Hey everyone,

I am looking at ordering a few uniforms for some students, who wouldn't fit into the largest size I can get (To fit 220cm tall).

I am not looking at spending an arm and leg to purchase these uniforms and Belts.ssss

The cheapest I could find was karatemart, who had a size 10 at there largest (they claim good for people up to 80 inches or 350 lbs). Not sure if they are friendly for people shipping outside the US.

I've seen and heard student take 2 Gi's to a tailor in order to make 1 Gi. Surprisingly enough, if I wasn't told that by the student, I'd never suspect; that's how great the tailor was.

Sakura Martial arts has big and tall uniforms up to size 12 (https://www.sakuramartialarts.com/Martial_Arts_Uniforms_Karate_Big_And_Tall_p/uni-9994-a1.htm). Not sure if that's big enough for your guys. As for belts, Kataaro will make belts all the way up to 210 inches long. Another option would be to take a double-wrap belt and have them wear it as a single wrap.
