In my dojo, the dojo members all pool their money to buy a black belt and hakama for whoever is testing for sho dan. So far, there have been 5 of us (wow, that's a lot, there were none when I started), 6 if you count the sensei.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
