*Not pre-shrunk - wash cold and hang dry*

This particular batch has greater deviations in wing span and pant length than expected. 

If you are in the middle of your size and usually have some room for shrinkage we recommend you go at least half a size up. If you are at the top of your size we recommend you go a full size up. 

A0/A0L -> A1

A1S/A1 -> A2

A1L/A2 -> A2L

A2/A2L -> A3

A3/A3L -> A4

Our gis are not preshrunk so if you have 1-2 inches of room in your wingspan you can shrink by washing it hot and/or drying it. Otherwise we recommend to wash cold and hang dry. 

We highly recommend you take a close look at the size chart below to make sure you are ordering the correct size.

Nice embroidery but that's about it

When the product arrived, the inside of the gi was filled with loose threads and unfinished seams which started to unravel after the first training session and machine wash. Both the gi and the gi bag had an awful smell which hasn't gone away after few washes and airing them at the balcony for long periods of time. The gi bag had a lot of fabric without seams that have been fraying badly. The prints of the gi bag and the inside of the gi have been peeling even after the first gentle machine wash. The contrast stiching of the lapel has also started to unravel. Considering the price tag and the high expectations towards the brand, the end result have been a huge disappoinment to me. The embroidery looks amazing but if I would have the chance to make the decision again, I wouldn't buy this product even with a discount.
