Well.... I must admit that I'm still a long way from putting on a hakama in aikido, but I have spend some time browsing the Tozando homepage anyway, and I couldn't help wondering what would be the best fabric for an Aikido-hakama. It seems like the choice is either Cotton or Polyester (or a Polyester/rayon blend) and I can se pros and cons to both. From my kendo-days I now that a cotton hakama tend to wrinkle a lot but on the other side polyester dosen't 'breathe' quite as well so you tend to sweat a lot more. They also some times have a kind of 'glossy' look to them that dosen't excactly enhance the 'original' impression of the outfit.
Any thoughts ?
