I am looking for a black gi because that is our gyms main color and I look terrible in white, lol. I checked their black gis, but they were all sold out of my size. Also do you recommend buying top and bottoms separate for someone like me? I am a bigger guy, but I am short for a A5 or A6 gi. Those gis are meant for guys well over 6 foot tall but I am only 5'10.

Yes if it is an option get whatever will be most comfortable. You can always hem long pants but then the extra material in the knee area will be more on your shin.

Is it worth the extra money to buy a nice gi when you are just learning? I saw some really nice ones that look like they are more comfortable than the "value" gis. But I am not sure if it is much different.

93 brand is a comfy gi. I have a mixture of expensive gis and cheap ones. I keep 2 expensive ones for comp purely. And my other ones are strictly training. I just bought one for $70 from the same company that makes Shoyoroll. It is just a blank gi.

I actually do not know. I train with Ricardo "baleia" Amendolia. (He does commentary for flo and commentates ADCC) anyways, i tjink he gave a girl at my gym some contact for it and she does orders from time to time. Can't beat $70cdn for a gi.
[DOUBLEPOST=1552079018][/DOUBLEPOST]Also Killer Bee does some great custom gis. I bought one a few years ago and it held up for quite awhile.

So it looks like I have no choice but to pony up the big bucks and get a fully custom gi due to my body type. I am just too fat for my height so it is impossible to find anything in my size. I am currently working with rollbliss.com to get my gi made. The best part is, I am working with the person who is going to make my gi so we will be in constant communication to make sure I get the perfect fit. I am excited, I just wish I could get a cheap gi like I got my son, lol.

I think you're going to love your custom gi and be glad you got it despite the cost.

My gi should be here on Friday. I have already seen the final product, now I can't wait to try it on.

god damn that looks sweet though. Do you like it?
The pants fit great. The top, not so much. It is a bit snug for my liking. Plus they didn't send me a belt and what I spent on this gi, they should have given me a belt.
