This outfit is a traditional as I could manage. The hakama is extremely accurate with the exception of a removable plastic frame in the back so the koshi-ita would be stiff. Outfit is complete with kimono and nagajuban. I had a little difficulty with the sash, since it is not an tied like an obi. I appologize for the poor pictures. (My camera broke). I made this costume for a customer and would be happy to make again in the future.
black duck (hakama) navy twill (moderate weight, kimono) I don’t recall what I used for the nagajuban. I remember it was a breathable fabric.
