Master Ziji (Michael Weichhardt) designed this Daoist Robe for hot climates, while the uniform loses a bit in traditional design it manages to keep the typical Daoist fashion. Another reason for developing this uniform is to have more hand and arm freedom when practicing Taiji sword.
The Uniform comes with a natural robe in cotton/linen and synthetic pants which are highly stretchable for a comfortable performance for movements that require a high amount of flexibility. For traditional reasons this uniform must be tailored as a short Daoist Robe version, it is a style-breaker to request 3/4 sleeves with a long Daoist robe cut. (Badge on chest not included)
First time buying from this store, great experience and service! My uniform fits perfectly to my measurements, very pleased with the quality and well sewn. As with all hand made items, it takes some time to create, but well worth the wait! It feels great, and I can move freely in it when I practice. I will be ordering again from this store, thank you!
