    Can't help much with the sizing, but I do know that they can shrink quite a bit.

    So I think that an A3 will be okay as long as you don't shrink it too much.

    Make sure you look up how to care for your gi, and make sure you wash it after every use.

    Also, I'm not sure how much your credit is worth, but MAS has the same gi for much cheaper plus a free belt.

    Also, another inexpensive gi that seems to get good reviews is the Tatami nova.

    That one comes with a belt too.

    A3 washed cold, hung dry, in the Fuji single weave will fit you perfectly.

    As stated radan53, Fuji's are sold much cheaper elsewhere, but looks like you have no choice due to having store credit.

    Yikes. I have never seen the Victory priced over $100. INSANELY overpriced, IMO.

    I don't think fujis sizing was built for your size. I owned an a2 and am 5'9" 150, a2 fit perfectly but was an inch too short in the sleeves

    If you're confined to that store, then you're basically stuck with a Fuji A3. It won't be a terrible fit, it just definitely won't be a fitted fit.
