    I just recently graded to 1st Dan and am wondering where I can buy the lining for the suit online. My suit is relatively new so if possible I'd like to avoid forking out for another one. I've typed in everything but I'm not really sure what to call it so I've been struggling to find it > . <

    if it's an itf style uniform just search for 1 inch thick black satin ribbon on google or go into your nearest alteration shop. hope this helps

    Use a sharpee! j/k. Sewing on black ribbon sounds good, but if I were you and had just got a new plain white uniform before reaching 1st black I'd probably give it away or sell it for cheap and get the all awesome black trimmed uniform for myself. Of course, my dan grade is in kukkiwon tkd and you can't exactly just sew on ribbon on the wtf style v-neck.

    Or Mandors then go down the hill and the wee alterations tailor in the Savoy centre will put it on for you for much cheapness.

    Is Remnant Kings still there? I thought that shut down donks ago. That's a handy hint for the Savoy though.....

    The ribbon you are looking for is called grosgrain ribbon.

    1st floor in the Frazers building from either Buchanan St or Argyle St by the stone doorways not the shop ones.

    Any I have seen are flat satin not crossgrain which is textured.

    That's waht I thought, I may not be a TKD guy but I know my fabrics. Used to sell menswear in the Men's wearhouse upstairs from where Remnant Kings is now.

    Crossgrain and satin are the trad choices for tuxedo/dinner jacket trim.

    I was planning on getting a federation approved yudan ja dobok once I pass my dan grading. However, I was thinking of this sort of an alteration for my jae ja dobok, so I can use it in training. I also dislike the wastefulness of having to have different uniforms at different stages.
    Actually my jae ja dobok is probably illegal for competition (especially tul) as it's 100% cotton and people have been known to starch those to rock-hardness as an audible compensation for poor technique.
