Several of you have asked us recently for uniform recommendations. Many are buying a second gi to work into their rotation, but understandably don't want to take out an additional line of credit to purchase one.
After doing some research for a new gi online, I came across a small, family-owned shop out of California, called Padilla & Sons Kimonos (pronounced pah-dee-yah). Their uniforms are reasonably-priced (below Atama, Krugan, Vulcan, Koral, et al), and the customer service was excellent (they sent me detailed washing instructions and thanked me personally for purchasing their brand).
I received my uniform in the mail today and it definitely exceeded my expectations. It fit really well (cut like a jiu-jitsu uniform) and didn't shrink much after the first wash.
Check them out online at www.matrat.us. Click here for a review. Definitely consider them when you go to buy your next gi.
See you all on the mat -- tomorrow night!
