93 Brand's newest release is an incredibly comfortable gold weave Gi.$100
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
I'm 5'10 165lbs on the nose. Should i get an a1L or an a2? I can probably cut 10lbs if I had to but I also read this gi does shrink a bit. Recommendations?
Jiu-jitsu is the gentleman of combat sports. so why are there always people insulting people asking for advice on getting an exact fit. it's not hurting anyone. if you are familiar withe the brand material or cut. help a fellow practitioner out. don't hate. and also word of advice if you are going to leave negative comments about someone else's understanding of the sport for the sake of God don't call it jits.
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...
I actually have both. For the record I am 5'8" and 160ish lbs. NOTHING is longer on the A1L than the the A2. To be honest I bought the A2 because the A1L shrunk so much (never put it in the dryer, never used hot water). The A2 is a lot wider in the pants and sleeves as well as the jacket in general so you might find it annoying in that way.
@Aryia, Mish is correct, the A1L is only longer than an A1... It is not longer than an A2.
Think of it this way: A1L is like an A1 with the *length* of an A2. Essentially, designed for someone who needs the girth/tightness of A1 but needs the length of A2.
The same goes for A2L. It's for someone who has the height/length of A3, but requires the girth and bagginess (or lack thereof) of A2.
Similarly, A2H is for someone who needs the girth/bagginess of A3 but doesn't need the A3 height. Essentially making A2H for someone who has the height of an A2 person but the weight of an A3 person.
Hope that answers your questions!
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.
@Samwise, your Gi may have been mis-labeled, truthfully.
I'm a hair over 6'1" and I'm 183 lbs, the A2 jacket is perfect, though the pants are a bit snug on my fat behind. I'm an A2L. Considering that the A2 was the perfect length for someone 6'1", your A2 should not exceed your fingertips by 5". There was certainly something wrong.
The factory may have stitched an A2 tag on an A4 Gi.
It's happened before. I have an Inverted Gear white Panda that says A2 but when laid on top of an Inverted Gear A3, it's the same size. It's happened with Tatami as well, so not impossible for 93 Brand to get the same mixup.
Shoot an email to email@example.com and I'll make it right.
I am 6' 180lbs, what size will work best?
A2L or A3, depending on how you wash.
If you wash cold and hang dry always, then A2L will work.
If you like warm washes or use the machine to dry, then go for an A3 and then it'll shrink to fit perfectly.
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!
