Yoroi Haori is a long flowing kimono style jacket which is worn over Samurai yoroi (armor). The yoroi haori or “samurai armor jacket” can be made from a light cotton or wool to help keep extra warm. The samurai armor jacket is worn waist to knee length and can be worn opened or kept closed by a odoshi lace tied at the waist. During the Sengoku era (warring state) resources were more basic, as more money was spent on military campaigns, so the samurai armor jacket was typically made from a basic asa (hemp or cotton linen). Into the Edo era (peaceful state) samurai had more money to spend on finer material, especially on imported materials, so the Samurai armor jacket would have been made from a more fine cotton or wool material. During both Sengoku and Edo era samurai would wear this armor kimono jacket during military campaigns or informal occasions. For more formal use samurai would wear jinbaori, a sleeveless jacket, with their armor sets. Samurai would also wear a manto (cloak) with their armor set as well, which was influenced by the European traders.
