Hitatare (直垂)

A long-sleeved lined garment with matching top and bottom worn by the role of a samurai. The hitatare is used for characters with higher standing than those wearing the suō. Many hitatare are made from hemp cloth with dyed patterns. The hakama worn is a nagabakama, or “long hakama” at the bottom of which is worn a komiōkuchi hakama to add bounce to the costume. When only upper half of the hitatare is worn over an ōkuchi hakama, it is known as a kakehitatare. In shikisanban (okina), when the sanbasō, senzai and menbakomochi wear the hitatare, a short-sleeved hakama or kiribakama is worn instead of the nagabakama.
