I ordered this twill hakama off of Bu Jin\'s clearence rack and I am pleased with it overall. One hard lesson I\'ve had to learn about Bu Jin is to NOT guess with the sizes. At all. If they tell you something is X inches long, count on it and count on it NOT SHRINKING! I have ordered Gi\'s and accessories from other companies and everything always seemed to shrink. I came to count on it and would order accordingly. Now, I have a Gi and a Hakama from Bu Jin that are both too large for me... but I use them and do not begrudge them in the least. Judging from the usage, I anticipate having both of these items for many years to come. They will not ware out, but then again, they will not shrink either. SO... order your size. Double check your size. If you can find someone with a Bu Jin product, see if they will let you try it on so you can see the size for yourself. But you won\'t be disappointed in their products... good stuff!

When ordering from Bu Jin: SIZE MATTERS. They use a pre-shrunk cotten material that is truly Pre-Shrunk. Having bought Gi on-line in the past, I always ordered a size larger than I needed to handle shrinking. Do NOT do this with Bu Jin! Pants don\'t shrink. Gi don\'t shrink. In fact, I\'ll bet the only thing they sell that MIGHT shrink is their 100% Premier Cotton Hakama. So, when you order, I recommend talking to someone in person, have your measurements precise, measure twice, and if you can... try on the item via someone that already owns one: hakama or gi top or whatever. Then you\'ll know for sure and can further talk to them about the sizes. I have a Gi top that is too big. I wear it anyway, but it is huge. Good luck... experience helps!
