I know my karate uniform is called a gi. Is there a specific name for the kung fu uniform (jacket, pants, sash)?

Im intrested in this thread now, I went on a google search for a name for the "Kung Fu Uniform"

Theres nothing about it at all, its just reffered to as the "Kung Fu Uniform" in all contexts I read.

I have my suspicion that it hasnt been given a name like the "Karate Uniform" is called a Gi/Kaikogi

There is no such thing as a kung fu uniform. The thing you are sometimes asked to wear in a chinese martial arts class is a modern reproduction of old chinese clothing and as such, there is no name for that. It was just normal everyday clothing.

Interesting, but makes sense.

Which is exactly why I'm always a little bit suspicious of Kung Fu schools insisting that you buy the baggy black trousers and insisting you wear a white t-shirt. In Hong Kong, I trained in shorts and what-ever t-shirt I was wearing that day.
