Creating the perfect Gi...

Hi All, I was wondering what makes the perfect Gi for you...what type of qualities do you look for when buying a Gi?

I'm really curious and your input would be greatly appriciated. Thank you.

Material:
- Cotton
- Rip Stop
- Hemp
- Other?

Type of weave:
- Pearl
- Comb
- Single
- Double
- Triple (Hyabusa)
- Other?

Thickness:
- Air
- Feather
- Light
- Medium
- Heavy

Design / Style
- Classic, simple
- Bling / "New school"
- Any specific patchwork?
- Big designs, small designs?

Color
- White
- Blue
- Black
- Red
- Two-toned?
- Heather Grey?
- Other?

Size / availability:
- What size are you looking for?
- Preshurnk or not?
- How do you feel about specifically made Gi's for Women and Children

Extras:
- Gi bag
- Extra set of pants (lighter one for competition / one for training)
- Tournment approved

Once again your thoughts and posts and reading is much appriciated.

- Brian

hey i have gone thru a good amount of gis and im no expert but i like this idea lol

material: anything but rip stop (it sucks i hate it!)
weave: single is my fav just because it feels better
thickness: medium because lights dont give a good enough sweat during training and heavy is too heavy for me
design: i like the drago design with the brazil flag on one shoulder with the brand patch down the lapel
colour: any colour is good. red is my fav colour but i wear usually white gis because tradtional is awesome
size: a2 preshrunk
extra: like ur idea of the gi bag saves me from dragging my gym back on runs to the gym

thats all cheers!
