    I have only seen a handful of their products, but generaly the response from others who have purchased from them is pretty positive. Not much help, but better than none I suppose.

    I have a hakama from Daimyo Outfitters, and it's very well made. The fit is really good, and the price wasn't too bad. My only complaint is with the material, but that's as much my fault as anyone's. I got the "medium cotton" which is lighter weight than what I wanted. But he gives you lots of options for materials. IIRC, it took about 3 weeks to get, which is just what he said.

    I have a lined montsuki, a keikogi, and a han juban from him. The prices are quite resonable for custom clothing, and the quality is good.

    Default My experience

    I ordered a keikogi. The first to arrive was a different color than I expected. I have a crappy laptop and am colorblind, though. The fir was not good, though. I sent it back and got another in a different color for free. It fits better, but the collar is still drooped like a woman's. It's pretty light fabric, I think the Lightweight. It was really inexpensive.

    Because I'm such a skinny dude, I should have sent a photo. I think the fitting probs. must have been my fault after reading the above posts. I have definately considered a hakama from them.

    Steve, if you mean the back of the collar was off the neck, then actually that's not a bad fit -- looks pretty cool actually.

    I've never heard that before. Anyway, the color didn't turn out to be what I expected the second time, too. I wear my gi for kendo I got recently now. >>maybe I should wash the two together and see what happens?

    I think it's a personal preference thing...women wear the emon (collar) way off the neck -- the more the sexier; guys usually have the emon right on the neck, but I think that looks a bit stuffy; I like to pull it down a bit and straighten out the whole back, especially across the shoulders...my wife likes it when I wear it a bit off the neck.
    Then again for practice you move around so much it's basically pointless!

    They way I was taught was to wear it so that the collar is upright, but not against the neck. One of my kendo manuals (I'm pretty sure it's the ZNKR dictionary) mentions that wearing the collar off the neck is inappropriate for practice.

    I guess keiko isn't the time for tarting it up.

    'Collar up' sounds about right to me.

    As for tarting it up during practice, I remember last month at the 26th Annual Kobudo Enbu there were several schools featuring women in full traditional kimono kicking major butt with jo and naginata; several of them stupendously attractive. Use what you got!
