I'm planning a Fujiwara no Sai cosplay from Hikaru no Go, and for the sake of finding patterns and such, I was wondering what the proper name was of the clothes he wears.

Here are some pictures:

I *believe* the whole ensemble is referred to as shikifuku, but I have a sneaky feeling that's a pop culture thing. More specifically the white outer robe is a jo-e. The kariginu in the Reconstructing History pattern is extremely similar - other than colour, AFAIK the differences are incredibly minor, and the under shirt and trousers of View A are also identical. The eboshi, on the other hand, is the much higher, structured Shinto version than the one in that pattern - there's a not-dissimilar one in the Sengoku period or the Shinto dancer's RH pattern, but provided it's stiff enough it's not actually a difficult shape.
