BTW, it's called a kosode.
There's something called the kataginu which was worn in the 16th century as daywear by men of the samurai caste. It looks like this: http://www.wodeford hall.com/ torashibrown. jpg
Please go to

There's also something called a dofuku that could have sleeves or be sleeveless and was worn as an over-robe, as well as the jinbaori which was worn specifically over armor by samurai in command of others. You can make a dofuku fairly easily - it's simply a kosode without the overlap panels in the front. Since it's a man's garment, if you opt for sleeves, they should be fully attatched to the body.

Saionji no Hanae
has some information on jinbaori, which can be elaborately decorated. They generally have "lapels" in the front.
