Cheap BJJ Gi?

I'm just getting into Brazilian Jujitsu for the first time in a formal setting. Where can I get a gi online for a decent price? I'm seeing all these places that are selling them for $120-150. Is that the average price? I'd like to get one for cheaper seeing as I'm not looking for any extravagent gi. And also I know that you get what you pay for so would I be better off just buying the more expensive ones?

There's only one choice for me and it's Padilla & Sons. I just received my second gold weave in the mail. All P&S gis are priced under $95. How reasonable pricing is that?

Fuji or HCK

I used a $25.00 judo gi for my first gi, worked well until I could afford a better one.

You can get a Fuji Gi relatively cheap. They go for about $70 online and the quality is amazing for the price. I love my Fuji and it's my favourite Gi currently. I also own a Koral MKM and a Keiko if that means anything.

For cheap and really good gi

1)padilla -> as good as all the famous and expensive gi out there but at almost 60% to half of the price, the feel is there, weight is there, collar is there. Only the design and cutting is questionable otherwise all is good.
2)Fuji -> single weave , look good and i can see that they hold up well with abuse, one of my bjj mate using them
3) heavy and strong and rough and good collar -> Hck if u dun mind being abit uncomfortable

Add on to the list. not to forget. Gameness, one of the best selling gi of all time.

Their platinums and pearls. I did put them on top of padillas, or perhaps just below. If im to choose a cheap , good and lasting gi. Just my opinions. Cheers
