Quick summary is that after speaking with Joe Padilla on the phone I decided he was the guy I wanted to buy a Gi from. We also decided that my needs right now were for durability so I went with a single. Now I'm almost 6'4" and weight about 251 right now so I'm literally on the border between a size 6 and 7. I would rather have my kimono be slightly big than too small so I went with a 7. Now the single weave is more of a Judo cut as you can see by the skirt and these photos are of the out of the box kimono and the directions said I could shrink it to fit better up to 2 inches so if I screw it up the gi will still not be too small. Otherwise the craftsmanship is excellent and the gi is soft and does feel more like a karate gi which is another thing I like about it. The service, cost and product will bring me back for a blue gold weave in the future.
