      Noble Cousins!

      Greetings from Solveig! Line drawings in Edo Fukushokushi suggest that
      extensive pleating of hakama may be a Meiji era innovation. Certainly,
      thre are photographs of hakama in the nuikata book which have very little
      no pleating. Having worn modern hakama, I can safely say that they are
      much more extensively pleated than the hakama depicted in either book.
