"Every single man ought to have his own sewing machine just so he can hem his own pants."

From spending years in the business world, I can tell you that the old desk stapler does just fine on a pants hem.

As far as a hakama, I have had a poly-blend for about 8 years and like it very much. The knees have held up very well. And I hang it up after I get home after class. I have however, made the mistake of having the iron temp. set too high and I now have a very light iron mark on my "ura". The poly is easy to take care of, but I think my next hakama will be the aiki style from Bu Jin Design. I like the way it looks and how it hangs on the aikidoka.
Yours in Aikihood
