Haori Sodetsukibaori (Samurai Jacket with Sleeves) or Medium Haori is a traditional Japanese “formal” jacket with sleeves worn over a Juban, Hakama Shita or Kimono. The medium Haori Sodetsukibaori is worn hip or knee length and can be worn opened or kept closed by an odoshi lace that connects the lapels. The lapel and collar are typically folded back to the outside, in which loops are sewn to attached the odoshi lace. During the Sengoku period a samurai would wear more simple medium haori for both casual and formal events. Samurai would wear a jinbaori (Sleeveless Jacket or Samurai Vest) or Haori Yoroi (Jacket for armor) over his armor. Samurai would also wear a manto (cloak) with their armor set as well. During the Edo period samurai became more affluent, affording more lavished formal jackets featuring silks, designs and decorative brocades. The Ashigaru and merchant class were restricted on the quality of their formal jacket, so a more discreet haori was designed, featuring simple material on the outside and silk material on the inside.
