Shrinking my hakama
hey there fellow swordsmen/women,
Ive been doing kendo for 5 months now and recently got my lovely gi and 10000 hakama from e-bogu (does that make me a rich boy show off?) and ive noticed that the hakama hangs just a little low, touching the top of my feet. I wear it quite high already so i cant really pull it up any more, and so i was thinking about putting it in a warm wash and shrinking it a little. Is this a good idea? I don't think it would shrink much, and if it shrank a little i think it would fit perfectly.
If this is plausible and im not mad, what would be the best way to go about shrinking it? I don't want to put it in the washing machine as it would feck up all the pleats, so would putting it (folded) into a bucket of warm water shrink it?
Hope someone can help me!
