    I'll apologize now, let the reaming begin.

    When you buy a gi, does it come with a white belt?

    attn sir037 - you ask a very legitimate and significant question. The following HCK gis come with a standard issue White Belt: STANDARD SINGLE and COMPETITION SINGLE. Only the COMPETITION DOUBLE and ABSOLUTE do not come with a belt.

    Most decent places will throw in a whitebelt IF you ask them ahead of time. If you have trouble let me know and I'll send you to some well known companies that will.

    I was under the impression that most gis came with a white belt. Hell my cheap ass no name gi (that I got ripped off for but that's another topic) even came with one

    Better gis usually don't, because companies assume that someone buying a $200 gi already has a colored belt.

    While it has been over a year since I last ordered a gi, neither of my Atama or Rednose gis came with belts. But I don't think I'd let the belt make my decision on which gi I bought. Like someone said, ask ahead. I think scorcho's right-- think about the expense of shipping white belts out with each gi, when realistically, how many of those gis are going out to higher belt holders?

    HCK, Atama, Kikskin and a few others do come with white belts but most do not. I will include a Gameness or HCK belt (white or colored) at cost if asked when placing an order for a gi.

    It's not really an issue with regards of choosing a gi. I just want to be prepared for when I start class. Thank you all for your input.

    I'm not sure why you're concerned about it -- you're a blue belt. :D
