Nearly new hakama for sale (it's too big)

Good evening,

I have a nearly-new indigo-dyed Besu Co. hakama for sale. My instructor ordered it for me but went with a size too large -- it's a 26 and I need a 24. So, consequently, it's built for someone in the 5'8" to 6' range. It would typically run close to $300 but I'm willing to go lower. I've already set the dye and it's ready-to-wear and go!

Best wishes,
Jonathan

Why not just get it hemmed up?

X2 on what Kent has just said. Just have it hemmed up to your perfect size.

Re: Nearly new hakama for sale (it's too big)

Having hemmed a hakama that was too big (ie both length and width)....

As sizes change, so too does the width and length; so though you may chop the length down, the width/girth remains the larger size, and in my case, resulted in a very awkard fitting hakama.

Yes, it works, but only compared to not having a hakama at all.

YMMV.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate your insight. I did have the hakama hemmed and it definitely fits better after the hemming and 30 minutes in a dryer. However, it still is a bit big in the width/girth but at least it's acceptable.

Best wishes,
Jonathan
