    So **** your consensuses. The gis may suck, but the people who wear them are usually the awesomest in class.
    Have your parents been killed by high quality gi lovers?

    Alternatively, a few bucks will get you a cheap sewing kit. That and some time and effort will get you an untorn gi.

    I live in Serbia. The best gis we have are 20 euro ones (that's approx. 2000 dinars).

    Read the OP about the consensus being that gis will get torn up by zombies, or something.

    Well, nothing you wrote disproves this.

    When I was a kid my parents bought me an unbleached matsuru gi, that they don't even sell anymore. The trousers ripped during a ferocious randori with a Polish guy who was way better at Judo than me, but the gi top is still good to this day. Not a single rip, tear or loose thread on it.

    Unlike my top of the range fighting films gi and my gold toraki both of which are showing their age after only 4 years of use.

    What the **** are you talking about son? Too much cough syrup? I asked about cheap, mass manufactured poly cotton blend hapkido gis. And you're crying about torn judo gear or something.

    For those of you following my sad trajectory, I continue wearing the pink gi....

    I thought Serbian gis were made from Croatians.

    You're right. My bad. Only noticed the hapkido part this morning.

    Your trolling. It needs a little work. Your history needs some work as well.
