Good day all,

Another question entered my head, if I learned correctly the most formal hakama is made from striped sendaihira cloth (千代平) .

But i am noticing 2 kinds of hakama, one with thin stripes and one with thick stripes. Is there a difference between formality or occasion or are they the same, just different stripes :)

Any idea's ?

Cheers,

For so far I have been able to find out :wink_samurai: is that both Hakama can be indeed worn on formal occasions
but the hakama with the thin stripes is the traditional Hakama, the one with the thick stripes is a more modern design Hakama.
I suppose that is the difference (for now :cheeky_samurai: )
