Despite prevailing trends for Japan to outsource construction, swordstore takes great pride in offering the best quality products available. Each manufacturer uses slightly different templates and garments are worn differently by different people. Therefore we suggest that you follow the clothing guide and provide your physical specifications whenever possible.
When your garment arrives, keep the packaging. In the instance of hakama, lay the hakama hako (backboard) against your back at the appropriate location to determine correct height before removing the stays and packing threads. It is a good idea to drape the uwagi, montsuki, and iaigi across the back to check size as well. Tabi can be placed against the foot.
As swordstore does not sell used clothing we can only accept for return those articles in new condition for resale.
