Yagyu Shingan ryu:
Techniques from eri dori are extremely common among armored systems. They are so prevalent, in fact, that grabbing an opponent by the collar and throwing them down was clearly a standard battle tactic.
As for sode dori, quite common among the jujutsu systems that accomodated plains-clothes situations, such as Tenshin shin yo ryu:
(nice one at 3:48).
Daito ryu has a number of kata with sleeve grabs as well.
There's no collar
elbow gripping in these clips.
