    Do you by chance have a link for the state uniforms? That sounds really cool.

    No they were special order forms sent to USAT members that qualified for the Nationals, it is not listed in their regular catalog.

    Anyone worn the Vision or Pine Tree Sang Moo Sa brands? Well actually I think the Vision has too much embroidery on it; I mean I don't want the Olympic rings on my dobak. Perhaps Vision is intended for those training for the team though?!
    I have one of the Sang Moo Sa Doboks, but not V-Neck.. They are a little bit cheaply made IMO. Not worth it when you can pay a little more and get a much better Dobok from Mooto or addidas.

    Having used both, I prefer the light Dobak for sparring, and the heavier style for forms. Although, the "lightest" (ex., Mooto Exterra) ones for sparring competition can be just as expensive as the "heavy" ones.

    I tried to figure out where I might fit on the sizing chart on this page, but it didn't seem to compute.

    I'm 6'4" and weigh in at about 250 lbs., and after conversions, I didn't seem to fit into the chart at all.

    Anyone know how a Century size 6 might translate?

    My Century V-Neck is a little bit big on me.. It's a size 5.. I weigh about 200 lbs. and right at 6'..

    The size numbers are supposed to be equivalent to a height in cm. A size 6 uniform is a 200cm uniform. It should fit someone up too 6' 6". The weight may concern you, because they figure that at 6' 6" you should weigh about 210lbs. However the elastic waistband should stretch just as well as your Century uniform.

    For your size and weight I would try a size 7. I wear a size 6. I am 6' even and 195lbs. The pants are a little long but all I have to do is fold over the waist band. I have worn a size 5 and they fit me, but the top feels a little too short, so I prefer a size larger. On that chart that you linked, it only goes up to a size 6, but they sell a size 7. I suspect that a size 7 will fit you the way a size 6 fits me. Of course, if a 7 is a little too long you can always get the trousers hemmed!

    I'd also suggest trying the 7.
    I'm 6'2-3" and wear a 6(200). The Mooto uniforms are slightly larger than other companies, I think a 7 will fit you easily.

    Thanks.

    I've dropped between 15 and 20 lbs since I started training, despite adding a good bit of muscle mass. "Weight" is just a dodgy way to determine much of anything, really.
