    Default Hakama

    I dry clean mine and it comes out really nice. The dry cleaners I goto the lady is Korean so she is familiar with hakama. Mine is an Iwata cotton indigo straight from Japan and its my 2nd one...

    I never knew how to iron until I became an LEO. Now I iron my uniform every night. It has become a bit of a ritual for me. Everyone thinks I am nuts fornot dry cleaning it but I like the personal connection. Now spray starch is still a mystery to me. I still have some trouble with hakama but no where near as much as I used to

    Just get a job where you have to iron all the time. You'll figure it out.

    Another cultural double-take. Pants over here are an undergarment. At which point I started worrying about what I was reading!

    No, I did not iron her undergarments. It would have been a hoot, though.

    "Another cultural double-take. Pants over here are an undergarment." I wasn't aware of that one; good to know. Over here, panties are women's undergarments, but pants are (usually) an outer garment. "Pants" is an etymological descendant of pantaloons (noun: a man's close-fitting garment for the hips and legs, worn especially in the 19th century, but varying in form from period to period; trousers), however that can lead to another cultural double-take, since "pantaloons" is used in some quarters to refer to women's bloomers.

    You would have gotten into serious trouble for too much starch then!
