    I understand, look up the price on a Mizuno Judo gi.

    But, your a black belt, some people want that "look."

    my mizunos were expensive (i managed to get them on sale though) but what i really want is a kusakura judogi. things that are made in japan are just better made in general. if i was a karate guy, and i wanted the "best" gi, i would look for one made in japan.

    Warrior Meijin. I don't know if you can get them over there but they are a strong canvas gi and they are tough. They also have air holes in the armpit as well as extra reinforcing for the usual tear zones.

    I wear a Meijin gi.

    It was comparatively cheap for a decent quality one ($60, I'm pretty sure.) the stitches are fairly strong, but the sleeves get on my nerves so I roll them up.

    My other gi before that was a lightweight Kamikaze gi and it was okay. Too light for my taste, though.

    Zraven - I don't recommend these (I regret to say, because as a Canadian company, I really wanted them to be good ...). I've read a lot of negative on the web about their product and customer service.
