Shrinkage

The Fabric weaves which we use in constructing the Gi are 100% cotton, pre-shrunk material, Sulfurize, Mercerized, and Anti-Bacterial treated. But as you know Cotton is a natural fiber “the fabric is alive” meaning that sweat and moisture affect it, which become the cause of shrinks and expands of cotton. Therefore even pre-shrunk treated there is always the chance of shrinkage. Our Top and Pant fabric weaves could shrink at the following rate: Gi Top Fabric Shrinkage Rate: 2-3% Gi Pant Fabric Shrinkage Rate: 2-3%

Custom Sizing & Measuring

Our goal is to produce for you a Gi that is about 1 inch plus or minus from your requested measurement. We recommend always adding a little more to compensate for differences in regards to shrinkage and the production process. We usually detect the measurement but you need to account for the fact that humans are making these Gis and they are made out of a fabric that is inherently unstable. Shrinks in the wash/dry cycle and also reacts to changes with sweat and moisture.

Standard Sizing

We have the Guidelines based on body weight on the Size Chart page for selecting the right size for you.
