93 Brand's newest release is an incredibly comfortable gold weave Gi. Named after the Greek letter Tau, representing torque in physics... and what would your kimura or toe hold be without precious torque!?
Graphics are done with a light blue outline and white interior, giving this kimono a very clean and bright white look. The jacket is remarkably comfortable, thoroughly reinforced with ample stitching at each seam and a sleek "position/submission" taping along the cuffs and jacket interior. Equipped with a firm collar that's wrapped in a unique brushed cotton, also used for the side vents, jacket skirt, and Gi pants.
We love these brushed cotton pants because they're remarkably soft against the skin, but not easily gripped by your opponent. The same fabric is used for the knee reinforcement layer, beginning just above the knee. Often you'll see knee reinforcements end too soon, causing them to slide above the knee once you start grappling. 93 Brand's reinforcements end approximately 3 inches from the bottom hem. This way your knees are protected without adding too much weight to the pants. Cinched up by a white stretch cord and 6 loops.
The 93 Brand only used high-quality embroideries, no woven or sewn on patches. And they certainly didn't skimp on fabrics, using an impressive brushed cotton and gold weave. If you want a functional Gi that looks awesome and feels great, here you go!
this gi is worth its regular price. comfy as hell and looks so fresh and so clean
I'm 5'9" at 255lbs. What size would be the best fit? A4 or A2H?
A2H goes up to 240 lbs maximum, I wouldn't recommend going for A2H unless you are cutting weight.
A4 is a better choice, although intended for someone a bit taller, it would work for you after some warm washes and dryer cycles on Medium Heat.
I'm 235 5'11. The A2H top is perfect. The pants however too snug. Go A4. Warning though. 93 Brand gis don't shrink much in my experience.
@todei79 - Yes, in general 93 Brand Gis are thoroughly pre-shrunk so there isn't much shrinkage. However the Tau is the one exception to that! The Tau will shrink like most Gold Weaves.
Nice looking gi! Noted for the future
How exactly would the A1L compare to the A2?
- Are the sleeves of the A1L longer than the A2?<br>
- Is the jacket length of the A1L longer than the A2?<br>
- Is the pant length of the A1L longer than the A2?
Would it be possible to get those dimensions for those two sizes? I am really concerned of sleeve and pant length being too long.
I am almost 5'9" and around 170lbs but I have a slim frame (I look more like 160lbs probably) with a short torso and proportionately long arms. The only reason I want a new gi is for a better fit than my current one so sizing is very important for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
Last 93 Brand gi I bought was the Charlie. Now, I'm on the end, statistically, of their A2 ( 5'11" 184lbs). That thing fit like a tent, it was almost down to my knees, big enough chest for someone with a massive beer gut, and the sleeves were 5" passed my finger tips on BOTH arms. I'll not likely buy another 93 brand, which is a shame because they look damn fine.
I am 6' 180lbs, what size will work best?
Is it ibjjf legal?
I've competed with this Gi in IBJJF comps with no problem.
The IBJJF diagram says that only a brand label can be on the shin, so the "93. finest. technique." embroidery might be a subjective call on the ref's part.
My Gi checker didn't say anything, however the shin embroidery has been pointed out as IBJJF illegal by my friend who is an IBJJF referee.
Hey guys I'm an idiot and have never done jits and can't read a size chart what size should I get!?
I'm 5'9. 190 lbs what size is best? I plan to wash cold and hang dry. Thanx!
A2 should work for you.
6"4" 270....A4 I'm assuming?
A5 is way too big on me but idk how 93 brand does their cut...I'm like a A3 waist but A5 Pant length. Are there gi tailors out there? Lol
I'm 5'8 and 163 lbs. Should I get an A2 and shrink it? My fuji and tatami gi's are also A2.
Would still like some feedback as I'm hoping to change my gi size if needed. Seeing reviews that the gi doesn't shrink much.
Yes, A2 is the best choice for you.
6' 215 lbs. What size is best?
I recommend A3, just make sure you cold wash & hang dry.
It'll work great as long as you like a modern type of fit.
If you like an old school, relaxed fit, then you should go with the A4 and use warm washes until you get the desired fit.
5'9 and 135lbs. A1T or A1F. I think I'll go for A1T
I mean A1L
A1L is a good choice, for sure.
I am 5 foot 8 210 pounds would the a2h be a good fit
Yes, Steve, A2H is a good choice.
After a wash it should be right on point!
