Anybody required to wear a specific brand competition gi? I am not talking about a specific brand for class, but a required gi that if you want to compete, you have to wear. I am in this situation now and the problem for me lies in that the required gi fits absolutely horrible. My gi brand of choice fits me perfect in A1 and the required brand gi at A0 is still big on me after hot washing/drying three times. I literally feel like I am weaing a parachute. The running joke is that I should try on a kids M3 in the same brand to see if that will fit me. I believe that you compete in what you train in. And I have no problem buying multiples of my preferred gi, which is more expensiive then the required gi, but this is being done in the name of team unity and whatnot which leaves me feeling in a bind. It isn't as if my stuff won't be patched up for affiliation and academy, just not the required gi brand due to crappy sizing. Just venting and seeing how others have handled it.
