Subject: [SCA-JML] Shoulder Tie
I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I am a newbie, so sorry
guys. So my question is what are those ties that you see samurai wear
that go over their shoulders and cross on the back, I am guessing that
they are to tie up the sleves of the kamono when they duel, but what
are they called, what are they made of and how do they tie them?
