          I've said it before, I'll say it again: Let's organize an International Hakama Day.

                    I don't wear anything like that outside for special occasions, but I do wear yukata at home in the house sometimes. When I was a teen, I always wore yukata/nemaki at home. But as an adult I find the sleeves too annoying (because of cooking dinner, washing dishes, etc), so I tend not to wear them much anymore.

                      BTW, trying to figure out how to put on the Obi gives me headaches, especially trying to learn how to tie them with pictures, lol

                            Thus the joy of asking you sensei =^o^=

                            Still, I often wear Yakata in the house cuz it's soooooo comfy. Sadly my mum won't let me outside w/ it and my evil neibors think that I will kill them in their sleep. But to be honest they are evil so when I get a iaito/shinken I'll practice somewhere in view to add to their false impression.

                            PS - I just got my aunt in texas into kendo. I am soon going to send her info on the Budokan. (=^o^=)

                              my Uni students walk home in their kit and dont even get funny looks any more when they go to Subways for a sandwich. Be bold and wear it where you want, it might even start a fashion craze...
                              The only time I ever got a funny look was walking to a dojo.... in Kyoto.
