take a look at the coronation robes of the
Showa emperor sometime. Lots of clothing gets ossified. A lot of
"classic" wedding gowns are based on upper class women's Summer wear
of the mid 19th century.
Your Humble Servant
