Fedex did not disappoint me this time; my hakama came in today~ I was a little worried at first because I ordered a size smaller than recommended, but I ended up being spot on. When I wear it should fall right to wear I need it... I'm just a little hesitant about undoing all the basting that's currently keeping the pleats in proper shape. The hakama's a poly-cotton blend, and it's actually quite stiff, so I'm wondering if I should reinforce the pleats. Someone who reviewed it said it loses its pleats easily, but he actually used it for its intended purposes in kendo... I mean, it certainly couldn't hurt to reinforce them, but if I don't really need to I'm not going to.
