i was the first person in my school to wear a rash guard. everyone made fun of me, but now, 1 by 1 they are all buying them. i don't care if it looks ghey, if it helps me pivot on my back better and keeps me from getting mat burn, then i'm all for it.
i seem to be the only person who likes the atama gi shorts (they have been discontinued and i seem to have been slowly buying up the last of their stock.) i just wish they didn't have the dumb pockets on the sides (but those are easy to remove.)
the only problem i have with the sprawl shorts is that since they are made for exact waist sizes only, they are not ideal for someone like me who goes up 10lbs when i don't have a fight coming up. sometimes they fit, sometimes they don't.

It allows me to do no-gi grappling and not be very good while avoiding the Blad3 poseur look.

Aren't those nike tops expensive though, dude? The one you're wearing at the throwdowns is like 50 bucks isn't it? I've been looking at them for my sparring, but dunno if I'd wear them on the ground and risk the mat rubbing...
