Hakama (袴)

A Noh and kyōgen costume put on after the Kitsuke by tying the front and rear strings to the waist. Many Hakama are ruffled and soft. There are many types of Hakama: the ōkuchibakama, whose rear is made of a thicker, stiffer fabric; the Hangiri, which is shaped similarly to the ōkuchibakama but must be supported with the surface of a tatami mat as the fabric lacks stiffness; the nagabakama, with its long-stretched train, the yubinuki, with its yusoku-style, raised patterns and train extending to the ankles; and the kyōgenbakama, shaped like a typical Hakama and worn by the servant Taro and other characters in kyōgen.
