揺絲 Swinging Thread or Yurugi no Ito
What is Yurugi no Ito of Samurai Armor?
This is the thread that connects the chest armor (Do) and the skirt (Kusazuri) of the modern armor (Tousei Gusoku). The thread is made longer so that the skirt can move freely even when a belt is wrapped over the armor for carrying a Japanese sword.
