> Just wondering, for Kamakura/Momoyama period, are kosode usually lined or unlined (usually the innermost layer is unlined, correct?)? Does it depend on the season (lined in colder months, unlined in warmer)?

The general rule of thumb seems to be "lined for winter/unlined for
summer". That said, kosode were often layered one on top of another,
so unless you have soemthing that needs a lining, I'd just go for
layers. Three to four unlined kosode under something like an
uchikake, in my opinion, looks much more sumptuous than two lined
