Re: Affordable Hakama...

It takes many yards of fabric to make a hakama (all those pleats) and it is labor intensive to measure, fold and set them. I cannot imagine less than $29, and have to assume the folks making them are being paid chicken feed. If you find $29 too high a price, make your own (if you can find 5 yards of fabric at that price) or, better, ask around your dojo for a second hand one.
