......pants and jacket

Hey everybody,
I figure there must be someone floating around here that would know the answer to this question I've been trying to answer for ever now (ok, like 4 or 5 months). Is there seperate terms, in Japanese for thr dogi top and dogi bottom.
Yep, thats about it. Thanks!
Osu!

Terms I have heard here:
Top = uwagi (jacket)
Bottoms = zubon (trousers).

In the local MA equipment store, top = ue, bottons = shita.

Was that in Japan? Shitagi is pretty much universally used over here to refer to underwear. Even when it doesn't refer to garments worn directly against the skin (i.e., t-shirt and/or undershorts) it refers to clothing worn underneath an outer layer, and not something worn around the legs.

I won't say it wouldn't ever be used in that context, but I'd advise caution when using it, Adam. Like, wait for a native Japanese to use it in that manner first. If nothing else, it seems a bit out-of-date.

Re: ......pants and jacket

~~Could very well be out of date and yes, we were told it meant 'underwear' . It's what was worn beneath the hakama. Thanks for the current clarification!~~

Re: ......pants and jacket

zubon (pants), and uwagi ( Jacket) is how I know it. ( I live in Japan )

Before you drive or steer your vehicle, you must first start the engine, release the brake and find gear!
