    Best and worst

    In my Tang Soo Do school the black belts wear black pants and a white, wrap around dobok top trimmed with black (a.k.a. the Century "master's" jacket).


    It looks classy, but it's extremely difficult to prevent the white portion of the jacket from becoming dingy (due to the black fabric bleeding out over time and dirt from the mat being ground into it), and because of the black trim, one cannot bleach the jacket. I have learned Oxy-Clean-Jitsu. So it looks great, but isn't the most practical uniform (I'd prefer all black).

    In the really bad category, I submit the following:


    It's a closeout... I think because M.C. Hammer is suing for copyright infringement...

    Seems to me the best uniforms are those that fit properly, are suitable for the art, and are clean! :cool:

    The worst are those that don't fit, aren't suitable for their purpose, and/or aren't clean! :eek:

    In my cupboard, I have a Kuk Sool Uniform, Sombo jacket, Judo gi, and Savate integrale... I wouldn't wear the judo gi in a savate competition or the savate integrale at a sombo event, but that doesn't mean they are bad uniforms...

    Topher allo!

    Just ask your instructor. Most clubs will uaully always get their supplies from the same place. They should offer specific gi's if you ask. Heavy/light weight etc. Just ask.

    The Dobok in the picture is probably just a normal uniform with a black trim.

    The black belts would wear those tops plus black pants in my former Tae Kwon Do school.

    It looked really cool!

    My favorite gi is the kendo uniform, the hakama and keikogi - both in black. It looks awesome.

    My second is the Kung Fu gi. All black looks awesome, but white looks better, especially with a black shirt under it with the jacket open. I know, I'm such a loser. ^_^

    Third would be the white Karate gi with the black trim. Looks nice.

    The uniform I can't stand is the Muay Thai shorts. o_O They're just so... amusing.

    Oh I don't know... they function well, and look fine on a little Thai Boxer from Thailand... they just don't look quite so fetching on some large pot-bellied Westerner. ;)

    I would venture to speculate that this particular gi in the photo you posted is a heavyweight, 12-14oz. It would still be the same weight w/o the black trim :cool:

    You can buy any heavyweight gi top on the net ;)

    That would be from "They Still Call Me Bruce" (1987)
