    In this case I just have you beat by proximity. Kinji San, who are the ones behind Ronin Brand, are in the neighborhood I grew up in.

    Awesome. Ronin are my favs by far. Not too expensive, and they complement my dashing good looks. They don't mind frequent washings & drying either.

    I got a really good judo gi from canbox.

    I love it, but i can't fit it in my bag without having to throw out other gear, which i usually use in class like shin guards or boxing gloves.

    Maybe i should just get a bigger bag or something.

    Anyway, i wore a karate gi to grapple, and it got ripped in half(the lighter ones)

    Ahmed, do you ever carry your gi around on a clothes hanger? I find it helps A) keep it neater (especially after it gets soaked) and B) frees up bag space.

    When you email the guy for info he'll send you an excel sheet to fill in with your body measurements just like when shopping for suits. While Christo currently doesn't custom size (yet) he will ensure you get the best stock fit possible. And I don't mean the standard weight and height size chart - they want measurements around your wrists, biceps, chest, etc. Since you're not in the market for a Judo competition legal dogi let em know about that and maybe they can get you a smaller size that still wears well.

    Quality wise these things are top notch too. They've been getting rave reviews on judoforum.com and a few judoka in the Olympics were sporting Fushida. Their top of the line "Icon" compares to my Adidas Champion very well, but the Icon is cut more like a BJJ dogi (a bit baggier than most BJJ dogi - this is a Judo competition gi after all) and at $135 they're $100 cheaper.

    These look awesome. I think I might get one before they become popular and the prices go up.

    How do you carry that on the bus with all your other gear though?
