shows with a very narrow time frame. For example, Sanjuro takes place
pretty much over a course of two days. Yojimbo and Seven Samurai have poor
people (who are also travelling).
Watch Kagemusha, Ran, or Samurai Banners, real films about real samurai,
rather than films about ronin or peasants or townsfolk.
They had plenty of clothes, and changed more or less like we do, if sources
are any indication.
