lol, yeah i used to fold my gi the "traditional way" but that made it all wrinkled and i wasnt about to start ironing it everytime before class so i just usually hang it up now. The only people in class who i think really iron and/or press their gi's every night before class is the senseis. But yeah everyone wher ei go start out with normal gis (not student gi's their too light) then eventually most of the black belts or high belts get heavy wieght gis which everyone seems to like but by the tiem your first gi is all beaten up and stuff you be ready for a heavy weight one and around black belt and everyone seems to liek those alot but they cost like 80 dollars for the pants and a little more for the jacket and even at the price my instructor gets them both for half price because they're instructors so they karate store gives them everything half priced. Thats really the only reason why people buy them light/middle wieght then later heavy wight, or at least the one that makes most sense to me.

Gis are fairly hard to destroy except at the one seminar my senseis went to where they were told to roll in the mud and they said their gi after that was always pretty much brown.

But yeah, white plain old fashioned gi's are my favorite especially when from years of use they get that kidna creamy color to them and they look real cool. Although black gis are pretty cool too but i dont liek the crazy colored ones.

Go to centurymartialarts.com they have what you need. Its called a masters gi but i mean anyone can wear it, the masters doesnt mean anything it just they couldnt think of a different name for it. But you will have to order black trousers sperately, i didnt look to see if they have them but i would think they would.

All these people have been saying light gi's aren't good.I've had a light weight gi and pants for more than a year and the only problem I've had with it is the string to tie the gi falling off,but that doesn't bother me because the belt keeps it closed. Anyways the one thing i would like though is getting a shorter one,not different size just shorter everything.I've heard that the tournamnet cut is good for that.As for the pant's I've heard what you guys are talking about ,but mises are like sweat pants.You just put them on and that's it.

Yeah, i'm not saying light gis are worse but i personally prfer heavy gis to light ones. Its really just opinion but yeah if you want a shorter gi try tournament cut cause i'm pretty sure they are shorter.

if you have absolutely no grappling in your school, than a light gi is acceptable. Otherwise, it is a safety hazard.
