The standard Shinsengumi uniform consisted of the haori and hakama over a kimono, with a white cord called a tasuki crossed over the chest and tied in the back. The Shinsengumi wore a light chainmail suit beneath their robes and a light helmet made of iron and a head band on which was inscribed the word makoto (誠, sincerity). The uniform was best defined by the haori, which was colored asagi-iro (浅葱色, light blue). The haori sleeves were trimmed with "white mountain stripes".
