During the Joseon Dynasty, when women went out at night, they often wore a coat called a jangot, which had a cowl that they used to cover their head and face. However, in the early Joseon period, the jangot was an overcoat with no head covering. Several features indicate that this garment was not used simply to cover the head, such as the thick cotton lining, splendid fabric, practical design of the shape, and location of the ties.
