In 1649, the first comprehensive list of restrictions for merchants was issued for Edo, which included a ban on gold lacquer decoration, houses with gold or silver leaf trimming, and gold lacquer riding saddles. Also considered too ostentatious were gold and silver clasps on tobacco pouches, which were occasionally forbidden. A case of flagrant violation of these attempts to regulate sartorial display occurred in 1681, involving the wealthy Edo merchant Ishikawa Rokubei. The Rokubei household had worn particularly magnificent dress in order to view the fifth shogun, Tokugawa Tsunayoshi, when he visited Ueno.

The Japanese version of these regulations was called ken’yakurei (law regulating expenditures) and was applicable to all classes of society. These regulations did not constitute a distinct body of laws but rather were included in occasional regulatory proclamations issued by the rōjū (council of elders) and were disseminated through various intermediaries to the targeted group or class. Although the chōnin (townfolk) often complained about repressive measures, the government generally relied more on threats and exhortation than on the imposition of punishment.

For Kon, fashion was double-edged—even though it was associated with wasteful living and a reproducing cycle of imitation, it seemed also to possess the power to liberate people from the iron grip of tradition, custom and etiquette, through the bestowal of delimited but crucial aesthetic agency. Premodern Japan had been governed by custom, which meant the absence or drastic limitation of subjectivity—in a feudal unconscious composed of habit and tradition. Absolute sources of intellectual, spiritual authority meant that feudal society was unreflexive and therefore un-self-conscious, and clothing styles were determined by an economy of ceremonial value and distinction.
