I took this from a display at the Hikone museum that had a kataginu of

the same time, I think the garment itself was a repro for the
character of Ii Naomasa in 'Aoi Tokugawa Sandai', so keep that in

Thank you all, as always the fact of so many periods comes out, and all
your answers are so well put. So, for shorts I could use a single large one on
the back of the upper portion of the garment and it would be ok (what about
the front?) or I could do as in the Nobunaga picture and again what would the
approximate size of the "small ones" when you use 5 markings would be?
To ask a question, may be a moments shame,
but not to ask and remain ignorant, is a life long shame.

repeat it, though you could certainly embellish both sides with
stripes above the kamon as in Ii-dono's red kataginu.
For the smaller two-front/one-back arrangement, maybe 2 to 2.5 inches
in diameter. (Modern crested haori and kimono tend to have even
smaller kamon on them, around 1.5 to 2 inches.)

else. I will be working on marking my garbs this weekend as I am not
going to make it to the An Tir / West War (couldn't get out of work)
and will post picures of them (maybe even with me wearing them,
