Hirosode (広袖)

An outer garment (jacket) with wide cuffs. It is called hirosode in line with its shape (hiro means wide, and sode means cuffs). Variations include kariginu, nōshi, happi, chōken, maiginu, mizugoromo, hitatare, and suō. In contrast to hirosode, a garment with narrow cuffs is called “kosode (smaller cuffs)”; its variations include karaori, atsuita, nuihaku, surihaku, shiroaya, shironeri, and noshime. When wearing a hirosode costume, a kosode kitsuke (lowest garment) is worn beneath and the hirosode put on top of it.
