Thanks, you guys are very helpful!!
Keep the advice coming!!
Devlin, I have a traditional koshita, I thought about getting the Aiki style, but I eventually went with traditional because, well, it's traditional
and I felt I should get used to it before trying the Aiki style for my next hakama.
But anyways, I followed the tag that says it's machine washable and low dryer, but I think I will hang it dry. (it's in the washer now as I'm typing), as far as the koshita breaking down, I hope washing it in the machine just this once
(famous last words?)
Any more advice from anyone??
