Re: Tozando Gi jacket

Tozando is based here in Kyoto, and give excellent service in quality gis. I wouldn't bother buying anything handstitched, their usual thick gis are more than adequate, and they have excellent cotton hakama, though it might take weeks for them to get your length (94cm or longer is definitely non-standard in Japan). One warning thing: their lettering (stitched characters) suck bigtime. I was extremely disappointed. There is no replacement of the corner tailor who does theses freehand with a Japanese stitching machine in a few seconds for next to nothing.
