Re: Poll: Would you wear a hakama with its knee(s) patched in your aikido dojo?
The military encouraged me, as only they can, to wear my uniforms well. I have a steady job, so money is not an issue. I found that 65% polyester/35% cotton holds up better, and I don't train as often as many of you do.
At work, where I clerk for a large corporation I dress terribly. Long story, but it prevents unwanted promotion.
