yeah well, how can i order from kiyota than? im not living in USA.
it's come a time for me now to order my Hakama since I got a new rank! yay!
i see that hakamas can be made from 100% polyester / 100% cutton,
which you would prefer ? (durability & reliebility)
aaah... now that's the challenge! well what i would suggest is find out where your sempai purchased theirs, and do the same.
if this your first time wearing a hakama, probably the cotton/poly blends would be better. they hold their pleats and are very lightweight.
good luck and congrats on your new rank
