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!
Nice! Got one. Needed a great looking white gi!

Really looking forward to some blue and purple gis! Please put some up!
Is it pre-shrunk?
The fabric is washed, however all Gis will experience some shrinkage (despite being labeled as "preshrunk").
Gold weaves are more prone to shrinkage than Pearl weaves, and white Gis are more prone to shrinkage than colored Gis (due to the color dye process removing some more shrinkage).
That being said, white Gold weaves are susceptible to shrinkage so there will be some shrinkage with the Tau. Out of the bag, it is cut like the Goose and Charlie, however it will shrink more than those Pearl weaves.
5'7 175 athletic build what size should i get
when do you start to ship to Norway?
Your height is best for A1, but your weight is best for A2. I'd say it's safer to go with an A2 and worst case scenario do a little "shrink to fit" to get the perfect fit.
I recommend a cold wash and then 5 minute intervals on "low heat" to check the shrinkage.
