Re: Miyabi heavy cotton hakama from Nine Circle

Further to my initial post in this thread, I ordered one of these hakama recently and it arrived today. It is indeed a similar construction to the one I had previously purchased, although is very heavy (which I think is great). The himo are very long and I can either tie them twice at the front or leave a bit hanging down inside the hakama. I imagine that problem would vanish for someone with a waist a few inches larger than mine. It makes a very nice swooshing sound when doing tai sabaki
