    Hello All,

    I am looking to buy a BJJ gi and was wondering which one is best for my size and which size would I be?

    I am about 5'5 to 5'6 and weight around 170lbs .. wider shoulders waist about 33 .. I was looking at the Gameness GI .. this one .. http://store.gameness.com/g1147-gameness-pearl-gi-black/

    but I want to know which brand might be better for a guy my size as far as comfort and lightness and just all around better gi ... Thank you all !

    Gameness is not a good fit for short and stout. Gameness is more of a lanky fit gi. Some of the wider fitting gi's might fit you in an a1. You may be forced into hemming an inch or two off the pants.

    You could just get a Judo gi since they're more loose fitting than BJJ ones and don't rip as easily.

    Manto classics 4's are a bit roomier than most. They shrink quite a bit though but are cut quite big in the shoulders and chest.
