    I'm voting for Red as its the only colour I haven't had. (apart from other, which could be mulberry, or truffle I guess?)

    I'd choose blue or red, but because I have a black gi, I personally think red contrasts the uniform much more.

    Green is definitely favourite, comes from burning love for the Three Ninjas movies as a child. And also, GREEN RANGER! I love blue too though.

    Belt? What belt?

    White Gets dirty too easily
    Yellow A good first step. (Also doubles as a high-vis system when on a bike)
    Orange Stains the Gi yellow for some odd reason
    Green Not bad
    Blue Turned my yellow stain into a green stain... moderately acceptable
    Red Fades too easily
    Purple A purple band is a sign of mourning in Italy (where I come from)
    Brown Only if made of leather, with a tailored suit to match
    Black Makes you go invisible, right? Or is this the one that gives you supernatural powers? Oh wait... it's just a first step towards learning a complex art ;)
    Other ...hmm... camo? studded? flashing-led? Neon? Maybe another time...

    Red is the best for me. Looks great on our black suits. Unfortunately about 13 years ago "someone" gave me a Black one and said I have to wear that now, you can hardly see it! LOL

    IMO I would have to say that red is my favorite. Our gi's are black in Kenpo and it goes well with the red.

    Our gis are blue I always liked the way the brown look on them. Red would prob be a close second.

    Almost all of my shirts are black, so I would really say "Black" :D. But Red and Blue looks good too.

    Black is still the coolest for me. I'd say Red comes in next.

    Blue. Simply enough, back when I was in Tang Soo Do, blue was the color of the highest rank in the one I went to.
    Never reached it there, but later on I joined a Tae Kwan Do and got a blue belt... well...

    Green to me is the first sign of strength of course in our style the belts are White, Yellow, orange, blue, green, brown, black and then Red when you get to 10th dan. I respect anyone within the style I train in at green belt belt level as proficient fighters. Of course I want my black belt but I'll get there with time.

    Blue or black... Blue is a nice color that calms down and black is a classic color.

    Yellow is my fave color. I got mine in feb and put it on and I thought it looked so pretty and bright! =]

    and I had people like my senseis told me how pretty it was and i looked so good in yellow. :)

    after that i think i like orange, and then blue. They're my fave color belts.
