     A high-ranking samurai would have worn a jinbaori (Surcoat) like ours over his armor not only for protection against the elements, but also as a highly visible display of their status and their mon (family crest). Jinbaori are derived from a jacket known as a dofuku, which was worn by important samurai beginning in the late sixteenth century and often incorporated fabric imported from China or Europe. Beginning in the early seventeenth century, dofuku developed into two types: a short coat with sleeves called ahaori and the sleeveless jimbaoriJinbaori have broad lapels, to display the rich fabric of the lining, and a single slit up the back.

 Please Note: When ordering a jinbaori to wear with your armor, please add 4" (10 cm) to the requested chest size.
