Would it be safer to go for the longer hakama and then hem it in the future? Do the hakamas shrink at all? Regarding the white "stitching" visible in some of the images, is that just to keep it in shape during transport? Do I cut that out when they arrive?
Can only answer a couple of these questions..
No - I've never had Tozando hak shrink.
Yes - cut the white stitching out
I wear Tozando as do most people in my association. Only once did I buy a cheaper one from them that I really wasn't that happy about....otherwise I've always been satisfied although occasionally annoyed by import tax into UK.
