As I said on the last post for uniform brands, I prefer Shureido uniforms.

I have a couple of Blitz 'Silver Tournament' brand gi's, they're very good and value for money too. I also really like my Tokaido gi too. Very expensive, but very worth it!
Try www.playwell.com , their stuff is always good quality, although I find their own-brand gi's to be a bit short in the jacket length.
www.karate-kid.co.uk and www.meijin.co.uk are good suppliers too, especially Meijin. Their stuff is always shipped very quickly!

I was a Tokaido snob, but now have switched to Meijin.

Yes, I'd definitely recommend Kamikaze (Red label) but another top quality suite - in various weights - can be seen at

Their International suit will last you forever.
