Just as the gi-poll ends, I get news that Vince has new info about the gis he's been working on. Check it out and be sure to share your thoughts via forum. -Luke
I have finalized the KDT Kimono. They will be offered in WHITE only, lightweight goldweave (750gsm) and 500gsm cotton drill pants. The collar is sturdy and thick like Gameness with the jacket fitting like Atama (lots of room to move in the shoulders and lats). No back seam and tapered waistline. All seams are reinforced triple stitching where needed. Minimal logos on the kimono.
This is NOT the premium kimono but a mid-range for those not wanting to spend US$200+ or less than $50 for a cheap kimono which will fall apart or has a bad fit.
This is SHRINK TO FIT gi. Here I am wearing A3 after 1 wash and machine dried (heck, I can't wait around for the sun to do its work - I'm busy dammit!)
I'm 178cm (5"10"-ish) and around 170lbs, 77kg. The kimono weighs in about 2.5kg and I can afford to wash and machine dry it to shrink a few more times before it stops shrinking (I'm estimating another 3 times).
Let me know your thoughts based on the pictures.
I'll be marketing them at RM259.99 / US$ 81.00 when the stock arrives. Place your orders asap. Thank you!
