    Maybe a bit controversial, but who do you feel has the best and worst uniforms/gi's/dogi's, etc. in the Martial Arts?

    This is completely subjective as some people like it flashy and others more traditional.

    I would have to vote for:

    Best: Something about a broken-in White Judo gi. I also think that Blue Gi's (a la BJJ/Judo) are really nice with the right color belt (i.e. BLACK). And although it's not my cup of tea, the Aikidoka in their Hakama are very distinctive.

    Worst: Any american flag gi (a la tournament forms), anything with flames!
    And probably the worst... The Kuk Sool Won uniforms. What is that thing, a dickie?

    Nah, that's okay. They do look kinda silly. Yes, it is a dickie (I tease my instructor by calling it a bib :D). But nobody wears those except black belts, and then only during stuff like tournaments, promotions, etc. For the most part, KSW people wear plain black uniforms, usually with a few patches sewn on. Which I like better than the white uniforms, because they're much harder to get dirty. A major plus when you're doing front rolls in a field in middle of summer :)

    Best: traditional Kung Fu.

    Worst: Modern Wu Shu. Whoever came up with bouncing around in faux silk pajaymas needs a serious day with the "Queer Eye" crew!

    Taekwondo (both ITF and WTF) uniforms are very comfortable. I'm also a fan of hakamas.

    Um, a yukata is a bath robe...

    Not necessarily. It's just a light kimono worn in summer. It's sometimes used as a bath robe, but it's worn on many other occassions as well. Still, it's not involved with hakama, and I don't think it's something you'd wear in the dojo.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAA.....they might kick my butt, but are they funny looking. I think I like the hakamas best and until I saw that picture of the savate guys, the worst is any gi/dobok covered in patches. I've seen them with literally 10-15 patches/stripes/ etc....
