Does anyone know where/who makes Gi trousers custom made?

The reason I ask is my wife is having trouble with the standard sizes. She has long legs for her height. If she gets pants that fit her hips correctly, they are too short. If she gets pants that are long enough, they are super baggy in the hips. It would be nice to find a Gi manufacturer or tailor that can take measurements and make the pants directly off the measurements.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Do you have a local tailor that might be able to help out? If you take in a pair of uniform pants for them to look over, have her come in for measurements, and figure out what material to use, a local tailor might be the way to go.

Or maybe buy a bigger pair than she needs and get the tailor to take them in?

This is what I always have to do. I have short legs but big thighs and hips, so I have to buy larger sizes to fit the hips, then hem them up. I'm only 5'7"-ish, but I always have to buy sizes 7 and 8 in dobaks.

Thanks for the tips.

We have ordered a size larger and have them hemmed, that does work.
