Re: When should I buy Hakama

I bought my first Judo gi in 1956, it cost me 4, that was a lot of money in those days. It was value for money as it is still good to this day...It was the gi I wore for a demonstration by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei in front of Lady Baden Powell at the BJC National Championships in 1964, a knife attack made a neat hole in the gi, I recently gave the gi to my students in New Mexico as a souvenir.
They are like an overcoat in the summer but never seem to wear out.
