of web sites that specialize in traditional Shinto accoutrements.
I don't understand Japanese, but the impression I got was that most
of their customers were those planning weddings.
I'm not suggesting you buy anything from those sites, but the pictures
will give you a good idea what clothing is traditional. In my opinion,
the designs of most of the men's formal garments don't appear to have
changed much since the Heian period, so many of them are acceptable
for SCA use.
The pattern sites you cited are generally considered to be good
references. In addition to the "katchu" section of SengokuDaimyo.com,
don't miss the garb section -
