    A little background on me. I am a blue under Renzo and an all around Gracie nut-hugger. Well I have been looking to get a Gracie Barra gi for over a year, including having people on this board help, all with no avail. In the US you can really only get Barra gis for particular US schools, and I wanted a Brazil one. The only way to get one was to get it from the Barra Brazil on-line store which has some complicated ordering procedures for US customers. Well anyway, I check my email this morning and Budo Videos is now carrying them. I ordered the blue one the second I saw it and I am psyched. AND THEY HAVE SIZES FOR FATTIES!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, thanks for the heads up bro. Out of everyone, I would've never imagined Budo to carry 'em. Gonna order one from Budo Vids right now..

    I'm getting the black one, damn those are so badass. Sorry Koral, but you're going on the hanger for now.

    I assume wearing one in public would get me some chicks, lol jk

    Agreed. I actually like white and blue the most for gi colors, but that may just be because I am a pretty traditional guy.
